Yaakov Gottlieb, PT
Yaakov Gottlieb, PT
AposTherapist

Upon graduating with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from The City University of New York, Staten Island, Yaakov began his career in private practice in the New York area. The practice specialized in treating patients with chronic pain and sports rehabilitation, where it held monthly support groups for those suffering from chronic pain.

He subsequently worked as a traveling Physical Therapist in The San Francisco Bay area, exploring new communities and getting to know patients from a wide variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. His clientele included a number of underprivileged, low-income and incarcerated patients.

After returning to his original home in New York, while continuing to work as a Physical Therapist, Yaakov had the opportunity to pursue my lifelong love of teaching as an adjunct professor of General Biology, and Anatomy & Physiology. Yaakov has always had a fascination with Biomechanics; so naturally, when he became aware of AposTherapy, he was immediately attracted to the company.

Outside of AposTherapy, Yaakov tries to spend as much time as possible amidst the great outdoors. He enjoys hiking and camping and is an avid swimmer.
