At Zuppa Physical Therapy, patient care is top priority. Patients receive a comprehensive, biomechanically-driven evaluation and treatment plan customized for their specific impairments and functional limitations.

We provide individualized, one-on-one physical therapy sessions using evidence-based therapeutic techniques. Our distinctive treatment focuses on manual therapy, complimented with expert exercise prescription and patient education. Our mission is to attain successful, long-lasting outcomes for our patients by treating the source of the condition, instead of the symptoms.

At Zuppa Physical Therapy, our practice is driven by superlative care, and not by sheer patient volume. We treat a wide variety of conditions including general orthopaedic, post-surgical care, sports-related injuries, and neuromuscular rehabilitation.

Our goal is excellence in all facets of physical therapy.

  • Dr. Zuppa is a miracle worker! His “hands-on” approach has helped me to regain flexibility and movement that I have not enjoyed since my early years! (I’m nearly 60). Thanks to Dr. Zuppa I have been able to return to my exercise regimen of cardio and weight training after years of neglect! Thank you Dr. Zuppa!
  • As a 70 year old woman, I have had several opportunities to participate in physical therapy: torn meniscus, back, spine ailments, sciatica, and plantar fasciitis. I have seen a few physical therapists, but no one possesses the expertise and the compassion of Angelo Zuppa. Angelo’s patients receive his complete attention, his incredible skill, his compassion, and “joy". His evaluations are thorough and his treatments of my conditions were very successful. With Angelo’s treatment regimen, my torn meniscus healed without surgery and I now go biking, hiking, and down hill skiing with no problems. (He does expect that his patients participate in therapy and sends them home with exercises to enhance his treatments. Be sure to do them!) I drive 50 minutes to seek his service and would never go elsewhere! In fact, I wish I could think of a reason to seek treatment so I could see his friendly face and hear his infectious laugh! :)
  • There are many good physical therapists and then there is Angelo "The Healer". He is amazing! His knowledge and approach has helped myself and many friend. My body thanks him everyday.
  • I have seen Dr. Zuppa for a number of issues, including joint replacement therapy. His competent, confident, sociable manner help put you at ease during your therapeutic sessions. He spends a lot of time with you, as he doesn’t rely on machines; he’s really “hands-on”. He’s kind, compassionate, and really listens to you to determine your problem and then fully explains how his course of action will help you. I have referred several friends and family members to Angelo and all have given him rave reviews. He’s extremely competent and I recommend anyone seeking physical therapy to see Angelo. You won’t be disappointed.
  • Angelo Zuppa is the best physical therapist ever! He is hands on, caring, obviously has a passion for what he does, and is truly someone who wants to make you better!
