About Queens 11422
The Rosedale neighborhood of Queens was used as farm land until the Southern Railroad of Long Island built a transportation hub for workers to get to downtown New York City. More roads were built, connecting the area to downtown NYC and the other boroughs of New York City. World War II saw a rapid growth in the community, turning it into the suburban oasis that it is today.
The manual therapies offered include adjustment of the joints so that they fit together properly. This is accomplished with the physical therapists hands and devices such as pulleys and resistance bands. Other manual therapy services include the Mulligan mobilizations for the neck and cervical spine.
