Happy World PT day!
Thanksgiving may look a little different for a lot of us this year but please remember that different doesn’t have to mean sad! One of my favorite thanksgiving meals wasn’t on the “right” day, with the “right” foods, or even all the “right” people but it embodied the spirit of the holiday to the fullest: caring, sharing, and making sure the people you love know how much they mean to you.

I’ve lived in a lot of places and have spent a few holidays across the country from the rest of my family. On my first thanksgiving “alone” at law school I volunteered with friends, brined and roasted a turkey, and started a tradition consisting of:
1. Baking apple crisp;
2. Putting up the first of my Christmas decorations; &
3. Falling asleep watching The Grinch next to an empty little apple crisp ramekin.
(I don’t revive the tradition every year, but it’s nice to have a relatively simple, comforting routine I can easily restart whenever it seems like the rest go the day hasn’t been what I would have liked it to be.)

I hope that Thanksgiving ends up being a beautiful holiday for you however or whenever you celebrate it, and am so thankful for friends near and far who have helped me navigate this interesting year, including Mike Ryan, who in my opinion one of the most gifted physical therapists in New Jersey and has been helping me get motion back in my arm after a complicated elbow surgery.

PS) Don’t sleep on the charitable match these guys are offering below for the Center For Food Action! www.cfanj.org It’s a better deal than any Black Friday sale people would be crazy enough to start a stampede for, and giving back this year is more important than ever. Consider chipping in what you otherwise would have spent on travel expenses or a trip to the store it you can, and have an awesome thanksgiving!
Specialized Physical Therapy provides hands-on care to treat the source of pain and allow you to independently manage your symptoms. Book with them now on betterpt.com!
If you want a knowledgeable , caring, professional facility for therapy you must go to Specialized Physical Therapy. I have worked in this field and know exactly what it takes to make a great therapist. Mike has always treated me and currently for a hip replacement. I also had Dan who is equally impressed me.
You will get personalized hands on care. They will communicate to you explaining exactly what is going on with your body and how things work. They welcome questions because the more you communicate the more knowledgeable you both become. As an added bonus their staff is amazing. They are caring and warm. If you want to heal in a professional environment go to Specialized Physical Therapy in Fairlawn.
Highly professional staff, caring and helpful therapists, with lots of empathy.
I highly recommend Specialized Physical Therapy. Both of the physical therapists and their staff members are great, caring, friendly and kind people. They are experts in making your pain disappear.
I had physical therapy with Mike at Specialized physical therapy and wellness center. It is a great place with state of the art equipment and knowledgeable therapists. Mike helped me get my back stronger while teaching me the proper techniques to everyday functions such as sitting in a desk chair or a proper sit up. Thank you for being a great teacher!

Dan and Michael treat you like you are a member of there family.My every concern and need was satified. Great working environment. Person care and attention to detail make this a first choicr.
I am feeling thankful for finding the best physical therapy office on Maple Ave, Fair Lawn. Specialized PT and Wellness. I have been to many pt offices for my back. Mike and Dan are specialized and devoted to patients. They are concerned and caring. They work and listen to the patient and doctor. I have had problems with my back for years. Working with Mike and Dan, following their directions for improvement I feel fantastic. I am able to pick up my grandson, stand and cook for 2 days for this thanksgiving. I have my movement back and I say thank you to them and the pt aides. You people are miracle workers and I thank you.
I just finished my therapy for a torn rotater cuff with great results. When I started my therapy I was not able to raise my arm above my head or carry any heavy items without experiencing pain. Thanks to Mike and Dan, I have full use of my arm once more. Joy Disco
I am absolutely delighted that the "Brothers " have finally made their dream come true. You are both two talented and caring individuals. I wish you and your staff a successful business and much happiness in the years ahead. With my track record, you will likely see me sooner than later!

FALSE! ❌
Many people don’t know exactly what a physical therapist does. In short, a physical therapist is a specialist. We are focused on the movement of the body, which means we understand how the different parts of the body (muscle, bone, joint) interact to make normal fluid movement happen. Therefore, we are able to help people recover from different injuries and determine the source of bodily pain. We can examine how a limb moves, for example, and identify problematic patterns with that movement, such as stress or instability. When these movement deficits are left unchecked, they can cause or exacerbate injury.

Lower back pain can range anywhere from mild to EXTREME discomfort. Lower back pain is so common because it doesn’t just come from overexertion or physical movement, it can come from sitting in a chair for a long period of time.
Strengthening your back can help prevent a lot of discomfort. Doing things like focusing on your posture, stretching, and regularly standing, can help prevent lower back pain! If you are experiencing extreme discomfort, these things will be beneficial but you will want to get a doctors opinion as well.

Your time is precious ⏰ Therefore we dedicate each appointment to you and the specifics of your diagnosis! We don’t believe in the “conveyor belt” style of treatment. For us, it is individual and hands-on!
We provide personalized care and track your progress to keep making adjustments as needed.

The short answer is NO, YOU DON’T! 👍

On February 13, 2003, NJ passed the Direct Access Law (N.J.S.A. 45:9-37.13).

“Direct Access” means you have the freedom to seek physical therapy treatment without a prescription or referral from your physician.

You can bypass the often slow and expensive route of having to wait for an appointment with your physician for the sole purpose of getting a prescription to see your physical therapist.

Plus, you will be getting the much-needed treatment from your physical therapist quicker, thereby getting rid of pain and recovering from your injury faster.

That is exactly what we strive for...for you to get back to doing the things you love pain-free as fast as possible.

Sit ups are a classic for a reason - they require no equipment and all you need is the floor! Doing sit ups regularly strengthen your muscles, improve posture, greatly increase core strength and help burn calories. Plus, the stronger and healthier your body is, the less likely it is for injuries to occur!

Right after an injury, it can be hard to tell if something is a sprain or fracture. This is because the immediate effects are very similar (swelling, bruising, varying discomfort level…etc). Depending on the intensity of the fracture, you will most likely need an X-Ray to tell if there is a break in your bone.
Mild sprains can typically be treated at home with lots of rest, ice and some anti-inflammatories. If the pain worsens or does not start to lessen, you’ll want to go to the doctor and get a professional opinion. The quicker the pain is diagnosed, the quicker the recovery!!

It’s not always easy to figure out why you’re in pain. Then also figuring how to get better is just too much to handle without the proper expertise 🧐

There is a lot of info to take in account and go through!

• assess your previous injuries
• surgeries
• your exercise routine
• any sports you’ve played in the past
• your posture
• your form when working out
• and SO much more

It all matters! Yes, it takes some time and energy to overcome an injury, but it’s SO worth it!!

We know that every patient we see is different and we believe because of that, everyone should be treated with an individualized approach!

Let us help heal you and get you back to living your life😊 Call us today to set up an appointment and get started on your journey to recovery 💪
