2 girls talkingMarianna’s explanation of the pelvis and tummy/core relationship was so helpful. I am willing to begin with these floor exercises. Thank you so much NAFC for this PT month article. Please keep this kind of explanation coming!

This is my first pregnancy and I had been suffering with severe back pain for over 2 months, my Midwife eventually referred me to MRPT Physical Therapy for treatment. After my 3rd treatment I am already feeling 90% better, and I’m looking forward to continuing with my weekly visits until my delivery in 3 months time.

I have been seeing Marianne for the past 2 weeks and she has really helped me understand what is going on with my body, her “magic hands” are working. She also makes me laugh!!
- Matt G., General Aches & Pains

I feel so much better. I am 4 months pregnant with my first child and my back hurts, my neck hurts…. basically everything hurts. My OBGYN suggested I go see Marianne for some visits to help me.
- Michelle A., Pre Natal Treatment

I loved the Baby Bod class! Marianne and Barbara are great teachers and it was a fun way to learn exercises I can do at home while meeting new moms at the same time. Thanks to this class I am much more aware of my posture and some “fine tuning” I can easily do on a daily basis. Marianne was always willing to answer any questions we had and is clearly passionate about helping us new moms get back in shape! Thank you!

Once postpartum, always postpartum. A year ago I had terrible pelvic pain and saw many doctors before I finally got a diagnosis of scar tissue from a traumatic birth injury 42 years before. My gynecologist referred me to Marianne, whose magic hands and extensive experience began to control the pain. Over six months, she recommended five strategies to help diminish the pain and restore me to functioning as a commuter driver. Now, I faithfully follow her suggestions with extraordinary thanks for her years of work and her smarts about pain and people.

The TMJ therapy that I have been receiving at MRPT has been more effective than I could have imagined. I am very glad that I decided to give them a chance, because I can’t even remember the last time that I was in this little pain.
- Frances Stanley, TMJ

This place was on a list of therapists given to me by my OB for persistent pregnancy pains and mobility issues, and was a 2-minute walk from my office. The appointments always start on time which is awesome when trying to schedule something in between meetings and a busy workday. Marianne, whom I presume owns the practice given the name, is knowledgeable both professionally and personally on pregnancy related ailments, and has her patient’s best interest at heart… she actually recommended that I see a chiropractor to have the Webster Technique done when my baby was still breech at 7 1 /2 months. I’ll definitely be going back sometime postpartum for sessions to help get my tummy back in shape.

“The class gave me a new perspective on correct posture. The exercises were great for working on the parts that need attention in the postpartum body.” Thanks for the great class!
- Ji, New York

Superb. I have been seeing Marianne for the last 3 weeks since I badly hurt my knee playing Volleyball. I could hardly walk. I am due to resume playing volleyball next week. Great office, superb treatment, thanks Marianne. Highly recommended.
- Julie M. , Knee Pain

I had a severe TMJ problem that was misdiagnosed for many years. I highly recommend and thank these 2 professionals who are in the process of curing my problem. The combination of my TMJ specialist dentist and a Physical Therapy practice that specializes in TMJ treatment works for me.

Best PT in the City! I just want to share my comments about a great Physical Therapist I have been going to. This is my first pregnancy and I had been suffering with severe back pain for over 2 months, my Midwife eventually referred me to MRPT Physical Therapy for treatment. After my 3rd treatment I am already feeling 90% better, and I’m looking forward to continuing with my weekly visits until my delivery in 3 months time.” Update: “Have now had 10 treatments over the last 8 weeks and still pain free and I feel so much stronger and ready for the birth. Thank you Marianne!!
- KellySH, Pre Natal Treatment

Marianne’s baby bod class was great! Although I exercised routinely after my baby was born, the muscles in my abdomen and pelvis were still very weak. The exercises that Marianne taught us were perfect because they focused on developing the core muscles that enable abdominal and pelvic strength. I noticed a substantial increase in my muscle control and tone after just a few weeks of starting the class. I would highly recommend this class to any woman who has had a child!
- Heather

