Physical Therapy

RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine Physical Therapy offers an individualized, holistic, and comprehensive approach to treatment. RZ’s Physical Therapy techniques and Rehabilitation programs are designed to offer a holistic progressive strategy to treating pain, injury and chronic conditions without the need for surgical intervention. We implement a “whole body” approach that is effective in addressing all physical influences throughout the body. This allows us to pinpoint the exact source of pain or injury, which is crucial in terms of successfully prescribing the proper treatment, improving overall strength/flexibility and preventing future injuries. RZ’s Physical Therapists will diagnose and create an individualized treatment plan that may include activity modifications, therapeutic exercises, manual therapy techniques, chiropractic adjustments, pain medication, and/or orthopedic injection procedures.

Recovery Stretch Therapy

RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine offers a medically designed and supervised Recovery Stretch that focuses on the fascia and joint capsule to achieve optimal strength, flexibility, pain relief and performance. It is a pain-free recovery method of stretching developed by our team of multidisciplinary physicians and is exclusive to RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine.

RZ’s Medically supervised Recovery Stretch focuses on a key part of the body that is often overlooked, the fascia. The fascia is the vast network of connective tissue that runs through the entire body. It surrounds muscles, nerves, bones, joints and organs. Many injuries and loss of flexibility, including range of motion, involve the fascia and may cause actual physical pain. The tightness in the fascia encourages unnatural motions or postures that increase the odds of minor injuries and unwanted pressure on the nervous system. Those minor injuries, in turn, may result in more unnatural motions.

RecoveryZone’s medically supervised Recovery Stretch may help reduce these pains by releasing tension in the fascia. The natural increase in flexibility will help end those unnatural motions and relieve underlying stresses in the body. Lingering tightness or tension anywhere in the body decreases circulation. By reducing tightness and tension, an RZ medically supervised Recovery Stretch will improve blood flow which in turn accelerates recovery from exercise by allowing more blood to reach the muscles faster, which improves toxin removal and makes the road to recovery a little more direct.

Sports Medicine

RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine recognizes that Sports medicine isn’t just for athletes. It is for anyone that does not want physical ailments/pain interfering with daily activities. RZ offers Sports Medicine to world class athletes and weekend warriors alike . RecoveryZone’s team of physicians implement proven techniques and treatments that are both medically and holistically based. RZ’s therapies are backed by solid research, aimed at restoring function, alleviating pain and promoting healing.

Prehab and Postsurgical Rehabilitation

At RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine in Wall, New Jersey we strongly believe that physical therapy is not only for our post-surgery patients. Prehabilitation Therapy is extremely beneficial for those preparing for surgery. Just as rehabilitation helps patients recover following surgery, prehabilitation helps our patients prepare for surgery and frequently leads to shorter recovery time.According to the National Institutes of Health, participating in Prehabilitation therapy will not only enhance your postoperative results but also minimize recovery time. Studies have shown that beginning Prehabilitation physical therapy a month or so before surgery can significantly shorten recovery time. By working with our physical therapist and creating an individualized Prehabilitation plan, you will create a strong foundation for rapid recovery that will likely lead to decreased down time following surgery.

Functional Rehabilitation

RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine prescribes functional rehabilitation as soon as a patient’s injury is poised for treatment. Our distinctive approach to Functional Rehabilitation, which is a specialized type of physical therapy, utilizes a multi-phase customized progression of rehabilitative steps. Our physicians begin by controlling inflammation and minimizing pain. Their second objective is to restore/increase range of motion with the final step and intention to restore muscle strength, power and endurance. RecoveryZone, Orthopedic Spine and Sports Medicine’s functional rehabilitation, implements three-dimensional movements to strengthen isolated, previously injured muscles. The process prepares the whole body to return to daily activities or sports, stronger and more flexible.

EPAT® Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology

RecoveryZone Orthopedic Spine and Sports Medicine offers EPAT at their Wall, New Jersey location. The word “extracorporeal” comes from two latin roots: extra (outside) and corp (body). So, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT) is noninvasive as it happens completely outside of the body. EPAT requires no needles, no surgery and no downtime. Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is a form of ESWT (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy) which is an evidence-based, emerging, proven treatment option for patients suffering from acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. EPAT® uses acoustic pressure waves to safely increase metabolism and blood flow, stimulating / enhancing healing of the injury. The microtrauma induced triggers a cascade of inflammatory factors (such as cytokines and chemokines) that help regenerate the damaged tissues. These inflammatory factors are essential for healing and are present at high levels in acute injuries, but diminish or cease to exist over time in chronic injuries. Think of EPAT® as a way of pushing the “reset” button on healing.

Whole Body Cryotherapy

RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine is the only facility in New Jersey utilizing Medical Grade Nitrogen for Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments. Medical Whole Body cryotherapy is offered in our Wall, New Jersey facility and serves Monmouth and Ocean County and is available to patients and non patients. Cryotherapy promotes anti-inflammatory properties, which decrease soreness in a postworkout state. Full-body cryotherapy can do more in three minutes than a 60-minute massage. That enables you to recover from your workouts, no matter the intensity. Benefits include, inflammation relief, reduction of muscle soreness, less pain from sore joints and blood flow restoration. For competitive athletes, ice baths are the traditional method used to recover from a workout or competition. However, they require recovery time—up to a day before they can resume practice. But with whole-body cryotherapy, athletes recover in less time so they can resume their training faster.

Localized Cryotherapy

RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine offers medically supervised Localized Cryotherapy. RZ’s Localized Cryotherapy therapy is used to alleviate pain, dramatically reduce inflammation and expedite recovery. Localized Cryotherapy allows for safer and more effective treatment and has significant benefits to traditional ice packs and ice baths. The medically cryogenically cooled air penetrates the deeper layers of tissue, thereby increasing blood circulation and improved range of motion, something that traditional ice packs are unable to provide and making the road to recovery a little more direct.

Face and Neck Recovery Therapy

RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine recommends cryotherapy as a holistic and safe solution for inflammation in any part of the body. This principle is no different when dealing with facial or neck swelling, blotchiness, or even inflammatory skin issues. RZ Cryotherapy Face and Neck Recovery Therapy alleviates many of these inflammatory skin issues with no pain or downtime. The cryotherapy face and Neck Recovery therapy is customized and incorporates a gentle facial lymphatic drain to facilitate recovery.

Therapeutic Recovery Cupping

RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine offers Therapeutic Recovery Cupping. While traditional cupping is a form of alternative medicine that dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures, RZ’s Therapeutic Recovery Cupping makes the “old school” way of cupping obsolete. RecoveryZone’s Therapeutic Recovery Cupping was created by our team of physicians and is medically supervised. Our Therapeutic Recovery Cupping Therapy is exclusive to RZ and focuses on recovery/pain management and is medically superior to “cupping” offered at spas, massage parlors or cupping kits purchased online.

Muscle Compression Therapy

Dynamic compression increases range of motion and leads to improved athletic performance. RecoveryZone Orthopedic, Spine and Sports Medicine is proud to be partnered with Normatec and implements their compression therapy as part of a customized and indualized patient treatment plan.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Normally, oxygen is transported throughout the body by red blood cells. By using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), oxygen becomes a gas and is then dissolved into all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone and can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. This way, oxygen reaches damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. This increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces inflammation and allows new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas. It’s a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment.
