Abby DeBlois, PT, DPT, CSCS
Personal Trainer

Abby grew up in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Her interest in physical therapy began in high school while experiencing her own injuries and watching the benefits physical therapy would also have on her siblings’ sports-related injuries. Abby graduated from The University of Miami with a Bachelors of Science in Health Science. Abby continued to play sports throughout her college career, playing on the Connecticut College Women’s Lacrosse Team her freshman year, and on the club lacrosse team at the University of Miami.

Professional Experience and Education

Abby went on to pursue her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at New York University. She gained experience through her clinical rotations and master clinician observations working with patients of all ages with orthopedics and musculoskeletal, neurologic, wound and vestibular related conditions. While completing her Doctorate, Abby became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Abby feels it is especially beneficial to use her added exercise background with her patients. Additionally, Abby has taught group fitness classes at Manic Training- Rhode Island from 2014-2018. Abby believes in treating her patients as a whole, focusing on the body’s connections rather than treating an injury in isolation. Abby focuses on exercise as a mechanism to treat her patients, and believes in tailoring a unique exercise program to each of her patients’ individual needs with the hopes of promoting an active, healthy lifestyle for every individual. Abby has a particular interest in treating the hip as well as patients for post-surgical rehabilitation.
