If you’re an embodied mover with a goal to be stronger and more durable with robust activity, our practice is for you.
Our approach to physical therapy treatment is all about education, addressing the multidimensional nature of pain, a robust movement and exercise program, and self-treatment strategies that you can use to independently manage your symptoms and prevent recurrence long term.
We use active treatment methods.
Rather than relying on ongoing visits to other providers for treatments they do to you, our aim at Practice Human is to help you better understand your condition, share in the decision making process, and equip you with tools you can implement yourself. We’ll know we’ve delivered on our mission when you no longer require physical therapy services.
Details below will help make an informed decision.
If it’s “too long, not gonna read,” we get it. Call our office Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM ET: 646-609-3995. Juniper, our Operations Coordinator, would be happy to chat about what brings you to PT and how we can best work together.
Physical Therapists are problem solvers, first and foremost. Please reach out and tell us more about your unique problems and what you need help with now. This will be the focus of your visits every time we see you.
If you’re wondering what PT treatment of your condition might look like, Dr. Caitlin Casella is available for a free 15 minute discovery call to discuss your goals and answer your questions.
Practice Human is an out of network practice. While we are not in network with commercial insurance carriers, we are a proud Medicare provider.
What does this mean?
If you have Medicare as your primary coverage…
You are eligible for physical therapy visits under Medicare billing policy.
If you have out of network coverage in your insurance plan…
Claims submitted to your insurance count toward your deductible and you'll be reimbursed for a portion of the visit price once the deductible has been met. If you'd like to have us check on your out of network coverage, we're happy to do so. Please give us a call to discuss: 646-609-3995
Flexible pricing may be available…
If you do not have out of network insurance coverage and there is financial need. We offer payment plans. We’ve also developed services and support outside of physical therapy sessions which may help bring down the number of visits needed to resolve your problem.
We like to be up front about prices and not have you clicking through 12 pages on a website or waiting around on the phone. We also strive to remove any of the guesswork that often comes with commercial insurance plans: “Will my visits be covered, will they not?” We’ve been there. The guessing games and surprise bills are no fun.
Further, physical therapy treatment shouldn’t be limited by the constraints of insurance authorizations. At Practice Human, your treatment is based on collaborative decision making between you and your therapist, not what your insurance thinks you need or don’t need in your plan of care.

What our patients are saying
"I’ve worked with Caitlin for several months and it’s transformed my everyday life. She carefully prepares me for anything new, makes sure my form is right to avoid injury, and checks on my reaction afterward.
Training with Caitlin isn’t an activity separate from the rest of my life. I’m constantly aware that it affects every action I take during the week, whether hoisting my [relatively] heavy bags up onto the train’s luggage rack, pulling out cast iron pots in the kitchen, transplanting large shrubs or smallish trees in the garden, and so much more. Lift a 50-pound bag of sand? Not a problem.
Walking in the city is a joy – I can pace myself to hit the green lights instead of relying on jaywalking. I love having the confidence that I can take care of myself and want others to know they can, too. I’m 76, small-boned, female, and was headed to osteoporosis. Because of Caitlin’s strength training, I’m only going to be getting better, not worse, in the future."
Unlike traditional in-network clinics that will have you coming 2 times per week for 6-12 weeks, we do everything we can to solve your problem in as few visits as possible. We like to spread out the visits toward the end of your plan of care to once every two weeks, or once a month. This is how we transition you toward independence. You may be surprised how much time and money could be saved going out of network when you consider high copays and deductibles, time missed from work, and unnecessary time spent in therapy sessions.
Once again, you are welcome to schedule a free 15 minute discovery call with Dr. Casella. Give us a call Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM ET or email the "hello" address below to discuss your insurance coverage. We’ll work with you on pricing and find you a spot on the schedule.
Thank you for considering Dr. Casella and Practice Human for your physical care. We look forward to continuing the conversation!
