Edison NJ (PRWEB) March 29, 2014
Raritan Physical Therapy in Edison, New Jersey, announced a newly developed, sports-centered service for injured athletes. The clinic combines the principles and techniques of physical therapy, fitness training, and sports rehabilitation to help injured athletes to return to their sport more quickly and to protect themselves from re-injury. Observing that athletic injuries are orthopedic injuries with a sport-specific aspect, Dr. Joseph Simon, DPT, the head of Raritan Physical Therapy, has combined the techniques of his profession with those of certified athletic trainers Ivan Candelaria and James "Jimmy" Daber. Together, the physical therapist and certified athletic trainers treat and retrain a recovering athlete in ways specific to the individual's sport by guiding the athlete through the sport's movement mechanics and by teaching ways of warming up and training more safely.
The clinic serves residents of Edison and nearby townships including Piscataway, Middletown, and Woodbridge. Its sports-centered service is for professional, collegiate, and high school athletes in football, soccer, baseball, basketball, track, and other specialties. Moreover, Dr. Simon encourages casual athletes and weekend warriors to avail themselves of the clinic's sports-centered service as well, noting that any athlete with a sports-related injury will benefit from physical therapy and rehabilitation tailored to that individual's sport. Dr. Simon, Mr. Candelaria, and Mr. Daber have previously helped hundreds of patients to return to the level of sports activity they achieved before their injury, and even to surpass it.
