Joe Rifino is a graduate of North Salem High School. After graduation, he attended the University of Connecticut, and then earned his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Physical Therapy from SUNY Stony Brook in 1999. He currently treats in Yorktown Heights and serves as Regional Director for our Cortlandt Manor, Fishkill, Pleasant Valley, Rhinebeck, and Yorktown Heights locations.

Over the course of his career, Joe has participated in extensive continuing education courses emphasizing manual therapy techniques and spinal mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, concussion, and biomechanics. He has a wide range of clinical experience including all demographics and orthopedic conditions. Joe’s strong manual therapy skills combined with a mechanical approach to treatment allow him to help his patients achieve superior outcomes.


“It’s extremely rewarding to earn a patient’s trust upon first meeting them at their initial evaluation, help them understand the cause of their injury and how to successfully treat and resolve it, and be the person they can rely on to help with future injuries not only to them, but to their friends and family as well. I have many patients that I have treated for over 10+ years, and seeing them come back to the clinic is like treating family.”


When he’s not working, Joe enjoys spending time with his wife, snowboarding, playing basketball, and exercising at the gym.
