PHYSICAL THERAPY

We offer a convenient in-office, physician-directed physical therapy facility dedicated to providing high quality, progressive rehabilitation services. Our goal is to ensure that each patient achieves optimal functional improvement in the shortest possible time.

APPOINTMENT TIMES

Early morning, late evening and Saturday appointments for physical therapy are available for your convenience. Dr. Raskin's office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We do our best to accommodate same day appointments.

DIGITAL IMAGING

We provide on-site, state-of-the-art, digital imaging technology (x-ray and ultrasound). Our offices are entirely digital offering faster, safer and more comprehensive digital radiography. Digital radiography uses lower doses of radiation compared to conventional x-ray and is more environmentally friendly because chemical processing is eliminated and viewing screens are used rather than film.

ELECTRODIAGNOSTIC STUDIES

In addition to on-site diagnostic imaging and a state-of-the-art physical therapy department, including pilates, our complete range of clinical and therapeutic services includes Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Studies.

FIT FOR DUTY EXAMINATIONS (FFDE)

Dr. Raskin conducts comprehensive Fit for Duty Evaluations directed toward determining the worker's ability to return to his/her job. Specific functional capabilities, e.g., lifting and other material handling techniques are tested based on job-specific needs.
