Tiffany J. Rindell, PT, DPT, OCS

Dr. Rindell received her Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Vermont in 2001 and her doctorate in physical (DPT) therapy from Shenandoah University in 2012.  She has extensive experience treating patients with orthopedic conditions and is board certified in orthopedics (OCS) by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS).  She enjoys all aspects of orthopedic physical therapy including manual therapy, sports rehabilitation, spinal rehabilitation and pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation. In addition to orthopedics, she is Shoreline's primary vestibular therapist and attended a 6-day competency course in Vestibular Rehabilitation at Emory University where she successfully passed numerous practical, written and visual competency exams which enable her to effectively diagnose and treat a wide range of vestibular disorders including benign paroxismal positional vertigo (BPPV), unilateral vestibular loss/hypofunction, bilateral vestibular loss/hypofunction and other peripheral vestibular disorders responsible for dizziness and balance disorders. She is certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Clinical Instructor and is Shoreline's Center Coordinator of Clinical Education (CCCE) for physical therapy. As the CCCE, she is responsible for communicating with physical therapy schools throughout the country to establish and maintain student programs and clinical affiliations.  Lastly, she is a member of the faculty at Connecticut College in New London and teaches Human Anatomy to students looking to pursue a career in physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician's assistant, nursing, and medicine.

Tiffany is actively involved in the United States Tennis Association and is a certified instructor for the 10 and Under Tennis Program in Salem.  In addition to tennis, she enjoys traveling, hiking, skiing, kayaking and frequent trips to Vermont.
