About Daniel Neissany, PT, DPT

Daniel Neissany, PT, DPT, is a physical therapist and the Clinical Director at NJ Spine and Wellness in Matawan, New Jersey. He believes that pain does not occur out of the clear blue sky – there has to be a causative factor for the pain we feel.

Dr. Neissany was born and raised in Bayonne, New Jersey, and currently resides in Woodbridge, New Jersey. He graduated from William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey, with a degree in biology and then went on to earn his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark in 2007.

Dr. Neissany utilizes the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) as part of the process of healing a patient. The SFMA is a physical screening process that enables Dr. Neissany to not only figure out what is causing a patient pain but also allows him to accurately predict any future pain or injury to other body parts. The SFMA also allows Dr. Neissany to recognize each patient’s deficiencies and how to individually tailor each person’s physical therapy program. 

While an exercise program that motivates the patients is used in physical therapy, Dr. Neissany is also a strong believer in excellent manual therapy. He utilizes several different types of hands-on therapy that include the Maitland technique, Mulligan technique, and myofascial release. Dr. Neissany is currently working towards his certification in orthopedic manual therapy.

In his spare time, Dr. Neissany likes to run, cycle, and lift weights in order to stay in shape for duathlons and Tough Mudders. Dr. Neissany loves spending time outside doing activities such as hiking, skiing, or rock climbing. In addition, Dr. Neissany enjoys hanging out with family and friends, going to concerts, or attending a sporting event.
