Dr Swapnali Shinde | Best physical therapist in lower manhattan for providing pain relief and physical rehabilitation using graston technique and active release techniques
At Living Well Medical in the SoHo/TriBeCa area of Lower Manhattan, our physical therapist, Swapnali Shinde, DPT, works hand-in-hand with patients looking to rehabilitate from an injury, surgery or other issue. Physical therapy helps patients regain strength, flexibility and joint function, and for every patient who comes in to see us, Dr. Shinde makes a custom treatment plan that is especially intended for you and your needs.

Although often associated with recovery from orthopedic surgery like joint replacement, physical therapy is actually a very broad specialty that can treat anything from muscle weakness to spinal dysfunctions like disc herniation. Often by mobilizing joints, range of motion and strength are restored concurrently, but strength training will often be included for added stability. Within physical therapy, there are also various sub-specialties that cater to specific patient groups. These include geriatric, pediatric, orthopedic, cardiopulmonary and neurological rehabilitation.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "They're funny, smart, and professional. I actually found his office through Google reviews when I had some back issues after my move to NYC, and am incredibly grateful I did. I can't recommend Dr. Sho and his team enough."
