Physical Therapy

Care at Manhattan Physio Group is grounded in orthopedic manual physical therapy, the art and science of utilizing highly skilled, specific hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries. 

Senior physical therapists guide patients in performing detailed therapeutic exercises  customized to meet their therapy goals. The focus of therapy remains on motor control, pattern of recruitment, and timing of recruitment in order to retrain movement that often results in pain and disability. Therapeutic exercises are designed to improve strength, stabilization, range of motion, balance, and elite level functional performance.

PREVENTION

Why wait until you’re injured to take care of your body?  Our physical therapists can help you strengthen your physical weaknesses to help prevent further damage. Therapy draws upon a combination of manual manipulation and retraining the body’s own neuromuscular consciousness.

By utilizing their extensive knowledge and ongoing training, Manhattan Physio Group’s physical therapists help you understand the mechanics of your body as a holistic system. The integrated approach that they provide not only treats the body as a whole but it also identifies the root of the problem to help prevent further injury. Through manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education, exercise, and motor control retraining, our highly experienced, highly qualified physical therapists can balance and align your body to reach a more optimal state.

RECOVERY

With their extensive experience, especially with orthopedics, our therapists have tremendous results in treating a variety of patients, including athletes and professional dancers. Addressing both your most obvious symptoms and identifying underlying issues, our professionals are trained to provide you with individualized treatment that will continue to heal and align your body. Whether you are dancing professionally, competing in sports or sitting at a computer, you deserve to function at your best. Let us help you live the life you deserve!

MAINTENANCE

Keep your body at its best by allowing our physical therapists to maintain your balance and alignment. By bringing this conscientiousness back to your activity, our therapists draw upon extensive knowledge and qualifications to help you to keep making informed decisions to support your continued well-being. The custom created plans and exercises constructed by our professional will prevent you from slipping back into an injury or a damaging habit. Utilize our expertise to keep your mind and body active the right way.

GYROTONIC TRAINING®

Manhattan Physio Group offers individualized sessions using the
GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® created by Juliu Horvath.  

GYROTONIC® is a form of 3-dimensional, continuous motion that integrates breathing and the principles of both yoga and pilates into an optimal and individualized workout.  At Manhattan Physio Group, our sessions are based on physiotherapeutic knowledge that transforms GYROTONIC® into a more rehabilitative and preventative workout.  

Balance

With the stressors of city life surrounding us, GYROTONIC® allows us to return to a balanced state through continuous, meditative motion.  The simultaneous practice of breathing and movement not only aligns the body but also calms the soul. By strengthening the weaker parts of the body, the GYROTONIC® method stabilizes the body while relieving tension. The 3-dimensional motion unwinds muscles and fascia to open up the body. The sessions will not only help you survive in the midst of stress but thrive.

Focus

Often we lose touch with the purpose of our everyday actions. The thoughtfulness involved in the practice of GYROTONIC® returns intention back to our physical actions. Actively thinking about each move and breath teaches a mindfulness that persists into everyday life. Each thought and motion helps prepare the mind to multitask both mentally and physically.

Vitality

The wear and tear of daily stressors on your body takes a toll on your quality of life.  Prevent these imbalances or complement your recovery with individualized GYROTONIC® sessions.  The exercises both strengthen and lengthen your body while correcting the alignment of your spine. The custom combination of moves works to address any stress affecting the body. Whether the goal is prevention, anti-aging, or athletic success, GYROTONIC® sessions can aid you in your path.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is an integral part of maintaining overall health.  Amidst the craziness of everyday life, we often forget to relax. The accumulation of both physical and mental stress prevent your body from performing at its best. Rejuvenate your mind and body through massage therapy. By promoting circulation, boosting your immune system, and reducing inflammation, massage can help your body recover from the wear and tear of everyday life and even injury.

Massage helps ease myofascial pain and release trigger points while improving blood flow and oxygenation of tissue. Even after an acute injury or surgery, massage helps to decrease inflammation or edema, which then allows for an expedited regain of range of motion and function.  

Utilizing their extensive experience in treating sports or dance related injuries as well as the debilitating effects of stress, our therapists customize their sessions and collaborate with our physical therapists to help you return to your best self. Help your body stave off the harmful consequences of stress and injury with massage therapy.

Our professionals offer individualized sessions either in the office or at home to efficiently relieve your pain and stress.

Acupuncture

In order to provide a full service in holistic care, Manhattan Physio Group has partnered with independently-owned businesses to provide services at our location, making it convenient to all our patients and clients. We take a lot of pride in what we do and we only look for excellence, that is why Manhattan Physio Group has specifically selected these individuals to be part of our Wellness Center.

Whether it be an injury or daily stress, acupuncture can help restore balance to your mind, body, and soul. According to modern science, acupuncture stimulates sensitive and powerful points throughout nervous system by placing painless, thin needles into the skin at specific locations on the body. The World Health Organization attests that acupuncture can effectively regulate the immune system while also treating various ailments: post-operative pain, carpal tunnel, neck and back pain, respiratory issues, stress, anxiety, headaches, arthritis, weight-related issues, sciatica, and women’s health issues.

In order to restore health and a balanced flow of energy to your body, our experienced acupuncturists customize their sessions to address your individual injuries and wellbeing. Our acupuncturists’ safe and modern method of acupuncture integrates Western sports medicine rehabilitation into traditional Chinese and East Asian advanced needling techniques to provide musculoskeletal and neurological rehabilitation. The strategic placement of needles detoxifies muscle tissue while releasing endorphins, allowing for pain relief and a faster recovery without the invasiveness of surgical or medical intervention. Bring your body back to a balanced state with acupuncture!

*All of our Acupuncturists are Independent Affiliates and are not directly employed by Manhattan Physio Group.
