The Ultimate Difference

Ultimate Physical Therapy New YorkUltimate Physical Therapy is a privately owned physical therapy, myofascial release and massage treatment center, and the combination of these professions is what makes us unique. If we determine certain patients can benefit from massage therapy, we incorporate this approach into their treatment plan in order to assist in their rehabilitation.

We’ve been working in physical therapy, serving Westchester residents since 1990. When we decided to open our own facility in September 2002, our goal was to offer quality care at a personalized and attentive atmosphere. Our clients tell us we have succeeded. Unlike some physical therapy practices, we focus on the individual and have developed a reputation for creative approaches to meeting patient needs.
