Treat Pain with Physical Therapy

If you have suffered an injury, or suffer from chronic pain, physical therapy can help you return to your prior level of function, and additionally, encourage activities and lifestyle changes to prevent further injuries from occurring. Physical therapy nearly always involves an exercise that is specifically designed to heal your condition. At Bergen Physical Medicine, we can develop an individualized physical therapy treatment plan to suit your needs.

Physical therapists such as ours are health care professionals who treat patients with conditions such as back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries. Goals of this treatment method are to reduce or eliminate pain, improve mobility, and improve your balance to prevent yourself from falling. In a physical therapy session, our doctor will have you stretching and performing low-impact aerobics training, strengthening exercises and pain relief exercises. Each patient responds differently to therapy, however, if you stick with it, you will reap the benefits.  

If you wish to inquire about physical therapy or to see if you are a candidate, please give us a call. To learn about the services we provide at the office, visit for more information. To schedule an appointment at Bergen Physical Medicine in Fairview, NJ, call 201-945-9993.
