Suspension Therapy

Introducing Suspension Rehabilitation Therapy Powered By Redcord

The latest treatment intervention that gets results fast without medication, surgery or boring physical therapy sessions. Introducing Suspension Rehabilitation Therapy powered by Redcord, only available at Manhattan Physical Therapy here in New York City.

Are you living life pain free?

Research has shown that the key to be pain free is eating healthy, regular exercise, and adequate rest. Studies have also shown that the typical office worker is deficient on 2 out of 3 on the above topics.

In the Late 1980′s, a Norwegian carpenter discovered what is known today as Redcord.

In the last 12 months, Dr. Joseph Simon, has been on endless pursuit to bring this amazing equipment and treatment approach to the people of New York City and the entire New York Metro Area. Through his professional knowledge, Dr. Simon knew that if he was able to figure out a way to decrease a patient’s natural protection response (also known as muscle guarding), down he would be able to get to the injured areas faster with less pain production.

“What would happen if I could just have someone hold this body part, so it’s completely relaxed? I’d just need another set of hands!”

This is exactly what Redcord has been able to do for the therapists at Manhattan Physical Therapy. “It’s almost like having an extra pair of hands.”

Why is it this is so important to you as a patient?

The average patient (or should I say New Yorker) has a difficult time relaxing. During a typical session, we find ourselves stating to the patient “just relax” over a hundred times. The typical response is “I don’t know how”. So, what if we could suspend parts of the body that needed to be worked on, hence relaxing your limbs, spine and joints? The results of RedCord are highly encouraging. But, there is a considerable segment of physicians and other healthcare practitioners that do not truly understand the benefits of physical therapy, fitness and RedCord. In short, the people that have used the Redcord Treatment here at Manhattan Physical Therapy, were often able to achieve greater results, ten times (10 x) faster and more effective than traditional physical therapy and wellness alternatives.


Neck & Back

With the ability to suspend the entire body we are able to shut down the larger muscle groups that typically guard when you are in pain and work on the deep stabilizers to help achieve a higher level of proprioception.


Foot & Ankle

A diagnosis such as plantar faciitis, is still treated manually, but to achieve faster results, we use Redcord to help build the strength in the fascia of your lower extremities (hip, knee and ankle).


Hip & Knee

Most post surgical rehab is limited to non-weight bearing exercises. In a typical rehab center, the results will be limited due to your speed of healing. We can speed that up by 10x with exercises in non-weight bearing positions.


Shoulder, Elbow & Wrist

Surprisingly, an injury to any of these body parts creates severe muscle imbalances in your shoulder girdle and mid-back. Correcting these imbalances and strengthening the anatomical chain has been proven to regain range of motion and decrease pain.


Finally, Break Those Bad Habits

When we are in pain, the body will adapt and figure out a way to get you through the day. These “habits” that we form, can last months to years, usually, the #1 reason why an injury returns after a few months. Let’s break those bad habits, once and for all.
