More About Stephanie and Jenna:

Dr. Jenna Kantor, PT, DPT runs her own private practice, Jenna Kantor Physical Therapy, PLLC, and an online wellness program for performing artists called Powerful Performer. She is licensed to treat in New York and Pennsylvania.

Upon graduating, Jenna Kantor worked professionally in musical theatre for 15+ years then found herself ready to move onto a new chapter in her life. Jenna was teaching ballet to kids ages 4 through 17 and group fitness classes to adults. Through teaching, she discovered she had a deep interest in the human body and a desire to help others on a higher level. She was fortunate to get accepted into the DPT program at Columbia University. 

Dr. Kantor co-founded and runs Fairytale Physical Therapy which brings musical theatre shows to children in hospitals. She hosts the Dance PT Podcast and guest hosts on the podcast Healthy, Wealthy, and Smart. She has served as the NYPTA SSIG Advocacy Chair, the NYC Conclave 2017 committee, NYPTA Social media committee, was the NYPTA Public Policy Student Liaison, and co-founded the NYPTA SSIG. Dr. Kantor won the APTA PPS Business Concept Contest and made the top 40 List for an Up and Coming Physical Therapy with UpDoc Media before graduating PT school.

Jenna Kantor currently volunteers with the PPS Marketing & PR Committee and is the website builder for the American Academy of Physical Therapy. She provides complimentary, regular online content that advocates for the physical therapy profession. 

Stephanie Weyrauch, PT, DPT believes in a world where anyone can live a pain-free, fulfilling life. She takes a full-body holistic approach to patient care, identifying the underlying cause of your pain to reduce and often eliminate it so you can get back to doing what you love. She considers not just your pain problem but also your mindset and social situation to treat YOU the whole person--not just a body part. 

Dr. Stephanie started her career working in a small private practice in rural Minnesota, where providers were so sparse that people traveled across the region to receive care. Many of these patients were new moms, people with pelvic pain, or women suffering from menopausal symptoms who struggled to find a provider who listened to their concerns and addressed the source of their discomfort. When Dr. Stephanie moved to urban Connecticut, she noticed the same problem: People had difficulty accessing the pelvic floor physical therapy they needed--due to a lack of specialist providers, time constraints, and limitations from insurance companies. These experiences influenced Dr. Stephanie to focus her practice on orthopedics and pelvic floor physical therapy and make it convenient for people to access high-quality care.

With MovementX, her physical therapy practice is 100% mobile–she provides care in the comfort of your home, gym, or office. She brings a mobile treatment table and helps you decrease pain, increase strength/mobility, prevent injury, restore function, and coordinate your care plan. Wherever & whenever you need care, she can be there. It's convenient, valuable, & personalized to whatever you need. Call or text the number above to get directly in touch with her, and you can have a free phone consultation about what health goals you want to accomplish with specialized physical therapy care.
