I've been working with Edward for several months for my post concussion vestibular therapy and he has been absolutely amazing. Edward is caring, responsive, and very knowledgeable. He listens closely and always provides the right amount of challenge with every session. I feel really lucky to have his guidance during this difficult time and cannot recommend him enough!

Wen was a textbook perfect doctor: extremely knowledgable and detail-oriented. Despite being quite busy, we had fun chats and he knew that I liked a challenge so he always got creative with the exercises. Playing with the cones is still my favorite :)For Wen, 5 stars. For the office and how it is set up and run- 5 stars.It’s been over 2 months since my last season. And I can say that I am back where I started, not due to the lack of trying, but precisely due to too much trying. Let me explain.My critique comes with the approach PT takes itself.I twisted my ankle and most likely torn a ligament several years ago. The doctor whom I had access to did an Xray, didn’t see anything and gave me extra strength Ibuprofen and sent me home. It took months of back and forth before I was finally able to get an MRI at which point it was too late, the swelling was too big to see anything. After another several months of fighting I finally got a referral to PT and started getting better. At that point I switched jobs and lost insurance.Fast forward to now, I have access to coverage again and decided to get back to PT, as it was one thing that actually helped me in the past.As the injury is old, corrective approach was taken. Since my foot started turning inward, Wen and I worked on strengthening the glute and the quad so my foot could stabilize. We also worked on a series of balancing postures so my foot would be more level with the ground., rather than turning inward as I balancedIn theory, by bringing the glute to the same strength as the other side, the muscle would hold me and the straight line from my hip down to my foot would be restored, where now I would be equal on both sides.In practice, this piecemeal approach put me in a double bind between pain and discomfort, the same situation as what I started with.Here is what happened.I would leave PT with my left glute on fire and do exercises every day. I felt stronger and started running again. The pain in the knee would get resolved with some stretches. I thought that as log as I remained dedicated to the plan all would be well and my body would adjust. It’s been over two months after my last session and my body has not adjusted.I find that I can’t skip more than a day of not doing the exercises or my foot starts turning inward again. I can’t continue to do the exercises every day before the pain in my glute is simply too much-the muscle is overstressed.Running, biking, and hiking with this new balance doesn’t automatically strengthen the glute. My yoga practice suffers as my glutes are overworked and I can’t maintain balance postures for as long or be as graceful in my transitions.Overall, the PT approach has not been sustainable for me. I started off balance and in pain and I ended overcorrected and in pain.Reflecting, I look at my body and its wisdom. My right glute is so strong because it was trying to compensate for the weakness of the left, which was trying to protect my injured foot from overworking. By trying to make my left glute as strong as the right I was not restoring balance, but rather employing a mechanical approach and over stressing the body. My knee and occasional hip pain were products of putting too much weight on the foot, which remains injured.My doctor offered me surgery as an option to remove the bone which is protruding outward as a result of the injury. I will be keeping all my bones and will be looking into manual corrective methods of putting the bone back into its proper place. Such intuitive medicine, is of course, not covered by insurance.

PSPT in Park Slope has been instrumental to my vestibular recovery following surgery. The staff addresses a broad variety of issues among young and older customers. My particular case involved many exercises that focused on restoring balance. Edward recognized my trouble spots and worked through them with me attentively and authoritatively.

Wen is fantastic. I dislocated my right shoulder in October of 2020 and I must say that my shoulder is 100% better and even stronger than it was prior to the dislocation. No surgery was required but a strong commitment to learning the proper form on how to do the exercises I enjoy was the key to my recovery. Wen is the guy to see. “Wen” you hurt yourself be sure to see Wen. Thanks Wen.

