About Us

Function First Physical Therapy PC, a 100 % physical therapist owned private orthopedic practice, has been returning patients to their full function of everyday demands and sports performance for over 16 years in the Flatiron/Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

We would like to personally thank all of our current/ former patients and referring physicians for spreading the word and allowing us the privilege to continue to serve our community. Our skilled physical therapists combine traditional physical therapy techniques, alternative philosophies, and sound evidence-based research to eliminate pain, improve function and meet your maximal potential.

We offer one-on-one sessions and pride ourselves on educating each patient on their condition while teaching a thorough, individualized home exercise program to equip them with strategies for the future.

Our focus from initial contact to resolution of your current condition is exceptional customer service and creating an open, honest relationship based on the accountability of both therapist and patient. We are not satisfied until you, the customer, is completely satisfied and we will do everything in our power to make that a reality.

Functional Manual Therapy┬« is an integrated and seamless treatment system which couples mechanical treatment of the joints, soft tissues, visceral and neurovascular systems with manual neuromuscular facilitation to enhance optimum motor control and human function.” – Institute of Physical Art
