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.

Miss Margaret Senn and crew's knowledge and experience is amazing. I think she wrote the book on hand therapy. I must give special mention to her assistant Samantha as she played a big role in my therapy. My hand is on the mend and I am very grateful to Margaret, Samantha and the rest of the staff from the front desk in. Thanks again

I am undergoing therapy with PT Lady who does her work with a lot of professionalism and friendliness. I am very grateful that you are helping me in my recovery.
Today I have completed all my PT sessions for my shoulder and knee.I am immensely grateful to my PT Dr Erick for all the PT hours that I have received under his care. All PT doctors at this location give their best to assist and are very professional. They are very much appreciated for all the care they provide to their patients. The administration and PT assistants do an amazing job and are always available to help in any situation. I highly recommend Twin Boro. Thank you, Team Twin Boro Newark for all you do and for a great experience in helping me out to get well. 👍👍

Twin Boro is the best when it comes physical therapy. During my time there I received the best care possible. My Therapist was Ricky. He does an amazing job and really cares about his patients. He deserves a raise for his hard work and dedication. I highly recommend Twin Boro, the entire staff is amazing and they go above and beyond to get you back to 100%.
Luka Opacic Rodrigiues
The experience here was seriously great. I had Ricky as my PT, and he helped me tremendously on improving my ankle. He and all the staff were extremely friendly and caring with all the patients, including myself. Seriously— if anybody is looking for a place to go, don’t hesitate about trying Twin Boro out.
Kathy Camarata
Recently I saw an orthopedic surgeon who suggested I have surgery for the pain I was encountering walking. He said I could try physical therapy which I did at Twin Boro physical therapy and I am amazed at how much better and stronger I feel after Ricardo showed me how to strengthen the muscles on various machines and exercises they have.I hope to continue to strengthen muscles and to be able to continuebecause I am pain free for the first time in a long time plus the surgeon said there is no need for surgery. I look forward to continuing the physical therapy at Tri Boro which has greatly eliminated the pain and enabled me more freedom. Thank you

I have made great progress 4 months post- shoulder surgery for my physical therapy needs thanks to Anthony Cabrera. He has been thorough and attentive to rebuilding my strength with a proper physical therapy regime. He is friendly, professional and a good asset to Twin Boro. Him and the staff have made me feel welcome. Highly recommended.

Adriana Freitas
I began my post-operative physical therapy less than three months ago, and have since recovered almost completely to my full functionality pre-injury. My amazing PT, Dr. Erick Torres, has changed my life by motivating me every single session, three times a week with his complete and undivided attention to my recovery. My treatment has been extremely personalized and appropriately challenging, in aims to reach all of my personal goals (which I already have, way ahead of time). After a long day of work, I still consistently look forward to attending my PT due to the outstanding treatment I receive at TwinBoro Physical Therapy. Also worth mentioning, every single staff member I have had the pleasure of interacting with has been extremely welcoming and supportive of my recovery. The staff has been incredibly flexible with accommodating my sometimes unpredictable work schedule and providing me thorough and attentive care past closing hours (when necessary). I would wholeheartedly recommend TwinBoro, namely Dr. Torres, to anyone with the opportunity to be treated by them!
Edson Junior
Amazing crew!!! Professional and appropriate treatment for my recovery. I hardly stepped on the ground after my surgery and today in my last session I was able to run without any problems.
Ammar KB
The convenience of this location perfectly accommodated my busy work schedule, allowing me to seamlessly fit my therapy sessions into my day. I had the pleasure of working with Anthony Cabrera, my highly knowledgeable physical therapist. Anthony took the time to understand my unique needs as an individual and tailored my sessions accordingly. I sincerely appreciate his hard work, as he continuously challenges me and adjusts my exercises to ensure progress and effectiveness. Thank you, Anthony, for your dedication and for consistently going above and beyond to support my therapy journey.
Fortune Nwamara
I had a great experience here at Twin Boro. My occupational therapist was “Margaret” and she helped me with the recovery from a joint dislocation in my finger. She is knowledgeable, engaging and very patient. She was able to plan my sessions to accommodate my busy school and work schedule. She always changed up exercises to figure out what worked best for me. With her amazing expertise, she was able to create a splint for my finger to reach maximum improvement and I am thankful for that. I highly recommend her service for anyone in need for an occupational therapist.

Luis Chacon
Buen equipo administrativo, mi terapista Margaret junto a sus colaboradores Lady, Cristian y Samantha, hicieron un buen trabajo debido al corte y reparación del tendón extensor de mi dedo. Estoy muy agradecido.
Greg Gugliucci
I came here in September of 2022 after a serious work injury - I severed mostly all tendons and nerves in my right hand. I was pretty convinced that I wouldn't have any use of my hand anymore, but thankfully I was sent here for my OT. Margaret has been amazing as a therapist, the improvements I've made impress even the surgeon. She is great at what she does and it shows. I don't want to forget about the amazing staff in office, from management to the girls at the front desk (like Stephanie) they have all played a major role in making this process as painless as possible from dealing with the insurance and dealing with the surgeon. I again, cannot begin to thank them enough for making this process as easy and painless as possible.
