Our Services

Steve Kravitz Physical Therapy provides a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare in order to ensure the highest quality of care for our patients. Treatments are uniquely tailored to your specific needs and will primarily be hands-on manual therapy using the following techniques to restore optimum health.


CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy aka Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle, hands on approach to release tensions in the soft tissue that surround the central nervous system to relieve pain as well as improve health and mobility. CranioSacral Therapy originated from the Osteopathic tradition but is used today as an effective method of Physical Therapy to treat pain and create agility for individuals seeking an active lifestyle.

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation is based on osteopathic principles and focuses on locating and resolving abnormal tension (s) of connective tissue that can link the organs of the body to various regions of tightness in the musculoskeletal system.

Nerve Mobilization

Nerve mobilization is a type of nerve therapy that aims to specifically locate and treat fixations of nerves throughout the body by applying gentle, precise pressure to the nerve in order to glide or floss it through the nerve sheath for maximum pain relief and optimum function.

 

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is an Osteopathic based therapy utilizing gentle stretches of the connective tissue, or fascia, to release abnormal tissue tensions. Myofascial Release is effective at restoring motion and provides acute and chronic pain relief.

Pediatric Therapy

Pediatric Therapy is the treatment of individuals from birth to age eighteen and is a combination of traditional physical therapy techniques blended with appropriate manual therapies to ensure a gentle, non-invasive well-rounded approach to your child’s wellness.

What Our Patients Say

 

"Steve's work is amazing. I went to Steve because of a sharp pain under my shoulder blade. He didn't try to "crack my back", adjust my spine or sell me vitamins on the way out. What he did was find the source of the pain and fix it...in a single visit I felt 100% better when I left. My business partner and his wife now are Steve loyalists, too. Steve is a smart, caring, well trained, compassionate practitioner. I would send my grandma."

-Brett B


"Steve's knowledge of the physical body is vast and his familiarity with treatment methodologies is extensive. I have no doubt that Steve and his magic hands would be beneficial to anyone suffering from pain or looking for balance"

-Almost P

"Absolutely phenomenal. Kind, intuitive, grounded, wonderfully talented and extremely knowledgeable. He is the rare gem; the practitioner who when you visit you can completely trust and who inspires confidence. He has the ability to read your physical and energetic symptoms but also has a giant toolbox of different modalities which he seamlessly uses. When I left, I felt a tranquility and relief from pain that stayed with me for days."

-Philo P.


"If you are lucky enough to be coming across Steve Kravitz, run, don’t walk to see him. I have been seeing Steve regularly for going on two years and he is the only therapist I have found that effectively manages my chronic neck pain, TMJ, headache, fatigue, sleep and stress related symptoms. After years of trying other types of therapies like acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, shiatsu, osteopaths, and more, I can confidently say that his skill set is unique. I could not recommend anyone more highly than Steve Kravitz, he has hugely improved my quality of life."
