If you experience numbness and tingling into the pinky and ring fingers, avoid a lot of elbow bending and leaning on the elbow to protect your ulnar nerve.

Don't jump into a new exercise program too quickly; always progress slowly and let your muscles, joints and bones adapt to the new stresses.

When sitting use a firm chair with a straight back, maintain an adequate lordosis (using a lumbar roll will help support your low back).


For Physicians:

When you refer your patients to Ridgefield Physical Therapy you are doing what more than 1100 other area physicians have already done – put them in professional and caring hands.  At RPT we use only safe and efficient protocols that rely on evidence based, best practice scenarios.

The Most Highly Qualified Team in Ridgefield : RPT has Ridgefield's largest and most qualified team of orthopedic clinicians. The staff's certifications and qualifications include the following:

  • Certified Hand Therapist
  • Certified Lymphedema Therapist
  • Orthopedic Certified Therapist
  • McKenzie Certified (Two Physical Therapists, one of which is certified since 1994)
  • Three Doctors of Physical Therapy
  • Bike Fit Certification
  • Disabled Ski Instructor
  • Manual Therapy Certification
  • Spin Instructor
  • Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
  • Functional Movement Screen Certified
  • Y Balance Test Certified
  • Two Certified Athletic Trainers

Prompt, Flexible and Consistent Service : Qualifications are important, but so is the way we treat our clients.  We strive to treat all patients quickly and maintain a warm, welcoming, stress-free environment.  New patients are usually seen within two business days, and our convenient hours offer flexibility, including evening and Saturday hours.  Patients see the same therapist at every visit, developing a trusting relationship that moves them towards achieving their goals.

Affordable Care When Insurance Ends : Once a client’s insurance coverage ends, we offer very affordable Aftercare and Wellness Counseling, which enables clients to continue their treatment and progress.  Compared with going to a gym, our Aftercare services are approximately 20 percent less expensive, and offer the same high quality care as our covered physical therapy services, with the same team that treated the patient, in a quieter, highly-supervised environment.

More Than Physical Therapy : In additional to physical therapy, we offer a wide range of complimentary services including aftercare (post physical therapy exercise), wellness consoling, stretching, Functional Movement Screens and YBalance Testing, massage, stretching and more.  This enables us to treat the patient on a variety of levels, leading to a faster recovery and overall health.

We accept a wide range of insurance >>
