We believe that every individual possesses a degree of athleticism and our practice is not limited to the treatment of sports-related injuries. Living in Manhattan New York necessitates a fairly active lifestyle and we are dedicated to helping people of all ages and abilities recover from injuries that are a result of urban living. We offer tailored medical programs to treat a variety of conditions including industrial and workplace injuries, chronic medical conditions, and many other musculoskeletal injuries.At New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy in Manhattan New York, we provide a personalized, comprehensive and holistic approach to physical and sports medicine and rehabilitation. Through the practice of physiatry, a medical specialty that focuses on the recovery from musculoskeletal injuries, we restore function, promote healing, and alleviate pain in patients with a wide variety of acute injuries and chronic conditions. Whether you have a relatively minor injury, or you live with continuous pain or reduced musculoskeletal function, we can customize a treatment program that is tailored specifically to your individual condition, needs, and desired outcome.
Our one-on-one treatment approach begins with an expert evaluation and diagnosis by Michael Neely, D.O. physiatrist NYC. Dr. Neely, who is certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, is experienced at getting to the root of an injury and developing a customized non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation program that specifically addresses each patient’s needs. Dr. Neely evaluates factors such as a patient’s lifestyle and environmental factors, as well as their values and desired outcome (such as avoiding surgery or medication), and then prescribes a treatment program based on the most current and advanced therapies and technologies to treat the injury or condition and to prevent future recurrence.
Under the direction of Dr. Neely, our expert staff of physical therapists offers a range of goal-oriented treatment options. Our medical focus is designed to treat the framework of the body and includes such options as:
- Traditional physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Post-surgical rehabilitation
- Aging athlete care
- Non-surgical spinal decompression
- Cold laser therapy
- Posture re-education
- Pharmacological treatments
- FITT – total training
- Clinical pilates
We are traditionalists when it comes to the field of sports medicine and believe in practicing our specialty in a proven way that works. We stay up-to-date on the latest research, treatments and technology in the field, utilize a hands-on approach to treatment, and provide information to our patients about self-treatment techniques when appropriate. We also understand our patients’ needs and desired outcomes. Many of our therapists are sports enthusiasts that know what it feels like to be sidelined due to an injury and we are dedicated to helping patients to get back to the activities that they love. Our staff is comprised of avid skiers, snowboarders, marathon runners, tennis pros, yoga enthusiasts, and weekend warriors.
While we make every effort to keep our patients out of the operating room, there are some conditions and situations that may require surgery. When we think that surgery is the best option, Dr. Neely will work hand in hand with the appropriate surgeon to coordinate surgery along with a post-surgical recovery treatment plan. He has worked closely with many of the finest surgeons in the metropolitan New York area, covering a wide range of medical specialties, and will help you to make the best decision about surgical options. Following surgery, he will continue to provide you with post-surgical rehabilitation in order to get you back to optimal health and activity levels.
In addition to traditional therapies and rehabilitation, we are also dedicated to utilizing our knowledge of sports medicine to help our patients keep their bodies as fit and healthy as possible. We keep our patients involved and educated about every aspect of their disorder or injury and provide methods for maintaining optimal physical health in the future. This helps prevent recurrences of injuries or worsening of chronic conditions. We also develop customized fitness programs for patients so they can get back to the lifestyle and activity level that they enjoy and can perform in peak physical condition.
At New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, our approach to sports medicine is to provide a comprehensive set of options to maintain your athleticism, heal your body from injury, and keep it as pain free as possible. We do this through a combination of traditional medicine, advanced technologies and therapies, and a customized approach to treating each patient as an individual with unique needs and goals
