Heal Yourself With the Best!

ActiveCare Charity Work

ActiveCare Physical Therapy believes that the best Physical Therapists and best Physical Therapy experiences come from our work outside of our facility in addition to our work with you and our referrals. We do our best to promote various charities with on-site event medical treatment and support. We believe in supporting good causes that aid health-focused issues and promote healthy lifestyles.

We believe in social responsibility. Seeing what else is out there that people are dealing with makes us better Physical Therapists. It helps us understand what we need to do in our work to provide you with the Best Physical Therapy facility in midtown Manhattan. Take a look below at some of the events we have supported.

ActiveCare Physical Therapy Participates in the 2021 NYC Walk To Cure Arthritis

Team Activecare PT was honored this year to be named the Top Fundraising Team of the NYC Walk to Cure Arthritis! We raised over 25K this year with the help of our generous donors who include family, friends and patients. Team ActiveCare PT walked through midtown Manhattan to enjoy the beautiful weather and support this great cause which affects 54 million Americans. You can still donate even though the walk is done.
