Pivotal Physical Therapy Treats a Variety of Injuries
At Pivotal Physical Therapy, our pain relief experts provide comprehensive treatment to New York City residents suffering from a variety of ailments. Our services can address orthopedic injuries, head and neck pain associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, women’s health, and post-cosmetic surgery treatment, among other issues. We will employ various massage, stretching, strength training, and joint mobilization techniques to alleviate your pain. We will also provide instructions regarding home exercise programs to complement your office visits and expedite your recovery process.
Pivotal Physical Therapy Specializes in Orthopedic Injuries
Our physical therapists are adept at treating the immediate trauma from an orthopedic injury as well as preventing future issues. We will evaluate your injury to determine a treatment plan that includes strengthening, stretching, and muscle reeducation. Furthermore, if we notice that poor biomechanics contributed to the injury, our staff will retrain you in more efficient movement patterns that will decrease your pain and increase your performance.
Our Trainers Are Experts in Women’s Health
Pivotal Physical Therapy’s clinical therapists possess specialized knowledge about women’s health. Our compassionate staff will design a treatment program to ease your pain that combines manual soft tissue and joint techniques with modalities, therapeutic exercises, neuromuscular reeducation, and biofeedback. We even offer Pilates training for pre- and postpartum.
Pivotal Physical Therapy Is NYC’s Leading TMJ Authority
At Pivotal Physical Therapy, we will ensure the health of your TMJ and its surrounding muscles, enabling pain-free talking, biting, and chewing. Our staff has more than 30 years of experience treating TMJ issues, including temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) as well as head and neck pain. Our therapies include targeted massages of your jaw and neck muscles, muscle realignment and reeducation, and ambulatory counseling to mitigate your symptoms and potentially eliminate the need for surgery.
We Can Remedy Pelvic Floor Pain in Men and Women
Pivotal Physical Therapy offers clinical education and treatment plans for men and women experiencing pelvic floor pain, which may affect the urinary system, digestion, and intercourse. During 45-minute visits to our New York City practice, we will perform manual procedures to alleviate pain and add strength, provide education regarding how to deal with your symptoms, and explain a home exercise program to supplement in-office therapies.
We Provide Post-Cosmetic Surgery Treatment
Treatment plans for patients who visit Pivotal Physical Therapy after face and neck lifts typically span 2 to 4 weeks. Our therapists will utilize gentle manual techniques to relieve issues including swelling, scar tissue rigidity, and compromised function. After a patient’s bi-weekly visits, he or she should experience reduced discomfort and a normal range of motion in the face, neck, and head muscles.
Pivotal Physical Therapy’s Pilates Approach
Our therapeutic exercises include Pilates, which will increase your strength and flexibility, improve your level of coordination and athleticism, and enhance your balance. Pilates is an overall treatment that can relieve pain or discomfort in all major body parts. You will receive one-on-one instruction from a therapist who will monitor your progress and amend your program accordingly.
