PHYSICAL THERAPIST BIO

Russell Altman is the Owner and Physical Therapist here at Elite Care Physical Therapy. He graduated with his Doctor of Physical Therapy from Columbia University in 2006. Since his graduation, Russell has strived to continue his education and to refine his technique with manual therapy and exercise prescription to help people from all walks of life. ​He uses the same approach with the athlete that comes in looking to get stronger and eliminate pain from a particular movement to the person who just wants to walk around the block without pain. Although he has no designated specialty, he works with a wide variety of diagnoses, including TMJ dysfunction, low back, and neck pain, houlder pain, and knee dysfunctions to name a few. He prides himself on his ability to relate to the patient and educate them on their diagnoses, treatment, and prognosis. "Patient education is of utmost importance in this field. If the patient can understand the "how and why" of their treatment and recovery, it makes the recovery ten times easier for both the patient and me. 50% of my job is to communicate to the patient the "how and why" of an injury and the "how and why" of their selected treatment plan. If this is achieved, then the other 50% of my job becomes much easier and the patient benefits greatly to a shorter recovery and a quicker return to prior level of activity." Come in and chat with Russell about almost anything!
