St. Francis Medical Center opens physical therapy practice in Hamilton
In a continued effort to increase patient access to advanced physical therapy services in Central New Jersey, St. Francis Medical Center, Trenton, is now offering outpatient physical therapy and sports medicine to patients at its new location at 2275 Whitehorse-Mercerville Road, Hamilton.
St. Francis originally had its physical therapy services based at its Trenton campus. This new location offers more convenience with easy parking access and a short walking distance between entrance/exit and service areas. The new location is 10 minutes from St. Francis Medical Center, with access to major bus routes.
“We are excited to announce the opening of our Hamilton location,” said Jane Femia-Baider, assistant vice president, Post-Acute and Patient Support Services, St. Francis Medical Center. “We look forward to providing physical therapy and sports medicine services to patients in the Mercer County area with state-of-the-art facilities, and the continued high-quality care St. Francis is known for.”
St. Francis rehabilitation services in Hamilton will be provided by its care partner, Strive Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation. Services include:
-- Phyiscal therapy – Personalized treatment plans, developed in partnership with patients, to provide rehabilitation for health conditions including back and neck pain, sport injuries, work or auto injuries, muscle strains and sprains, and joint replacement therapy.
-- Manual therapy -- Also known as hands-on physical therapy, no devices or machines are used in treatment. Instead, therapists use only their hands to perform tissue work and mobilization/manipulation. Therapists apply pressure to the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles. This pressure can help relax muscles, increase circulation, break up scar tissue, and reduce or eliminate soft tissue inflammation.
-- Worker’s compensation– Customized treatments are designed to meet the needs patients and offer the stabilizing, strengthening, and conditioning necessary for work simulation and return-to-work.
Initial appointments can typically be scheduled within 24 to 48 hours, and early morning and evening hours are available to accommodate patient schedules. St. Francis Medical Center Physical Therapy accepts all major insurance plans, and offers consistent communication between therapists, physicians and patients for optimal treatment planning, quality outcomes and enhanced patient satisfaction.
