DuaneScotti

In one word, TRUST. You can trust Duane Scotti to provide you with exceptional healthcare. My daughter is a competitive gymnast and has seen Duane every other week (pretty much) for 6 months. He has treated her for reoccurring heel pain and overall leg flexibility (and other aches and pains here and there). He has kept her in top condition despite the daily abuse her body takes from this relentless sport. He is excellent at listening to the athlete’s concerns, treating the problem, teaching the athlete how to maintain her health, and communicating with the parent. I highly recommend Duane, he is beyond exceptional.

Kirsten S. (Gymnast Mom)

Knowing that Duane fully understands the dance world and what it takes to be a dancer makes physical therapy with him one of a kind. He is able to personalize my rehabilitation and have me ready for whatever competition, performance or training I had coming up. Our sessions were always filled with laughter and I always felt like I was able to understand each step of the healing process. I felt stronger and more prepared to continue my rigorous dance training after my treatment with Duane! I would highly recommend Spark Physical Therapy to any performer and I’m grateful that I’ve had the experience to learn and work with them!!

Allie E. (Dancer)

SPARK Physical Therapy was instrumental in my recovery of from achilles tendinitis. I visited a podiatrist who said I would need surgery to shave down a bone spur and Haglund’s Deformity. The recovery would be at least 8 weeks and at the time I was 24 weeks from running the NYC Marathon. Duane evaluated me and said I needed to work on my calf muscle and flexibility. We started treatment with dry needling and specific exercises that I could do on my own. The pain subsided and even after some long runs everything was starting to feel better. I will tell you that I ran and finished the NYC Marathon without pain or issues from my achilles. Had I not met Duane about a week after my podiatrist appointment I would have needed to defer my marathon and probably would still be recovering from the surgery. I was able to run through my injury safely and achieve my goal. The refreshing thing about SPARK Physical Therapy is they do not push for ton of session. I met my running goals in 10 sessions spread out over 3-4 months. Big Thank you to Duane and I highly recommend seeing him for any running injury you may have!
