Concierge Physical Therapy
As New Yorkers, we recognize that time is tight and taking care of ourselves can be challenging. Concierge Physical Therapy is a higher level of service and convenience geared to the busy New Yorker. I will bring Physical Therapy services directly to you at the location of your choice. I will bring a table as logistically feasible and gear appropriate to the issues to be addressed.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The course of care begins with a conversation including your medical history, present situation, questions, concerns, and goals. This is followed by an initial evaluation, a complete musculoskeletal examination and movement screen that addresses posture, mobility, strength, stability, and fundamental movement patterns. This information allows us to understand what an issue is, where it is coming from, and why. We will discuss the findings of the initial evaluation and establish the plan of care together. Evaluation sessions are generally 60-90 minutes depending on what needs to be addressed.
Treatment seeks to alleviate pain, improve function, and increase activity tolerance. This is done through the restoration of mobility, strength, stability, and motor patterning. Everything in the body is connected to everything else, so both local and global weak links must be considered. Mobility is often initially addressed through use of manual therapy and may include soft tissue work, IASTM (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization), joint mobilization, myofascial / trigger point work, and stretching techniques in conjunction with neuromuscular taping and therapeutic exercises. Reactivation, restoration, and reintegration of damaged and painful areas is achieved through corrective exercises, progression of strength and stability, postural work, and body mechanics. Education is an important part of the process, as ultimately my job is to make myself obsolete by teaching you the knowledge and skills you need to take care of your body for the long term. You will have a progressive home exercise program to work on between sessions to solidify gains made in-session and to achieve steady improvement between sessions. Treatment sessions are 60 minutes.
