National medical practice Eden Health announces the incorporation of physical therapy as part of its comprehensive healthcare services for Eden Health patients, according to a news release.

Members receive dedicated, 60-minute, one-on-one care from physical therapists either virtually or at Eden’s FiDi (NYC), The Park at Connell (NJ), and other soon-to-be-announced locations. Members can also communicate with their physical therapist directly for ad-hoc advice and guidance via the Eden Health app for all of their musculoskeletal needs.

Eden Health’s standard of care for its members is fully comprehensive and collaborative, encompassing primary care, behavioral health, and now, physical therapy.

Members can easily have a physical therapy appointment set up within 48 hours. Members can receive a referral through an Eden Health primary care physician in person or virtually or they can have direct access by messaging an Eden Health Care Team member to arrange an appointment.

Members can also communicate with a physical therapist directly for ad-hoc musculoskeletal advice and guidance via the Eden Health app. Additionally, the Eden Health blog offers videos of simple exercises and stretches that members can perform in their office or home, the release continues.

“Physical therapy, behavioral care, and primary care all work in concert for an individual’s overall health and quality of life, and Eden Health is leading the way providing this robust collaborative care.”

— Matt McCambridge, CEO and co-founder of Eden Health

The physical therapist team at Eden Health includes manually trained Fellowship therapists from such organizations as NAIOMT and The University of Illinois-Chicago, which collaborated with Northwestern. The app also allows for the same elite fellow-trained therapist to provide convenient virtual care to patients in the office or from home.

Dr. Kevin Kenefick was the one of the original architects of the physical therapy program at Eden Health, and he has recently been named the Director of Physical Therapy. Dr. Kenefick is a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy in New York and New Jersey and received his Doctor’s degree from University of Scranton. He is a certified manual therapist (CMPT) and is part of the top 1% of physical therapists who is a Fellow-in-Training at NAIOMT. Prior to joining Eden Health, he was a Clinical Director at Professional Physical Therapy.

“I’m honored to help create an elite physical therapy team that is integrated into the primary care for Eden Health patients. Combining the best of both in-person and virtual healthcare experiences is what not only makes Eden special, but makes Eden’s PT offering unique.”

— Dr Kevin Kenefick
