Who we are?

NYDNRehab is a boutique multi-specialty rehab clinic located in Manhattan, NYC. We feature research-grade lab technology that is unavailable for clinical use anywhere else in the US. We believe that for physical therapy and musculoskeletal rehab to be effective, it should be based on objective measurements and precise evidence-based motion data and radiological analysis.

We are experts in musculoskeletal ultrasonography, and we use the highest resolution ultrasound machine featuring elastography and superb microvascular imaging. Our experienced staff is skilled in manual therapy and certified in multiple evidence-based approaches.

We believe that success in rehabilitative medicine is dependent on the ability to deliver individualized care. We use our groundbreaking 3D motion analysis technology and MSK ultrasonography to establish each patient’s individual profile. We integrate patient profiles with our comprehensive clinical exam skills to create customized treatment plans for each patient.

We pair advanced custom software with technologically advanced hardware to enable multiple sophisticated feedback features for unparalleled patient treatment. Our team of multi-specialty rehab providers cares about our patients, and we are passionate about what we do.

Why Choose us?

New York Dynamic Neuromuscular Rehabilitation is a boutique Manhattan physical therapy and chiropractic clinic. Our highly qualified team of licensed therapists are dedicated and passionate about their work.


Personalized One-on-One Patient Care

We recognize that every patient is unique, and we never take a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. Every patient gets individualized treatment, with one-on-one sessions focused on their unique needs.

Although some of our therapies are sophisticated and complex, we do our best to explain them in language you can understand. At NYDNR, the patient plays a central role in their own rehabilitation. We answer your questions and listen to your feedback.

We do our best to work around your busy schedule. We collaborate with your other health and fitness providers, provide home exercise routines and communicate via telehealth when you can’t visit the clinic.


State-of-the-Art Technology

Our ground-breaking diagnostic technology, experience, multifaceted methodology and comprehensive approach allows us to provide cross-discipline expertise. We provide all-inclusive care that spares you from having to go from doctor to doctor to get results.

We are experts in musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasonography, the most advanced and clinically useful diagnostic tool for musculoskeletal conditions.

We use the most advanced, highest resolution ultrasound machine, not available elsewhere in NYC, with capabilities for elastography and superior microvascular imaging.

We are the most technologically advanced private clinic in the US, with research-grade gait and motion analysis technology.


Innovative Treatment

Our clinic stays up-to-date with the latest technological innovations and scientific updates in physical therapy, sports medicine, orthopedics, musculoskeletal radiology, chiropractic, running medicine, performance enhancement and injury prevention. We provide continuing postgraduate education to our therapists, from the most advanced evidence-based sources.


Better Care Means Superior Results

Today’s healthcare providers, hospitals and larger institutions are shifting patient care to costly procedure-based and invasive interventions. Yet many musculoskeletal conditions can be resolved with less expensive and lower risk conservative care.

The institutional care model uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) because it generates more money for hospitals.


Diagnostic ultrasonography has multiple significant clinical advantages over MRI

  • Less expensive than MRI
  • Better able to link patient symptoms to imaging results
  • Lets us evaluate the patient in motion
  • Lets us view nerves along their entire pathway (MRI does not capture images of nerves)
  • Highest resolution imaging

Our treatment approach is founded on diagnostic sonography combined with technologically advanced motion and gait analysis. Our goal is to provide advanced diagnosis for conservative non-invasive care. Our approach is patient-centered, not procedure-centered.


Practice Philosophy

Rehabilitation is time consuming and time shouldn’t be wasted

– Prof. Karel Lewit, Charles University, Prague

At NYDNR we don’t waste your time with symptomatic and ineffective treatments. We use cutting edge comprehensive approach utilizing best methodology and technology available. Most importantly we really care to make you feel and move better.


Lev Kalika Clinical Director and DC, RMSK

Dr.Kalika revolutionized foot and ankle care by using high resolution diagnostic ultrasonography for structural diagnosis, combined with with gait and motion analysis technology. Dr.Kalika’s motion and gait analysis lab is the only private lab in the US that features research-grade technology found only at top research universities, made available to patients in his private clinic.

In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
