About Tribeca Physical Therapy

We are physical therapists who aim to provide high level physical therapy focusing on preventative health and wellness. Our clinical boutique offers individualized plans tailored to suit your personal goals. Our formula for best results is comprised of thorough understanding of your struggles and careful planning to design an optimal solution. We value one-on-one approach to strategically address your needs whatever stage you are in life. Our corner stone is practice of relationship-based physical therapy. We will serve as guides to you, active adults, who are seeking for a plan on how to get back to the routine, workouts, and sports activities you love. We believe these are all possible while staying away from excessive painkillers, injections, and unnecessary surgeries.

We, the founders, are long time best friends who had practiced quality physical therapy together for several years. We both assumed leadership roles in our previous jobs as well. We have inspired and influenced many like-minded people to grow in service, compassion, and collaboration. We are both certified wellness coaches which is a great complementary skill to becoming a true holistic healer.

We get excited when our clients say that they discover muscles they thought never had. After Clinical Pilates, members are describing they’re taller and learned new techniques on breathing. We attest to how people LOVE Pilates. That’s why we made sure that we have a Reformer in our clinic. We have helped tons of moms by guiding them through common problems occurring prenatal and postpartum recovery. We have had successes in treating men and women, who were first time racers for Spartan, 5K, 10K, half marathons and even the New York City marathon. We worked with dancers on how to improve their mobility and performance. People who considered surgery come to us to have a plan before and after surgery. It helped them get out of the anxiety around the surgery and choose the route that fit them best.

Our Core Values: Trust, Respect, Inspiration, Balance, Excellence, Collaboration, Authenticity (That’s TriBeCa!)


The health and safety of our patients and employees is Tribeca Physical Therapy’s top priority.
