Manual Physical Therapy

As one of the most specialized clinics for manual therapy in Manhattan, NYC, Our Gramercy PT team applies manual physical therapy protocols to treat musculoskeletal and post-operative conditions.

We specialize in hands-on manual physical therapy. Our staff consists of dynamic physical therapists, occupational therapists who are among the top in their fields.  

While strength and stability training is an integral part of the restorative journey, manual therapy is the focal treatment approach for all GPT therapists.  Manual therapy is also one of the most difficult therapeutic interventions but for us in Gramercy Physical Therapy, it is also the most rewarding one.
