With three locations in Old Bridge, Freehold and Matawan, NJ Spine and Wellness is your trusted source for physical therapy in New Jersey. While chiropractic care works to realign your spinal column, our physical therapy team is focused on restoring strength to the surrounding tissues and improving diminished range of movement. Our goal is to maximize your pain relief by providing the latest techniques and most comprehensive care services.
Physical therapy is an effective treatment for several conditions, including:
Our therapeutic treatment team includes several physical therapists who hold a Doctorate in this area of medicine. Therefore, they develop personalized treatments based on their expertise in orthopedics and kinesiology, or how the body works and moves. The core of our physical therapy sessions consists of directed exercises that gradually increase in difficulty. These are designed to help you safely rebuild your muscles and inner core strength, while slowly regaining your flexibility.
Do I Need Physical Therapy?
If you are suffering from any of the conditions listed below, physical therapy treatment might be an option for you. Additionally, if you do not have any of these conditions, but are experiencing any type of joint or muscle pain, we encourage you to reach out to us for a consultation.
You may also need to see a physical therapist if you have been in a car accident and notice persistent pain or a lack of mobility, even if an accident occurred at a previous time. Some injuries, like whiplash, may not cause immediate symptoms, but you may notice them over a period of hours, days or even weeks after an accident. If you do not seek immediate treatment, then consider treatment when you experience chronic and persistent symptoms that interfere with your lifestyle.
