What exactly is a mobile physical therapist?
Mobile physical therapists can apply their trade and services anywhere. They aren't restricted to one specific location or facility. Francesco Gallaro PT (FGPT) has reserved areas throughout New York City within established clinics to perform treatment sessions as well as having the option to treat you in-home or at your office. This gives FGPT the flexibility to be accesible anywhere to meet its clients needs. Currently FGPT is operating out of locations in Midtown, Grand Central Station and Tribeca/Financial District.
We accept most insurances on an out-of-network basis as well as medicare. What exactly does this mean? Each insurance policy is different. Most plans have in-network and out-of-network benefits. P.T. facilities that accept in-network benefits deal with contracted lower rates of re-imbursement. This forces PT practices to pack their doors with multiple patients at one time and use aides to treat you for majority of your session. At Francesco Gallaro PT, your session is one hour with your therapist, we cater to you and understand that your time and health is important and should not be compromised. By going through out-of network benefits your deductible might be slightly higher, but so will be your quality of care. Ask yourself how important is your health? Why would you accept substandard care as the norm?

SFMA & FRR-FRC
Selective Functional Movement
Assessment is a comprehensive
movement assessment used to categorize movement patterns and direct manual therapy and therapeutic exercise choices. This approach is designed to complement the existing exam and serve as a model to efficiently integrate the concepts of posture, muscle balance and the fundamental patterns of movement into musculoskeletal practice.
Functional Range Release and Functional Range Conditioning
The function of the FRR system is to reduce tissue tension via the application of specifically applied forces which act to influence the long term resculpting and/or remodeling of disorganized tissue.
FRC is a system of training which applies scientific methods to the acquisition and maintenance of functional mobility, articular resilience, and articular health and longevity.
