Abigail Ellsworth PT, DPT, FMT, NDS, CSCS, CPS
Abigail graduated Magna Cum Laud from Slippery Rock University with her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree, and an interest in neuromuscular development and motor patterns. She is a certified Pilates instructor for the past 13 years with her most recent certification from Polestar Pilates. Polestar is a scientific research based Pilates integrated rehabilitation system combining classical Pilates with evidence based neurodynamics. She has studied with the Institute of Physical Art (IPA) to focus on Functional Manual Therapy as an integrated treatment system coupling mechanical treatment of the joints, soft tissues, visceral and neurovascular systems with manual neuromuscular facilitation to enhance optimum motor control and human function. Combining her IPA education with Polestar and classical Pilates training she has developed a philosophy of creating life-changing movement experiences by fusing Pilates, Physical Therapy and mind-body energy systems together to better target efficient dynamic motion. Abigail has published several research articles, clinical assessments as well as anatomical books (Anatomy of Pilates, Anatomy of Yoga, Massage Anatomy and Core Training Anatomy) over the past 14 years. She has lectured for the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), New York State Reflexology Association (NYSRA), Westchester Medical Center (WMC), and Sport section of the American Physical Therapy Association (SPTA) and teaches Anatomy and Physiology for Yoga certifications. She is the owner of the Pilates, Therapy and Wellness Center in Scarsdale. Being an owner of PT&W is not only fun but invigorating. Managing the daily operations of PT&W can be demanding, however my roll not only as an administrator, but as a Physical Therapist and a Pilates instructor makes my job enjoyable! The Staff strives to create and maintain a philosophy based on the “entire person”. Rather than just relieving pain, our goal is to treat the whole person, allowing them to achieve the lifestyle they enjoy. This is a very inspiring and rewarding job!
