Rehabilitation & Restoration
IPA Manhattan Physical Therapy is committed to providing specialized care for individuals suffering from acute and chronic pain, complex sports related injuries, and neurological disorders. What sets us apart from traditional physical therapy practices and enables us to achieve results even for our complex cases is our unique and comprehensive approach to patient care called Functional Manual Therapy™.
Recent research and functional imaging of the brain continues to reveal the interrelationship between pain, muscular inhibition and poor movement strategies. Just mobilizing joints, giving patients stretching and strengthening exercises, or having a patient participate in “core stabilization” is not sufficient to address the complex interrelationship between the available mobility of the human system and the integration of automatic and volitional motor strategies. Our innovative approach to patient care and wellness seamlessly incorporates mobilization, neuromuscular facilitation, and motor control training restoring your body – stronger than before.
“Having someone who sees the whole and can understand that one injury effects other areas… that is the mastery of this kind of practice. It’s been a totally transformational experience.” - Fiona True
