When it comes to recovery, to relief of pain, no one is exactly like you. We know. Over the decades, we have seen thousands of people, our Brooklyn neighbors. Each is different in the quality, or quantity, or location of pain or injury. Each has a different way of life that has impacted them.
That’s why Park Sports treats each of you with individual attention and care. And top of the line expertise. It’s why world-class institutions like the Hospital for Special Surgery and Mt. Sinai recommend us. So that you can get back faster to the things you love to do. And stay healthy once you are there.
Everyone is different. But at Park Sports everyone gets the same elite, top-quality, neighborhood care. To us, it’s personal.
Nicole at Union Street has been helping me with hip, back, and neck problems. She is miraculous! I was barely walking when I started with her in October. Now I am about to resume ballet.

She is very professional and knowledgable.
