Dr. Tom Naro, MSPT, DPT, CEAS I, CEA II, CEAS III, AOEAS was born and raised in Westfield, MA. With inspiration from his parents he enrolled in the Physical Therapy entry-level Master’s program at Springfield College. The outpatient Physical Therapy setting caught his attention during clinical rotations so he sought out work in New Hampshire in 2006 after graduation. In 2007, Tom completed the level 1 residency program with the Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy out of Woburn, MA. He earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2010 from A. T. Still University through a post-professional transitional program while working full-time.
Tom has devoted hundreds of hours towards continued competency training to advance his expertise in the examination and treatment of the musculoskeletal system. From 2012-2017 he was a partner, manager and primary Physical Therapist at a private outpatient clinic in Farmington, NH. Here he grew the clinic’s reputation as a source of excellence in Physical Therapy and attention to patient care.
In 2017, Tom relocated back to his roots in Western MA when he began My PT. The format of the company allowed for a combination of personal and professional freedom. This allowed for advanced training as a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist through The Back School®, participation in BNI (Business Networking International), participation in the Family Business Center Round Table discussion group, and contract work.
An unfortunate turn of events happened on September 4, 2018 when Mary Naro, Tom’s mother passed unexpectedly from a stroke. Many people were touched by Mary’s loving heart and care, either as part of her family, circle of friends, or her patients as a registered nurse. Her story is one of courage, hope, and love for her family. She was the never ending cheerleader to her two boys’ lives, Anthony and Tommy.
With the spirit of mother, Tom continues his pursuit as becoming known to business and individuals as “My PT”.
