Clifford Shulman, PT
Facility Director / Physical Therapist
Clifford Shulman, PT, CFP, CTP is the Facility Director of PHOENIX’s Black Mountain clinic. He has been helping people move better for over thirty years. He has achieved a reputation amongst patients and physicians for his outstanding and thorough care which addresses each individual in a skilled, informed and holistic manner. He has advanced training in multiple orthopedic and manual therapies, as well as in therapeutic exercise and neuromuscular reeducation approaches. His training includes certifications in myofascial release, dry needling and craniosacral methods as well as specialized movement education approaches such as Feldenkrais, Trager, Laban Movement Analysis and Ideokinesis. Through years of study and practice, he has found that these methods often complement most traditional services and offer considerable options for change even for people who have not been helped by physical therapy previously.
Cliff is especially interested in helping people learn how to develop the movement habits that allow themselves to move more comfortably. A respected educator as well as therapist, he has led workshops and seminars for numerous audiences, including Cheshire Fitness Center, Black Mountain Yoga, The Arthritis Foundation, Gilda’s Club, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Beth Israel Medical Center, Cabrini Medical Center, New York Open Center, and others.
In his spare time, Cliff enjoys hiking, music, dancing, yoga, and visiting art galleries. He is also learning to play the hammered dulcimer. He was raised in Virginia and Maryland and now enjoys the beauty of the mountains and the abundance of cultural activities in the Asheville area. Prior to relocating to North Carolina, he was in private practice in New York for over ten years.
