Conditions We Treat

Julie Zapata is a professional in the New York and New Jersey since 2000. She understands that your health and wellness concerns extend beyond routine medical care. She is a highly trained, licensed, expert Physical Therapist and provides an array of comprehensive services and procedures.

Julie's favorite patient to treat is when someone comes in and says "My doctor says there's nothing I can do."  If you are still living and breathing, there is something we can do.  

Patient education is absolutely essential, and is a significant portion of what we do on a daily basis.  Julie also loves being a manual therapist and a problem solver.  

In fact, in 2019 and 2020, Julie has taken coursework from the following organizations in order to broaden her scope of practice and expertise:

Postural Restoration Institute,    Strater Scoliosis Rehabilitation Institute and   Herman and Wallace, the gold standard in Pelvic rehabilitation training.
