MEET THE MAN BEHIND PELVIS NYC

Dr. Adam Gvili PT, DPT

I am Dr. Adam Gvili, I treat male pelvic floor dysfunction in New York City.

I went through a pelvic floor dysfunction myself. I had experienced all the invisible symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction such as hard flaccid, erectile dysfunction, abdominal pain, shooting pain into rectum, hypertonic pelvic floor, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and a lot more embarrassing symptoms to share. But I pulled all my courage to write this story not to humiliate myself but to empower YOU and give you HOPE that what you were experiencing can be a thing of the past and can be treated.

I struggled a lot looking for medical professionals who can help find a cure and heal me. And since most of the pelvic floor physical therapists treating pelvic floor disorders were actually females treating females, there was a disconnect when explaining my symptoms (i.e. peeing while standing at a urinal with a tight pelvic floor. Of course I can’t blame them if they cannot relate to a male patient. Don’t get me wrong, there is no doubt there are a lot of great female pelvic floor practitioners in New York City but very few are focused on men’s pelvic floor therapy. So I decided to treat men’s pelvic floor dysfunction as a MALE so that my clients could relate to me and we can normalize pelvic floor issues as a male and really create an open forum for men to literally talk about anything about men’s pelvic health.
Dr. Adam Gvili is a Board-Certified Physical Therapist who practices in New York City. Adam graduated from Brooklyn College with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Kinesiology. Adam received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Mercy College.

Adam always had a passion for encouraging people to be the best version of themselves. Helping people learn and understand their body better is just one of the many facets that encompass his whole-body approach to treatment. With experience in coaching and health & wellness, Adam believes that looking at the body as a kinetic chain is imperative to addressing a biomechanical insufficiency.

 

His methodology is simple, “find the weakest link in your foundation and build from there.”

Adam participated in competitive sports his whole life and he has seen his fair share of injuries. This is why he has such a passion for rehab and athlete health other than male pelvic floor therapy which is his expertise. For leisurely activity Adam plays weekly soccer in an amateur league to keep those competitive juices flowing. Adam also found his new love for cycling.

Excellent PT! If you want someone who knows his way around the body, look no more. Adam is a manual therapy wizard. This is not your average physical therapist. He uses a combination of movement and manual therapy to achieve success.

I am an avid cyclist and travel around the world. I have always had hip pain throughout training, until I met Adam. No one has helped me as much as he has.

Had a shoulder injury from over exerting myself during a Crossfit competition. I am a very active person and this was a huge blow to my day-day. I needed someone that was going to get me going as quick as possible and not try to scare me to come 5x/week for the rest of my life. Dr. Adam encouraged me to keep moving and to slowly build resilience. Through his guidance I am completely INJURY-FREE.

"Your body needs to be prepared to move and only once its ready, will you move well"

5 STARS ALL AROUND!!!! Amazing Clinician. Dr. Gvili takes his time with his patients and is thorough when it comes to assessment and treatment. I have been a runner my whole life and when I finally started weightlifting I injured myself.

Dr. Gvili reassured me that I wasn't broken and taught me how to move correctly so that I can prevent injury later on in life. His goal is to empower his patients so that they don't become dependent on him. Although, little does he know he has now has a patient for life.. I will only go to Dr. Gvili in the future... : )

Probably the coolest Doc I have ever met. He is the most caring, genuine and upfront person you will EVER meet. I went to see Adam as a last resort. If I couldn't get better with him, I was going to do a very invasive surgery that probably wasn't going to help me. Thank god is all I have to say. I would not wish pelvic pain on anyone. Adam is not only 1 of few males in the country that treats this condition but also went through it himself. I am writing this in hopes that everyone who seeks care for this issue can find it through him, as I really believe that this is the gold standard of care. I truly wish Dr. Adam Gvili nothing but the best as I believe that he will revolutionize the pelvic floor realm.... A million more thank you's!

There aren't enough words in the dictionary to describe the magic that this doctor has right here. He is a HEALER in every sense of the word. Dr. Gvili always took his time to get to know me as an individual and then broke my issue down meticulously like he was rearranging a puzzle. God Bless you! I hope everyone in NYC gets to see you because you are truly the best! : )

Adam is kind, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable since day 1. Unfortunately I have to return for another injury, but there is no one else I would rather call.