After having an ACL repair surgery, I started going to Park Sports PT and was lucky to get Wen as my therapist. I was able to walk without support in just a few weeks after surgery and now, 6 months later, I’m back to all pre-injury activities. Wen is a true professional and he guided me through recovery. He is very attentive and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

I have been going to therapy for various reason for years, and I can say with confidence that Wen at Park Sports therapy was the most detailed oriented, patient therapist I have ever worked with. I deeply appreciate his holistic and integrative approach to therapy where he not just gives right exercises but truly break down the problem and in ways you can understand and bring that knowledge back home with to continue the work on your own. I saw Wen for my right foot, and highly recommend him and Park Sports PT!!

Wen was very professional and encouraging, and helped me realize how and why I'd developed so many muscle imbalances. In just eight weeks of PT, I drastically increased my lower body strength and went from a lot of pain to virtually no pain. I'm grateful to have had such great direction and motivation. I'd highly recommend Wen and the Park Sports PT Team.

Working with Wen at Park Sport PT changed my life! Before I worked with Wen, I had no idea how to do any kind of exercises but he gently and patiently helped me learn. Wen is clear, encouraging, extremely knowledgeable, reassuring and optimistic. He gave instructions in a way that was understandable and he modified exercises to fit my abilities, then gradually worked up levels of intensity as I began to gain strength and range of motion. He did such a good job that I even graduated earlier than expected!

Edward was fantastic, I spent 6 weeks rehabbing my shoulder with him. He's on point with identifying the problem and helping me to manage the pain at home. I thought the entire process was perfect, from checking in, feeling safe during COVID, and even handling it with my medicaid insurance. I appreciate the work he put in, and he really helped rehab my shoulder to nearly 100%. The home workouts really helped and we gotta put the time in if we want to get healthy, and he made sure to drive that point home. Whenever something else in my shoulder would tweak, we'd slow down and talk about the pain while figuring out what was the best method for mitigating it. I really appreciate my time here.

I had an excellent experience at Park Sports PT. My physical therapist was professional and attentive. He was extremely detailed oriented and took great care to teach me how to properly rehab my injury during our sessions and created an easy to follow home program. He pushed me to work hard but was always upbeat and encouraging. He also kept the session interesting, adding new exercises each time.

I wanted to take the opportunity to rave, cheer and endorse my wonderful experience with Melissa Jesski. Not only did she work through my issue with pinpoint expertise, her demeanor, professionalism and attentiveness was way above the bar I expected. I always felt comfortable, relaxed and gung-ho to move through my sessions.

After several months of pain and no progress I finally made an appointment with Park Sports and I am glad I did. I made rapid progress, improving my strength and range of motion quickly under Edward's expert eye and gentle care. He knew when to push and when to back off so that my recovery was safe and steady. The covid-19 safety protocols were much appreciated and well-adhered to, making it a safe and comfortable experience in trying times. I highly recommend PSPT.

Wen was absolutely terrific. I've had PT at various times over the years and he's one of the best - very responsive, patient, and encouraging, and quick and creative to adjust therapy around any limitations. And he kept it fun - I was always looking forward to my sessions. The location is also doing a good job managing the challenges of Covid, with staggered patients and solid protocols.

Edward Umheiser is a wonderfully caring and effective physical therapist. I first worked with him a few years ago, and have recommended him to friends who were as impressed as I. When my doctor recommended that I have another course of therapy for my knee, I did not hesitate to return to Edward. I've made great progress in a very short time.

I went to ParkSports PT on the recommendation of my orthopedic surgeon. I had severe spinal pain. I had 4 months of physical therapy and I feel much better. I know my spinal problems will not go away, but I know what exercises will really help. The therapist Dipika, was kind, courteous and extremely knowledgable. I would definitely go back if necessary!

I’m injury prone and thus have been a patient of several physical therapy centers. I selected Park Sports after shoulder surgery and can report this was my most positive experience with physical therapy. Park Sports was very flexible with scheduling and my therapist did not just go through the motions. She was always caring and inquisitive about how I was doing and feeling. She adjusted my sessions based on my input and was not afraid to push me. I completed my PT sooner than expected and I feel great. Highly recommended.

