Meet Your Director

Alyssa Dorney, PT, DPT, CSCS

MY HOBBIES: When she’s not helping patients regain their physical abilities, Alyssa enjoys going to the gym, spending time with her friends and family, traveling, hiking, and spending time at the beach.

For as long as she can recall, Alyssa Dorney has been interested in the sciences, particularly those that involve the human body like anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. Over time, as Alyssa diligently studied these topics and realized that a strong understanding of the body could be used to help people with pain and disabilities, she developed a great interest in becoming a physical therapist. The opportunity to attain a doctorate through her education, and therefore learn at the highest level about function and dysfunction of the human body, served as the final drive for her to pursue a career in physical therapy. This led Alyssa to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Biology with an emphasis in Psychology from Loyola University Maryland. She then went on to Touro College School of Health Sciences, where she earned a Doctor of Physical Therapy and graduated summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA. While studying at Touro College, Alyssa became well-versed in researching and applying the latest advances in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Twin Boro Physical Therapy was pleased to welcome Alyssa to our staff in September of 2020, when she was assigned the Clinical Director position at the Wyckoff location. Before joining Twin Boro, she worked at other outpatient clinics, where she treated patients of all ages and ailments. Throughout her career, Alyssa has completed a number of continuing education courses, with focuses on orthopedic and neuromuscular practices, including vestibular training and current concepts regarding ACL rehabilitation. Alyssa also became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) during her final year at Touro College, and she has applied ideals from this scope of practice to many aspects of her career as a physical therapist.

Alyssa’s varied clinical experience has allowed her to treat patients at all stages across the lifespan, from athletic adolescents to flourishing geriatric patients. She has frequently treated post-surgical conditions—including ACL repairs and hip and knee replacements—as well as surgical and nonsurgical disorders. Alyssa considers her therapeutic approach to be unique, as it always involves an individualized program that she designs for each patient. These programs typically include manual therapy (joint mobilizations/manipulations, Mulligan techniques, the McKenzie Method, and Functional Manual Therapy), strength training (advanced and evidence-based exercise prescriptions), and motor control (including neuromuscular re-education). She believes that the rehabilitation of each patient requires an active education, which encourages self-empowerment while preventing dependency on the provider and providing all patients an opportunity to always be involved in decisions about their care.

Alyssa also bases her management strategies around Twin Boro Physical Therapy’s One2FourTM Care Model. This unique approach accounts for the relatively low level of function a patient might experience after an injury or surgery, and then aims to take them all the way through to the peak performance required to return to their prior or preferred level of function. Alyssa sees this model as a clear means for patients to understand the state of their current condition before initiating treatment and what they can expect for a prognosis. It also helps guide the patient along their path as they aim to achieve an optimal level of function.

My physical therapist helped me heal from my injury with efficiency, professionalism and compassion! Not only am I feeling better but I feel more empowered to be able to stay well. All the staff are great! They make each visit a wonderful experience and I always love coming to pt. The new location is beautiful and so convenient, too. The scheduling and billing is very easy and I never have to worry about getting an appointment. All in all, I would definitely recommend Twin Boro!

Cathy and Alyssa have done an outstanding job helping me reduce the back pain that I have been suffering with for several months. I have been diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease primarily due to my age.The exercises that I have been given have greatly improved my condition, reduced the pain and my overall fitness has also improved.I would highly recommend this service to anyone who needs physical therapy.

I was using another physical therapy place after my neck surgery. I was seeing no results using my fingers and my hand was not improving. Once I started coming here I could see in a matter of days the improve it my hand and my fingers. in the past three weeks I have noticed a drastic improvement. I’m getting better function in use of my hand and my fingers. I would recommend twin Boro physical therapy to my friends and family. And when I go see my doctor tomorrow I am definitely going to tell him where I’m receiving my physical therapy now. And I am sure he will see the improvement. Again very caring staff. Willing to help you and work with you.

