Quality care and real compassion come together at our office. 

Yonkers is a city in New York State and is affectionately called “the city of hills” due to the range of hills. As of the 2020 United States Census Yonkers’ population stood at 211,596. 

The city has a lot to offer and a lot going on. What we appreciate most is the diverse makeup of the population. Many people have lived in Yonkers all their lives, and others move to the city for various reasons – everyone has a story to tell. At some point, due to age or accident, they all need some help with minor or major injury recovery.

Direct Physical Therapy office Yonkers

From Post-surgery to Neck or Back Pain in Yonkers - We Are Your Number One Choice for Physical Therapy. 

Physical Therapy can be a broad term that involves a lot of different treatments to help a variety of conditions. We treat many conditions that prevent people from going about their lives, routines, and activities. Some PT conditions we help patients with are hip or knee replacement, arthritis, sports injuries, and gait/walking.

At Direct PT, our approach to physical therapy extends beyond just treating symptoms; we aim to understand and address the root cause of your discomfort. Our team specializes in a range of innovative therapies, including manual therapy, exercise rehabilitation, and pain management techniques. Whether it’s improving mobility post-hip or knee replacement, managing the chronic pain of arthritis, recovering from sports-related injuries, or enhancing gait and walking abilities, our tailored programs are designed to meet your unique needs.

What are the Key Traits of a Top Physical Therapy Office?

At Direct PT, we often encounter patients curious about what truly distinguishes a top-notch physical therapy office from the rest. It’s a multifaceted answer, as several key aspects make a physical therapy office exceptional. Here’s what we believe matters most, based on frequent feedback from our patients:

  • Quality of Physical Therapists: The heart of any physical therapy office lies in the quality of its therapists. At Direct PT, our therapists are highly skilled and knowledgeable, deeply caring and understanding. We strive to empathize with each patient’s journey, ensuring a personalized approach to recovery.
  • Ownership and Management Philosophy: We believe in treating our patients as individuals, not just as numbers or sources of revenue. As founders and therapists of Direct PT, we imbue our practice with a rare level of expertise and attention in the industry. This approach ensures that every patient feels valued and receives the highest standard of care.
  • Proximity and Accessibility: For those living or working in Yonkers, particularly in Southeast Yonkers, our office’s location is ideally suited to maintain regular PT appointments. We understand that ease of access is crucial for consistent therapy, which is why our facility is designed to be easily accessible, with no stairs or elevators to navigate.
  • State-of-the-art equipment: The efficacy of physical therapy is significantly enhanced by the quality of the equipment used. At Direct PT, we are committed to continuously updating our equipment to the latest standards. This ensures our patients have the best tools to aid in their strength-building and mobility improvement.
  • Comprehensive Insurance Acceptance: We firmly believe that quality physical therapy should be accessible to everyone. That’s why our Yonkers office accepts a wide range of insurance providers, accommodating nearly ten options to ensure our services are affordable and within reach for our patients.

Rating 5.0

Ashley and Laura at Direct PT have been absolutely fantastic with helping me recover from two separate knee surgeries in the past two years. They are both super friendly and very attentive with their patients’ needs. I have progressed very nicely with my recovery under their care and highly recommended them to anyone in need of physical therapy.

Rating 5.0

I highly recommend Direct PT, I found them to be professional and courteous…always with a smile. Their aids and staff are always ready with a helping hand.  They all are truly awesome. They got me back walking after my revision knee surgery and gave me my quality of life back. I can not express how thankful I am for everything.
