Physical Therapy in New York, Midtown

New York Dynamic Neuromuscular Rehabilitation (NYDNR) is a premier provider of physical therapy in New York City. We offer patients in Midtown, Manhattan and other areas of NYC comprehensive services with a holistic approach that includes physical therapy techniques, innovative methods and non-surgical treatments.

Physical Therapy Techniques

Therapists employ a variety of hands-on manipulative techniques that work to guide specific body structures into correct position, so that proper alignment is achieved and strengthening can ensue. The use of innovative methods are also put into place and include:

  • Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment (CAREN)
  • Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)
  • Extra Corporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)
  • Gait Laboratory
  • Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)
  • Ultrasound Technology

Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy

ESWT and EPAT are ground-breaking non-surgical treatments that work to restore function in patients who are suffering from neuromuscular disorders. The treatment is employed by pinpointing affected areas through ultrasound technology and subjecting the specific targets with shock and pressure waves. The concentrated waves rehabilitate damaged tissues by:

  • Stimulating metabolism
  • Increasing perfusion
  • Accelerating healing

The technology is particularly useful in conditions such as plantar fasciitis which is commonly seen in individuals who participate in activities that involve running and jumping such as basketball, tennis and running. It is also useful as a regenerative tool for disorders of muscle, tendon and bone and is used as a therapy for myofascial pain syndrome.

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

DNS therapy operates under the theory that human movement is a delicate balance of transferring the body's weight to achieve maximum stability without compromising the structures of the frame. In short, ambulation and other movement is efficient without straining the bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons. During DNS treatment, patients are treated for misalignments, dysfunctions, issues with posture and control dysfunctions with an approach that takes the individual back to positions of early development and uses treatment to progress function as it is tolerated.

Ultrasound Technology

Precise and comprehensive diagnoses are more efficiently made with the use of ultrasound. This technology, which is utilized often in medicine in a variety of specialties, also allows medical professionals to pinpoint sources of reduced mobility and pain in specific areas of the body such as the hip and spine.

Holistic Approach

The staff at NYDNR treats patients in NYC, Midtown and Manhattan with a holistic approach to medicine, because they believe that wellness involves the whole person, not just a targeted muscle group or injured bone. Complete healing occurs when a patient recovers not only physical function, but enjoys health of the emotions, mind and spirit as well. Patients are not only restored, but sent away with the skills to maintain health by employing proper techniques that encourage effective movements.

Gait Laboratory

The gait laboratory works by diagnosing a runner's movements and helping the athlete to improve performance by pinpointing ineffective running techniques and habits. The lab identifies specific issues such as:

  • Running style
  • Efficiency and economy
  • Foot structure
  • Biomechanical disruptions
  • Dysfunctional gait patterns


This cutting-edge technology is a virtual realty tool that maps a patient's body movements by taking force measurements during specific activities. A color-enhanced map shows individuals targeted muscle groups and the amount of activity or rest a specific muscle endured during the prescribed activity.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy techniques employ a scientific approach to medicine that employs heavily researched methods of manipulating the muscles, bones and joints of the body in order to restore them to function. Physical therapists undergo extensive education and training that prepares them to engage in the significant task of restoring patients lives through an approach that is varied and prescribed for each individual circumstance.
