About Dr. Jonas Bjune

Dr. Bjune received his first degree in Physiotherapy with Honors from Oxford Brookes University, Oxford UK, where he graduated as valedictorian of the Healthcare Faculty. On the completion of his degree, he accepted a job on the south coast of England practicing and running outpatient orthopedic clinics with a focus on manual therapy. He continued his career by moving to New York City and completed his doctorate of Physical Therapy at New York University. His previous experience in England and his years of practice on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, along with his accrual of skilled outpatient musculoskeletal treatment have afforded Jonas to now practice as an independent practitioner serving the Manhattan area.

  • “Dr Jonas Bjune treated me for more than a year, after a reverse shoulder replacement and a subsequent carpal tunnel release on my right arm and hand. Dr. Bjurne is highly competent, efficient, generous with his time and always caring. He listens, is attentive to specific issues and needs, and treats each patient as a priority. After experiencing 5 years of pain and discomfort with osteoarthritis, I can certainly say that he is the best physical therapist I have had.”

  • “I have been in Physical Therapy 2-3 times a week with Dr Bjune  for the past year and he has transformed my life. I have suffered with lower back pain for many years which had left me somewhat disabled despite pain management and prior physical therapy. The combination of exercise and manual therapy has left me stronger with drastically improved posture and above all , without pain. I am a psychotherapist in private practice for decades on the upper east side and have now referred several of my patients to Dr Bjune with astonishing results. One of my patients who was walking with a cane no longer needs it. The adolescent daughter of another patient suffered for years with foot and leg pain. None of the doctors or physical therapists she saw were able to diagnose the problem and as too often happens, they concluded that her pain was psychological. Dr Bjune immediately diagnosed the source of her pain and in a relatively short time she is no longer suffering! I would unreservedly recommend Dr Bjune for anyone who is experiencing physical pain. He is an outstanding clinician and a wonderful human being”