Needed physical therapy for my back, and very happy my orthopedic specialist recommended this location. The entire staff is great, and they were very flexible scheduling sessions around my work schedule. Alyssa is an outstanding DPT. She pushed to ensure I made continuous incremental improvements, listened to keep tabs on how my recovery was responding, and adjusted as we went along. She’s also a certified strength and conditioning specialist and offered a bunch of tips on how to keep my body strong as I got back into the activities I love to do. I would 100% go back if I ever need physical therapy again.

With my doctor told me that I needed therapy I checked out a few places and I ended up coming to twin borrow because it was walking distance at first impression the place looked like it needed updating but then I was evaluated by Alyssa and she was excellent. I have been coming now for just about a month and I’ve made great progress every time I come in I don’t have to wait and I am taking care of right away the personnel here is very friendly and I just look forward to coming here and I’ve gotten so much better thank you Alyssa.

I went to twin boro for several weeks because I sprained my left ankle pretty bad, the upper and lower ligament. When I first began my therapy I could hardly put any weight on my foot and the ankle was giving out. The staff at twin boro was very helpful, super friendly and extremely knowledgeable which made things very easy on me. The facility is also very clean and has all the necessary equipment.I'm happy to say that my ankle is much better now and I returned back to work last Thursday. Thank you soo much twin boro!!!

I recently visited Dr. Dorney for chronic back pain and she’s nothing short of a miracle worker. All of my pain has subsided and she’s shared with me so much of her knowledge. Dr. Dorney also gave me a bunch of exercises to do at home and my back is feeling stronger than ever. I’m back to playing my best golf yet! Thank you Dr. Dorney!!!

I have been going to Twin Boro since my shoulder surgery 12 weeks ago. My surgeon Dr Steven Silver from hospital for Special Surgery has said how much improvement I have made in that time. I had a labrum tear a bone spur cartilage cleaned out and my bicept repaired. I have been seeing PT Cathy Jobson and my shoulder has never felt better. She works my arm hard and it has paid off. I’ve had shoulder knee ankle and elbow surgery before as a former baseball player and it has never gone this good or this smooth. I owe this all to Cathy and my surgeon. I highly recommend using twin Boro of Wyckoff and asking for Cathy. You will not be disappointed.

Before going to Twin Boro, I was suffering from lower back pain and excruciating sciatica pain in my right leg, due to a herniated disc. I had tried a chiropractor and two epidural shots with very little relief. But after just a few visits with Alicia, I started seeing improvement and have been getting better each day. Alicia is very knowledgeable, professional, patient and friendly. I look forward to my visits and highly recommend her. She gave me my life back.

My experience at Twin Boro Physical Therapy in Wyckoff was wonderful. The staff was friendly, excellent to work with, and very accommodating when it came to scheduling appointments around my work schedule. Special thank you to Julie. I've had lower back issues for years and recently had bad sciatic pain. Alicia Lalla, my main therapist and Cathy Dobson helped me work through my pain and discomfort issues with coordinated back and core exercises known as the McKenzie Method for lower back pain. Alicia is very knowledgeable and certified in this method. After 12 plus sessions I feel much better and haven't had any lower back pain or discomfort. I'm even sleeping better at night, which adds to my quality of life. I would highly recommend Twin Boro in Wyckoff to anyone who is experiencing the same issues as I was.

This is my first time ever having physical therapy and I cannot say enough about how great Alicia is. I went to other places and she is the only one to get me walking from my knee surgery. She is knowledgeable, professional and truly cares about your treatment. She actually makes pt enjoyable!!! Nothing but good things to say about my experience!!

I rarely ever post reviews. I limped in to Twin Boro Physical Therapy with aching feet. Cathy, my physical therapist, had me walking normally in no time. Cathy is a consummate professional. She is knowledgeable and caring and spent a good amount of time massaging my aching feet.

