“I am 16 years old and after years of carrying a heavy backpack and soccer bag, I had constant back pain. It started in my lower back and began to hurt when doing simple daily routines and playing sports I had always played. I tried going to a chiropractor and then some acupuncture. Nothing worked and any results were temporary. After a year of feeling this pain, I decided to start physical therapy with Tonya. Meeting twice a week, and practicing the exercises on my own daily, I began to feel constant results within just a month. I was standing up straighter and the aches and pains in my lower back and hips were remarkably better. I’ve learned new exercises and techniques that have helped my back dramatically. I am almost never in pain now and have seen improvement in the way I function throughout my daily activities and my performance in sports.”
— S.T., age 16, Upper East Side, Physical Therapy ClientTonya is the ultimate professional…knowledgeable, prepared, and committed to ensuring her patients are successful.
“I have had the very good fortune to have been treated by Tonya for various diagnoses and wellness training for the past ten years. What started as an emphatic directive from a top neurosurgeon to “see no one else” has developed into an ongoing relationship, a “partnership” of sorts, the goal of which was getting my body back on track. Tonya is the ultimate professional…knowledgeable, prepared, and committed to ensuring her patients are successful. Her support, camaraderie, and genuine affection have enabled me to triumph and develop physically, in spite of myself!
— M.D., age 74, Murray Hill, Wellness ClientIt is incredible to work with a physical therapist who is so creative and thoughtful.
“Tonya has changed my life. I was originally referred to her for a sports injury. Not only did she help treat that problem, but she recognized other structural issues that caused me discomfort. Her original comment was “We can fix that!”…and she did! During our physical therapy sessions, Tonya helped me strengthen my body and improve my mobility. I stand differently, walk with greater ease, and feel much stronger. It is incredible to work with a physical therapist who is so creative and thoughtful. Tonya understands people and knows the human body. She has the talent and drive to help her patients move through the world and their lives with greater ease! Thank you, Tonya!”
— S.R., age 57, Upper East Side, Physical Therapy ClientTonya really knows what she is doing and now I can play soccer without pain.
“I came to Tonya because I had back pain while playing soccer. After five visits my back was a lot better. Tonya really knows what she is doing and now I can play soccer without pain. I am running faster and my game has improved.”
— D.C., age 17, Upper East Side, Physical Therapy ClientNow I am able to run and play sports pain-free.
“I’m a runner and scheduled an appointment with Tonya because of knee and back pain. She taped my knees, did these mobilization techniques on my back, and gave me exercises that seemed easy but were somehow challenging to perform and have given my body lasting benefit. Now I am able to run and play sports pain-free. She really helped me get back to a new, better normal and taught me how to take care of my body for the future.”
— R.G. age 28, Upper East Side, Physical Therapy & Wellness ClientI have never encountered the level of talent and technique that Tonya has...
“I have been in and out of physical therapy for hip problems for several years. Ultimately, I had to have major hip surgery and was referred to a “specialized” PT. It was a daunting experience…I was on crutches for weeks and the PT would spend 10 minutes with me and leave me to do random exercises on my own.
When I was referred to Tonya, I was so excited to find a therapist who spent a full one-on-one session with me and really focused on getting to the root of where my pain was stemming from. Tonya got me back on my feet, literally. I had a tough recovery and at times didn’t think I’d ever be off crutches. I’m so thankful for her patience, talent and dedication. In all my PT experiences, I have never encountered the level of talent and technique that Tonya has and, coupled with her full session one-on-one approach and dedication to healing her patients, she is the only therapist I would ever trust with my recovery.”

“Working with Tonya has changed my life. I have been a lifelong exerciser despite constant problems with my back, beginning with scoliosis at the age of 14. Over the years, osteoarthritis and a bulging disc developed in my back. In the months prior to physical therapy, I was in chronic pain. Never mind exercising, I could hardly bend down to tie my shoes. What Tonya achieved with me is nothing short of a miracle. My back and my posture have improved in ways I never could have imagined. Tonya has designed a program for me which provides me with the tools to manage my condition. I have successfully been able to resume my active lifestyle.”
— A.G., age 47, Upper West Side, Physical Therapy ClientI got to the point where I couldn't even hold my purse.
“I got to the point where I couldn’t even hold my purse. I tried massages, chiropractors, and acupuncture. It was not until someone recommended Tonya that I finally felt relief. After a few months of therapy with Tonya, I was not feeling that constant pain and could move around with ease. I still use on a regular basis the exercises Tonya taught me.”
— M.T., age 50, Manhattan, Physical Therapy ClientI have met with several therapists and none were as knowledgeable and competent as Tonya.
“I have had spinal injury for the past many years with several surgeries and until I met Tonya, I suffered poorly. In the past, I have met with several therapists and none were as knowledgeable and competent as Tonya. She has helped me tremendously.”
— H.K., age 76, Upper East Side, Physical Therapy ClientWithout her, I would be neither functional nor mobile nor as independent as I am.
“I am a lively 85 year old who has had five back surgeries. Tonya Juge has been my physical therapist and wellness trainer for 7 years. Without her, I would be neither functional nor mobile nor as independent as I am. I get around the city to museums, restaurants, and theaters using public transportation. She works me well and hard. I am very grateful to her.”
