Dr. Jennifer Scuncio DPT
Dr. Jennifer Scuncio has worked with Performance Physical Therapy since 2016 as a physical therapist and clinic director at our North Providence location. After earning her BS in Kinesiology from URI, she went on to PT school there, earning her doctorate in 2011. She has also earned a certification in dry needling and plans on seeking board-certification as an orthopedic clinical specialist.
She has expertise in treating general and post-surgical orthopedic conditions. She is also comfortable with pediatric patients, working often in a local school district to treat children with special needs. She took her expertise abroad when she had the chance to spend two weeks volunteering in a hospital in India.
When she’s not in the clinic you can find her exploring new restaurants, walking or hiking with her dog, cheering on the Patriots, or spending time with family and friends.
She advises patients to try to be as active as possible, to be in charge of your own body and to be your own best advocate. “Listen to your body,” she says.
