Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Orthopedic Physical Therapy involves various hands-on techniques, manual therapy, and exercises to improve flexibility and strength of muscles, reduce inflammation in joints and tendons, reduce scar tissue post-surgery, and increase the range of motion of joints.

Pre/Post-Surgical Rehab

Strengthening specific muscle groups before surgery can help regain the strength back faster in post-operative phase. Post-surgical rehab should be started as soon as possible, to reduce restrictions with joint range of motion, scar tissue formation, improve strength and endurance.

Post/Prenatal Rehab

A woman’s body is constantly changing during pregnancy. The increase in weight causes increased strain on the spine, along with the increased ligament laxity could cause pain and instability in the lumbar spine, pelvis, and thoracic spine.

Spine Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy for spine involves reducing pain and spasm with various modalities and manual therapy, improving range of motion and strength with exercises, and conditioning with aerobic exercises to return back to pre-injury state.

Women’s Health

The pelvic floor is a complex of joints, ligaments, connective tissue, and muscles. All of which can be affected due to various reasons causing tightness, weakness, and pain.

Ergonomic Assessment

Most people spend 80% of their day at work, which means they are doing some kind of repetitive activity leading to tightness, pain, spasm and tendinitis.

Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and frustrating.

GT therapy can help you enjoy life again.Our unique technique and instruments enable the treatment of scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation that allows for faster rehabilitation and with greater success when the goal is restoring range of motion, eliminating pain, and restoring normal function.  

McKenzie Institute

The McKenzie Method of MDT is a reliable assessment process intended for all musculoskeletal problems, including pain in the back, neck and extremities (i.e., shoulder, knee, ankle etc.), as well as issues associated with sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms and intermittent numbness in hands or feet. If you are suffering from any such issues, then a MDT assessment may be right for you! 

Institute of Phyical Art

 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. 

Game Ready

Cold therapy (cryotherapy) promotes vasoconstriction and reduces blood flow, reduces inflammation and edema (swelling), decreases muscle spasms, decreases metabolic demand, and safely relieves pain without narcotics. Cold therapy is used immediately following acute injury or surgery and as needed thereafter. 


The Maitland-Australian Approach intentionally gently provokes the patient’s actual symptoms using carefully graded osteokinematic (physiological) and arthrokinematic (accessory) passive mobilization. This approach is recognized worldwide as an efficient, safe and gentle way to evaluate and treat the orthopaedic patient to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, restore movement, and maximize function.  
  • Client Testimonials:

    Dr Anuja is a dedicated PT. I contacted her on an emergency basis as I was traveling in 2 days. She took time out to help me with my mid back issue promptly. She carefully examined me and explained my current condition and planned my treatment with me. I am thankful for her excellent skills, as I was able to travel pain free. She diligently followed up with me and made sure I continued my exercises while I was away. Thank you so much.

    • P.S., Google Reviews, October 2020
  • Going into physical therapy, I was not expecting much due to a past bad experience with physical therapy in which I was never “healed” and ended up wasting so much money on it. However, I had a very good experience with New York Plaza Physical Therapy, specifically Dr. Anuja Mathew. I feel as good as new! Not to mention, NYPPT is very personable and strives their best to ensure the quality of the sessions and focusing on your improvement! I highly recommend NYPPT to anyone! Also, they take the coronavirus very seriously and ensure that you will not have to come in contact with any other patients. All equipment is also sanitized.
