Therapy Services in NYC
Physical Therapy is one of the cornerstones of the integrative treatment plan at CSC+M. When prescribed, it is a powerful tool not only to increase flexibility, strength, and endurance, but it also serves to relieve pain, restore function, and correct movement disorders. At CSC+M our approach is patient centered, functional, and focused on YOU!
To do this, our Physical Therapists utilize the most up to date evidenced based practices, and are constantly brushing up on their knowledge to make sure that you have a speedy healing process. We utilize many tools and techniques, from the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), to the Functional Movement Screen (FMS), and employ many principles taught by the Postural Restoration Institute(PRI). On top of that we utilize many strength and conditioning principles from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), to make sure you are strong and healthy to live the life you want to.
I went to CSC+M for a shoulder injury and was very happy with the results. They have a talented team and multiple treatments available. I was interested in myofacial treatment, which is why I sought out Dr. Anselmi in the first place. The chiropractors, PT and massage therapist all helped to get me healed and on my way. The at-home exercises which I continue to do have kept me painless and functioning. The support staff is helpful and efficient. CSC+M is now at the top of my list.
Was referred to this place by a friend for my sciatica issues. Started in late June with an assessment by Dr.Chris Anselmi and have been working with him and Dr.Miller for PT. It’s been a little over 2 months and already feeling better. As with most of sports injuries, we need to do our part with exercises and stretches. I’m doing the same and hope to be fully up and running (literally). Their treatment is very organized with a chiropractic session, followed by PT and a massage. You don’t have to repeat your story with every treatment as the therapist is briefed in advance and they start working without bothering you. My experience has been good so far and I’d recommend this place to runners and people with sports injuries.
