Physical therapy soon after a workplace injury is the best way to aid recovery, reduce pain, and lessen nerve damage. Prompt physical therapy from doctors experienced in workers’ compensation speeds the healing process and helps injured workers return to their jobs sooner.
When searching “workers’ comp doctors near me,” you will find Navesink Rehab in Red Bank, NJ. Our physicians take the time to learn about your injury and do a full work-up to devise a tailored treatment plan. No two workplace injuries look the same, and we keep that in mind during every appointment.
Your treatment plan may include “homework” of exercises to do every day between physical therapy appointments. Physical therapy creates gradual improvements over time, and doing the exercises daily is a great way to regain strength and shorten recovery time.
When you experience a workplace injury, our doctors can help with your recovery journey and provide your employer with the proper testing to prove you are mentally and physically fit to return to work. Physical therapy, along with acupuncture treatment and massage, creates a thorough treatment plan that allows you to live life to the fullest without relying on daily medication as a form of pain management.
To start your healing journey, please contact our clinic by filling out the online form or by calling Navesink Rehab in Red Bank, NJ, at 732-530-7700.
Our doctors accept most insurance plans, including workers’ compensation, no-fault, and PIP (personal injury protection). Same-day appointments may be available.
Typically, you do not need a diagnosis or testing like an MRI to schedule physical therapy. A physical therapist can assess many issues, provide treatment exercises, and develop a treatment plan at your appointment.
Physical therapy can help accelerate the healing process with gentle exercises that help you rebuild muscle tissue and reduce inflammation.
You should stop going to physical therapy if you stop improving without healing. Physical therapy helps you make small improvements along the way, but if you don’t see any improvements in many weeks or months, your body may have reached the end of what it can accomplish.
When your muscles have inflammation and other damage, physical therapy could make them sore for a day or two after treatment. Much like going to the gym, the soreness you feel is the result of your muscles regaining strength.
