Biography

PT, MPT, DPT 

Dr. Kevin Schnitzer is one of the senior therapists at BREAKTHRU and has been serving as the Director of Clinical Education. He had managed our Moorestown office for three years and did an excellent job developing the facility and providing the highest quality physical therapy care. Kevin has management responsibilities, but continues to maintain a full caseload in order to best serve our patients.

Dr. Kevin Schnitzer earned his Bachelor’s in Science in Exercise Science from Rutgers University, his master’s degree in physical therapy from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Temple University. He also received his personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and spent time working as a personal trainer. His final internship was here at BREAKTHRU where he made a name for himself early, getting excellent results on complicated patients. Kevin has a strong focus  on manual therapy and specialty techniques including ART, SFMA, and Kinesiotaping. With the quality of care he provides, his dedication to patient satisfaction, and his love for orthopaedic, sports physical therapy, and paediatrics, he is an excellent asset here at BREAKTHRU. He has developed a specific interest and specialty in pediatric and adolescent orthopedics and sports medicine.

Kevin takes a holistic approach to physical therapy and desires to help patients make lifestyle changes as needed to aid in healing and prevent recurrence of problems. He chooses to focus on the overall health of the patient, promoting independent exercise and fitness routines. He often sees patients that have failed therapy at other practices and enjoys the challenge of trying to get them better.  His experience with advanced exercise physiology, biomechanics, and anatomy help him design the personalized therapeutic and fitness programs for his patients.

Kevin places a high value on education with a strong desire to better his care through continuing education and staying current on the latest research. He recognizes the importance of educating all parties involved in patient care including the patient, their family, doctors, and other therapists. He has participated in several educational lectures including back pain prevention, ACL injury prevention, core strengthening for runners, and treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. He has been serving as an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey where he assists in teaching physical therapy students musculoskeletal and orthopaedic physical therapy.

Kevin participated in track and field in high school and enjoys martial arts. He received his black belt in jujitsu and was a national freestyle champion in 2001. Kevin and his beautiful wife Heather have two sons Samuel and Benjamin and are currently living in Mt. Laurel.
