Our Monmouth County physical therapy clinic will work to identify and maximize an individual’s movement potential by utilizing the four main spheres of physical therapy which include promotion, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. We work directly with our patients, their family members, and primary care giver to identify movement potential and sett achievable goals to return to good health.

New Jersey Orthopedic Physical Therapy

Our orthopedic physical therapy arm of Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation works with our patients to treat and manage an array of injuries to the musculoskeletal system including sports related injury and arthritis.

New Jersey Pediatric Physical Therapy

Physical therapy for children is extremely important to prevent long-term health problems. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation works with children and their parents to identify and treat early detected health issues. Our pediatric physical therapists treat a spectrum of diseases and disorders whether congenital, developmental, or skeletal. The main goal at the end of the day is to increase motion, coordination, and strength. We will also implement a plan to strengthen endurance and fine tune motor skills.

Pediatric Treatment of Torticollis with Physical Therapy

Torticollis, which is also referred to as Wry Neck, is a condition seen in children where the head is tilted to one side while the chin is raised to the other side. Torticollis is frequently a result of trauma from birth where damage to a muscle in the neck, back, or head occurs. This causes the child to experience tightness of a certain muscle that pulls his or her head to one side while simultaneously bringing the face in an opposite direction. While trauma to the specific muscles at birth is in many cases the initial cause of this condition, most children are not treated immediately. This non-treatment can cause neighboring muscles to tighten as well which creates additional problems for the adolescent. Untreated torticollis can lead to a number of problems including facial asymmetry, spinal misalignments, and muscular development issues.

Torticollis can also occur in older children from other problems such as trauma to the neck, ear infections, or the usage of certain drugs. There are a good amount of additional causes of torticollis in older children but are considered to be very rare. As imagined, torticollis can be significantly debilitating to the child’s development and overall daily function. This condition can limit the child’s ability to move, hear, and function normally. The first few years in a child’s development are extremely crucial and early treatment of torticollis will be beneficial to the child’s overall wellness and life balance.

Physical therapy can help heal torticollis in children. At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, our Monmouth county physical therapists can help your child overcome torticollis and put him or her back on track towards good health and wellness. Our physical therapists will create a program which includes stretching, massage, and physical exercise to pinpoint the targeted muscles causing torticollis and help reverse the condition before it becomes a larger problem.

Pediatric Treatment for Scoliosis with Physical Therapy

Pediatric scoliosis is a condition where the spine is curved in adolescents. There are three main categories of scoliosis. The first category of the condition is Infantile Scoliosis which occurs in children less than 3 years old. Juvenile Scoliosis, which is the second category of the condition, occurs in children between 3 and 10 years of age. The final category of scoliosis is called Adolescent Scoliosis and occurs from 10 years of age and older.

Scoliosis can also be effectively treated with physical therapy. The condition of scoliosis is complex and no two patients with the condition are exactly the same. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation understands this and as a result, provides a customized physical therapy plan for each of its Monmouth County scoliosis patients.

Each patient coping with scoliosis has a different curvature of the spine and our Red Bank physical therapists will put together a program to treat that exact curvature. Our Monmouth County physical therapists are highly experienced in working with posture and movement disorders including scoliosis. Physical therapy for our scoliosis patients will consist of a designed regiment of traction, stretches, exercise, chiropractic manipulation, and electrical stimulation. All of these techniques will be done in a comfortable and pain free manner so that the child is receptive and rejuvenated by the treatment. Relaxation is a major key to a successful physical therapy program especially when children are involved. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation understands this and puts the comfort of our adolescent patients to the forefront of our treatment programs.
