Keywords: Rehabilitation, Physical Therapy, Physical Therapists

Athletes are at an increased risk of acute and chronic injuries due to the physical and mental demands that are placed upon them. MSI Physical Therapy has highly trained physical therapists, many of whom were Division I athletes themselves, who are familiar with the various crucial movements required by different sports.

The physical therapists conduct a comprehensive evaluation for each athlete, examining for flexibility, core strength, muscle imbalances, agility, technique, and other specific requirements for their sport. The therapist then utilizes their advanced training in a broad array of manual techniques combined with sport-specific functional tasks to ensure that the athlete receives an individualized sport-specific rehabilitation protocol. This comprehensive rehabilitation and training help to ensure that an athlete is able to return to their optimal level of performance.

Physical Therapy Rehabilitation after ACL injury or surgery

Rehabilitation after surgery for an ACL tear is a lengthy process and returning to normal function can take months. Our certified physical therapists will work with you to develop a rehabilitation program after an ACL injury or surgery that will rebuild strength and regain full range of motion and full function.

Physical Therapy for Rotator Cuff Injury & Post Rotator Cuff Surgery

Many sports, especially those involving throwing motions, put the rotator cuff under a lot of stress. This often results in an injury to the rotator cuff that could keep an athlete from participating in their sport because of pain, decreased strength and decreased motion. The goal of physical therapy rehabilitation at MSI Physical Therapy for a rotator cuff injury or surgical repair is to reduce inflammation, strengthen the shoulder musculature, and restore normal joint mechanics and range of motion.

Post Therapy Maintenance Program | New Jersey

MSI has a post therapy maintenance program for those patients who wish to continue an exercise and strengthening program once their physical therapy is complete. Most gyms are not equipped with the proper machines and apparatuses necessary for the maintenance of a patient’s specific therapeutic needs. They are not as aware of most medical conditions or the treatments necessary for these conditions as our physical therapists are.


Postural/Ergonomic Assessment & Education | Good Posture Techniques

Studies have shown that an employee who is educated about good posture techniques has a better chance of avoiding strains at work and reducing the risk of injury. A physical therapist will conduct an evaluation on an employee’s work site to identify the beginning stages of potential musculo-skeletal injury. Our therapists will then educate the patient on proper posture and techniques to decrease the risk of injury.
