  • We are dedicated practitioners with a passion for the profession and a comprehensive, holistic approach to treatment and healing. We treat each patient as an individual and treat the whole person, with a plan of care designed to meet the patient’s set goals for health, functionality and a return to work, tasks and activities. We network with a team of physicians, chiropractors, acupuncturists and massage therapists in order to provide guidance to other modalities that may be effective in the patients’ care.

Charitable Work of ActiveCare Physical Therapy

Congratulations to ActiveCare Physical Therapy for winning the Physical Therapy Practice Challenge at the NYC Arthritis Walk 2012!  We were the top in fundraising and in members that represented our PT practice in this fundraiser.  We were honored with a booth (TENT #12) at the event and Karena was asked to lead the official warm-up and stretch right before the walk began.

We had an official 34 people walking for our team!  We supported our patients, friends and family who have been diagnosed with arthritis (Karena was diagnosed at 35 years of age) as well as the research and funding for this disease.

You can still make a contribution up through the end of July at www.newyorkaw.kintera.org and click on Donate to a Team and then Join a Team.  Your donation will be linked to our Team ActiveCare PT name and you can help make a difference.
