Patients who have undergone major surgeries like total joint replacements are typically wary when coming to Physical Therapy for the first time. Our therapy teams ensure that patients are comfortable and confident both when receiving treatment and when they’ve gone home. Patients like Kenneth can attest to this safe and happy environment:
“Following my left hip replacement surgery and a week in rehabilitation, I wisely chose to continue PT with Peak Performance. My experience at your facilities with Therapist Nicole Osmundsen and her team (Joe Talento and Frank Marciari) was pleasant, comfortable and helped in my quick recovery. Nicole is a consummate professional. The team paid strict attention to the proper applications of the exercises. I am very happy and grateful for the improvement I made in just four months in the program. Exceptional job! Much thanks to them.”– Kenneth F.
After Nick L. underwent total hip replacement surgery, everything from climbing stairs to walking down the street was a painful struggle. Throughout his time at physical therapy, he started to regain strength and mobility from specific exercises and aquatic therapy.
“I had total right hip replacement on 12/21/18 . I found Chris at Peak Performance in New Hyde Park and couldn’t believe how fast I started to regain my range of motion and strength in my hip and legs. I met Chris for the first time in early January, not being able to navigate stairs without going one step at a time, and was experiencing pain in my right leg when I walked too far. Now, I am practically running up stairs and walking every time I have the opportunity to do so. Once something gets easy for me, Chris changes it up. It is never the same old thing, I am always doing new, more challenging exercised to get all my muscles that have been dormant for months all firing up again. Now, we’re also working in the pool with Aquatic therapy techniques.
Chris is also part of a top notch and extremely knowledgeable team. Every time I’m at a physical therapy session, there are at least 6 staff members at every turn I take, all of them willing to help me. Thanks to my Physical Therapist, Chris, and everyone at Peak Performance- I finally have my quality of life back! “
When Paul C. found out he had to undergo surgery on his knee, he knew he had to find the right facility to recover at after the surgery. He was recommended to go to Peak by a friend and he’s had an amazing recovery at Peak Performance in Island Park!
Paul was kind enough to share his praise for Peak after finishing up his total joint replacement-focused specialized therapy. Read more below:
“The professionalism starts the moment you walk in the door with the friendly and knowledgeable receptionists. You’ll quickly become the major focus of small teams that monitor your progress. Everyone is extremely personable and well equipped with a positive attitude to help you succeed! They proved to be the right choice after HSS!
I had multiple choices for Rehab after my surgery at HSS. I relied on two colleagues recommendations of Peak and was pleasantly surprised. Very professional staff that was well versed in my surgery and had a program ready based in on my specific condition and needs. The entire staff knew at all times what I was working on and monitored my progress with enthusiasm and encouragement. Great place, great vibes and I left each time feeling a little better!”
Our HydroWorx pools and team of specialized Physical Therapists are changing the lives of our patients.
Meet Uchena, he uses aquatic therapy to treat his Multiple Sclerosis and simultaneously recover from a double hip replacement.
Without the pool, Uchena’s recovery would have been much slower and more painful.

“I started physical therapy at Peak Performance in September 2017. Jennifer was my Physical Therapist and she was wonderful. She was attentive and very positive and upbeat. She was caring and always motivated me to push my limits in order to help me walk again without pain. Jennifer and all the staff at Peak Performance in New Hyde Park were wonderful and I would highly recommend this facility to friends, family, or anyone who needs physical therapy.”
