West Hartford’s Daniel Albanese named to “40 Under 40” list

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

WEST HARTFORD – West Hartford resident and Physical Therapist Daniel Albanese, owner of Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates LLC-Torrington Physical Therapy and Torrington Wellness in Torrington, was named in the March 2011 issue of “Connecticut” magazine as a “40 Under 40” young professional recognized as a business and community leader. Daniel Albanese, his wife and two sons have been residents of West Hartford for eight years, and he is a 1997 UCONN graduate having received his BS in Physical Therapy.

“Connecticut” magazine publisher, Charles Monagan, and editors, Valerie Schroth and Dale Salm, stated in their “Generation Next” article, “In this debuting ‘40 Under 40’ feature, we are happy to show off our first class of young leaders. Nominations were sought from co-workers, neighbors, business associates and even family members. Our editors also plucked some likely candidates from the Connecticut scene.”

The article stated that, “Daniel Albanese is now in his 10th year of providing physical therapy in his hometown of Torrington.” The article explained that the physical therapy arm of the business provides everything from physical therapy, massage therapy to custom foot orthotics and Wii rehab training. Torrington Wellness also provides weight-management classes and nutritional supplements to consumers plus custom wellness solutions to doctors and health professionals. Albanese explained in the article that Torrington Wellness provides custom wellness solutions to health professionals “so they can earn an ancillary income to battle the decreased reimbursements from insurance carriers and other challenges they face to stay in business.”

Albanese commented, “This is certainly a significant recognition for me, but I could not have achieved this without our tremendously supportive staff. Our organization is very much a team intention. There are six physical therapists in addition to myself, two massage therapists, plus a stellar support staff. It is my sincere pleasure to share this recognition with all of our staff members. Throughout every year, we are striving to continually improve our knowledge and skills by attending several annual educational courses and seminars to keep up-to-date on the latest technologies and skills to incorporate into our practice. We pride ourselves on individualized one-on-one treatment, private treatment rooms, and our highly-trained licensed therapists.”

Daniel Albanese took over ownership of the privately-owned Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates office in 2007 having worked as a physical therapist with Ms. Maletta Pfeiffer prior to the purchase of the business. Ms. Pfeiffer began the practice 32 years ago in 1978. “Since taking on ownership,” he explained, “we have expanded the single office at 30 Peck Road to a second office at 333 Kennedy Drive in Torrington. Both offices provide the same high level of professional services. We have also added a complete wellness solution to better serve our patients and the community with massage therapy and weight management classes.”

Collectively, the therapeutic staff of Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates provides over 100 years of combined clinical physical therapy experience. “Our treatments emphasize the whole individual by utilizing a wide variety of therapeutic techniques,” commented Albanese. “Plus, through a statewide referral source, we maintain open communication with physicians for our patients’ optimum care. We treat neck and back pain, chronic and migraine headaches, neurological disorders (including MS, stroke, balance, gait, etc.), vertigo, work injuries, carpal tunnel, arthritic pain, sports injuries, orthopedic problems, and much more. All our plans of care are highly-personalized and can include such treatments as ultrasound, electric stimulation, heat/ice, whirlpool, traction, iontophoresis and hands-on techniques including massage, mobilizations, stretching, myofascial release and personalized exercise programs.”
