Physical Therapy

When illnesses or injuries limit your ability to move and perform daily activities, our experienced and licensed physical therapists deliver skilled care with attention to your individual needs. Physical therapy is a vital part of the rehabilitation process, promoting the ability to move, reducing pain, restoring function and preventing disability.

Specialty outpatient programs within our Physical Therapy department include vestibular rehabilitation/balance training, the treatment of urinary incontinence, which may include biofeedback, electrical stimulation and therapeutic exercise, as well lymphedema and complications following cancer treatment.

Physical therapy patients have the option of three convenient locations: Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rahway, or one of our two RWJ Rahway Fitness & Wellness Centers in Carteret or Scotch Plains.

A prescription is required for outpatient physical therapy and aquatic therapy at all locations.

The hospital participates in many insurance programs. Please call your insurer to verify benefits.
