Neurological Physical Therapy
Located in Manhattan's Union Square, NYC
At James Fowler Physical Therapy, we know your experience with neurological disease or injury is unique to you. That is why we begin your care with an hour-long assessment by a skilled physical therapist (PT).
James Fowler Physical Therapy’s Neurological Physical Therapy Program is a specialized physical therapy program focused on helping you maintain or regain your mobility after neurological events and diseases. On your first day of therapy you will be examined by a physical therapist to determine your level of motor control, sensation, coordination, balance, walking, and more. The physical therapist will then develop a specialized program based on your needs to help you achieve your mobility goals. Throughout your program you will work with your therapist as well as experienced athletic trainers during PT sessions at the James Fowler Physical Therapy clinic.
The clinic includes private treatment rooms, a calming atmosphere, and all the equipment needed to help you in your journey with neurological injury or disease.
