Dr. AJ Cohen, PT, DPT, FDN II
AJ Cohen founded Up and Running Physical Therapy to pursue his passion of helping people see what they’re truly capable of; whether coming back from an injury that they thought they’d have forever, or running a personal best marathon. Originally from Manorville, New York, AJ graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Sacred Heart University. AJ trained in a variety of clinical settings including Orthopedic Outpatient, Acute Oncology, and Skilled Nursing and passed his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist exam. AJ is also certified in Functional Dry Needling II. As an ultra-marathoner and rock climber, he has an affinity for working with athletes and active-adults, helping them in their various sports.
