Danielle Kaiser is a local New Jersey girl, having grown up in West Orange, NJ and attended West Orange High School. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a minor is Psychology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She then went on to complete her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Dominican College, now known as Dominican University of New York.
Danielle was a competitive and dedicated synchronized figure skater growing up, earning an opportunity to be a part of Team USA. She competed for 14 years, and coached for another three while finishing her physical therapy schooling. During her time competing, Danielle sustained several knee injuries and underwent her own courses of physical therapy treatments throughout her skating career. It was through these experiences that Danielle fell in love with the idea of rehabilitating patients using manual interventions and targeted exercise. Danielle is passionate about helping people return to their former lifestyles and applies the same dedication she had for skating to her patients’ wellbeing.
With her background in athletics, Danielle has a special interest in treating active individuals, especially figure skaters and dancers. She loves the challenge of balancing flexibility, strength, and stability in order for these athletes to perform at their best. She enjoys treating the orthopedic population and would eventually like to earn Board Certification as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS). Danielle tries to motivate her patients to stay active and heal their bodies from the root cause of their issues.
Outside of the office, you can find Danielle creating new recipes for her family and friends to try. She also loves to attend concerts, food festivals, going to the beach, skiing, and loves to keep herself sharp by staying active.
