Meet Our Director
Ricardo Pacheco, PT, DPT
Ricardo Pacheco graduated from Kean University, receiving his B.S. in Biology with a minor in English and Health Education. He went on to pursue his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Clarkson University. During high school, he played soccer and became injured. Ricardo tore his meniscus, which required surgery and physical therapy. This exposure to the field pushed him to pursue his doctorate in PT.
Ricardo joined Twin Boro Physical Therapy in 2021 as the Clinical Director of our Newark clinic. He specializes in treating rotator cuff injuries, low back pain, neck pain, ankle sprains, ACL tears, meniscus tears, hip pathology, joint replacements, and post-surgical intervention. Ricardo has worked with D1 college athletes, MLB pitchers, and players in the MLS and NFL.
He completed several CE courses on cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spinal manipulation. Ricardo attended an M1 training to become certified in Graston Technique, an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization technique. He is also certified in Rock Tape, an evidenced-based approach to taping for pain, enhancing fluid dynamics, posture, nerve entrapment, and scars.
When treating patients, Ricardo implements Twin Boro’s One2Four™ Care Model to determine and analyze patients current functional level, past functional level, and establish the right plan of care to help them succeed. He marks patients progress during their plan of care and makes adjustments as needed to meet every patient goal.
