In Memory of James Tucker

Dear Colleagues,

In Memory of James Tucker

It is with sadness that I announce the passing of James Tucker. James was a key figure in the physical therapy profession here in the state of New Jersey. His contributions to the profession, as both a practicing PT and an educator, are beyond measure.

The James Tucker Excellence in Clinical Practice and Teaching Award was named in his honor, and is awarded by the APTANJ, to a physical therapist who exemplifies the same passion and dedication that James had for the profession. The 2015 recipient of this prestigious award is Robert Marsico, PT, EdD, OCS.

In Memory of James Tucker

On behalf of the APTANJ family, I send my heartfelt sympathy to his family. To honor his memory, a wake will be held on Saturday, October 31st, 2:00 - 6:00 pm, at Codey & Jones Funeral Home, 54 Roseland Avenue in Caldwell. The Funeral will take place at 11:00 am, on Monday, November 2nd, at the First Presbyterian Church, 326 Bloomfield Avenue in Caldwell.

Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center recently sponsored a course in their office entitled "Assessment - Treatment - Prevention of Neck Pain Disorders & Disability." Twelve students attended, which included lecture and lab session focusing on manual intervention, including mobilization techniques for the cervical spine and strategies for prevention of disabilities.

As a service to our local physical therapy University, four Rutgers students were invited to attend free of charge to introduce them to current treatment interventions. (See picture below)

The physical therapists at Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center are McKenzie credentialed practitioners focusing on mechanical treatment for spinal disorders. The focus is on a comprehensive evaluation to determine positions movements or activities that reproduce the symptoms as well as instruction in proper body mechanics and postural principles. The goal is to educate the patient to help resolve the present symptoms and prevent any future recurrence of pain or disability.

Catherine Laico, PT, OCS, Cert MDT, recently attended a continuing education course entitled “Functional Testing and Skilled Documentation in Geriatric Therapy”. This course was geared towards assisting our senior patients achieving maximal functional outcomes in physical therapy while also maintaining compliance with Medicare guidelines. The therapists at our facility continue to exceed state mandated continuing education requirements by taking course work on a consistent basis to keep up with the latest advances in the field of physical therapy.  This helps us to continue to deliver the best of care!

Barry recently attended a postgraduate seminar entitled “"A Master Clinician's Approach to Advanced Concepts and Examination and Treatment of the Shoulder Complex" instructed by George J. Davies, DPT. Mr. Davies has spent his entire career on validating, through research, the appropriate physical therapy intervention for the treatment of the shoulder as well as the knee.

Barry, who is a Certified Hand Therapist, works hard to stay current on the new advances in physical therapy intervention, concentrating on the upper extremity.

March 5, 2013

The physical therapists, at Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center, strive to provide the best care possible to our patients. We frequently sponsor continuing education courses at our office and we always exceed the basic requirements required by the Board of Physical Therapy Examiners.

Another way to advance our knowledge is by observing surgery. Barry G.Inglett, PT, CHT recently had the opportunity to spend 5 hours in a local surgery center observing hand surgery.

Inglett said “It is really amazing what hand specialists are now able to do on an out-patient basis. The new anesthetics allow them to rapidly perform the procedure and the patient goes home the same day.” It was very interesting to see an endoscopic carpal tunnel release as well as a trigger finger release and he also had the opportunity to observe pins being removed from one of his active patients, status post fracture base of the 5th metacarpal.

Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center specializes in orthopedics and also is staffed with Certified Hand Therapist to provide you the best possible treatment after your hand injury or surgery.

TIPS FOR SAFE SNOW SHOVELING

When snow shoveling, you are bending forward, twisting and lifting. It is something people do every winter and it causes back injuries. Because shoveling is a repetitive activity, it causes a lot of strain on the lower back and can lead to muscular strain, joint sprain or stress on the disc leading to disc protrusion or even herniation. As these injuries can be more serious then you think, if you do experience low back pain which does not clear up within one to two days, you should consult a licensed physical therapist. Also, anytime symptoms worsen instead of improve, or radiate down the leg, it is time to seek consultation.

Here are some tips for safe snow shoveling:

  1. Try to lift while keeping the back a bit arched, and lift with your legs rather than your back.
  2. Use an appropriate shovel. One option is a "back-saver" shovel with a handle that curves up and back. The scoop is lower and you don’t have to bend as far, make sure the length of the shovel is correct. If the shovel is too long this causes a long lever and increases the load you lift. If the shovel is too short, you will need to bend too far over to reach the snow causing a lot of unnecessary stress on your spine!
  3. Whenever you are performing a repetitive activity to avoid injury you must remember two concepts: frequent interruption and reversal of stress. Because shoveling is what is known as a flexion activity, where you are bending and losing the curve in your spine, you want to perform an opposite activity, to reverse the stress on the discs and ligaments. So, when shoveling stop frequently and stand up straight, place your hands on your hips or the small of your back and bend back backwards 5 to 10 times. Also take a break and walk around a couple of minutes frequently which changes your back position and avoids stress.
  4. Avoid twisting your back. As you unload the shovel, move one foot in the direction that you will throw the snow instead of twisting from the spine.
  5. Pick up small loads of snow each time rather than trying for a larger load. You should also break up shoveling a larger area into smaller areas to allow for longer breaks, rather than doing it all at once whenever possible.
  6. After you are done shoveling, avoid combining it with an activity that puts the same stress on your spine. For example avoid further bending or lifting, as well as prolonged car rides or sitting. Instead lay down for a bit or take a short walk using the concept of protecting your spine with an opposite activity!

Constantly Keeping up with the Latest...

Catherine Laico, PT, Jeanette Catoggio, PT and June Bliss PTA recently added to their extensive knowledge in orthopedics by attending a continuing education seminar, "Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement Systems Impairment Syndromes: Introduction to Concepts and Application of Principals." This seminar was taught by the world-renowned physical therapist Shirley Sahrmann, PT, PhD, FAPTA. "The information was very pertinent to our patient caseload and it was a privilege to see Ms. Sahrmann present," Laico said. The therapists at Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center consistently exceed the state's continuing education requirements while striving to provide the best of care to all patients.

Holiday Stroll

The Chamber of Commerce of Pompton Lakes hosted their annual Holiday Stroll on December 3rd, 2011. The stroll ran along Wanaque Ave starting at the library and ending at the railroad tracks. Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center participated in the event as well as other local vendors to promote business and show their support for the town. Barry & staff handed out mugs of hot coffee which was the perfect touch to a cold December night. Neighbors, local workers, council members, shoppers and students all gathered to ring in the holiday season and made the event a huge success. A picture from the Holiday Stroll is displayed below featuring Barry Inglett, PT & Co-Owner, and staff members Christine & Jenn.

Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center
Supports Physical Therapy!!

In continuous support of our profession of physical therapy, Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center had a busy summer hosting volunteers who came to seek experience and explore career options in the field of physical therapy! With fall underway and October being National Physical Therapy month, it seems a good time to mention that we continue our endeavors as we serve as clinical educators for physical therapy programs in universities in the northeastern region of the United States. This internship is a vigorous one for final affiliate students who will be continuing in the area of orthopedic physical therapy. At Wayne Physical Therapy & Spine Center, we hope our commitment to our students will help ensure the quality of physical therapists entering the field.

Barry and his son Jared recently completed a five-day backpacking trip in the white mountains of New Hampshire. "Climbing Mount Washington was no easy task," said Barry. "I am trying to be a good example for my family, my patients and him by trying to stay fit, despite the fact that I just recently turned 60."
