Dynamic Neuromuscular Rehabilitation is a revolutionary multidisciplinary rehab facility with the emphasis on physical therapy and rehabilitation of patients suffering from back pain, neuromuscular, orthopedic and sports-related disorders.
Our approach is based on the functional model and the dynamic fusion of manual medicine into physical therapy and rehabilitation.
Our experience with the DNS – a breakthrough scientific method we were the first clinic in NYC to embrace allows us to integrate this reflex neuromotor CNS-based physical therapy into the treatment of back pain, sports injuries and orthopedic disorders.
Dr. Karel Lewit (our mentor and the godfather of European school of manual medicine and rehabilitation) once said: Rehabilitation is time consuming and the time can not be wasted.” With that in mind we have created a thoughtful and rational approach combining the most unique rehabilitation methods with modern physical therapy. Our therapeutic method is based on integration of most scientifically proven, innovative approaches and techniques such as Dr. Shirley Sahrmanns MSI and the DNS by Dr. Pavel Kolar among others.
Dr.Kalika’s truly multifaceted education and medical background allows us to be a one-stop clinic. Dr.Kalika’s proficiency in diagnostic ultrasonography, gait analysis evaluation as well as conventional and surface electromyography allows us a diagnostic precision unavailable at conventional physical therapy clinics.
Our physical therapy treatment is based on meticulous clinical evaluation of movement dysfunction using most advanced and scientifically proven examination techniques.
Dr Kalika’s experience goes back to working under one of the worlds leading physicians in the field of physical therapy and rehabilitation Prof. Vladimir Janda of the renowned Czech School of Rehabilitation, which was heralded by the Spine magazine as the worlds leader in the field of physical therapy and rehabilitation of the 20th century.
Dr. Kalika’s proficiency in imaging with diagnostic ultrasound, his many years of experience working with leading European sports medicine and back care specialists, his knowledge in orthopedics and sports medicine allow him deeper understanding of medical diagnosis and its implications for the rehabilitation. This type of cross discipline knowledge integration is indeed a rare occurrence among the practitioners in the fields of musculoskeletal medicine. Knowledge of medical diagnostics is rare among physical therapists and chiropractors, while the knowledge of functional medicine an understanding of movement is uncommon among medical doctors.
Our physical therapy facility uses the most technologically advanced rehabilitation equipment such as Alter-G (gravity reduced) treadmill, Spine force, and Wave Vibration therapy, force plate, visual and surface electromyography feedback training. Our individualized approach and broad expertise in musculoskeletal dysfunctions has helped patients with variety of neuromuscular and orthopedic disorders. Among our patients are star Olympians, elite professional athletes and NYC ballet dancers.
We are proudly the first NYC outpatient Gait and Motion analysis labs!
We use variety of advanced technology to diagnose, treat and monitor treatment of neuromuscular, orthopedic, sports medicine, myofascial and functional movement disorders.
