“If you are serious about taking care of your body and are willing to put in the work that comes with it, come to MOTIVNY. The team here has always had my back literally and physically. I’m beyond grateful to have a trustworthy support team.”
"I trust the team at MOTIV with all my injuries, athletic advice, training and lifestyle choices. They helped me get prepare for a hip labrum surgery and recover afterwards—and they’re always there to help me with chronic pain like plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis."
"Whether you're looking to rehab and get back to competing in any form of sport, or simply looking to address and correct a lingering injury so you can live a pain free life MOTIVNY is the place for you!"
Manual physical therapy is a hands-on approach that focuses on deeply working your joints and tissues, without machinery.
We use methods like Functional Range Release, joint manipulation, taping, and more to increase mobility and stability in the way that best suits you.
We use manual physical therapy in our holistic approach to physical therapy, which includes:
“Best Physical Therapists in NYC. You get full attention from the Physical Therapist for the entire hour session. They [also] teach you to take care of yourself - they give you the knowledge and tools to monitor your injury at home so you can keep improving and get better faster, so you can avoid having the same injury in the future.”
"The minute you walk into MOTIVNY you know you have arrived at the right place, professional yet inviting. This not your cookie cutter PT experience, this is a highly individualized program that will work miracles. Luke not only treats what ails the body but also helps you through the emotional ups and downs of rehabbing. I came into their space crippled after multiple back surgeries and Luke worked his magic and my life has changed. Thank you Luke and MOTIVNY."
"I highly recommend MOTIV to any athlete. This is the only place I have found that looks at your issues in a holistic way. I came to MOTIV with knee pain that several other PTs had looked at before. Nothing seemed wrong yet the pain didn't go away. Luke quickly diagnosed this as coming from my hip and lack of range of motion there. I was able to run pain free in about 2 months. I kept going to MOTIV weekly to address several other issues as well and was introduced to ways of increasing the range of motions in my joint as a way of preventing future injury. I have since moved overseas and have not been able to find a PT practice of similar quality."

Do you accept my insurance?
In order to use your insurance to work with a Therapist at MOTIVNY, your plan needs to have Out-of-Network benefits. Good news! We’re happy to check that for you, and clearly state all of your out-of-pocket expenses before your appointment.
No Out-of-Network Coverage? No worries! You can still meet with one of our therapists. We offer a cash rate per appointment.
Do I need a referral?
Since we are an out of network provider, you do not need a referral to meet with our therapists. However, if you are looking to use your insurance to pay for services, your insurance provider may require you to get one.
Do you accept FSA/HSA payments?
Yes. We’ll happily work with you to use your HSA, FSA, or other means of self-paying for your visits. Keep in mind that some HSA/FSA will require you to submit your receipts.

What sort of patients do you work with?
We have the expertise to see patients of all backgrounds and with any musculoskeletal or neurological injuries, as well as post-op surgical procedures. We most commonly see athletes, both recreational and professional, adolescent and adult. We pride ourselves in our ability to bridge the gap between rehab and performance, and get our patients back to their preferred fitness activities better than before they got injured.
Does your team have any specialties or certifications?
We believe that staying at the cutting edge of research in the orthopedic field is of the utmost importance in providing the best possible care for our clients. Our team includes US Board Certified Orthopedic Certified Specialists, EXOS Performance Specialists, and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists.
In addition to these, we are constantly learning and building on our knowledge with certification courses including the Russian Kettlebell Certification, Running Gait Analysis specialist courses, manual therapy and spinal manipulation courses, and other evidence- based research courses.
How much does a session cost?
We offer all patients a max out-of-pocket cost per appointment of $195 ($275 for our founders). We call this our self-pay rate and patients will never be asked to pay for costs beyond this out of their pocket.
If your insurance is helping to cover physical therapy, your out-of-pocket costs may vary from $30 to possibly $100 per session, and your insurance should pay for the rest. If your insurance isn’t helping to pay, your out-of-pocket expense will be the cost of the entire visit.
This varies from provider to provider, and by location, but you can expect the cost to be anywhere from $150-$300 for an hour-long appointment. This will vary based on the experience level and availability of the therapist you select to work with.
As an out-of-network provider, we don't require that patients have insurance and they don't need a prescription to see one of our therapists. We are also able to offer hour- long appointments at MOTIVNY because of this as opposed to the industry standard 30 minutes.
