Adam Tanner-Hill, PT, Clinic Director
Adam is from Melbourne, Australia, where he obtained his degree in physiotherapy at La Trobe University. His passion for understanding the human body led him to obtain a second degree in physiology from University of Melbourne. His physiotherapy orthopedic program was based in the Maitland approach, which concentrates on strong evaluative techniques followed by advanced manual therapy and retesting to determine efficacy of the different approaches. He is also skilled in Rock Taping (Kinesiotaping) and IASTM (instrument-assisted soft tissue massage) in the Graston style, which is reported to help reduce fascial restrictions and facilitate better neuromuscular function.
The Maitland Australian Approach intentionally and gently provokes the patient’s actual symptoms using carefully graded osteokinematic (physiological) and arthrokinematic (accessory) passive mobilization. This approach is recognized worldwide as an efficient, safe and gentle way to evaluate and treat the orthopedic patient to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, restore movement, and maximize function.
Adam worked in Australia and Canada before his career took him to the United States (New York and California). In New York, he worked at the prestigious Center for Musculo-skeletal Care, which is part of NYU Langone Medical Center/Hospital for Joint Diseases. He has worked with thousands of patients with many different conditions over his 24-year career as a physiotherapist.
Adam’s expertise is in postural and movement analysis in conjunction with manual therapy as the foundation of the rehabilitation program following injury or disability. His interest in physical wellness is reflected personally in weightlifting and past participation in triathlons.
