Patti Curci realized she wanted to become a physical therapist in high school. She developed a condition in her ankle called Osteochondritis Dissecans where she underwent 2 ankle surgeries, followed by physical therapy. She loved watching how the therapist worked with her to enable her return to her favorite sports including, swimming and tennis, and knew then, that she wanted this as her future career.
Patti was raised in West Chester PA, and went on to swim for the University of Scranton where she graduated with a degree in Physical therapy. She furthered her education at DeSales University and earned her MBA degree. She joined Mishock Physical Therapy in October of 2010.
She has focused the majority of her continuing education over the past 4 years on a variety of topics including training in Vestibular rehabilitation as well as classes at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for advanced understanding on concussion protocols and ImPACT testing. Her goal is to further develop this knowledge and pursue certification in vestibular therapy.
Her treatment philosophy is to personally connect with her patients in a friendly and positive setting. She likes to empower them with information to get the best outcomes in the clinic as well as develop tools so they can manage at home after completing their course of treatment with physical therapy.
She lives in Schwenksville with her husband, Joe, and 3 children: Drew, Brad, and Natalie. All kids attend school in the Perkiomen Valley School District. When she’s not working, she can be found volunteering at school, being a cheerleader on the sidelines at any of her kid’s sports or music activities, working out at a class at the Spring Valley YMCA, or walking her new puppy on the Perkiomen Trail.
