By using this approach, many of our patients/clients often return to their sport stronger, faster, more flexible, more explosive, and more resistant to injury than ever.

- Avoid positions that foster injury. Tight grip and pinch puts strain on small joints of the hand. Add cushioned grips or grip tape to tool handles or purchase tools with ergonomic grip designs. Cushioned grips allow you to get a good grip on the tool while lessening strain on fingers. Use proper body mechanics. Avoid staying in one position for too long. Avoid activities and require gripping for long periods of time. Keep wrists in neutral (straight, not bent up or down). Vary your gardening tasks. Repetitive movements often cause skin, tendon, nerve irritation or joint inflammation. […]
- The Illiotibial Band (ITB) is a thick band of fibrous tissue that runs down the outside of your leg from your pelvis to your knee. Some of the buttock and hip muscles attach to it and the ITB co-ordinates how these muscles work and stabilizes the knee – Tightness of the ITB can make subtle changes to the way the knee moves resulting in knee pain. It can lead to patella maltracking, where the kneecap doesn’t glide properly, which is common in conditions such as Runners Knee and Chondromalacia Patella. It can also irritate the bursa, small fluid filled sacs […]
- Lateral Epicondylitis, commonly known as Tennis Elbow, is a painful condition involving tendons that attach to the bone, the lateral epicondyle, on the outer aspect of the elbow. Tendon anchors muscle to bone. The extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) muscle is involved in this condition and it helps to extend and stabilize the wrist. There is degeneration in the tendon where it attaches to the bone, causing pain with activities involving lifting, gripping and/or grasping. The majority of people with lateral epicondylitis have never played tennis. Causes include overuse or trauma with a direct blow to the outside of the […]

- Making time for static stretching in your daily life for better wellness. There seems to be some misunderstanding with the necessity of static stretching in your daily workouts. Many individuals seem to think that there is no value to static stretching based on some past studies that were presented in the media. What many of the studies are suggesting is that static stretching decreases muscle performance and therefore are a waste of a person or athletes time. The truth of the matter is this. If you hold a stretch for longer than 45 seconds there has been evidence that it […]
Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I go about scheduling an appointment for physical therapy?
You must first obtain a prescription for physical therapy from your physician or surgeon. Once you have a prescription, please call us at (781) 297-0979 and press 1 to schedule an initial evaluation by one of our physical therapists.
2. What should I bring to my initial appointment?
Please bring your license or photo ID, your insurance card(s), and your prescription for physical therapy from your physician. In addition, if your physician and/or surgeon provided you with any specific post-operative orders (i.e. post-operative protocol), please bring that information as well. Also, if you take any prescription medications, please bring a list of your medications and current dosages.
3. How should I dress for my initial evaluation?
Please be sure to dress appropriately or bring appropriate attire for your evaluation. If your injury involves a lower extremity, shorts are typically ideal. If your injury involves your back, neck, or upper extremity, please wear clothing that allows easy exposure of the area to be examined and/or treated during your session (i.e. tank top). Locker rooms are available if you need to change into more appropriate attire before or after your PT session.
4. How many PT sessions should I expect to need?
The number of PT sessions in a given episode of care depends on many factors, including the nature of your injury and/or surgery (and related healing times, etc), the medical necessity of your treatment, any specific orders from your referring physician, and the time it takes you to meet the functional goals outlined in your Plan of Care. In addition, different insurance providers offer different benefits regarding physical therapy services, which may also have an influence in the duration of your episode of care. Typically, most of patients are seen 1-3 times/wk during the episode of care (2 visits/week on average), depending on your therapeutic needs. In general, we strive to get our patients back to their optimal level of function as quickly and as safely as possible given the specific circumstances.
5. Who will provide my treatment during my physical therapy sessions?
Our PT staff typically works in teams of two – your Physical Therapist and his/her Physical Therapist Assistant – both licensed and experienced rehabilitation professionals. Your Physical Therapist will perform your initial evaluation and any additional re-evaluations and/or progress notes for your physician as necessary. Both your Physical Therapist and his/her Assistant will work with you during your PT sessions depending on the given appointment.
6. What can I expect at the conclusion of my episode of care?
To hopefully feel much better, stronger, more flexible, and more functional than when you arrived! But in addition to these obvious expectations, we expect that you will have met your treatment goals, improved your level of function, achieved independence with your exercise program, and feel that you’ve received excellent care. Many of our patients choose to continue their rehab program with Elite by joining the Fitness Center as a member, working with a Personal Trainer or on their own.
