“Just a few sessions combining INDIBA with manual myofascial release can achieve what months of physical therapy fail to accomplish.” – Dr. Lev Kalika


Modern technology has enabled scientists to gain a greater understanding of how human cells function, and the mechanisms behind cellular repair and regeneration. Cells are electrically charged by ions, but when injury occurs, the ionic charge of affected cells is disrupted.

INDIBA therapy is a type of transfer of energy capacitive and resistive (TECAR) therapy that helps to restore the ionic charge of damaged cells, for faster injury healing and rehabilitation. By introducing an external electrical charge at a specific frequency of 448 kHz, our INDIBA machine stimulates and accelerates tissue healing, and helps to restore the optimal ionic charge of affected cells. INDIBA therapy is the most effective form of TECAR therapy, now available at NYDNRehab.

About Dr. Lev Kalika

From early on in his career, Dr. Kalika set out to revolutionize the way humans injuries, pain syndromes and movement disorders are treated. Old-school approaches to rehabilitative medicine often fall short of providing long-term relief from musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, and patients are often forced to resign themselves to a certain level of disability. Conventional injury rehabilitation often fails to restore functional neuro pathways, to eradicate compensation patterns acquired post-injury.

Modern technology and advancements in science have provided us with the tools and knowledge to reimagine standard-of-care. The NYDNRehab clinic features a broad array of technological tools that allow us to successfully measure, diagnose and treat injuries, pain syndromes and movement disorders. Technology takes the guesswork out of physical therapy and replaces it with reliable data that drives fast and effective healing and recovery.

Dr. Kalika is an expert in high-resolution diagnostic ultrasound, and has extensive training in a variety of treatment modalities. He has authored multiple scientific works on topics such as diagnostic ultrasonography and ultrasound guided dry needling. Our INDIBA machine is the newest addition to our technological treatment toolbox at NYDNRehab.

Our unique combination of experience, expertise and advanced technologies sets NYDNRehab apart as the premier physical therapy clinic in NYC.


Regenerative Therapies Enhance
the Healing Process

Your body comes fully equipped with its own innate healing mechanisms, but they sometimes need a little nudge to initiate the healing process. Regenerative technologies use non-invasive waves set at specific frequencies to stimulate healing at the cellular level.

Regenerative technologies found exclusively at NYDNRehab include:

Focused Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

Focused ESWT is an effective tool for healing damaged tendon, muscle and bone tissue. This technology produces high frequency sound waves to stimulate the body’s own reparative mechanisms.

Extracorporeal Magnetic Transduction Therapy (EMTT)

EMTT is a fairly new technology that transmits high energy magnetic pulses to targeted tissues. The magnetic waves synchronize with the body’s own magnetic fields, causing a disturbance that triggers a regenerative response.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)

EPAT, also known as defocused shock wave therapy, uses acoustic pressure waves to enhance blood circulation to targeted tissue, to stimulate cellular metabolism and accelerate the healing process.

High Energy Inductive Therapy (HEIT)

HEIT uses electromagnetic fields to penetrate cells, tissues, organs and bones, to reactivate the electrochemical function of cells and cell membranes.

INDIBA CT9 Radiofrequency Device

INDIBA CT9 Radiofrequency Device

Our INDIBA Tecar therapy machine converts electrical current into a stable radio frequency current of 448 kHz, designed to increase and stabilize the exchange of ions in damaged cells, evoking a regenerative response that accelerates healing. INDIBA can be used to successfully treat joint and muscle disorders, low-back pain, sports injuries, surgical incisions and various pain syndromes. Another therapeutic effect of INDIBA is extreme and prolonged cellular hyperthermia. Due to this effect, INDIBA therapy combined with manual therapy and soft tissue tissue manipulation enables instantaneous release to occur, significantly shortening the number and duration of physical therapy sessions. What is normally accomplished in two months of physical therapy can be accomplished in 3-4 sessions with INDIBA.

Regenerative Ultrasound Guided Injection Therapies

Injection therapies use natural/neutral solutions that stimulate cellular repair by either nourishing or irritating the targeted cells. Guidance by ultrasound ensures that the injected substances hit their mark, for maximum effectiveness.

Physiological Benefits of INDIBA CT9

The INDIBA CT9 radiofrequency device harnesses electrical current and converts it to a radiofrequency of 448 kHz that elevates the biological exchange of ions in cellular membranes. Because ion-exchange membranes are electrically conductive, exposure to electromagnetic waves at a specific frequency evokes both a bio-stimulation and a thermal effect.

INDIBA therapy is often used in conjunction with other therapeutic techniques to reduce pain and accelerate healing. Physiological benefits of INDIBA therapy include:

  • Pain management

  • Elevated blood volume and enhanced blood flow

  • Enhanced delivery of oxygen and nutrients to damaged cells

  • Thermal effect on targeted tissues

  • Elevated metabolism

  • Reduced inflammation

  • Restoration of cell membranes and cell function

  • Proliferation of stem cells

  • Restoration of ionic balance in tissue cells

  • Restoration of hyaluronic acid fluidity in the interfascial layer

When combined with other therapeutic techniques and regenerative technologies, the INDIBA CT9 device renders unparalleled results for patients. INDIBA therapy delivers radio frequency waves that serve to activate intra- and extra-cellular healing mechanisms, and help to prepare soft tissues for more effective manual interventions, achieving faster and longer-lasting results.

Superior Treatment Yields Faster Results

Superior Treatment Yields Faster Results

Your body is designed to heal itself, but the healing process takes time, and without professional intervention, damaged tissues may not heal in ways that restore optimal function. To get fast and enduring results that restore pain-free functional movement, you need the help of skilled and experienced specialists, trained and certified in cutting-edge therapies.

  • Highest resolution diagnostic ultrasound imaging, for accurate diagnosis and monitoring of progress
  • State-of-the-art computerized technologies to precisely measure motor parameters, at baseline and throughout treatment
  • Sonoelastography and superior microvascular imaging (SMI), to measure signs of tissue healing
  • Cutting-edge regenerative technologies, to jump-start and accelerate healing
  • Advanced equipment, enhanced with artificial intelligence, to foster restoration of neural pathways and restore optimal coordinated muscle firing patterns
  • The experience and expertise of dedicated professionals
  • Personalized treatment protocols, based on your unique profile

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.
