CONDITIONS WE TREAT

Care for every body

For over 17 years Beyond Basics has been dedicated to comprehensive care for pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction in all people, including children. When we first started, fewer than a handful of therapists around the world were engaged in pelvic floor PT—and in a limited way. Today we are one of the few practices globally that has bridged the gap between the pelvic region and the rest of the body to help heal the whole person. 

Through the broad experience of our physical therapists and the range of advanced certifications they’ve earned, we can help you heal no matter where pain and dysfunction are present in your body.

“I constantly felt the need to go to the bathroom. I could not use tampons. Sex was incredibly painful. After many dead-end visits to various doctors and trying medication, only Beyond Basics has finally given me a sense of what a normal life is.”

“I had frequency of urination up to three times per hour. My pain and symptoms were so bad they disrupted work, my social life, and sports. After 2 months of physical therapy and doing home exercises, my symptoms got significantly better. I could function normally at work and with friends. After about 3 months, I was back to playing sports and working out at the gym, symptom-free.” 

“After surgery, I developed erectile dysfunction. Medication did not help at all. I suffered for one year until I was finally diagnosed with a type of pelvic floor dysfunction, levator ani syndrome. After 5 months of physical therapy, I have regained all sexual function.”

“I would recommend Beyond Basics and pelvic floor therapy for anyone dealing with the pain of endometriosis. I feel like I have my life back. I never went back for another surgery, and my jumbo size bottles of Advil, Tylenol and Tylenol PM have expired.”

“The physical therapists at Beyond Basics in New York City are the ultimate professionals in this field. They are compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. Having worked through my problem, I understand the feelings of isolation and hopelessness. There is hope and help.”

“I want to tell you how much I appreciate the help of Beyond Basics Physical Therapy! I felt the difference in my hip and back pain at once, and after only four sessions declared myself 98% improved. I would have said 100%, but I was afraid it would sound too miraculous. The truth is that I am a gazillion percent better.”

 “Six months after a laparotomy due to endometriosis, the doctor wanted to send me for surgery again. Another doctor told me that the pain could be due to scar tissue from surgery. Not wanting surgery after surgery, I looked for other alternatives. In Beyond Basics, I finally found the answer.”

“After my very first session I felt almost total relief. After a few more sessions, not only did I feel complete relief, I am better than ever before.”

“At first, I was confused. I could not understand how a physical therapist could help with my increasingly painful and uncomfortable bladder problems. But when I went home, I felt so much better.”

“Instead of numbing my pain with medication, physical therapy with Beyond Basics has fixed my pain.”

“I continued my PT treatments once a week up into my third trimester. Along with these treatments, my therapist devised an exercise program for me to do at home. It let me keep my muscles intact through the pregnancy. They definitely helped! After giving birth, my symptoms are 90 percent improved.”

“Our son Milo had trouble going to the toilet as soon as he was out of diapers and at 4 he still had a lot of accidents. We saw a gastroenterologist for over a year but the drugs did not work and all the exams showed that he had no physiological issues. So we started physical therapy at Beyond Basics. Milo has been going for 4 months now for massages, stretching exercises, and biofeedback. HIs condition has improved steadily, without drugs. He is now 5 ½ and has no more accidents at school which is a big relief.”

“I want to thank Beyond Basics Physical Therapy for the excellent treatment I received for injuries incurred during an auto accident…leading to lymphedema in my left arm. I have full range of motion and am delighted by the improvement. I would recommend Beyond Basics to anyone who required competent physical therapy.”
