Leah Valvo, MS, PT, OCS
Leah is a 1999 graduate of Ithaca College, Ithaca, New York where she received her Bachelors of Science, Minor in Psychology and Masters in Physical Therapy. She obtained her Clinical Specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy in 2020. During the last twenty plus years of practice, Leah has had valuable experiences in a variety of settings. She started in outpatient therapy the first year. Then she moved to long term home health and medical day programs for adults for two years. These positions included mostly geriatric and neurologic populations with multiple sclerosis, stroke, joint replacements, Parkinsons, Alzheimers, and others diagnoses. Leah moved on to work for Unity Health System (now Rochester Regional Health) in the acute care setting at Unity Hospital. For over 12 years she learned how to take care of patients on all units/floors and eventually became a senior therapist in the department. Volunteers and student physical therapists were also under her supervision. Coming full circle, Leah returned to outpatient physical therapy at two different clinics before joining the team at Kulp Physical Therapy in 2019. Training and coursework includes basic and advanced Vestibular Rehabilitation, Mulligans Concept Upper and Lower Quadrants, Functional Movement Systems, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, Sahrmann’s Movement Impairment Syndromes, Advanced Pain Science Applications, and most importantly Manual Trigger Point Therapy Levels 1 and 2. As a member of Kulp Physical Therapy, Leah is excited to help patients learn how to help themselves heal and manage their conditions. Educating the patient is a priority in this clinic and is also one that she has embodied throughout her career. Having been a patient herself in this clinic before working here, Leah hopes to help her patients get back to living better.
Hannah Miller PT, DPT, Cert.VRS
Hannah obtained her doctorate in Physical Therapy from Daemen College in 2021. Hannah received diverse clinical exposure in the areas of pediatrics, inpatient trauma, pelvic health, and vestibular rehabilitation. She spent the first two years of her career working in a rural outpatient clinic treating individuals across the lifespan. She went on to obtain her Concussion Management Specialist certification, in addition to obtaining her formal certification in vestibular rehabilitation from the American Musculoskeletal Institute. She hopes to continue her education in order to provide patients with the most competent and comprehensive care possible. Throughout her time at Daemen, Hannah competed as a Division 2 track and field athlete. In her free time, she enjoys working out, traveling, playing the piano, and spending quality time with her family. Hannah is a firm believer that motion is lotion. Movement looks different for everyone, and Hannah looks forward to helping each patient get back to their optimal state of movement.
