AN IMPORTANT PART OF THERAPY
Before beginning the therapy program, patients get an easy-to-understand explanation of the evaluation and therapy process and how their program helps with injury or pain.
Each patient’s program is based on three key elements: our evaluation; the doctor’s/therapist’s recommendations; and the patient’s needs/goals. As the patient progresses, his day-to-day treatment protocol is continually adjusted, as is the at-home therapy program.
Pain Relieving Modalities
The center uses a variety of the latest pain relief techniques such as manual mobilization, electrical stimulation, ultra sound, traction and iontophoresis.
Strengthening equipment and popular cardiovascular devices help the team match patient needs and abilities with recovery goals. The center incorporates equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, stairsteppers, upper and lower body bicycles and devices for balance and proprioceptive training.
Therapy Should Be Fun
The center provides educational charts, fitness and nutrition magazines, television and relaxing music to enhance the rehabilitation experience.
“Using the best tools is essential” says Carmine. “But the interpersonal component, positive reinforcement and constant encouragement, is equally important. We want our patients to enjoy their rehabilitation experience and get well at the same time. Patients are like our extended family. Many even become friends and keep in touch.”

Carmine is wonderful! I had knee meniscus surgery and he helped me recover very fast. He takes time to explain the therapy and goes out of his way to care for you. He is a very caring person and also knowledgeable in his trade. I would recommend it to anyone in need of therapy.

I am seeing Dr. Carmine for a torn triceps. This is not a common injury so I wanted to be diligent in choosing the right clinic for therapy. I 100% chose correctly with Dr. Carmine’s clinic. I called around and spoke to half a dozen clinics and when I spoke to Dr. Carmine’s last, I knew he was the one I wanted to see and help me rehab. Many healthcare providers with his level of experience may look at programming rehabilitation the way they’ve always done it… not Dr. Carmine. Even after all the years of experience, he is open-minded, stays on top of the latest and greatest techniques/therapeutics, and most importantly, has wonderful bedside manner. I 100% recommend Dr. Carmine. If you’re looking around, doing research on what clinic to use, give him and his team a call and ask questions. They are more than happy to answer! The team reflects Dr. Carmine’s attitude… Patient first.
