Mark is amazing! He truly cares about helping his patients and is extremely educated in this field. After having my first child, my neck and shoulders were completely giving up on me. After two sessions with Mark, I was already feeling better. It's now been a couple months and my upper body has never felt so strong - which is incredibly important when you're taking care of a 7 month old! Working with Mark is one of the best decisions I made postpartum.
I want to give a strong recommendation for Mark Lusk. As a Physical Therapist myself I was very selective in finding the best of the best. The very best is Mark Lusk. I was told I needed hip surgery and that I only had a 30% chance of Physical Therapy being successful without the surgery. I decided to give it my all..which included traveling to Mark for PT for more than an hour each way- which let me tell you is worth it!! Within a handful of sessions I knew I was already on the road to a 'surgery-free' recovery. Within a few months I was back at the gym. I have since made a complete recovery! I could have only done this with Mark. Mark has so much more to offer than the average Physical Therapist. He spends the time with you direct 1:1 treatment with so much passion for what he does and so much compassion as well. Mark is an athlete and a dancer himself so he also gets what it means to be active and athletic. He has vast experience working as a physical therapist on over 60 Broadway shows! He not only is certified in many more manual techniques than the average physical therapists but is also comfortable and confident enough with these techniques that he actually instructs courses in these subjects. Mark has many different "tools in his toolbox" and has what to offer to everyone. His treatments are custom fit for the patient and directly address the relevant problems. I could go on and on but let me not waste your time.. just schedule your appointment. You will not regret it because let me tell you...no other Physical Therapist in all of Manhattan can help you in the way Mark Lusk can.
Mark Lusk worked with me as I recovered from a severed long biceps tendon, reattached after surgery. As always, Mark is an acute and dedicated listener. And he certainly knows his physical therapy. He was always, always more than willing to explain the hows and whys of an exercise, and how it would impact, strengthen the particular part of the body, in my case, my shoulder and arm. Mark is thorough, consistent, attentive, responsive and wonderfully caring and considerate. I can easily run out of superlatives for all he does, from intake to - sniff - wrap-up.
I was diagnosed with a chronic ankle condition last year and was told by a surgeon that only surgery could solve my problem. I had been walking around with intermittent pain for over two years that frequently made it impossible for me to be mobile. After receiving therapy from Mark and doing the exercises he gave me his homework I am now, after three months, able to walk anywhere, any time, for as long as I want without pain. Mark is passionate about his work, highly knowledgeable about the human body, and whole heartedly committed to the overall health of his clients. He is also very persistent about finding a solution. I highly recommend Mark to anybody who is thinking of going for physical therapy.
