Treatments & Techniques

Fitness & Rehab of Toms River, New Jersey offers one-on-one physical therapy from an experienced and caring physical therapist. We treat all kinds of painful conditions, offering treatment for age-related conditions, injuries from accidents, and post-operative rehabilitation.

Joe Napolitano, a licensed physical therapist with more than 20 years of experience, will personally spend from a half hour to an hour with you at every session. This continuity of care from an experienced therapist not only sets our patients’ minds at ease, it contributes to faster recovery with greater comfort as Joe gets to know you and personally monitors your progress. 

We utilize hands-on treatment to re-establish correct postural alignment and specific exercise programs to maintain flexibility and strength of the body. Plus, Joe won’t just treat your pain, he will recommend a home exercise program to help maintain your healing progress and keep your pain from coming back. As part of your rehabilitation care, we will keep your doctor informed of your treatment program and individual progress with written evaluation reports.

At Fitness & Rehab, Joe uses a variety of treatments to help relieve your pain and achieve improved function as fast as possible. Quick pain relief means fewer visits. It means less pain. It means getting you back to your job, your family, and your life – faster.

Our comprehensive treatment options include:

Manual (Hands-on) Therapy

Manual therapy techniques include joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, massage therapy, myofascial release, and manual traction.

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercises are bodily movements that correct an impairment, improve musculoskeletal function, or maintain a state of well-being. They help to release contracted muscles, improve circulation, reduce rigidity, improve balance, and more.

Some types of therapeutic exercises are:

  • Endurance training
  • Resistance training
  • Flexibility training

Cold Laser Therapy

Low-level laser therapy can be used to help manage pain and stimulate healing. Some of the benefits of cold laser therapy include:

  • Increases the speed, quality, and strength of tissue repair
  • Increases blood supply
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Stimulates nerve function
  • Develops collagen and muscle tissue
  • Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
  • Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
  • Reduces inflammation

Cold laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment. The number of treatments necessary and length of treatment varies by condition. Most treatment sessions range from a few minutes to 15 minutes. Low-level laser therapy is considered to be one of the safest treatments available today. 

McKenzie Spinal Care

This pioneering method to assess and treat the spine is widely recommended worldwide as one of the most effective ways to address common back and neck problems.

Electrical Stimulation

Electrical stimulation helps decrease pain and swelling and facilitates faster healing.

TENS therapy

This modality uses low-frequency electrical stimulation to treat the nerves that are causing pain. TENS therapy can provide relief that lasts for weeks, and repeated applications can bring long-term freedom from shoulder, back, and neck pain.


Ultrasound therapy creates a deep-heating effect that can reduce pain and joint stiffness.

Iontophoresis / Phonophoresis

These treatments utilize topical medication to help reduce the symptoms of tendonitis and bursitis and facilitate healing.

Heat and Cold Therapy

The therapeutic application of heat and cold can help aid in the healing of muscles and tendons and relieve pain as part of your physical therapy plan of care.
