Brett, Pro Kickboxer

Danny, Pro Skateboarder
Danny was in a bad accident that left him with two broken legs and subsequent surgeries in an attempt to merely get him to walk again. It did not seem likely Danny would ever return to skateboarding, but through hard work and determination he has returned to professional skateboarding and further reports that he is able to do all his old tricks without any pain or fear.
Watch the video to see Danny's amazing story.
Christian, Pro Soccer Player
Christian entered our office following surgery after dealing with chronic knee pain for several years - a common issue with athletes competing in sports with frequent changes of direction. By focusing on rehab and performance Christian was able to concur his old pain and get back to what he was truly passionate about.
Christian is currently captain for the Austrian national soccer team and reports that he's playing even better than before, including a terrific display for his club team in the UEFA Champions League. His improved agility and mobility has allowed him to maneuver around opponents more efficiently. Watch the video to learn how we got Christian back in the game.
Susan, Pro Boxer
When we first met Susan, she was an amateur boxer complaining of lingering pain in her hip. As a result Susan was unable to generate torque and power which was significantly impacting her abilities as a boxer. Through her individualized treatment plan, Susan was able to return to boxing full-time and eventually turn pro. She continues to fight professionally and is a teacher at a local Muay Thai gym in downtown NYC.
Watch the video to find out more about how we helped Susan continue her professional goals and improve her longevity so she could continue to compete and pass along her knowledge and expertise to younger fighters.
Quotes from Patients
Vikash has been more than I could have asked for, helping me first recover from my basketball related ACL surgery, and secondly helping me transition back into athletic shape. He is very knowledgeable, easy to work with and pushes me to push myself. Highly recommended.
I came to Perfect Stride for shoulder rehabilitation after spending 3 months in a much larger practice where I was one of many patients sharing an appointment time with one physical therapist. I found that the rate of my progress and recovery sped up greatly when I came to Perfect Stride, where I had one on one physical therapy for an entire appointment. I found I was able to interact more with my physical therapist and be more involved with the process, instead of simply going through the motions. The staff is knowledgeable, dedicated, and friendly.
When I started to work with Dan I had been in pain for an entire year and was both frustrated and demoralized - I was afraid I would never get better and would have to give up running. Dan was extremely patient with my frustrations and kept me positive throughout the entire process. After following his treatment regimen and keeping up with preventative exercises, I am back to running pain free and recently completed my second triathlon. Thank you Dan!
I have received treatment from Dan off and on for four years for different, unrelated injuries and I can say that he is a one-of-a-kind physical therapist. He understands my needs as an athlete and an active person and adjusts his treatment accordingly, pushing me to work harder and also noticing when I might need a break. Dan goes above and beyond for his patients as well, brushing up on academic and professional knowledge to treat a specific injury and always looking for the missing piece that might hold back your recovery. He actively listens to a patient, and uses his skills as a troubleshooter and problem-solver to enhance therapy so that you get the most out of it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dan to any of my friends or family.
