Don't take our word for it, hear what our patients have had to say about the care we provide.


Our approach to Physical Therapy in Hoboken makes a difference because it helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physical Therapy or "medically directed rehab" helps restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Our Hoboken patients include individuals suffering from disc injuries, neck pain, lower back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, arthritis, IT band issues, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Our Hoboken physical therapists treat pre and post-surgical knee, ankle and shoulder strains, and tears.

Treatment often includes exercise; especially for patients who have been immobilized or who lack flexibility, strength, or endurance. Hoboken physical therapy helps encourage patients to use their muscles to increase their flexibility and range of motion. More advanced exercises focus on improving strength, balance, coordination, and endurance. The goal is to improve how an individual functions at work and at home.

FAQ's About Physical Therapy

Do I need to see a physician before I can receive physical therapy?

  • Yes. All physical therapy patients are prescribed treatment from a physician prior to their therapy being scheduled. At Hoboken Integrated we have physicians on our staff that can prescribe physical therapy if warranted.

What is the difference between chiropractor and a physical therapist?

  • We have both in our office. The chiropractors are primarily spine focused. They will do complete history, exams, can take X-rays in office, order MRI's and lab tests if needed and prescribe physical therapy. They do spinal manipulation, and rehabilitation. The physical therapists are experts in the muscles and joints. They test for and treat muscle imbalance, torn ligaments, and work synergistically with our chiropractors on spinal issues.

How Physical Therapy Works

When you arrive at our office, our physicians will take a thorough history, and evaluation of the entire body including posture and biomechanics, range of motion and joint mobility to find out the cause of pain or disability. You will then discuss treatment options and goals, so that we can customize a treatment plan catered to you.

Each session will last roughly one hour. The frequency of visits and the length of treatment is determined by the physician who prescribed the treatment.

The results are typically a result of the patient’s commitment. When the patient follows the plan, does their exercises as often as suggested and using the proper techniques, the treatment is typically very successful.

Before Your Appointment

It is a good idea to arrive at your physical therapy appointment properly dressed. It is best that you wear snug comfortable clothing that doesn't restrict your movement. It is also a good idea to bring your insurance card, a form of identification, the prescription that your physician gave you, and if needed, your co-pay.

Types of Physical Therapy We Offer

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body to release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins.

This is a great therapy if there is a spasm in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.

Therapeutic Exercise

Whether you're grinding in the office, recovering from an injury or straight out of surgery, The our doctors of physical therapy at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare design an exercise program targeting specific muscle groups to either meet your personal goals or counterbalance the kinks that come with the daily life.

Manual Therapy

Licensed hands only. Targeted massage, joint alignment, and manual stretching, combined with electric stimulation or to give you the ultimate feel-good aftermath.

Laser Therapy

Our physical therapists in Hoboken use a state of the art Aspen Class IV Laser.

Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation, Photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation. Unlike medications, laser therapy reduces pain without undesirable side effects.
