    InstructorRobert Ruffalo, PT, DC, CCSP, TPI CGFI-MP3
    About the InstructorRobert Ruffalo, PT, DC, CCSP, is Founder and President of CESI Continuing Education Seminars Incorporated, and Owner/Director of A T.E.A.M. Approach Physical Therapy Center in Bloomfield, NJ, which he established in 1990. Dr. Ruffalo is a physical therapist (PT), doctor of chiropractic (DC), certified chiropractic sports physician (CCSP), and is also a certified golf fitness instructor/medical professional, Level 3 by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI CGFI-MP3), and a TPI Junior Level 2 Coach (JR2). At A T.E.A.M. Approach Physical Therapy Center, he brings together his diverse expertise, vast experience, and personal interests to deliver a unique multi-disciplinary health care practice. Dr. Ruffalo specializes in manual therapy of the cervical spine and extremities and is trained in a variety of treatment approaches and techniques. In addition to his work as a physical therapist and chiropractor (one of only few dual licensed practitioners in NJ), Dr. Ruffalo has a passion for educating his peers by providing continuing education courses to physical therapists, chiropractors, physical therapy assistants, athletic trainers and insurance industry professionals. Many of the seminars are based on the advanced work of two medical pioneers: the late Dr. John Mennell, an orthopedist and founder of the joint dysfunction model for diagnosis and treatment, and the late Dr. Janet Travell, who founded the trigger point (myofascial pain) model of diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Ruffalo was fortunate to have lectured and taught with these practitioners and researchers.
