Yvonne Johnson, PT

Program Manager, Medical Fitness Program, Center for Health and Healing at Mount Sinai Beth Israel

Yvonne Johnson, PT, Program Manager of the Medical Fitness Program at the Center for Health and Healing, has over nineteen years of clinical experience as a physical therapist, with extensive expertise in musculoskeletal and orthopedic assessment and treatment. She has developed injury-specific therapeutic interventions and implemented them into rehabilitation programs for routine and complex sports-related injuries in professional and collegiate athletes, and every day “weekend warriors.”

She believes the mind-body connection plays an integral role in healing, and that a comprehensive mixture of patient-specific traditional exercise programs, along with soft issue techniques, such as myofascial release, bridge the gap between a good and excellent outcome. Yvonne is extremely passionate about her craft and feels there is no challenge too big, as long as, the patient is willing to work hard towards their recovery.

Yvonne has been the physical therapist for several of The New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets, New York Liberty, The Harlem Wizards and The U.S. Women's National Rugby Teams.
