In order to produce optimal patient outcomes, Elliott Caponetti believes in an emphasis on manual therapy, while providing an individualized, goal-oriented treatment approach. It revolves on implementing pain education with patients, while incorporating proven manual therapy methods.
His approach has been successful. And when combined with Elliott’s empathic and affable nature, he constructs a strong connection with his patients during the entire rehabilitation process.
Elliott earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Temple University. While studying in Philadelphia, he developed an interest in orthopedics, particularly individuals suffering with chronic pain. Prior to Temple, Elliott graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition Foods & Exercise.
Through his career, Elliott has successfully implemented principles of cognitive functional therapy in populations suffering with chronic pain, which led him to research and present a Critically Appraised Topic (CAT) examining the effects of graded motor imagery on patients suffering from complex regional pain syndrome. He would go on to receive an Evidence-Based Practice Presentation Award.
Coordinating with physicians and other therapists, Elliott has provided individualized care while treating a wide range of orthopedic impairments, ranging from acute injuries in sedentary populations to chronic injuries in athletic populations.
Elliott is an avid Eagles fan and he enjoys playing racquetball, and tennis. He also enjoys traveling with friends and family during his leisure.
