Physical & Occupational Therapy

Physical Therapy Background

With a background in physical therapy, Dr. Magaziner has always believed in the importance of exercise and conservative therapies. He utilizes a team approach in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. He commonly refers patients for physical therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractic therapy, massage therapy or acupuncture when necessary.
Using physical therapy in the early stages of a treatment plan is helpful. Based upon a patient’s response to conservative care, Dr. Magaziner will formulate the most efficient interventional pain or regenerative medicine treatment plan that will provide the best possible clinical outcome.

Physical Therapy

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) defines physical therapy as “movement experts who optimize quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education.” Physical therapists help people move better and feel better after injury, surgery, or illness. They use a variety of exercise techniques and physical modalities to decrease your pain, improve range of motion (ROM), strength, balance, and endurance.
A physical therapist focuses on the patient’s total body. Treatment typically is centered around the lower body, upper body, trunk, or cardiorespiratory system. Your PT will work with you to help you regain your functional mobility if you are having difficulty moving around.

Occupational Therapy

The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) describes occupational therapists as healthcare practitioners who “help people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations).”
The meaningful things you do that make up each day are considered your occupations. Are you a parent or a teacher? Do you drive a truck? What specific things must you be able to do to function in your daily roles? These tasks are considered your occupations, and they may become compromised after an injury, illness, or surgery.The inability to perform these meaningful everyday tasks can lead to functional mobility loss and disability. Your OT can help you regain full function during these tasks so you can get back to your normal lifestyle.

Goal Of Therapy

Lack of exercise, poor posture, and structural faults can lead to injury and pain problems. Conversely, when you’re in pain it’s hard to exercise and reverse the problem. Our goal is to reduce or eliminate the pain. We work closely with the best therapists in the area and design therapy programs targeted to get people back on the road towards functional restoration.

Individual results may vary from patient to patient. For more information, please contact our North Brunswick office.
