What does physical therapy entail?

It’s an important question, and the answer will help you understand how physical therapy can improve your ability to move and function, while also benefiting your general fitness and health.

Rehabilitation includes a variety of common PT techniques and treatments that are specifically designed to address injuries sustained by the structures of the musculoskeletal system: bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and cartilage.

Common PT Techniques

  • Hot/Cold packs can prepare muscles for exercise and manipulation or reduce inflammation to make movement less painful
  • Electrical stimulation activates nerves in damaged tissues to help develop strength and stability
  • Ultrasound generates sound waves that are transferred to a specific part of the body using a probe. The sound waves travel deep into tissue creating gentle heat
  • Medical massage is an outcome-based massage that applies specific treatments targeted to physical therapy to help muscles function
  • Strength and stability exercises are used to help the body reestablish the proper function of the musculoskeletal tissues
  • Stretching tight muscles and joints can help relieve pain and get patients back to their previous range of motion
Other than these common techniques, physical therapists are also experts in “the science of healing and the art of caring.

“Before I started physical therapy at Twin Boro I was on crutches for almost three months. Twin Boro helped me in so many ways. Twin Boro taught me how to walk again and sooner than I expected. They cut my recovery time in half and gave me my life back.”

“I loved being a patient at your facility because your therapist went by my and the doctors needs. I was there not only at the old location in somerset but also I went to the new location to in North Brunswick, which I loved it was bigger and better. All of the therapist are so friendly and nice and treated you with respect. I was treated by not only Melvie but also Nick and both are so professional and gentle of the way they did my treatments. If I ever need to have physical therapy in the future I will definitely come back to your facility for you are very professional and well organized. I have been to other places but your facility beats them all.”