While participating in Marianne’s Baby Bod classes and completing the exercise plan two times a week, I was able to go from a post-pregnancy size 8 back down to a size 4 with no additional exercise regimen. My stomach is flatter, my back pain from toting my son around is gone, and I feel stronger. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results in such a short time. Thank you, Marianne!
- Megan

I can’t thank you enough for creating the Baby Bod Program! While I love my twins and my new baby girl, having them meant a C-section, a VBAC, an episiotomy, third degree vaginal tearing and seven weeks of bed rest. I put my body through a lot and never thought I’d get it back. But I’m thrilled with the results I got after just a few weeks on your program! While the exercises are challenging, they are simple to do, easy to incorporate into my busy schedule, and most importantly, effective. Every week my belly got just a bit flatter until I could get back into my old clothes. My whole body is stronger and more stable. The best part? More energy to have fun with my kids and husband. Thanks for helping me get my life back!
- Debbie, New York

I have been in the fitness industry for about 10 years and I was amazed that these people were on the same page as I was in other areas of physical well being and not only their specific field. I personally have a hard time when it comes to admitting that I need help and the staff at MRPT were very comforting and made it easy for me to express the problems I was having. I have a knee injury. I would like to thank the staff for all their help! I would recommend them to family and friends!

I injured my shoulder playing tennis in November and my doctor prescribed Physical Therapy. I saw Marianne (who is the owner of MRPT) and after the very first session, which lasted about an hour, felt so much better and I could move my shoulder so much easier. She accomplished more in that first session that the other therapist had done in 10 sessions. I thought all Physical Therapists did the same thing but they do not. Thanks Marianne you are really helping me.

I had been suffering with severe neck pain for many years and had various tests and therapy but the pain always seemed to return. My latest Doctor told me that I needed further Therapy and I should see MRPT Physical Therapy since he regarded them as the best in the City. Wow what a difference! They didn’t just look at my neck pain but concentrated on my entire body, it seams the problem with my neck was caused from me having bad posture especially at work and weak core muscles (and I thought I just had a neck problem). 3 months later after a series of treatments, sticking to their detailed home exercise and strengthening program and changing how my desk is organized at work I have never been so pain free. Thank you to Marianne and her staff for all your help and guidance. Truly Grateful!

I was very satisfied with the way I was treated at the MRPT clinic in Manhattan. The inside of the building is very pleasant, and everyone who I spoke to was very kind to me. I know that I’ll be very comfortable throughout my treatment here.
- Marsha Mcclurg, Orthopedic Physical Therapy

I chose MRPT after looking at several of the physical therapy clinics around Manhattan. I liked the facilities and the physical therapists here a lot more than the other places that I tried out. I’m very satisfied with the treatment that I’ve been getting since I joined as well.
- Stephen Wanda , Orthopedic Physical Therapy

My wife and I chose MRPT to help prep for the pregnancy. We are very glad that we spoke to them early, because they have just been a ton of help. My wife tells me that she is feeling almost no discomfort anymore. The physical therapists at the Manhattan office have always been available when we needed new advice.
- Peter Burrell, Pre Natal Treatment

MRPT made me feel much better after I had my hip surgery. They were able to resolve the pain that I was feeling very quickly, and we worked on developing my mobility afterward. I like the team that I worked with a lot, and I would recommend them to friends.
- Brooke Kershaw, Post Surgery

