EMH Physical Therapy is optimized for your comfort along your healing journey. When you arrive, you'll be welcomed with calming music, fragrant aromatherapy of essential oils and our warm, expert office staff in our light filled reception area. Our spacious nature-designed treatment rooms affords full privacy during your individualized session with your DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy). Our gym is in a light filled greenhouse glass space with a beautiful NYC skyline view. We feature the new Pilates equipment, Guillotine Tower, that is excellent for exercising the deep pelvic/hip/core muscles.
Our DPT Staff is well versed in their professional knowledge of pelvic and orthopedic therapies and all have a gentle, caring, healing energy. We listen to you, take time to educate and answer questions and tailor your treatment program every step of the way for your optimum healing and function.
At EMH Physical Therapy, you will be seen by the same licensed DPT at the Initial Evaluation (one hour) and at each follow up treatment session ( 45+ minutes). Your DPT is with you and only you during your session. Many traditional practices have staff PT’s treating 3 to 4 patients simultaneously in an open gym like setting and treatments can be administered by non licensed Aides or licensed PT Assistants. Not at our practice. Having the same DPT overseeing your care from start to successful discharge, facilitates trust and improves your DPT to adjust treatment as you change so you achieve your goals more efficiently. All patients are closely monitored by the President of the practice, Evelyn Hecht, PT, ATC, who actively guides her staff so you receive the best treatment possible.
The Initial Evaluation is time set aside so you and your licensed DPT can discuss, learn, share information, do tests and measurements, hear treatment solutions and plan for your full recovery. It includes the following: History, Education, Physical Examination, Discussion of Findings, Instruction in Relief Technique, Scheduling Follow up Treatments. See below following our Conditions Treated for details of Initial Evaluation Steps.
PFD is a term used to describe pain and disruption of bladder, bowel &/or sexual function due to restrictions of the muscles and nerves of the pelvis.
The pelvis is a bowl-shaped bony structure which holds the organs of digestion, elimination (bladder & bowel) and sexual function. The pelvic floor muscles (PFM) are located at bottom of the bowl, attaching like a hammock from the front pubis to the back coccyx bones. The PFM supports the viscera, maintains continence (bladder and fecal), assists in core/trunk stability and enhances sexual function. The pudendal nerve and its branches also travel through the PFM.
