TESTIMONIALS

I went to Bounce Back PT for a herniated disc, and had the good fortune to work regularly with both Paul. The activities I was working toward getting back to were not typical of a lot of Manhattan clients—horseback riding and kayaking—but both Paul and the therapists worked tirelessly to come up with creative and challenging sport-specific training methods to get me back to an active lifestyle. I feel like together, as a team (and they felt very much like my team who were terrifically supportive) we dodged a bullet as I was able to return to my activities pain-free, as well as leave armed with an at-home regime that keeps me from re-injuring myself. The blend of completely personal attention and intensive focus, as well as an easy demeanor and great sense of humor, made sessions that were not always physically comfortable a pleasure anyway. I initially chose Bounce Back because they were close to my office. I had no friends in PT to make recommendations, so what did I know? I can honestly say that if I needed to go back to physical therapy, and they moved across town, to another borough, or somewhere much less convenient, I would definitely travel to get to them instead of going to anybody else. -- Andrew M.

I had a good feeling about Bounce Back Physical Therapy – a young, energetic practice with young, energetic owner-therapists – even before I walked through its doors.  When I made my appointment, I learned that my therapist, Paul Evora, was a 12-time marathoner; my injury, a partially torn Achilles tendon, was sustained while running and my goal was to get back on the road as soon as possible, a goal that I knew Paul would understand.  He developed a program of stretching, balancing and strengthening that not only helped my torn Achilles heal but made me more flexible than I was before the injury.  He was patient and tough when he needed to be (especially when I was chomping at the bit to get back on the road prematurely).  Five weeks later, I was running almost at my old pace and feeling no pain.  I can’t say that I miss my sessions, but I felt very comfortable in the funky-but-friendly space in the Chelsea warehouse district.  Every patient will have different goals and timetables, but for me, Bounce Back certainly lived up to its name. -- Rob H.

Bounce Back physical therapy was a pleasure. My road to recovery was paved by a gem of a physical therapist named Kyoko. I was very lucky to be referred to Bounce Back by my physician. The environment is intimate and extremely personalized. The treatments were delightfully professional, collaborative and challenging. My eight weeks of therapy took me from severe lower back and sciatic pain down my leg to being productive, pain free, and medication free!! Thank you Kyoko for your knowledge, patience, and humor in making my experience at Bounce Back physical therapy a positive life changing / mending adventure. -- Derek L. R.N. B.S.N

I had never had to go to physical therapy before and did not know exactly what to expect. In going to Bounce Back Physical Therapy, I was so relieved to find the staff there so pleasant, caring and knowledgeable --Stacy K. Mar

Caring, competent, compassionate:  these are words that describe Bounce Back Physical Therapy.  Honestly speaking, I can be a crotchety patient, not very easily satisfied when it comes to health care professionals – but I found myself very impressed by the very professional, competent and compassionate treatment I found at Bounce Back.  I had a rather severe (grade 3) MCL injury and was thrown for a loop by the trauma.  But the consistently excellent and focused treatment I received at Bounce Back gave me confidence and helped me to heal well – and also gave me tools to do self-care. And an added bonus: Bounce Back not only has wonderful therapists, it is located in a wonderful building in Chelsea, full of art galleries, adding and aesthetic dimension to the healing ambience.  I highly recommend Bounce Back. - Pat Duffy, author of “Blue Cats and Chartreuse Kittens”

Paul Evora was recommended to me by a fellow rock-climber who sustained injuries to his tendons and lower back.  I was very impressed by the professionalism and the genuine support from Paul given that my sports injury was not a traditional "East Coast" type - compression fracture of L4-L5 from a surfing accident.  Paul made sure we came up with an exercise, strengthening and stretching routine that in a matter of a few months (given, of course, a certain level of commitment from the patient - myself) allowed me to get back in the water and surf again virtually pain free. I think the fact that Paul is an active person himself allows him to "walk in the shoes" of the patient and solve his/her problems as if they were his own: what would I do if I wanted to be active and were restricted in this way? I really think that such personalized approach makes a huge difference in the patient's recovery.  -- Katya M.

I would highly recommend the team at Bounce Back for any kind of physical therapy.   I found my sessions and training to be intimate, manageable, pleasant and extremely beneficial in the long term.  I made great progress without realizing it and when I finished my sessions, I was left with a tailored routine that I could accomplish on my own schedule without a lot of time or stress.   Totally worthwhile! -- C.K.

I am writing to recommend Bounce Back Physical Therapy located at 511 W 25th St, NYC.  I have been going to them (in their former life at the Chelsea Piers sports medicine clinic (part of NY Presbyterian) for the better part of three years.  They, especially Paul, have singlehandedly forestalled me from having extensive knee and hip surgery which has been recommended to me over the years.  While I may not look it, I am extremely active, swimming 2 miles weekly, doing yoga and cardio/weight workouts to the tune of 6 times weekly.  Part of it is to relieve stress, the other, on Paul's recommendation, is to prevent further injury to my knee/hip.  And he has been very successful.  Their PT practice has also treated a number of other DEA agents and support staff.  I can only sing their praises.   ---Camille C.
