Dr. Adriana Nocera, PT, DPT
Dr. Adriana Nocera graduated from American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2015 and with a Bachelors of Arts in Biology from Providence College in 2011. She provides quality patient care through treatment with evidence-based manual therapy techniques. She ensures her patients have the best possible results by treating the root of their dysfunction by customizing treatments to their individual needs and lifestyles. One of her main goals is that her patients continue to do the activities they love in order for them to live their lives to the fullest.
Dr. Nocera believes that the quality of our movement comes from our foundation. Her focus is on the assessment of the alignment of the skeletal system and finding the root of the dysfunction within the musculature. By building stability in the foundation of our bodies we will create movement patterns that are more functional and decrease stress and strain on the musculoskeletal system.
