Meet Your Director

Ricardo Pacheco, PT, DPT

MY HOBBIES: Watching sports, going to concerts and shows, and spending time with family and friends

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.

I had the pleasure of not only having Mr. Anthony Cabrera as my primary physical therapist over at Twin Boro Physical Therapy, but the very privilege of knowing him as a person.He is very engaging, amiable, and humble. With his expertise in this field, my recovery from shoulder surgery felt expedited with his one on one interactions and tips recommended that I would follow at home.I highly recommend his services for anyone in need of a physical therapist. He is again very knowledgeable, respectable, and sagacious beyond his years.And I also want to express my gratitude and a deep appreciation for the entire staffing at Twin Boro. They have been very pleasant, and a very joyful experience.

I was treated wonderfully at Twin Boro Newark! I was treated for a sprained ankle and whiplash and I have seen significant improvement in the time that I’ve been here. I worked with both Ricky and Anthony. They were both knowledgeable, patient and kind. They were always on time. I also greatly appreciate all of the women at the front desk who helped me. Special shout-out to Stephanie and Catherine!For newcomers my only suggestion is arrive a few minutes early. Parking can get competitive especially after 10am!Hopefully I’ll never have another injury but if I do I will be back at Twin Boro!

I’m very grateful for the team over at twin boro. I suffered a work injury and didn’t know how long it would be to feel normal again. Thanks to the staff and physical therapist there, I was able to recover and go back to work like nothing ever happened. Everyday was a fun experience I learned new exercises and was well taken care of. I was lucky to work with each therapist there and can say everyone works a little different but all of them are professionals and have helped me tremendously throughout my journey. I went in barely able to walk, by the time it was over I was able to run again. I highly recommend this place, and thanks a lot to the family over at Twin Boro.

Going here right now working with Eric, he knew exactly what was wrong right away and immediately had me on a great plan to fix my pelvis! I am so glad I ended up coming here and got the help I needed, would definitely recommend to anyone that is in pain and wants to feel normal again! My only regret is that I did not come sooner as the pain is almost all gone for me after being In pain for over a year.

Anyone knows that physical therapy after sir6is a painful ordeal. I had rotator cuff and bone spurs shaved in my shoulder. The staff made me feel comfortable, they listed to all of me concerns and gave great advice as to what to do beyond therapy to improve my functionality. Friendly and professional service allowed for a pleasant experience in spite of the pain.

Ok so it's my second time around with Twin Boro, 2 years ago I was with them for 3 months..My left knee improved drastically , as i felt like surgery was unnecessary.Twin Boro did an outstanding job , 2 years later now in 2022 of Febryary a good surgeon fixed the 4 tares I had in my knee.Ah Hah, right backvto Twin Boro which is my only choice for having fun and getting 100 percent for my new surgically repaired knee....Today is my last day, regretfully.because these guys are also my friends, that's why I came back.No bones about it there care is 100 percent effective, try them for yourself.Pastor Max A Johnson.

I came to Twin Boro on Chestnut Street in Newark a few months ago and my physical therapist was Margie Lora.Margie is an excellent Doctor of Physical Therapy, an expert in all aspects of physical therapy and how the body works.I came to Margie with pain and stiffness in both shoulders and in just a few visits, she taught me the proper stretching and resistance exercises and now I have no pain or stiffness at all. It is evident that she has a genuine interest in and is passionate about helping and improving the quality of life for her patients.I think Margie is awesome and I would recommend her to anyone in need of physical therapy.
