Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation
At New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, we provide our patients with individualized and comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation programs. Our holistic approach encompasses non-surgical treatments that relieve pain, promote healing and prevent future injury, combined with patient education in physical therapy techniques, fitness, general wellness, and ergonomics. This comprehensive treatment strategy aims to optimize results, shorten recovery time and prevent re-injury.
Our commitment to excellence begins with a focus on personalized attention. Our physical therapists recognize that each person has their own unique needs and desired outcomes. At the outset of care, each patient’s medical and physical history is assessed along with other lifestyle factors and a personalized treatment program is developed based on the patient’s injury, age, sport, and other lifestyle needs. We also take into account unique factors such as patterns of movement, body alignment, postural habits, and treatment goals in order to develop the most effective customized physical therapy and rehabilitation plans possible. Just as no two patients are exactly the same, no two treatment plans are exactly the same.
Customized treatment plans are designed to increase strength, restore range of motion and alleviate pain. Physical therapy and rehabilitation programs are developed using the most effective treatment methods available, including:
- Advanced manual therapy techniques
- Joint mobilization (Australian Maitland approach)
- Trigger point therapy and myofascial release
- Muscle energy techniques
- McKenzie exercise programs
- Postural training
- Strengthening, flexibility and mobility training
- Balance/proprioception training
- Post-operative rehabilitation
- Modalities (mild electrical stimulation and ultrasound)
- Cold laser therapy
- Therapeutic exercise
- Home exercise programs
Our expert therapists work one-on-one with each patient to ensure that their treatment goals are met. Therapy programs are continually reassessed to monitor changes and improvements in a patient’s condition. In addition to intensive hands-on treatment received in our offices, we integrate physical therapy into the daily lives of our patients and provide each patient with a roadmap to follow for optimal recovery. We believe that physical therapy is an active process. Therefore, each patient is provided with the tools they need, such as exercises and treatment related information, in order to continually improve and remain healthy outside of our offices. This creates a results-driven attitude that accelerates healing and promotes healthy living.
There are numerous reasons why our patients seek physical therapy. We treat people from all walks of life, at all ages, and in all physical conditions. Our expert team develops customized programs to address these common conditions, among others:
- Sports injuries
- Running injuries
- Dance and performance injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Shoulder/rotator cuff injuries
- Foot and ankle pain
- Tendonitis and bursitis
- Post-surgery management
Quality is a cornerstone of our practice. We recruit some of the most highly qualified and skilled physical therapists from around the world. Each therapist has a mastery level knowledge in manual therapy techniques, is trained extensively in-house, and attends intensive continuing education programs in order to remain at the forefront of the latest knowledge and techniques in the field.
When necessary, our team also works with other medical professionals in order to help patients recover from an injury or procedure. If a patient is referred to us by a physician or surgeon, we carefully follow the doctor’s recommended recovery plan and keep them regularly apprised of the patient’s progress. If we feel that a patient should seek additional medical care, we can help coordinate care with some of the finest physicians in New York.It is our philosophy, customized treatment strategy, emphasis on personalized attention, and commitment to excellence that distinguish New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy as one of the premier providers of physical therapy and rehabilitation in the New York metropolitan area.
