In Perspective: Award-winning Physical Therapist, Priyanka Jariwala 


If you are recovering from a recent injury or illness, physical therapy may help you get back on your feet faster. In fact, 41% of people who use alternative treatment methods say physical therapy is, by far, the most effective. When choosing this treatment option, though, you need to go in for the best. Priyanka Jariwala PT, MS is an award-winning physical therapist, and she might be just the right specialist for you.

Priyanka specializes in orthopedics, sports-related injuries, and human kinesiology. She works to alleviate pain, rehabilitate damaged joints, and restore range of motion in her patients. “People come to me with various issues and complexities,” she explains. “My work restores mobility, flexibility, strength, and range of motion.”

Priyanka practices at Performance Rehabilitation, a physical therapy center based in Yonkers, New York. With Priyanka’s help, the clinic has received many positive reviews from clients.

A former client of the clinic, Deleene, posted this review:

“Staff is very polite and helpful. My therapist, Priyanka, and her assistant, Mel are the best! They not only care about the injured body parts they are treating, but also your well-being in general. Some of the exercises are challenging, but the outcome is rewarding. I can attest to that. I highly recommend Performance Rehabilitation to everyone who needs therapy and is looking for great results.”

Another former client, Florentino, had this to say: 

“My therapy was excellent. I feel I certainly benefited from it. Everyone was kind and friendly, a special A-OK to Priyanka and Mel. I would recommend Performance Rehab to anyone. You made me feel comfortable.”

For their efforts, Performance Rehabilitation was named the Best Physical Therapy Clinic in Yonkers for 2021 by Expertise.com. However, Priyanka believes her center is just getting started.

“I am not slowing down anytime soon,” she reveals. “If people need a hand, I will be there to lend it. I was raised to believe good begets good. While I am not one for clichés, my instinct is to be the difference I want to see in the world.”

Priyanka’s colleagues have described her as motivated, client-focused, and caring. That explains why she earned a spot on ThreeBestRated’s list of Top 3 Physical Therapists in Yonkers. “Honestly, I felt honored and humbled to make that list,” she remembers. “I will always give this job my 100%, every day. I feel my clients deserve that much.” 

On the significance of the physical therapy industry, Priyanka believes it has a lot to offer society. “I feel it is an important part of healthcare. I think physical therapists, in general, play a huge role in the daily lives of their patients. That is why I am eager to participate in more education programs to promote the profession and share the importance of the work that we do. I would also like to be a part of an outreach program to spread awareness about common conditions which can benefit from a successful physical therapy rehabilitation.”

Priyanka believes the sky’s the limit for her physical therapy career. “People often ask me what my plan for the future is. I always tell them that my plan is to keep doing what I do,” she says. “I have a great passion for this profession and believe there is so much more I can do with it.”
