Can my problems benefit from pain management?

It’s very likely they can. Pain management at Manhattan Physical Therapy addresses various conditions and disorders, including but not limited to:


Muscle tension in your shoulders and neck, often caused by stress, can produce headaches. Other headaches, such as migraines, may have no apparent cause.

Joint pain

Arthritis, damaged cartilage, bursitis, joint impingement, and tendonitis commonly cause joint pain. You may also face shoulder issues such as a rotator cuff injury, joint instability, or frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis). The team can also help you diagnose knee pain.

Neck and back pain

Manhattan Physical Therapy has excellent success treating neck and back pain, including cases caused by strains, degenerative disc disease, piriformis syndrome, spondylolisthesis, or whiplash.

What do pain management treatments involve?

Treatment plans at Manhattan Physical Therapy far outshine traditional physical therapy. 

Instead of placing patients on static equipment to exercise without proper supervision, the team employs a hands-on, integrative approach centered on the prestigious Redcord® suspension therapy program. You’re guided through every step by fully licensed physical therapists, not aides or assistants. 

Every team member is certified in:

  • Redcord® Neuromuscular Activation Therapy
  • Myofascial release
  • Sports conditioning and functional sports medicine
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Manual techniques

Your individual treatment plan varies depending on the root cause of your pain and how much it impacts your life. The team may utilize:


This treatment aims to remove obstacles so your body can begin effective healing. The team takes an orthopedic approach to acupuncture, looking for areas of tightness, known as trigger points, in your body so they can release this tension where you most need it.

Manual techniques

Manual techniques, including proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) and joint and soft tissue mobilization, focus on stretching and strengthening your muscles.

Can suspension therapy assist my pain management?

Redcord suspension therapy helps patients who have a variety of conditions, from head to toe. Among other things, it can address:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Shin splints
  • Ankle sprains
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Herniated and slipped discs

This treatment offers fast and effective pain relief, often after only one visit. Patients can return for a free follow-up visit if one session doesn’t quite fulfill their desired results. This treatment is suitable for most patients since it’s medication-free and noninvasive.
