Executive Director & Founder

Since 2002, when Dr. Rudy Gehrman established The Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Clinic in Brooklyn Heights, he has become one of the most sought after and well-respected sports medicine chiropractors in New York City.

In 2009, he founded Physio Logic and combined his talent and expertise with a multidisciplinary team of devoted practitioners. This integrated model strives to treat patients holistically through a team approach.

It was Dr. Gehrman’s own experience with injuries and rehab while competing in collegiate hockey, downhill skiing, mountain biking, weight lifting and endurance races that inspired him to pursue a degree in Chiropractic at New York Chiropractic College, following an undergraduate degree in pre-med biology. Dr. Gehrman has a keen, first hand knowledge of the body at work and understands the paths to pain-free function, flexibility and strength. Over the years, he has expanded his skills and experience treating a wide range of sports injuries affecting all from the active senior to the adolescent athlete, including professional athletes from a variety of sports (NBA, NFL, NHL, MMA, PSA, PGA, professional endurance athletes, extreme sports skiers, skateboarders, BMX,  professional power lifters and body builders).

Dr. Gehrman not only practices traditional manipulations and mobilizations but also utilizes several soft tissue techniques during treatment: Active Release Technique (ART), instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization and sports medical massage.

His passion for corrective exercise, functional medicine/nutrition, regenerative medicine/stem cell therapy and education, both personally and for his patients, allows Dr. Gehrman to bring the most current and innovative treatments to his practice.

Post-graduate courses include FAKTR-PM (Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion), Cox Flexion Distraction, McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, and Spinal Decompression.
