WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY For Riverdale-Bronx residents, Riverdale Sports Physical Therapy is not only a very convenient location but this practice provides excellent, and more importantly, personal attention. Having already experienced physical therapy approaches with two knee surgeries and a shoulder problem, I was delighted to find this office so close to where I live. Dr. Alex Sherman is very attentive and he approaches his therapy with confidence and sensitivity.

I feel so lucky to have found Riverdale Sports Therapy. First of all, the office accepts Worker’s Comp patients. The reception desk is so helpful with scheduling appointments and contacting the insurance provider and the therapy staff is wonderful. Dr. Sherman is a joy. He is so knowledgeable! Also – he sings! I’m almost 60 years old – no spring chicken – but the results I’ve seen are wonderful. The entire staff is friendly, effective, and smart. I highly recommend Riverdale Sports Therapy.

Earlier this year (2014), I needed P.T. for a shoulder injury and was referred to Riverdale Sports Physical Therapy by my orthopedic surgeon. I found a clean and professional office. Alex Sherman and his assistant therapists were helpful, patient and informative. The front office was friendly and accommodating. The office had everything I needed and I have no reservations recommending them.

I attended therapy last year for scoliosis, and had a prescription from my/the doctor for a few exercises and therapies. I attended sessions in the morning on weekdays and I had a good experience. The staff, physical therapist and assistant were attentive and friendly…and they had a good sense of humor! I was not in pain, but at least my time spent doing exercises was fun. The exercises I was doing there did not cure my back, but I was told that if I continued to do them at home, they would keep my back muscles strong and prevent curving of the spine.

Alex Sherman is an amazing physical therapist. He will talk to you and explain everything thoroughly so that you understand exactly what’s wrong and what needs to be done. He and his staff provide patients with electronic stimulation and deep tissue massage combined with an exercise program designed to get them back to normal as soon as possible. The office staff is friendly and competent and Alex keeps things fun. Riverdale Sports Physical Therapy is highly recommended!
