Youngsoo Oh, PT, of Youngs Physical Therapy & Acupuncture, is a physical therapist who specializes in the physical rehabilitation of patients of all ages in the Midtown Manhattan area of New York City.

If you’re recovering from a serious illness, surgery, or injury, you may benefit from physical rehabilitation. Additionally, if you have a disability, you could benefit from different types of rehabilitation, which restores or improves your quality of life if you have physical impairments or disabilities that affect the musculoskeletal system, which includes your muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and bones.
Typically, rehabilitation after injury or illness includes:
Mr. Oh has a unique, comprehensive approach to rehabilitation because he often combines his practice’s knowledge of physical therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, and other complementary techniques. This combination provides patients of all ages with a way to regain mobility and minimize pain in the long term.
In addition to regaining mobility and function, and managing pain, rehabilitation also focuses on helping you prevent further complications from arising as you recover. You’re often in need of rehabilitation for several conditions at once, and therefore need a multidisciplinary approach to your care. If you don’t fully recover from the existing conditions, and make progress toward a more independent lifestyle, you can develop secondary physical issues.
Mr. Oh takes a multidisciplinary focus to your complete rehabilitation. He is just as concerned with your overall health and well-being as he is with managing your pain or helping you recover.
Everyone’s condition and circumstances are different, so Mr. Oh creates a physical therapy plan that functions best for your unique needs and health goals. At first, you may start out with fairly simple movements, exercises, and tasks. As you gain strength and dexterity, your exercises will increase. You may feel like you’re doing a lot of hard work at times, but Mr. Oh monitors your progress each step of the way, and prescribes therapies and movements he knows will be beneficial to your overall recovery.
In many cases, your rehabilitation program is a combination of therapies that work together to help you recover as best as possible.
