Elina Skripochnik PT, DPT is a Physical Therapist specializing in Pediatrics. A New York City resident, Elina received her Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from New York University.

I pursued a career in Physical Therapy because I have an affinity for connecting with people, and I wanted a career that would allow me to make a positive impact in peoples’ lives. During my studies in the doctoral program at New York University, I knew I wanted to specialize in pediatrics because of my love for children. After I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from NYU, I worked in several pediatric settings such as Preschools, Early Intervention, and Outpatient care. Once I completed my doctoral training, I took many continuing education courses in pediatrics in order to better my understanding, as well as my ability to help children and their families.

I provide physical therapy services for the pediatric population, ranging from newborn to school age children. A child does not necessarily need to have a physical or developmental delay in order to benefit from exercise and targeted motor activities. I help parents understand important milestones and how to facilitate their child in reaching those milestones. My goal is to help parents connect with their children through activities that are informative, innovative, and fun.

I offer Playgroups for children of all abilities; playgroups allow children to participate in developmentally appropriate activities that blend gross motor play with sensory exploration. Even if a child does not need formal physical therapy, playgroups are a wonderful way to get your child moving, practicing skills they need for gross motor development, and expose them to different sensory activities.
