Dr. Ryan Delong’s motivation to study physical therapy stemmed from a passion for science, anatomy, and exercise. While he was working at Mishock Physical Therapy as an exercise physiologist, he received clarity that his previous experience and education all pointed towards physical therapy.
He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from Penn State University, a Master’s of Science in exercise physiology from West Chester University, and his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Neumann University. After earning his Master’s degree Ryan began working at Mishock Physical Therapy’s Skippack clinic as an exercise physiologist. While working full time in the Skippack clinic Ryan took the necessary next steps and to attain his Doctorate so he could practice physical therapy.
Ryan’s particular interests include orthopedic shoulder rehabilitation, post-operative knee rehabilitation, posture and its influences on neck and shoulder pain. His favorite part of working with patients is empowering them with knowledge so they better understand their diagnosis, and helping them feel and move better. He is currently working towards earning his COMT (certified orthopedic manual therapist) designation through Maitland physical therapy.
Ryan grew up in Barto, PA, went to Boyertown high school and currently lives in Boyertown. Outside of work Ryan enjoys hunting, being outdoors, and spending time with his wife Marisa, their daughter Paige, and their Boston Terrier Maggie.
