Our new physical therapy out-patient rehab office is now located in the Hamilton and Washington Heights section of Manhattan. Aside from the orthopedic and sports physical therapy services that we offer, we also perform 2D Running Gait Analysis (RGA) and soon to offer 3D Running Gait Analysis. Additionally, our physical therapy provider is a Certified Running Gait Analyst-Level 1 and 2 and is an avid runner as well.


Both types of RGA have been shown to be reliable measures to identify and assess running kinematics that affect a runner’s performance. Results of the study by Reinking et al (2018) have shown that 2D RGA has a high intra-rater and inter-rater reliability in measuring eight running kinematic variables in the sagittal plane. Moreover, A systematic review by Oliviera et al (2019) further supports the reliability of video-based 2D RGA. The authors found that 2D RGA has a high reliability in quantifying step rate among runners as well as in determining the foot strike pattern (Oliviera et al 2019). Oliviera et al (2019) highly recommends the use of 2D RGA in clinical settings based on the excellent outcomes in the studies and the ability of clinicians with varying levels of clinical experience to reliably perform 2D RGA (Oliviera et al 2019; Reinking et al 2018).

Vertetrac is an innovative device for the treatment of chronic low back pain due to lumbar disc herniation. It provides dynamic traction that is used during treatment while the patient is walking. Recent studies have shown the beneficial effects of the dynamic traction system in alleviating low back pain and improving patient outcomes. In the study by Mirovsky, Grober, Blankstein, and Stabholz (2006), use of Vertetrac has improved pain scores and increased lumbar range of motion in patients with mechanical low back pain. In Vertetrac has also been shown to have high accuracy in measuring spinal stiffness (Young et. al., 2020). Tucker (1994) also described the results of the study by Stabholtz and Gruber. In the study, patients with lumbar facet syndrome had a reduction in symptoms after using Vertetrac.

Balance Training with SoloStep

Balance Training with SoloStep

We provide the care that you need in the 

community of the Heights.

   The use of an overhead track system for balance training during physical therapy and rehabilitation has been used by many institutions. It offers many benefits for both the patient and the therapist. For patients, use of an overhead track system allows for partial body weight support thus improves patient experience during gait and balance training, increase confidence, and eliminates fall risk during rehabilitation itself. For healthcare staff members, including physical therapists, Miller, Engst, Tate, and Yassi (2005), reported that use of ceiling lifts for patient manual handling reduced patient handling injuries promoting safety among both 

patients and care staff.
