Physical Therapy

Our physical therapists at Manhattan Sports Medicine treat problems and conditions ranging from sprains and strains to headaches, back and spinal conditions, sports injuries, tendonitis, post-operative surgery, sciatica, and acute and chronic pain.

Of course, our physical therapists are knowledgeable in anatomy, physiology and human biomechanics.  However, they are also dedicated, licensed professionals highly trained to deal with people experiencing a variety of physical complaints, including neck, mid and low back pain, herniated discs, arthritis, and painful injuries, in addition to pain that radiates to the arms and legs.

The therapists recognize that because each patient has a unique set of needs and goals, no two treatment plans can be the same.  At the outset of care, your medical and physical history is assessed along with other lifestyle factors.  The therapists then develop a personalized treatment program based on your specific injury, age, sport, and lifestyle needs.  Along with your unique treatment goals they take into account such factors as your characteristic body alignment, postural habits and patterns of motion in order to develop the most effective customized physical therapy and rehabilitation plan possible.

These customized treatment plans are designed to increase strength, restore range of motion and alleviate pain.  Working with our physical therapy team, you will learn how to use your body properly to gain strength and mobility, and thus prevent recurring injuries.  The physical therapists work closely with our physiatrist, your referring physician and other members of our health care team, such as our chiropractors and massage therapists.
