       Teaneck Orthopaedic Physical Therapy, LLC, is a small physical therapist-owned private practice located in the northeast-side of Teaneck, NJ, right across Dollar Tree. This practice was established in May 2016 as our one and only. Our office will strive to provide an equitable time and care to help our patients recover normal or near-normal functional ADL capacity, recreational, sports, and work-related competence. This office only offers orthopedic (musculoskeletal) physical therapy and rehabilitation in pediatric (7 y/o and above), adult, and older adult patient populations.


       We are just one of the many small private practices owned by physical therapists who take pride in our one-on-one care system giving 100% attention to each and every patients until they get better. We are not similar to any high-patient-volume chain of physical therapy clinics that only care about the bottom line sacrificing quality of care and patient satisfaction.


       The sole provider/owner is Dr. Martin Samillano Malaluan, III, PT, DPT, OCS.  He is a licensed physical therapist in New Jersey and New York, and he is the grandson of the late Atty. Martin Fajardo Malaluan, Sr, lawyer, politician, and a World War II Veteran of the United States Army Forces in the Far East (USAFFE).  Dr. Malaluan has over 27 years in clinical experience in outpatient, inpatient, and home health care. Also, he briefly taught physical therapy at the academia from 1996-1999. He earned degrees in Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) from Dominican University New York, NY, in 2014 and Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy (BSPT) from Southwestern University, Philippines, in 1995. He also earned credits in Master of Arts in Teaching Physical Therapy from Southwestern University, Philippines, in 1997. And he is currently pursuing Master of Business Administration (MBA) focused in Healthcare Management at Thomas Edison State University (TESU) in Trenton, NJ. The TESU- MBA program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).


       Dr. Malaluan is an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS). He had taken certification examinations in the Strength and Conditioning administered by the NSCA and the Maitland-Australian Orthopedic Manual Therapy by the Maitland-Australian Physiotherapy Seminars. He practices eclectic physical therapy using orthopedic manual therapies (such as, Maitland-Australian, Mc Kenzie, Mulligan, strain counter-strain, muscle-energy technique, soft-tissue mobilization, PNF-stretching, instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization & cupping), functional strength training, functional movement assessment (FMA), Kinesiotaping, balance/proprioception re-training, and passive modalities (moist heat, cold, electrical modalities [TENS (brief-intense, normal, acupuncture-like, combined), interferential current, microcurrent, NMES, and therapeutic ultrasound]).


      Patients can now directly access physical therapy without an immediate referral or prescription from a physician except Medicare, Workmen's compensation, and Motor Vehicle Accident.  Please inform the office if you want to avail Direct Access. Check below if we take you insurance.

Important Reminders:


Please call the member services at the back of your insurance card to determine what will be your financial responsibility such as copay, co-insurance, and out-of-pocket maximum.

For motor vehicle accident and worker's compensation cases, we need information such as claim number, date of accident, name and phone number of the adjuster, and name and phone number of the attorney. If you switch to another lawyer, kindly inform the office immediately!

Very Important Notice:         

 * Our office is Tier 2 with UnitedHealthcare and UMR. It means that other than Tier 1, you will pay a copay or pay a copay at twice the regular amount  (e.g. UMR). Please verify with your insurance how much is your copay if you decide to do physical therapy with us . We also need you to help us obtain a precertification request for physical therapy by calling the member services of your insurance. Optum, UnitedHealthCare, and UMR have conflicting policies and they really deny payments to providers for failing to obtain the required precertification request ahead of time. Thank you!


 * Our office is non-participating or out-of-network with motor vehicle PIP Insurance. You may have to pay a copy or deductible for the service.
