• The idea for Road to Recovery PT was born out of frustration as Dr. Mark Vaysman, DPT worked at various outpatient clinics as well as acute and subacute departments of a major rehab hospital. Facility after facility, Mark encountered administrators placing profits before outcomes, quantity before quality, and turning therapy departments into factories.

    Dr. Vaysman wanted to practice therapy the old fashioned way, the way his father, a seasoned physical therapist with over 40 years of experience, used to practice; the way therapists used to practice before they started giving up their profession to massage therapists and athletic trainers. Mark wanted to combine his knowledge of anatomy and human movement, his advanced manual skills and exercise prescription expertise with modern advances in pain relieving technology and exercise equipment to create a system of therapeutic intervention where results and outcomes take precedence over financial gains. Thus in 2004 he turned his back on the “cookiecutter” PT factories, and established Road to Recovery Physical and Occupational Therapy.

    At Road to Recovery Physical and Occupational Therapy every patient receives personalized care including but not limited to evaluation, massage, myofascial release, mobilization, kinesio taping, modality and exercise prescription, all performed by the treating therapist. When facilitating Physical Therapy in Brooklyn, New York and in the surrounding areas like Rockaway and Williamsburg, the R2R therapist will combine many different treatment methodologies to enable each patient to achieve their highest pain free functional level in the shortest amount of time possible.
