We are Gotham PT. Lower Manhattan’s preferred physical therapy clinic. We empower New Yorkers to take charge of their health and get back to their active lives for good without needing to rely on drugs, surgery, or endless treatments.

If you’re here, it’s probably because you have pain, an injury, or something limiting how well and how much you can move.
Whether you’ve had persistent pain for several months, or you just hurt yourself last week, or you’re recovering from surgery, you’re probably concerned and maybe even a little afraid about what the future holds for you, and whether you’ll ever get back to your old self again.
You know there must be something that can be done, but you’re not sure what.
Many of our clients come to us after they’ve tried rest. They felt better after a few weeks, but when they tried to return to their usual activities, the pain came right back, just like before.
Or they were given medication to reduce their pain. And maybe the medicine worked a little, but they know that’s not treating the true cause of their pain, and they definitely don’t want to take those drugs forever.
Some have paid lots of money out-of-pocket for chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, Rolfing, cupping, etc. and the problem remained.
Some tried to tackle the problem on their own with the help of the internet and it didn’t work, or sometimes it even made the problem worse!
And, yes, some of our clients have tried physical therapy elsewhere, but they only spent 15 minutes with a physical therapist and the rest of the time they were doing the same monotonous exercises with rubber bands with no real supervision except from a busy aide who was watching five other people.
Does any of that sound familiar?
We created GOTHAM PHYSICAL THERAPY because we know that most people have the ability and the desire to help themselves if only they had a helpful guide to show them how and encourage them along the way. We want to show you the power you have to overcome your obstacles. Not with drugs and endless passive treatments, but with guidance and reassurance and a healthy dose of the right exercise.
If you’d like to learn how we can help you, we invite you to have a chat with one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy. They’ll be able to answer a lot of your questions about what’s going on and help you make a decision about the right care for you. The phone call is complimentary and there is no obligation to book an appointment when the call is over.
Whereas at many clinics you’ll see a physical therapist for 15 minutes, here every patient is treated by a physical therapist for 45 minutes, start to finish, no hand-off to an aide. We know that you’re coming to us with your problems and your hopes, so we devote our undivided attention and time to your needs.
We love to help people get back to the gym without pain so they can feel fit and healthy.
We love to help people get back to playing their favorite sport after work so they can be with friends and blow off the steam of stressful day.
We love to help people walk for miles, climb stairs, and stand for hours so they can traverse this urban jungle and take full advantage of everything New York has to offer.
And, we love to help dedicated people create a long-term solution, not just a quick fix.
Listen to how we helped a few people just like you.

Hi, I’m Dr. Zach Getz. I believe strongly in the human body’s ability to adapt and to heal if given the right environment. My goal is to give you the tools you need to succeed, and to be your guide along the path to recovery.
As a physical therapist, my goal is to help my patients achieve independence and higher functioning as quickly as possible. I believe that the road to health and recovery is best done by viewing the individual as a whole person with unique goals and limitations.
