Richard Symister, MSPT, CSCS

The Physical Therapy game has changed since I first became licensed in 1997. It’s no longer just about decreasing your pain. It’s about increasing your performance.

Whether it’s work, sports, or play, you want the “fix” to healing from pain, perfecting movement fluidity, and increasing your overall strength and fitness.

Here’s how I help you reach your milestones:

  • My evaluations are head-to- toe, regardless of your pain or injury.
  • My treatments will involve lots of bodywork and movement correction practice and homework.
  • My sessions are strictly 1-on-1. 
  • Although I treat many athletes and dancers with knee, shoulders, and lower back dysfunctions, I love working with all folks that move for a living and live to move.

Menatalla Mahmoud, Doctor Of Physical Therapy

Dr. Mahmoud received her BA at NYC’s CUNY Baruch College where she nurtured her interests in both psychology and music. Upon graduation, she decided to pursue a more hands-on approach to patient care. While enrolled in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at Dominican College of Blauvelt, she completed her clinical rotations in local physical therapy clinics in Brooklyn and Manhattan. She gained experience treating a wide variety of populations including athletes with sports injuries, office workers, geriatrics, and neurological populations. She enjoys manual therapy and working holistically to improve the overall quality of life for her patients. She hopes to expand into Pelvic Floor physical therapy in the coming months. When she is not in the clinic, she enjoys cooking, reading fantasy novels, scuba diving when she can, and attending Comic-Con.
