Bryant Park Physical Therapy, founded by Aleksandra Setcka PT, is a boutique facility that offers a full range of services to patients with orthopedic / musculoskeletal conditions and those looking to recover from surgery or traumatic / sports injuries. With over a decade of experience, Aleksandra carefully crafts an individualized treatment plan for each of her patients that combines manual therapy and Pilates based exercises (including Pilates Reformer). A strong believer in holistic approach to physical therapy, Aleksandra broadens her focus to not only treat the area of injury, but to address the underlying musculoskeletal conditions that contributed to it.  She helps patients understand the core of the issue and educates them on the best practices to avoid future injuries, manage their pain, and increase their strength and overall well-being.


The modern, state-of-the art facility is conveniently located in the heart of Manhattan, just steps away from Grand Central Station. This beautifully decorated, sun-filled office consists of a large exercise room featuring the Pilates Reformer machine and a manual therapy room equipped in advanced technology tools to enhance the treatment. All sessions are one-on-one to ensure efficient use of the patients’ time with Aleksandra and to speed up the recovery process.


Aleksandra Setcka has more than a decade of experience working with patients with a wide range of conditions. She holds a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from Collegium Medicum in Poland and is extensively trained in the areas of the neurological, muscular, and skeletal systems.

To ensure that she offers her patients the most up-to-date treatment techniques, Aleksandra puts emphasis on continuous education. She has completed several courses focusing on myofascial movement, functional evaluation and manipulation of the extremities and spine, and advanced training in complex hip and spino-pelvic conditions. She holds an advanced certificate in Pilates and Pilates Reformer techniques.

Aleksandra is committed to providing the highest quality of personalized service within the scope of physical therapy, aligned with the holistic philosophy of treating the whole patient.
