    Manual therapy is a type of physical therapy that involves the use of hands-on techniques to improve the mobility and function of the musculoskeletal system including the fascial system.

Our philosophy is to reduce the local and connected pain and restore movement through precise functional therapy.

    New York Manual Therapy is certified through Functional Patterns, and adopts the big 4 (Standing, walking, running, and throwing) as the cornerstone of functionality. We have a very structured movement system that teaches you to become more efficient in each of these areas. If we are not treating your pain, then we are teaching you have to move better and make better decisions when it comes to exercise selection, not every exercise is a good exercise.

  • Why don't you accept insurance?

Therefore, we are not in-network with any insurance companies and do not accept insurance payments.
