We Use Therapeutic Exercise To Improve Strength & Flexibility

Physical therapy in Freehold, NJ and the surrounding communities utilizes specific exercises and activities put together by a physical therapist to help you regain mobility and live pain-free. Your customized treatment plan will include range-of-motion, strengthening, stretching, and aerobic exercises tailored to your needs and abilities. Therapeutic exercise improves flexibility, endurance, balance, coordination, and more.

Our physical therapists in Paramus, NJ, use exercise techniques like:

  • Resistance training with weights, resistance bands, or your own bodyweight to build muscle strength.
  • Stretching tight muscles and joints through techniques like static stretching or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.
  • Balance and coordination drills using equipment like balance boards, foam rollers, or stability balls.
  • Postural correction exercises to improve alignment and take pressure off sore spots.
  • Functional movement patterns that mimic your everyday activities.
  • Cardiovascular training with options like walking, biking, or swimming for improved stamina.

We focus on restoring proper movement mechanics and strength in your daily routines and activities, so you can function at your best whether exercising, working, doing household chores, or enjoying hobbies and leisure time. Regular exercise boosts circulation, releases natural pain-relieving endorphins, and prevents future injuries. We provide guidance and programs, so you can continue your therapeutic exercise routine independently.

Physical Therapy or Surgery?

For many orthopedic conditions like ligament tears, spine injuries, or knee and shoulder problems, physical therapy in Paramus, NJ is often just as effective as surgery but without the risks and lengthy recovery. Starting with conservative PT first can help avoid surgery altogether. Physical therapy aims to strengthen the muscles supporting your joints to provide natural stability without invasive procedures.

Your professional Paramus physical therapist will determine if your condition can be resolved through physical therapy or may require surgery. If surgery is needed, we offer pre-habilitation PT to get you in optimal shape pre-operation which facilitates better outcomes post-surgery. We also provide rehab PT after surgery to help you recover safely and quickly. Throughout your treatment, we work closely with your doctor to ensure coordinated care.
