At Clutch Physical Therapy, we provide customized, functional treatments with a full understanding of what you’re going through mentally and emotionally. The wild-animal-trapped-in-a-cage feeling when your body isn't cooperating? We get it.

You will receive the highest quality of care and undivided attention from actual doctors — not aides or assistants. Your recovery is too important to be treated by someone from the JV squad.

We also provide camaraderie as athletes ourselves — we’re out there training, competing and fundraising for charities right along with you. We place a very high value on the development of long term relationships with the athletes we treat. 

We’ll address the root cause of your pain, then develop a regimen of injury prevention to maximize your potential and keep you pain-free.  

Our Athlete Mechanics specialize in:

  • Sports & Orthopedic Physical Therapy, using the techniques of Applied Functional Science, Active Release Technique (ART) and Spinal Mobilization and Manipulation
  • Post-Op Rehab (Specialization in ACL, Achilles and Rotator Cuff and Labral Repairs)
  • Sports Performance
  • Soft Tissue Mobilization
  • Biomechanical Video Analysis
  • General commiseration that injury blows

FOUNDER

Patient athlete John C. (left) + Dr. Joshua Grahlman (right) — Athlete Mechanic, all-things-outdoors-enthusiast, dad, ice cream connoisseur, Spartan!

Dr. Joshua Grahlman, PT, DPT, FAFS graduated from Columbia University with an orthopedic specialty and has spent his career treating athletes of all levels in New York City. With an established patient following, he founded Clutch PT in 2013.

Josh has traveled the country to take part in continuing education classes, and completed a Fellowship in Applied Functional Science which allows him to incorporate groundbreaking new techniques in his personalized treatments. Josh is also certified in Active Release Technique and Spinal Manipulation and is a TRX Suspension Training Specialist. He has consulted for Triathlete magazine and CBS News, and regularly hosts clinics about injury prevention and sports performance in New York City.

With special knowledge of endurance and overhead sports as well as biomechanics, Josh has treated the whole gamut of athletes — from four-time World Ironman Champion Chrissie Wellington, two Ironman Champion triathletes, an Olympic marathoner and fencer, to age-group competitors, weekend warriors and runners of all skill levels.

As a mutli-marathoner, triathlete, obstacle course racer, avid football, softball and dodgeball player and former wrestler, Josh truly understands the athlete mindset and how important it is to get patients back to doing what they love.

With two kids and managing his practice, he doesn’t have a lot of free time, but he loves running and racing with them in the double jogger while his son yells “Faster, Daddy! Faaaaaaaster!”
