Under the governance of Dr. Charlie Weingroff, DPT and care of Dr. Bo Babenko, DPT, Halevy Life offers unparalleled outcome-focused patient care, using the most advanced methodologies and practices, at our flagship location on the border of Midtown East and the Upper East Side.
We provide only personally tailored evidence-based physical therapy strategies that are executed one-on-one with highly qualified state licensed physical therapists. (We do not use aides, nor do we waste your time with the “factory approach” employed by most physical therapy practices, with therapists seeing multiple patients simultaneously, “treating” them with ice, heat, ultrasound, etc.)
Our therapists use a wide range of methods, including ART (Active Release Therapy), Graston Technique, FRC (Functional Range Conditioning), DNS Movement Principles (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization training), and more.
We treat a wide variety of orthopedic and musculoskeletal injuries, ranging from upper and lower back pain, joint pain (i.e. knee, ankle, hip, etc.), sprains and strains, and post-surgical recovery.
Due to the high level of care and expertise we provide, we do not bill in-network insurance but can provide a receipt to submit towards your out-of-network insurance coverage.