What a difference!! I injured my shoulder playing tennis in November and my doctor prescribed Physical Therapy. Since there was a PT in my local New York Sports Club I decided to go to them for treatment. It was convenient since I thought I could do my work outs and get some treatment at the same time. After a month of treatment I felt no better and I didn’t think they really knew what they were doing since all I ever seem to do was exercises, there was limited hands on treatment One of my co-workers said that she had been going to MRPT Physical Therapy for treatment and was very happy so I thought I would give them a try. It was like night and day I saw Marianne (who is the owner of MRPT) and after the very first session, which lasted about an hour, felt so much better and I could move my shoulder so much easier. She accomplished more in that first session that the other therapist had done in 10 sessions. I’m now just over 3 weeks into my treatment and am feeling stronger and stronger and hopefully will be playing tennis again fairly shortly I thought all Physical Therapists did the same thing but they do not. Thanks Marianne you are really helping me.
- Steveko528, Shoulder Pain

MRPT gave my dad a lot of help when he needed both his hips and his knee replaced. Walking was a struggle for him. He was up and moving very fast after we started the treatments though. He’s puttering around like he always does no, and I’m very grateful for their help.

They cured my Neck Pain. I had been suffering with severe neck pain for many years and had various tests and therapy but the pain always seemed to return. My latest Doctor told me that I needed further Therapy and I should see MRPT Physical Therapy since he regarded them as the best in the City. So I booked an appointment. Wow what a difference! They didn’t just look at my neck pain but concentrated on my entire body, it seams the problem with my neck was caused from me having bad posture especially at work and weak core muscles (and I thought I just had a neck problem) 3 months later after a series of treatments, sticking to their detailed home exercise and strengthening program and changing how my desk is organized at work I have never been so pain free. Thank you to Marianne and her staff for all your help and guidance. Truly Grateful!

Great Customer service from the start. Even on the phone. Liked the people who worked at the facility. Everyone was extremely friendly. I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge that the employees here had. I have been in the fitness industry for about 10 years and I was amazed that these people were on the same page as I was in other areas of physical well being and not only their specific field. I personally have a hard time when it comes to admitting that I need help and the staff at MRPT were very comforting and made it easy for me to express the problems I was having. I have a knee injury. I would like to thank the staff for all their help! I would recommend them to family and friends!
- Matt Gursky , Knee Pain

I used MRPT when I was recovering from a femur fracture about a year back. They were much better than the previous couple of places that my orthopedist had recommended. You get 1 on 1 interaction for 40 mins or so – none of the usual 2 min conversation/exercise direction while you wait for the doc to do rounds on the 5 other people he’s simultaneously catering to – which was the norm at the other 2 places I had been to.
- S.K., Post Surgery

I had my 3rd knee surgery and am finally doing well because I finally found a great physical therapist, Carola at MRPT. She was the first the therapist who really knew what my underlying issue was, which turned out to be a weak hip. She literally taught me how to walk again and my knee pain has substantially been reduced.
- Lisa L. , Knee Pain

My profession as a personal trainer has lead to an increase tendency for me to hurt my back when I workout with my clients. I became frustrated after trying several other core programs to strengthen my body because I still had back pain. A friend of mine told me about the MRPT CORE SOLUTION! and suggested I go for a few physical therapy treatments. After my first visit I learned that I was “over strengthening” some of my muscles, causing muscle imbalances. I had to actually stop several exercises, including Pilates and strengthening machines. I learned to use my two muscle systems more efficiently and am no longer in pain. I also started using several of these exercises with my clients and they are all doing great!
- Ben T., Bronx, N.Y.(Back Pain)

I have tried several different CORE programs and always landed up injured within a short period of time, until I found this program. After doing the MRPT CORE SOLUTION! for six weeks I no longer feel the typical aches and pains that I lived with for the past fifteen years.
- Bernard S., Westchester, NY(General Aches & Pains)

I have always had bad posture and did not know how to change it. I have tried several different exercise classes, including Pilates, Yoga and Ti-Chi. Nothing worked, until I started this program. The first thing I learned was not to “stand up straight” as I was taught by my mother. I also found out that since I am small, I have been forced to sit on the edge of my chair at work, which was the main cause of my back and neck pain. The pain even interrupted my sleep for the past five years. I am now able to get a full night’s sleep and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning.
