Quote - "Every condition effects each individual person in a unique way." "There are numerous variables, hidden variables, that come into play when helping someone rehab." "The key is to examine how one's physical condition is effecting them, not only physically, but also emotionally and socially; and determine what course of action works best for that individual person." "This cannot be done in a setting in which the patient is placed on what is tantamount to an assembly-line in a factory to perform a predetermined, one-for-all treatment regimen which lasts for a predetermined time period." "Not everyone can do what is best for them in just 45 minutes." "What is good for one may not, and often isn't, good for all."
"We at Professional Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation, PC are committed to providing The Best Physical Therapy Services Available Anywhere!" "Many facilities claim to be just as committed, however, we don't just 'talk-the-talk', we 'walk-the-walk' as cliche' and perhaps as corny as that may sound. "We have been growing fast by word-of-mouth alone." "You may have seen our advertisements regarding the ATM2 & Spinal Decompression / Traction." "We purchased two more fabulous machines so we have every possible plausible option to properly care for our patients." "We have also become the only South Jersey Shore area Rehabilitation facility to provide ASTYM!" "ASTYM is a very effective tool to get RELIEF from the most chronic, stubborn and painful conditions involving the soft tissues (e.g., Tendinosis, Tennis Elbow, Plantar Fasciitis, etc..). "Bells & Whistles" are never important in a physical therapy facility, it's the therapist who is important." "The is not just 'Bells & Whistles!" "The ATM2, ASTYM & Spinal Decompression/Traction have proven to be extremely valuable and it is worth the expense to have yet other great options for treating pain!"
