Welcome to another episode of the Princeton Spine and Joint Center Podcast. In this episode Dr. Scott Curtis, the Sports Medicine Director at Princeton Spine and Joint Center sat down with Payal Patel, the Director of Physical Therapy and Co-Founder at Adapt Performance And Rehab in Lawrence Township.
Payal Patel is a fantastic physical therapist who has a passion for getting active adults engaged in physical therapy. They had a great conversation about active adults who may have suffered an injury and the steps to evaluate them, treat them, and get them back doing what they want to do in a pain free manner. So if you’re an adult who is active or who wants to become active, I highly recommend listening to the conversation they had and I hope you enjoy it.
Payal is a physical therapist, director of physical therapy, and co-founder at Adapt Performance And Rehab. She has worked with professional athletes from professional football, hockey, and soccer as well as firefighters.
Payal currently focuses on helping active adults who desire to stay active and have been let down by previous physical therapy treatments, doctors, or other treatments. She has had her own back pain, which debilitated her as an athlete and active adults. Her struggles led to her progressive style of treatment which she now uses to help active adults put their own injury struggles behind them so they can do what they love.
Payal believes all athletes and active adults should have the confidence in knowing that their bodies can stand up to any task and stay active without the worry of lingering injuries slowing them down.
