Our Holistic Approach to Physical Therapy
ActiveCare's approach to holistic physical therapy in NYC involves seeing the person as a whole, not just as a patient with an injured body part. The best patient treatment involves a holistic view of the individual. This incorporates the involved joint, the kinetic chain of movement, the power emanating from the core and the patient's abilities. It also incorporates the patient's lifestyle, commute, work requirements, home requirements, and sports and recreational activities. With these factors in mind, our therapists help our patients to set realistic goals and achieve them based on adherence to each patient's personalized treatment plan.
Our approach incorporates manual therapies from the Maitland Australian Physiotherapy Seminars and Mulligan mobilizations with movement and myofascial release techniques. Our therapists have advanced manual therapy skills and are instructors or lab assistants in continuing education seminars in order to constantly refresh and refine their techniques. We utilize Pilates because it is one of the best holistic exercise programs, especially for the rehabilitation population. Our treatments are thorough, well-rounded and holistically oriented, including rehabilitation programs that are unique to each individual.
In addition, we are part of a network of providers that includes physicians, surgeons, and chiropractors as well as alternative medicine practitioners that include acupuncturists, massage therapists and doctors who offer cutting-edge therapies. This team approach between physical therapists and referring practitioners is important for looking at the big picture and utilizing all modalities to progress rehabilitation as efficiently and thoroughly as possible.
