Ron Kassab PT, DPT

Owner & Director

Ron graduated from Tel Aviv University with a BS in Physical Therapy in 1991 and moved to New York City that same year. He has devoted his professional career as a specialist in Orthopedics, Sports Medicine and Ergonomics. In 2007, he completed his doctorate degree at Touro College.

In 2008 Ron invented the ‘Back Me Unit,’ a unique ergonomic device created to promote proper seated posture for sedentary office workers. Lending his expertise to the sports world, Ron also developed a pre-season screening protocol for young and adult athletes. This protocol was successfully applied to screen hundreds of athletes to ‘expose’ weaknesses and mechanical imbalances that could potentially increase the risk for injuries and reduce their performance.

Ron is a certified APTA clinical instructor. Over the years, he has taught physical therapy students from several schools such as Stony Brook University, Long Island University and Touro College.

Ron combines his diversity of manual skills with a holistic approach that promotes postural and movement awareness along with extensive patient education. He is the owner and director of Ergo Physical Therapy, a private practice in Forest Hills, New York, and a frequent guest lecturer in Israel, lecturing on a variety of Sports Medicine, Injury Prevention, and Ergonomic topics.
