Entire staff are professional and the place runs like a well oiled machine. Facilities are clean, spacious, and modern with boutique gym vibes. I'm in great care under Kathleen - her approach is very practical and centered around addressing and fixing the underlying issue of injury. She answers all of my questions directly and patiently.

I suffer with chronic ankle sprain and I was referred to Custom Performance by my orthopedist after two courses of therapy at another office, cortisone shots and a trip to an orthopedic surgeon who told me my next step was surgery. Kathleen quickly diagnosed my ankle issues reassured me that i was not destined for surgery. The care I receive from her is awesome - with very thoughtful diagnosis, great exercises I can do at home - all expertly communicated. As the office’s focus is treating runners, Kathleen understands how important it is to be able to run again after injuries. While they are work out-of-network for insurance, their attentiveness (they are not treating multiple patients at at time), their flexibility with appointments/treatment plans and expert care more than make up for it. And of course i have to give an extra shoutout to Katy & Brit for making insurance issues and scheduling a delightful experience!

I first discovered Custom when training for my first marathon as I got hurt mid cycle to find out from them that I was overtraining, which I considered. The amount of info I learned from Kat and the team was way more than I expected to walk out the door with. I was under the impression they would help me get better and what excercises to do to strengthen but they gave me an array of knowledge to the point where I fell more in love with the sport. As I am now 2 years into running I cannot imagine not having this facility on my side as its great to check in every few weeks or so even if no injury just to make sure my body is even and able to produce a great form going forward.

Can't recommend Custom PT enough!
I first visited Custom PT for a metatarsal stress fracture.  Not only did Wendy get me back to running safely and with no re-injury, but I also went on to run my first marathon 4 months later.  I cannot recommend them highly enough - not only for the physical rehab, but for all the mental support.  They really understand runners.

Such a great facility, and Lisbeth is amazing! She is helping me get back to healthy running, something I've been missing out on for several years now.

I was EXTREMELY injured with a hip bursitis injury a month into my marathon training. Kathleen was amazing in the right strategy with a mixture of exercises, alter G running and easing back into running. I was able to complete the marathon because of Custom PT's help and I didn't even have any hip pain! They are also extremely accommodating as I had to change my PT time almost every week. I love it here!

I've been working with Kathleen at Custom PT for several months now and have had a stellar experience. I originally presented with plantar fasciitis developed during marathon training. From the outset Kathleen gave me some great pointers to improve my gait and form and most importantly help me understand what's going on with my feet, tendons, muscles, hips etc. and what exacerbates problems. For me each PT session starts with stretching, targeted work on the issue at hand (thumbs up for Graston technique!), followed by excercise practice (progressing over time) and finally either heat/cold, recovery boots or taping. I feel I'm making real progress building strength and awareness which will hopefully help head off potential injuries in the future. Everyone at Custom PT is ridiculously friendly and helpful!

My PT Center for life.
For nearly 2 years, suffering from hip flexor issues, so running was always painful.
Referred to PT Custom and my first session was on 31st of March 17. The only promise, after the evaluation, I received from Cat was: I'll get you ready for Brooklyn Half Marathon, don't worry.
On 20 May 17 ( 50 days after my 1st session) , I ran my 1st half Marathon in 2 years, pain free. 
Thank you Cat, Jordan and all the friendly staff there.
