Poughkeepsie-Based Physical Therapist Using Innovative Treatment Methods

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- When Justin Feldman opened his physical therapy practice in 2013, patients were sometimes skeptical of his methods.

Three years later,  Feldman, a 33-year-old Poughkeepsie resident, has won them over.

Feldman owns Feldman Physical Therapy, which emphasizes a preventative model of treatment, where the root causes of injuries – instead of just symptoms – are addressed.

Feldman’s career path began in childhood; his mother, who had a history of knee problems, brought him to many of her treatment sessions.

After working five years in a traditional physical therapy practice, Feldman, who graduated from Arlington High School, decided to branch out on his own.

“I saw the general direction that physical therapy was going in,” he said. “It was going more to a volume model, rather than a quality-of-care model.”

Feldman formed his practice with John Nunez. With office space rented at a pair of Gold’s Gyms, Feldman works from Poughkeepsie, Nunez from Fishkill.

Emphasizing personal attention, Feldman and Nunez treat only one patient per hour;  and they keep no staff, which lowers patients’ costs.

Their methodology, emphasizing total body treatment, developed from observing patients with injuries resulting from other problems.

The clinic’s means of determining the best course of action, functional movement screenings, helps uncover the source of injuries, rather than simply treating them.

“Every patient that comes in receives the same evaluation, regardless of injuries,” Feldman said.

Feldman said his method not only helps treat the problems patients are aware of but often picks up on other conditions.

After treatment, Feldman and Nunez encourage their clients to return for annual screenings to prevent future problems.

“We try to minimize the amount of time people need to see us for injuries,” Feldman said.

Feldman concedes that few doctors in his field practice in his manner, but says the results have been beneficial; his patients range from pre-schoolers to senior citizens.

“I love the work I do,” he said. “I love having people come in. I like being able to make a difference in people’s lives after only knowing them for a short time.”
