Elina Skripochnik PT, DPT is a Physical Therapist specializing in Women’s Health and Pediatrics. A New York City resident, Elina received her Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from New York University.
As a child, I participated in karate, tennis, swimming, and dance classes; I eventually became a ballroom dancer and competed professionally for several years. Being physically active was always encouraged and prioritized in my family.
I pursued a career in Physical Therapy because I had an affinity for connecting with people, and I wanted a career that would allow me to stay active while assisting others in prioritizing safe and appropriate movement. During my studies in the doctoral program at New York University, I knew I wanted to specialize in pediatrics. I also found myself drawn to Women’s Health after I had presented several in-services regarding pregnancy and how to safely stay active during the prenatal and postpartum period. 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 and women’s health in order to better my understanding, as well as my ability to help mothers and children.
I provide services for women who wish to lead a healthy and active lifestyle before, during, and after pregnancy. My goal is to educate women on the benefits of being active during pregnancy, and help them through safe and easy methods that can be done in group settings, at home, or with my private help.
I provide 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 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.
