We Employ Exercises & Stretches To Relieve Pain & Restore Mobility

At Pristine Pain Center in Carteret, NJ, our professional physical therapists will design a customized care plan that combines low-impact exercises and stretching to reduce your pain while strengthening your muscles. They may also combine these low-impact exercises and stretches with heat pads to help reduce muscle inflammation and soreness.

Carteret, NJ residents who have recently been in an accident, experienced a sports injury, had a stroke, or experienced chronic back, shoulder, knee, or ankle pain can all benefit from the personalized care provided by our Pristine Pain Center physical therapists. Whether it’s low-impact exercises like walking, light swimming, water walking, or using ultrasound alongside heat and stretching, our solutions are designed to help you better manage your pain while also providing much-needed motor skills improvement.

Stretching exercises are extremely important in physical therapy. Our stretching exercises help improve muscle and joint flexibility while aiming to improve your range of motion (ROM). By gradually stretching high-pain areas, our physical therapists ensure your muscles become stronger and are less prone to tightening. Gradually stretching your muscles also helps to improve their strength. When combined with low-impact exercises, your ROM improves and your pain either subsides or is more easily managed.

 

Physical Therapy Should Not Be Painful

At no point should physical therapy ever be painful. Our customized care plans are designed so you and your Pristine Pain Center physical therapist can work together to reduce chronic pain, improve muscle tone, and extend your full range of motion. Throughout every second of a physical therapy session, our physical therapists will ensure you never experience pain in any low-impact exercises, stretches, or any situation where heat is applied.

The physical therapists at each of our 10 Pristine Pain Center locations are compassionate healers who take every necessary precaution to ensure you never experience any pain. At most, you may feel some tightness during a stretching session as the goal is to gradually increase the tension on your muscles to improve their strength. However, at any point where you feel slight discomfort, your physical therapist will be right there with you to adjust immediately.

If you have worked with other physical therapists where pain has occurred during a stretching session – or where your pain has increased after a session – then stop immediately. We will ensure that this never occurs at the Pristine Pain Center in Carteret, NJ.

 

Continue Physical Rehab at Home

Pristine Pain Center patients appreciate the thoroughness and detailed approach that our physical therapists take. They know that a physical therapy session will be planned well in advance. They also know that they’ll be provided with a ready-made physical rehabilitation plan they can perform in the comfort of their own home.

After a physical therapy session, your Pristine Pain Center physical therapist will provide you with a schedule of the stretches and low-impact exercises you should be doing before your next scheduled physical therapy session. This helps to shorten your recovery time while giving you the motivation to continue your rehab.
