Thomas was born and raised in the blue collar town of Garfield, NJ. Growing up with a younger brother, they played every sport in basements, backyards and ball fields in town. Once he got to high school, Thomas made the varsity team in soccer, basketball, as well as track and field. While receiving physical therapy following a right knee injury, Thomas found his interest in the human body, injury recovery, and the PT part of health care leading him to the field of physical therapy. In his senior year at Garfield High School, Thomas had an opportunity one semester to observe PTs in a professional setting at a physical therapy clinic one day per week. It was at this facility that made his decision that physical therapy was the career he was going pursue. Thomas then went to Seton Hall University and studied biology with a pre-graduate focus in physical therapy. It was in his senior year that Thomas started at University of Medicine and Dentistry, now part of Rutgers University. He is a proud member of the first class in New Jersey to graduate with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy. One year out of school, Thomas married his wife, Maggie, who holds a Psychology/Masters in Counseling degree, so together they have the understanding of the human body nearly covered. Three kids later, they enjoy being a part of travel soccer, choir and band performances, being with family and participating in their childhood church community now as a family.

Allison developed an enthusiasm for physical therapy as a teenager, working through her recovery from several soccer-related knee injuries. The summer entering her freshman year of high school, she had ACL reconstructive surgery, her first of seven knee surgeries. During her recovery, she became enamored with the broad range of knowledge, enthusiasm, and team spirit of her physical therapists. Allison’s passion for physical therapy grew throughout high school and college. She studied at the University of Michigan’s School of Kinesiology and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Movement Science. While at U of M, Allison’s love for college football (GO BLUE!) and devotion to physical therapy flourished. She assisted in research and wrote an insightful senior thesis studying the “Effects of Backpacks on Walking Biomechanics.” Allison attended graduate school at New York University, earning her Doctorate of Physical Therapy, while finding her niche in outpatient orthopedics and sports. While Allison enjoys treating patients of all ages and diagnoses, her experiences as a patient, beginning at age 14, helped shape her interest in treating female athletes (pre, post, and non-operative). Using her own experiences, she warmly relates to each patient, regardless of injury or age. Allison revels in sports, the outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. Since her recovery from her most recent knee surgery, Allison practices yoga daily to help maintain her strength and mobility. She and her husband enjoy hiking and skiing, spending their free time looking for new outdoor places to explore. When not participating in sports, Allison enjoys watching soccer and football with her husband, cheering on Michigan football on Saturdays and the Jets on Sundays.
