Dr. Bianca Ferrante
Dr. Ferrante earned a Bachelor of Science Degree and went on to earn a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Hartford in 2013. Once graduated, she proceeded to work in almost every physical therapy setting, treating patients with varying orthopedic diagnoses such as hip and knee replacements, ACL repairs, spinal fusions, osteoarthritis, and other musculoskeletal disorders. She has also treated many patients with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, strokes, Multiple Sclerosis, and other gait dysfunctions and balance disorders. These opportunities provided invaluable experiences and guided her through her path to a better understanding of the body and its interconnected complexities. Dr. Ferrante’s various experiences in the different physical therapy settings allowed her to see firsthand how every muscle, tendon, bone, etc is connected in the body. She quickly witnessed how pain can stem from another area in the body, rather than the actual location experiencing the pain. For example, knee or foot pain can come from the hip, and a headache can come from misalignment in the pelvis.
From here Dr. Ferrante found her passion for treating patients with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. Dr. Ferrante has always been increasingly interested by “alternative therapies” such as nutrition, women’s health, Cupping Therapy, Myofascial Release, Dry Needling, and Reiki. She incorporates these “alternative” treatments into her physical therapy practice, along with patient specific manual techniques, exercises, and education to allow patients to return to their highest quality of life.
Dr. Ferrante recently relocated to North Carolina from Delaware. Outside of physical therapy she enjoys yoga, pilates, reading, traveling, trying new restaurants, spending time with family and friends, and watching an unhealthy amount of television. Dr. Ferrante has spent time assisting in pelvic floor courses through Herman & Wallace and hopes to continue, with progressing to teaching in the future. She believes in incorporating a unique, individualized approach while treating each patient.
