Physical Therapy

Here, you’ll find that all of our physical therapists are licensed professionals, specially trained in musculoskeletal dysfunction. We strive to improve function and prevent disability following a disease or surgical process, injury, wound or amputation. Our team uses customized exercise programs, manual therapy techniques, ultrasound, electric stimulation, massage and a variety of wound care techniques. Aquatic therapy and dry needling are also available.

Occupational Therapy

Our licensed occupational therapists are trained to observe activities of daily living and assist patients in their home and work environments. Through adaptive techniques or devices, we help individuals stay as independent as possible. With specialized knowledge of the upper extremity, our occupational therapists offer modalities, range of motion, exercises and the saebo-flex to help patients regain functional use of their upper extremities.

Speech Language Pathology

The Speech language Pathologist accesses communication deficits and swallowing disorders related to problems resulting from strokes, accidents and progressive diseases. Videofluroscopic evaluation of swallowing is also offered at Carteret Health Care.

As your partner in health, we strive to provide high-quality healthcare services to the entire community.