The office staff and therapists I worked with were incredibly helpful and my condition improved vastly after 6 weeks of therapy and at-home exercises. They run on time too! The only thing that could be added is a change room separate from bathroom, but that would not deter me from going back should I need more physical therapy in the future.

I have been a client of Park Sports Physical Therapy (PT) on and off for 3 years. I have been under the care of Edward , along with my wife. Edward and the staff have always been professional with an abundance of knowledge in the PT field. I have found Edward to be patient, caring and competent with an expertise in the field that puts my mind at ease during difficult times. I would not hesitate to refer anyone in need of PT to Edward and the staff at Park Sports. They will help you greatly in the rehabilitation process.

Recovery from Total Knee Replacement is not easy. That being said, I must admit that I had a wonderful PT experience at the 6th Avenue branch of Park Sports Physical Therapy.Before having TKR 5 months ago, I have gone through many years of PT in several different places, so I have a pretty good knowledge of the various practices. That is one of the reasons that I am so impressed with PSPT...I have a lot of experiences with which to compare it!When I started PT a few weeks after surgery I was in pain and very apprehensive. I worked primarily with Edward Umheiser, and he immediately put me at ease. Edward is experienced and knowledgeable, has a very reassuring and encouraging manner, and always took time to listen to my concerns. He somehow always managed to find a way for me to do the exercises needed to stretch and strengthen my surgical knee without triggering spasms in my chronically achy back. Amazing!!From the bright and open space, the kind and efficient staff, to the excellent level of courtesy and professionalism, I feel that my 4 months at Park Sports Physical Therapy was a completely positive experience.

I had a total knee replacement four months ago and went to the 6th Ave branch for PT. Initially I was in quite a bit of pain and pretty foggy from the drugs but Edward was incredibly patient and resourceful in getting me to the right level of flexibility. He pushed me in just the right way, and never let me get discouraged. Over a few weeks of treatment, I had the opportunity to work with a couple of the other therapists there and everyone was unfailingly friendly and focused. I never had the feeling that I was left to my own devices; even when they were working with a couple of people simultaneously they kept an eye on what I was doing. The space is light and uncluttered and the vibe is peaceful and busy. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

After having a very serious ankle injury and 2 surgeries, my surgeon at HSS Hospital sent me a referral list of PT providers in my neighborhood. From day 1 everyone at Park Sports was caring and professional with me. Some patients prefer to work with 1 specialist throughout their journey. I am not one of those people so I can attest to each specialist that treated me. They gave me great care, provided me with the proper exercises to do at home. As usual, my insurance company tried to end my rehab period. The lead therapist Edward tirelessly worked on my behalf to have appeals done since he and my surgeon both were in agreement that my rehab was not done. We worked out payment solutions in the interim while we waited to hear back from my insurance company so I wouldnt have a lapse in my visits with Park Sports. I could go on and on. In summation, as a young and active adult who had this type of injury it really was a tough pill to swallow. All the therapists at Park Sports were instrumental in my recovery both physically and mentally. I am forever grateful. Thanks everyone!

My frozen shoulder gradually recovered its full range of movement over five months of physical therapy here. I attribute this relatively quick recovery to the consistently helpful and caring treatment I received from Edward Umheiser, who also manages this small open plan physical therapy practice on Sixth Ave. and 20th St. I highly recommend Edward and any of the other competent therapists at this friendly office.

Park Sports works miracles!I was suffering lower back pain and got an MRI. Park Sports prescribed a month of PT base on the diagnosis. After a month of treatment I felt almost no pain!. Edwin gave just the right amount of massage, exercise and home work for a dramatic recovery. Ten years ago Park Sports treated my wrist after surgery with stellar results. Thank you for your care and proficiency.

