Physical Therapy

Our goal is to provide you the best possible physical care in the South Brunswick and Highland Park communities. For this reason, Dr. Grossman expanded Grossman Chiropractic & Physical Therapy to include world-class physical therapy in 2016. We believe that when health care professionals work together, the patient can appreciate the best possible results for excellent health.

What Is Physical Therapy?

“Physical therapy is a branch of medicine where we work on musculoskeletal dysfunctions and neurological impairment—the issues that are inhibiting the patient from getting back to their normal life,” said our Doctor of Physical Therapy Gabriella Trepper.

Restoring Optimal Function

The art behind healing with physical therapy is based on rehabilitative science, which is why at our practice, we utilize whatever tools we need to help you regain function caused by an injury.

Working together to achieve optimal healing, physical therapy patients often experience ideal results when their care is combined with unique chiropractic adjustments. With multiple services in one location delivered by experts in their fields, we provide our patients with more treatment options and ensure the best quality service.


What Does Physical Therapy Help?

The ultimate goal that surrounds physical therapy is to elevate your performance and function to where it was before an injury took place. This can involve the use of exercise, stretching or manual and technical therapies. When you choose our practice for your treatment, you’ll know that the approach taken addresses your goals and yourself as a person, not just the problem.

At our practice, patients have the opportunity to work one-on-one with the doctor, an experienced in-house physical therapist that crafts custom treatment plans to address your specific needs and goals.

What to Expect

You will be given intake paperwork to fill out along with some questionnaires that insurance needs to grade progress, as well as the doctor to see the progress.

At your first physical therapy appointment, you’ll meet with your doctor for a full evaluation of your physical state and problem area followed by your first treatment. If you have had prior scans or imaging done of the area in question, we recommend bringing them with you.

Plan on spending about one hour of your day at our office for this visit. In your coming appointments that follow, the doctor will continue to work with you in 30-minute, one-on-one sessions until you both feel sufficient progress has been made. We suggest wearing loose-fit, athletic clothing and tennis shoes to your appointments.

How Long Will I Need Physical Therapy?

Because we take a whole-body approach to health, the answer varies from person to person. Generally, if the injury you’re seeking treatment for is new, we’re able to help restore function at a much quicker pace (one to two months.)

For chronic conditions lasting upwards of six months or postsurgical cases, a longer treatment plan may be required due to additional injuries and unfavorable learned habits developed by the body. Whatever the case, we’ll make sure that you’re working toward your health goals at each appointment along the way.

How Does Physical Therapy Complement Chiropractic?

Chiropractic treatment helps to reset the joints and get them back to their proper alignment. Physical therapy is essential because it makes sure that the reset button stays there. If you don’t do the exercise to supplement it, things revert to where they were. So we make sure that the pain stays low and we keep things in the new position and a patient’s new alignment remains where it should be.

How Are You Protecting Patients From COVID-19?

During the coronavirus pandemic, we are taking extra measures to safeguard the health of our patients and staff. We’ll be using masks as appropriate and gloves. Your doctors wash their hands in between and then sanitize everything that the patient touches before someone else comes in.
