Helping New Yorkers Feel Better in Their Bodies for More Than 20 Years

What I Offer

I specialize in orthopedic manual therapy, treating all musculoskeletal conditions and with special interest in spinal/pelvic/hip dysfunction, women’s health (including pregnancy and post-partum), biomechanical assessments and ergonomic evaluations. I take pride in evaluating and treating the body as a whole, identifying the root cause, not just treating the symptoms. I believe strongly in  educating all of my patients about their condition so that they can play an active role in their recovery. And I have a passion for instructing them in the  importance of utilizing proper postures, breathing, body mechanics, and ergonomics in daily life to ensure continued success. My ultimate goal is to help you return to optimal function, and to empower you with the lifelong tools needed to maintain it. 

 

I help people of all ages and abilities feel better in their bodies. I do this by providing one on one treatment with

hands on skills to ensure maximum results. And I offer this quality care in the convenience of your own home. 

A Little More About Me

I’ve been a practicing physical therapist for over 20 years.  I received my Bachelors of Science in Physical Therapy from New York University in 1998 and later earned an Advanced Masters specializing in orthopedic and manual physical therapy from Touro College. I am also a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist and currently perform many of the ergonomic evaluations in NYC for Performance Based Ergonomics. 

I spent my early years working at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, and then at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan where I earned the position of Advanced Clinician specializing in treating spinal conditions.  I have taken hundreds of hours of continuing education courses over the course of my career and continue to do so on an ongoing basis. When I am not treating patients, I love spending time outdoors with my family, and also enjoy running, cycling, and swimming.
