Meet The Team
Dr. Connor Sheridan
Connor Sheridan received his Doctor of Physical Therapy at the American International College in Springfield and received his undergraduate in Sports Medicine from Westfield University. Connor enjoys working with people of all ages and activity levels who are passionate about achieving their goals.
While at Westfield, Connor played on the varsity baseball team and after being sidelined due to sports related injuries, he became more interested in PT and strength training. Because he spent a lot of time in physical therapy as a patient, he knows what it’s like to be in the shoes of an injured athlete. He values building relationships with his athletes and takes pride in seeing them improve and make their way back to the field, court, etc.
Being able to work one-on-one with his athletes is important to Connor and he likes to utilize a mix of manual therapy techniques, strength and conditioning principles, and Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) concepts into his clinical practice.
In his free time, Connor can be found lifting weights, practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, snowboarding, and spending time with his friends, family and girlfriend, Nicole. Connor is looking forward to traveling more in the future to attend various PRI courses and for vacations. Connor is a proud member of the Ravenclaw house.

Dr. Glenn Affrunti
Glenn Affrunti received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from American International College in Springfield, MA. Glenn enjoys working with a wide variety of people, whether they are returning from an injury or looking to improve their overall health and performance.
After having to go through several shoulder surgeries and never feeling like he was 100%, Glenn was inspired to find a better way. Having experience as a former patient, Glenn values the one on one time he gets with all of his clients. He implements a variety of manual techniques, individualized strength and conditioning programming, and Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) concepts.
Being a Long Island native, Glenn enjoys a good cup of coffee and a bagel. You would be hard pressed to find a Netflix documentary that he hasn’t yet seen, or a podcast he hasn’t yet heard. When he’s not consuming useless information you can find Glenn spending time with his girlfriend Stephanie, practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, in the gym, or playing golf with his friends.
Glenn is the 3rd proud member of house Raven Claw. Be sure to say hi to him when you see him at our Wellesley location. Welcome to the team Glenn!