I worked with Kathy for about 2 months and she was great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. I had injured my left shoulder and after 2 months I feel like my left is stronger than my right. I also have better range of motion. I have been to other physical therapists in the past for other injuries, but Kathy and TwinBoro were the best I have used.
13:38 05 Apr 19
I don’t usually write reviews, but just had to. If I could give this place 10 stars I would. This is my second time needing to go to PT for an injury and it was a no brainer that I would once again choose Twin Boro in Wyckoff. The first time I went for a foot injury where I was told by doctors that I might need surgery and I wasn’t even able to walk on it when I started. After seeing Devon for a few months, I was walking like normal and surgery was taken out of the equation. What a relief! Now I am back for an injured shoulder. This time the master PT is Cathy. She is the full package. She is a doll, extremely professional and really knows her stuff. She doesn’t just have you do exercises, but makes sure you are doing them correctly to maximize recovery and not cause further injury. When I started I couldn’t lift my arm or scratch my back and after only 8 sessions, I have significant improvement and could do both of those things. I feel like Twin Boro Wyckoff can fix any problem I present them with. The space itself is not fancy or huge, but is very cozy and comfortable and well equipped with plenty of equipment to meet your rehabilitation needs. As far as the other staff members, I can’t say enough about them too. Your first communication with Twin Boro Wyckoff starts with Julie at the front desk who makes you feel so welcomed. She too is an absolute doll and so helpful. She bends over backwards to accommodate scheduling needs, answer insurance questions, help secure additional sessions if needed, etc. I love talking to her and although she is more administrative I have noticed several other clients talking to her and having a friendship with her. I also have seen her pitching in to help the therapists when the place was very busy or short staffed. Lastly, I have to mention the PT assistants that help with the exercises, Anthony and Tom. Again, I have to use the word, “Absolute Dolls.” They are so sweet and helpful and make the exercises more enjoyable. Really, everyone that works at this place, besides really knowing their stuff, couldn’t be any nicer. The hour flies by and I never dread going. It’s almost disappointing when my sessions run out. Obviously, I hope to have no future injuries, but in the unfortunate event that I do, I know that Twin Boro Wyckoff is there for me. I couldn’t recommend them enough! Thank you so much Twin Boro for everything! You really have made a huge difference in my life.

So I never leave a google review b/c it's lame and because facebook is way easier, so I doubt anyone will look at this. But regardless I digress....Alicia is awesome, she actually knows what she's doing and communicates well, always asking me how I'm feeling each time I come in. I even rescheduled and took off from work to see her before I left for vacation. And I never do that....try to save my sick time from work, ya know? If you're thinking of getting PT, get it here with're welcome

When choosing a PT facility it is important to have the office staff handle your insurance paperwork correctly and great therapists. Twin Boro has both. Julie in the office has been fantastic and my therapist Alicia has been great. She consistently checks with my doctors on my progress. I highly recommend twin Boro.

I have been to the Wyckoff location after 2 different surgeries. Both times Alicia and the staff made PT fun. They always had us laughing but also getting my exercises done. I recommend them any time someone needs PT. The people at the Fairlawn location do a great job also. I've had to use their services for 2 different problems as well.

After an elbow injury and subsequent frozen shoulder, Alicia has been able to help me make consistent progress. Nice, friendly staff makes a rather unpleasant process so much better. Would definitely recommend!

Alicia was my PT and her knowledge of the body, injury, healing and manipulation helped me get back to 100% after a broken ankle. What makes this PT location stand out is not the equipment or the exercises, every PT place has that, but the environment. Choose a location with great people! This staff cares, is attentive and is downright enjoyable. PT is hard work, but with this crew I kept coming back instead of giving up and I got the results! Back to running, volleyball, the gym, etc. Well done Twin Boro Wyckoff!

I went to Twinboro Physical Therapy for a high ankle sprain after falling downstairs. I saw Devon Davis, who was great with explaining about my injury and what I needed to do to improve my pain and instability in my ankle. The staff at Twinboro was great and so friendly, loved working with all of them. I would recommend Twinboro to anyone in my family and friends to help them get back to whatever activity they wanted. Twinboro Wyckoff became like a family to me and miss them now that I have finished PT. Thanks for getting me back to doing my workouts!