Allison is friendly and upbeat and maintained a congenial atmosphere for her clients. The office staff was friendly and efficient. Initially, I left an inquiry online and they got back to me right away confirming that they accepted my insurance. Appointments were easy to book. I highly recommend this establishment.

A lovely relaxed environment for healing - open plan and open-hearted. I felt that my injury was understood and the exercises I was given to do on location and then later at home made a huge difference to my recovery. The actual treatments I received - massage, sound waves and others, all sped up the recovery process too. All the advice given was excellent. I was treated by Allison Sanchez-Masi who was professional, compassionate and very clear. I would throughly recommend this clinic for healing your injuries. It is a pleasant walk from the subway.

I have been to Park Sports on 6th Avenue for physical therapy on my hand for an arthritic thumb joint. I would never go anyplace else. Allison is simply a great hand physical therapist. And she has gotten even better. I first saw her 5 years ago for the same problem. I thought she was excellent 5 years ago, but she's even better now.The office is very good as well -- easy to deal with.No reservations about Park Sports.

Went to the 6th Ave location of Park Sports PT after breaking the wrist of my dominant hand (isn’t that always the case?!). I had just had the cast removed and was not looking forward to weeks of therapy. But therapist Allison Sanchez-Masi dispelled the gray mood. She explained what the problems were and how we were going to tackle them, and the result was steady progress. Cannot speak highly enough of her – a knowledgeable, thorough and skilled therapist, she happens also to be very nice and have a good sense of humor. She also spotted early on that weeks in a cast had taken their toll on my shoulder, so we started working on that. Again, noticeable improvement. So a huge thumbs up!

The team at Park Sports helped me get the mobility back in my shoulder after an arthroscopic repair. I am grateful to have had a great experience because now I'll be able to play golf and go to the gym again, which I've been waiting 4 months to do.

I smashed up my wrist (shattered) pretty badly. Ended up with an external fixator which meant I was in bad shape. Boris at the Clinton Hill facility recommended I see Allison Sanchez-Masi. And I can't say enough great things about her. Okay...the physical results are amazing. She's great to work with. She's also great fun. She gets results, she's patient and she's the nicest person in the world. I went from virtually no mobility to near 100% in 3 short months. Amazing. Highly recommend Allison and Park Sports in general.

Edward is amazing! I came to Park Sports Physical Therapy after a labrum repair surgery. I was immobilized for almost 5 weeks with no ROM prior to seeing Edward. Long story short, after several weeks with him, I now have full ROM and strength, and am back to my everyday physical fitness routines. Couldn't be happier with my experience and the results!

I saw Edward and John to help me with an injured knee. I regularly run and had an injury, so was referred to PT. They were professional, knowledgeable and my I am now able to run again. The office is well equipped and I felt as if I was getting a bespoke service. I recommend these guys very highly.

I was hit by a car on my bike and had extensive shoulder surgery done to repair 360 degree torn labrum, torn rotator cuff, detached bicep and frozen shoulder. Post surgery pain was brutal to say the least. I started PT with Edward 3 days later. He helped ease my shoulder into movements, gradually increasing mobility and strength. He was always patient, explained the exercises, purpose and desired results. Edward's work was invaluable to my progress. He is professional, knowledgeable and just an all around great person. Highly recommend!!!

I can't say enough good things about this place. Edward was extremely helpful and professional with my shoulder rehab, and he was never late for a single session. Always began on time, and always gave me his utmost attention during our sessions. If you're serious about your wellbeing, this is the place to go!

I came to 6th Avenue Park Sports PT after a hip replacement and in Edward found someone who was very tuned in to what my body could do and what I needed to do in order to have a speedy, smooth recovery. After a lifetime of doing various contact sports I have high pain tolerance and a tendency to push too hard so it was great to have someone who made sure the exercises were challenging, but not too taxing, carefully tracked my progress and held me back a little when needed. The results speak for themselves: after less than three months I can walk 6-7 miles, cycle 30 miles, and I'm back working out in my boxing gym.
