Fall sports are coming soon - Get your BASELINE CONCUSSION TEST today!      


Our phones have been ringing off the hook with parents requesting our baseline concussion testing program for their athletes over ten years old. It is important to get a "healthy" baseline assessment of your child's balance and cognitive function prior to the possibility of a head injury. If your son or daughter attends one of the area high schools that perform an ImPACT test at their school, chances are they have not received a comprehensive check-up. School testing is often not viable because the test is performed in large overcrowded rooms without supervision. In addition, athletes who participate in the ImPACT test alone do not receive the critical balance testing needed to properly diagnose concussion.


Here at dbOrthopedic PT, we often see these same athletes for post concussion rehabilitation that had ImPACT testing at their schools but no balance testing. When they begin therapy, we have no status of their pre-injury status which greatly affects our ability to predict recovery. Please encourage all athletes to get this important test! It is being offered at RBC High School, Brookdale CC and for several area recreational programs. Call us at 732-747-1262 0r 732-462-2162 for a calendar and additional questions about the program.

Former patient and GRAVITY fitness participant Hunter Gorskie joins the NY Cosmos!


We are all excited to learn that Hunter Gorskie was signed on to play professional soccer with the new NY Cosmos soccer team. Hunter is a graduate of Marlboro HS and Stanford University. Prior to starting his college career, Hunter spent several weeks rehabilitating a soccer injury and eventually doing several weeks of GRAVITY personal training at dbOrthopedic PT to get bigger and stronger for the rigors of college soccer. We're glad it worked!


Congratulations Hunter!

Exercises for non-specific low back pain?
 Our patients often ask us, "Do you have any exercises for my low back pain?"  Usually we don't issue exercises without first performing a thorough evaluation. A research paper completed by a team in Alberta, Canada performed a systematic review to determine what works best for non-specific LBP.  While the research paper is somewhat lengthy, it will give you a good understanding as to how us clinicians use evidence-based research to make decisions regarding your care.
