connor fay | SENIOR SPORTS PHYSICAL THERAPIST

 

Connor Fay PT, DPT was exposed to the world of physical therapy at a young age and has always had a passion for sports and fitness. As a three-sport varsity athlete, he sustained multiple sports-related injuries with potentially debilitating long term implications. Through physical therapy, he was able to make a full recovery from those serious injuries. It was that positive experience as a patient, as well as seeing the incredible healing power of the human body, that led him on his path to eventually becoming a physical therapist.

Connor attended Ithaca College where he received both a B.S. in Clinical Health Studies, and subsequently a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT). During his final year of graduate school, he spearheaded a team of fellow PT students.  They developed a safe, effective pitching program to prevent elbow injuries in youth pitchers based off data found in a bio-mechanical analysis.

Prior to joining PHLEX Connor was a physical therapist at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco NY. There, he worked in both the acute-based hospital setting, as well as the orthopedic setting at the hospital’s satellite ambulatory care center. He has extensive experience in the acute management of post-operative conditions. Connor is an active member of the American Physical Therapy Association, and in his spare time enjoys basketball, soccer, and playing the piano.
