Dr. Emma Taylor, of Tenafly, NJ, earned her doctorate in Physical Therapy from Northwestern University in 2018, during which time she also became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. She holds a dual Bachelor of Science degree in Health: Science, Society & Policy and Psychology from Brandeis University, where she was a four-year member of the Varsity Women’s Soccer team. At Brandeis, she was recognized by the University Athletic Association four times for her outstanding academic record and contributions to her team.
A lifelong athlete, Emma is a devotee of a wide variety of sports, both as participant and spectator. She strives to promote health through movement: as a physical therapist by applying the most current evidence-based practice to her patient care, and as a volunteer, by raising funds and helping athletes of all abilities achieve their potential. In 2015, Emma ran the Chicago marathon to benefit the Les Turner ALS foundation and in 2017 guided a wheelchair athlete from the Achilles International organization through the New York City marathon. Her most recent personal athletic accomplishment is the completion of two 70.3 Ironman triathlons.
Dr. Taylor’s clinical interests include lower extremity injuries, the overhead athlete, and athletes with post-concussive syndrome. She is a member of the Academy of Orthopedic Physical Therapy and the Sports Physical Therapy Section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as well as the Massachusetts chapter of the APTA.
