General Info

The ability to have one-on-one care in a private setting with state-of-the-art equipment, by an exceptional physical therapy team, while utilizing your insurance plan...Why wouldn't you upgrade your care to Function Physical Therapy? A Premier Facility: We are the premier physical therapy facility in New York City, specializing in sports and orthopedics. Unlike most physical therapy clinics, we care about your comfort and privacy. Our facility and treatment rooms are designed to maximize your comfort, privacy, and results. In addition, we have access to state-of-the-art biomechanical and motion capture testing necessary for analyzing high velocity motion in sport. Why settle for semi-private or non-private therapy? One-On-One Care: Here at Dr Perna's Office all treatments are one-on-one. Unlike 99.9% of other physical therapy facilities, we do not utilize assistants or aides with your care. That means from the time your treatment starts, to the end, you are seeing a professional physical therapist. Other facilities schedule patients every 20-30 minutes with a physical therapist. In addition, our facility will never pass patients off from therapist to therapist. Why not put your recovery in the hands of a licensed professional? Dr Perna's is an in-network provider of many insurance plans. Just a small sample of these insurances includes Blue Cross, WGA, SAG, DGA, Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, United, and HealthNet. In addition, to ensure full access to our exceptional services our facility accepts Medicare and Workers' Compensation patients. This guarantees that our patients will get the full benefit out of their insurance plans. Do not be mislead by other facilities stating that they \"accept\"all insurances, this does not mean that facility is in-network with your insurance carrier. Why pay large out-of-pocket fees at a sub-par facility? Exceptional Therapists: Here at Dr Perna's we only hire the most experienced and versed therapists. We believe that it takes years of experience to comprehend the complexity of the body and the course of injuries. As a team, we utilize our experience, current medical research, and our expertise to individualize your rehabilitation care to your needs. Our professional team has been in the field of physical therapy for many years, working with world renowned physicians, and is dedicated to you receiving the best physical therapy results. You deserve the best personalized care.

    The physical therapy work I received from Back and Body Medical was outstanding. The staff is incredibly nice and accommodating. I worked with them twice for two separate injuries over the past 3-years, both with great success!

  • Can't go wrong

    Been to many chiropractors/physical therapy places. This tops all. Dr. Perna listens. Dr. Sivendra is knowledgeable, and is a gentleman.

    The first day I was there I was in excruciating pain. After Dr. Perna examined me and explained my problem I also saw the medical doctor there. I'm not a pill person, but good to know that I have the option if needed. The PT was considerate. I was there for a while but I really appreciated that they took their time with me. Marlene, the front desk lady is a sweetheart, and makes you feel at home. I am all better now, and discharged from care, but if I need to, I know where to go back.

  • The way a PT center should be

    I had been going to a PT facility by my residence for about a year and my back was not getting better. When I came to Back and Body I was told in detail what would be my treatment. The wait time is almost non existent. I would highly recommend.

  • I'm All Better!!!!

    I went to Back and Body Medical because I had a shoulder injury. Dr Perna was very professional and caring. I had never been to a PT before and was a little skeptical of going but I needed to know what was going on with my shoulder. I went in and was referred to have an MRI. The office that he sent me to was not far from his office and they were equal in their professionalism. After 3 months of treatment I felt as though I was back in high school and playing baseball. I would definitely recommend Dr. Perna and his team at Back and Body Medical. Thank you Dr. Perna.

  • 3-in-1 service.

    I hurt my back the other day and needed to see a doctor right away. After google through different PT and chiropractice in the midtown area, I found this place. It has excellant reviews, and doctor on site. What can I ask for? 3 specialties in one. I made an appointment right away. People at the front desk told me they accept and take my insurance. Awesome! Upon arriving, the receptionist was very attentative, so are the doctors and PT. They took xrays of my back and did some therapy on me. I felt great afterward. Thank you.

  • Love this place
    Sandra Soroka

    By far the best PT office in the city. It's conveniently located in midtown right by the train and my office. I am unfortunately a huge clutz so I've been going there for 1.5 years. First I broke my wrist, then had some shoulder problems because it was my writing hand and I was modifying how I wrote, then, I broke BOTH my ankles while on vacation. They've been treating me great. The staff is amazing. I've gotten to know pretty much all of them since I am there several times a week for so long. The office staff is very knowledgable and nice, which I find to be a rarity in medical offices. Its a long healing process when you bust both your feet, and having a relaxed friendly environment, makes the visit enjoyable when I see so many smiling faces, despite the fact I keep breaking bones.

  • Great Place Friendly Staff

    The staff is all very pleasant. You rarely wait more than 5 minutes to see someone. Usually you go right in.
    What I really like is that they spend more than 10 seconds on you.. Most chiropractors that I've been to have you in and out in 10 minutes or so. They seem to take their time with you. Always a nice experience.

  • Great one on one treatment

    The Doctors and the therapists treat you more than a customer, more like a one on one sessions ( The staff is also super friendly and caring to your needs) and they really do care for your well-being. I never got the excellent treatment anywhere else and I have been to a few chiropactors. I definitley recommend Back and Body Medical.

  • I've got 99 Problems but my Back ain't one!
    Lee Albertson III

    This practice has been talked about by my work associates for years and as I have not had any back issues, did not need to know if they were right or wrong. Let me tell you, they are 100% right! From the instant I reached out to the practice, nothing but courteous interaction and easy to work with. Dr. Perna was straight forward as we worked through my issues (L4/L5). The physical therapy is thorough and comprehensive for my specific issues and I am almost 100% better, but felt immediately better after my first visit. Can not speak more highly of the work they do!

  • Amazing Service...

    I have been using Back & Body Medical for several years now for lower back and shoulder issues that show up from time to time. I give this office high ratings - very professional, Dr. Perna and his staff explain things to you in words you can understand, not medical gibberish. I have never had an issue getting an appointment and am always taken on time. And...I walk out feeling much better than when I walked in.

    If you are having back or body issues - I highly recommend using Back & Body Medical. Or at least calling them and giving them a try.
