When it comes to staying healthy, every little bit of preparation helps in the eyes of Kristaps Porzingis.

Porzingis, 22, is trying something new. His longtime Spanish physiotherapist will live in New York for this season, as The Post reported Friday.

Porzingis indicated his physio will travel to road games, too — on Porzingis’ dime. His name is Manolo Valdivieso, who worked with Porzingis all the way back to his Spanish League games in Seville. Valdivieso also worked with him all offseason in Europe as the 7-foot-3 Latvian made a point to stay away from New York.

After missing 26 games in his first two seasons, Porzingis will make this adjustment in an effort to improve durability.

“He’s been with me [for a while], we’ll keep working together, keep helping me out,’’ Porzingis said following Sunday’s open practice at the Garden. “He’ll be wherever I am. He knows me the best, knows my body the best. He worked with me when I was 17, 18 years old.’’
