Ishitani Health Center - Physical Therapy

Physical therapists excel not just in alleviating pain but in addressing its root causes. We are so very proud of our Fort Lee Physical therapy support team, a highly trained and experienced staff that caringly identifies the root causes of body pain and discomfort. Know that when you team with Ishitani, a managed pain return to quality of life is just around the corner.

Once you and your PT practitioner have fully discussed the cause and nature of your pain and discomfort, a variety of proven healing activities will be administered. Today, let’s review just a few of them:

Low-Impact Aerobics Training:

Engaging in exercises that elevate your heart rate while being gentle on joints. Examples include brisk walking or using a stationary bike as a warm-up before progressing to strengthening exercises.

Strengthening Exercises:

Utilizing equipment like machines, resistance bands, or your body weight (e.g., lunges, squats, pushups) to enhance muscle strength. Focus areas may include core muscles (abdomen, glutes, back) and other specific muscle groups.

Pain Relief Exercises:

Targeting areas of pain to build strength and flexibility, ultimately facilitating a more comfortable daily life.


Incorporating gentle stretching into the session, ensuring a proper warm-up and avoiding overextension under the guidance of your therapist.

Moreover, our PT specialists may recommend exercises for you to perform at home or integrate with the care provided by other specialists at Ishitani Health Center. This holistic approach ensures comprehensive and personalized care to address your specific needs and contribute to your overall well-being.
