Ivan & Joe with NFL player Mohammed Sanu of the Cincinnati Bengals
At Raritan Physical Therapy, we are 100% committed to providing both our current and prospective clients the latest in fitness and injury rehab techniques available. We are not a typical physical therapy office where patients are treated using hot packs and E-Stim machines with some quick stretches and handouts for exercise programs. It embodies a new, multi-disciplinary approach to how physical therapy and fitness should be practiced.
Of course we pride ourselves on being industry leaders, but nothing gives us a stronger sense of pride than providing our clients with the essential tools for long term success in their overall well being. Sure, we’re going to rehab your injury quicker than you ever thought possible, but along the way you will learn how to have a healthier, and in turn, happier existence.
