Dr. Duane Grell received his Bachelor of Arts from Colgate University, and received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Touro College, in New York City. Duane’s treatment approach is centered around driver assessment and movement analysis, addressing any underlying movement dysfunctions or arthrokinematic issues that may be causing the musculoskeletal dysfunction. Duane is currently pursuing his Fellowship in Manual Physical Therapy, as a way of continuously advancing his clinical skillset. When working with clients with neurological impairments, Duane follows an ICF (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health) based approach, identifying and addressing the specific body function or movement that is causing the activity and participation limitations.

Duane has a passion for teaching and recognizes the importance of promoting skilled physical therapy throughout the profession. He is a faculty member with the Physical Therapy Department at Dominican College, lecturing in three courses: Neuromuscular Assessment and Treatment, Motor Learning, and Advanced Clinical Reasoning. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Touro College lecturing in Neuromuscular System Evaluation and Management, and Clinical Neuroscience.

In his free time, Duane plays rugby with the Old Blue Rugby Club, reads too many fantasy books, and is an avid skateboarder. He believes emotional and cognitive health is as important to healing as is musculoskeletal well-being. When working with his clients, his goal is to find a balance between all three realms, emotional, cognitive and musculoskeletal, and develop an individualized treatment regimen, specific to the patient’s overall goals and well-being.
