Cassandra N. Murphy, PT, C/NDT
Cass is a licensed physical therapist who graduated from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut in January of 2000. Since her graduation, she has worked in four different pediatric settings. Initially she worked in a school system in Stamford, CT for four years servicing children ages 3-21 with a variety of special needs. In 2004, she began working at Blythedale Children’s Hospital in Valhalla NY; this hospital provides pediatric rehabilitation services to children of all ages including an in house NICU, a birth to three program, a school program, an aquatic therapy, equipment clinic and rehabilitation of children s/p acute illnesses/surgeries.
In 2007, she started her own family and decided not to commute to work. In September 2007, she started working at Main Street Rehabilitation in Danbury, Connecticut (outpatient pediatric Physical Therapy for Danbury Hospital). This establishment services children ages 0-18 years old with varying diagnoses in an outpatient setting. At this facility, Cass ran an aquatic therapy program servicing 12-15 children per week. Over the past 16 years she has attended a variety of continuing education programs to better her skills and allow for improved care for all of her patients.
In 2011, Cass became NDT (Neuro-developmental treatment) Certified after completing an 8-week, yearlong certification program in New York. Not only is she certified in NDT but also has completed her K1-4 kinesiotaping education this past year. She has been educated on orthotic and equipment fitting/assessment/evaluation during a variety of continuing education courses as well. Due to her vast pediatric work history, she has been able to learn from children with numerous diagnoses and concerns. She feels strongly that every patient she has encountered has made her a more seasoned therapist.
In January 2014, Cass relocated to High Point, North Carolina with her husband and three children due to a job change for her husband. She began working with Propel Pediatric Therapy in August of 2014 and has loved getting to know the therapists and all the families this company services. Servicing this community has been a great way for her to get to know the triad and the wonderful people who live here. Cass loves her job and the children she provides therapy too.
