A Physical Therapist Owned Practice Located Throughout Brooklyn
Our team addresses specific problems in the context of overall conditioning and fitness.
Our objective is to develop a deeper understanding of our patient's individual needs and collaboratively working together towards achieving their set health goals.
At Park Sports PT, we pride ourselves in offering our patients a range of specialties for a number of specific conditions and injuries. We serve patients throughout the nearby Brooklyn neighborhoods including Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Park Slope, Bushwick, Prospect Heights, Clinton Hill, and Greenpoint.
Here are some of the services we provide:
Our hands are very complex - involving many tiny bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles all working together to give us the ability to grab, pull, push, and feel the world around us.
The certified hand therapists at Park Sports specialize in treating a number of upper extremity injuries and conditions, fabricating custom splints (static and dynamic), and pre & postoperative rehabilitation.
Our team works closely with hand surgeons and orthopedic surgeons to develop appropriate and effective occupational therapy programs to help you regain mobility and strengthen your hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulders.
We rely heavily on our vestibular system to give us information about our body's position in the world. Our vestibular system is located in our inner ear and is responsible for letting us know which way is up, down, left, right, and everything else in between. It tells us how fast we're going and how fast we're stopping. Unfortunately, when the vestibular system encounters dysfunction it can affect our balance. The most common condition people suffer from related to the vestibular system is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). Luckily, there are treatments available to help alleviate and control vertigo using physical therapy.
All of our physical therapists are sports rehabilitation specialists. We have the distinct advantage of having a team of therapists that are very active and participate in sports themselves. They understand the physical demands that athletes undergo and the importance of a proper body mechanics. Our sports rehabilitation specialists work closely with athletes who have suffered an injury, developed a physical condition, or simply want to enhance their performance to develop effective programs for speedy recoveries.
With a strong focus on functional movement, proper muscle activation, retraining the body to avoid poor postural habits, body awareness, and manual therapy our team can get you back in the game faster, stronger, and better educated. Our goal is to make sure you avoid injury in the future with the knowledge we share with you during treatment.
Schroth Method / Scoliosis Treatment
Your spine serves different purposes such as protecting your spinal cord and supporting your body's weight. It has a natural curvature designed to hold us upright and withstand and absorb forces from our body doing different movements such as walking, running, jumping, and stretching. This curvature enables us with a certain mobility that helps us carry out day to day tasks.
Unfortunately, there is a condition that affects a small population known as Scoliosis. Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves irregularly. Scoliosis is normally diagnosed early on during childhood or teenage years, carrying on well into adulthood. Over time, the irregular curvature of the spine can become more extreme causing musculoskeletal issues and imbalances in the body. Although rare, in some cases, Scoliosis can lead to pain in other parts of the body due to overcompensation.
The Schroth Method was specifically designed to counteract those imbalances and to retrain the body's posture.
Pelvic Floor Therapy
The pelvic floor is comprised of a number of muscles that are responsible for providing support of the pelvic organs. The pelvic organs include the urinary bladder, intestines, and for women – the uterus. The pelvic floor controls the release of urine or excrement. Although pelvic floor dysfunction can occur in both men and women, this condition is far more common in women, especially those who are pregnant or have given birth.
Pelvic floor dysfunction may lead to any of the following conditions: urinary incontinence, incontinence of feces or gas, constipation due to tightness not associated with dietary of GI problems, chronic pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, and prolapse of female organs.
