Rehab

Prehab in NYC

When a runner is faced with an injury, it can be devastating. Usually, complete rest from running activities is advised by physical therapists. However, a complete rest from running is not always a good idea for quick runners rehab. Our goal is to make your body move correctly and efficiently as soon as possible. We offer the most advanced runners rehab treatment along with effective cross-training options and Alter-G antigravity treadmill. These methods will improve your recovery and will keep you in touch with the training process without having a long unmotivated break.

Running Analysis

Running analysis in NYC

Running analysis can help to identify biomechanical faults, identify the running style mistakes, pinpoint problems with your running form and demystify wrong beliefs about running. Running analysis is very important for Injury prevention as it creates a point of reference for a runner. Running analysis also shows the assessment of running efficiency and running economy. At NYDNR we have the most advanced technology and expertise in performing running gait analysis. The runner will receive a complete cutting edge digital report as well as in depth explanation and recommendation on how reduce injury, improve running form and efficiency.

Running Form Analysis

Running form analysis clinic

Running form analysis is an important part of NYDNRehab’s running physical therapy in NYC. It helps show you how you are currently running and will allow us to show you how to run with the correct posture and the correct posture for everyday living. You will be able to have a faster pace with the least amount of effort. We will be able to see where there is muscle weakness or imbalances for injury prevention by using technique modification.

Biomechanical analysis

Alignment, movement, performance, function & biomechanical analysis

Every individual is unique with different biomechanics and neural control. Changing your running form involves much more than just changing your form. If you change to a mid foot or forefoot strike what kinds of biomechanics are you employing? Do you have the neuromuscular control to accompany these running form changes? Do you have the necessary ranges of motion and the strength in potential compensation patterns to fend off both subtle and dramatic running form changes. We have the knowledge and the top technology to help you make the best choices based on the answers to these key questions.

Regenerative Therapy

Regenerative therapy

Effective regenerative treatment for runners for chronic overuse is one of the key directions in modern medicine science. Among others, Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) and Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) are the most approved and effective non- invasive methods for runner’s regenerative therapy.

Marathon Prep

Marathon prep

We are experts when it comes to running and training for the sport of running. Most runners know how far they have run for their marathon and some may even know how fast they have run. The important part that we help with is teaching runners how to run and helping them understand that there is a technique to running efficiently for peak performance. At NYDNRehab, the best running physical therapist in NYC will help you train to compete in marathons, as well as other running events you may be interested in. With the correct training, preparation and treatment of running-related injuries, we have the expertise and the latest technology to make sure you show up on race day prepared.

Marathon Recovery

Marathon recovery

It is extremely important to have proper post marathon recovery, especially if you got running injury knee, and this is a very critical factor that many runners neglect. It can be very dangerous to immediately return back to training or running in another race. These runners will find a loss of performance and will suffer from overtraining symptoms. If runners do not properly recover from a marathon, they will increase the risk of injury and potentially make it more difficult to run marathons and stay in shape. NYDNRehab helps athletes promptly heal injury knee in NYC after unsuccessful sports events and make their best at the following competitions.

Alter-G AntiGravity Treadmill

Services for runners with Alter-G antigravity treadmill

Get back running or into the game faster than ever before by allowing you to train harder, sooner. This state-of-the-art equipment that provides accurate, safe, and comfortable partial weight-bearing support while promoting normal gait patterns. By reducing impact and stress on the lower extremities, patients can push their rehabilitation further by returning to physical activity such as running sooner than ever before.

Barefoot Running & Shoe Fit

Running injury treatment

At NYDNRehab, the best running physical therapist in NYC will help you analyze both walking and running gait patterns by focusing on the proper footwear, orthotics and the various types of running shoes available. Supportive footwear can cause weakness and fragile feet and ankles. This is why the transition to barefoot running has to be slow, deliberate and planned. We can help you when transitioning to barefoot running and we can address the muscles that may have become weak over the years, and help you strengthen these problem areas to decrease the risk of injury when transitioning to a new chosen style of running. In cases of foot pain or discomfort during running, it is important to determine whether the cause is a static condition such as malpositioned toes, foot deformities, or incorrect weight bearing. It is also important to differentiate whether pain occurs on standing or during running. Foot-pressure distribution can be measured during both running and standing, and represents a useful addition to the clinical examination. The measurements can also be important for optimal adjustment of running shoes or sole inserts.

Dr. Kalika, I just want to thank you and your incredible team for helping me recover and run the NYC marathon for the 30th time this coming Nov. 7th. As you can see in the attached poster, the NYRRC had selected me as one of the runners in this year’s marketing campaign. When I got injured in June and visited various Dr. with no improvement , I was referred to you. When I came in, I could hardly walk, never mind running. Now I’m ready to tackle the NYC marathon for the 30th time! Thanks to Nick, Gregg, Sunny and Anna!! Your team is great and thanks to “your incredible personal attention” to my injuries! I’m ready!!

About the author

Dr. Lev Kalika has revolutionalized the methodology of treating knee pain and other motor disorders of the lower kinetic chain by introducing unique integrative approaches and combining Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), C.A.R.E.N (computer assisted rehabilitation environment), biofeedback force plate retraining and the most solid conventional approaches in his New York City’s Midtown practice. The results of these new methods are quicker, deeper and longer lasting when compared with basic physical therapy being used today.

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.
