Bacharach Physical and Occupational Therapy Center: Atlantic City
Bacharach’s Atlantic City physical and occupational therapy center offers a complete spectrum of physical and occupational therapy services. We treat sports injuries, sprains and strains, low back pain, pulmonary rehabilitation, balance and dizziness, and all other musculoskeletal conditions.
Our occupational therapist treats concussion, brain injury, stroke and neurological disorders, hand and upper extremity conditions, occular and visual perceptual issues. She also treats pediatric patients.
Located on Atlantic Avenue in the AtlantiCare HealthPlex, the center has plenty of free parking and is easily accessible. Bacharach Physical and Occupational Therapy Center in Atlantic City brings the very best in outpatient rehabilitation to the Atlantic City community.

Outpatient Physical & Occupational Therapy Services
Physical therapists evaluate patients to identify areas of dysfunction. Then, they create a plan of care to address the areas of dysfuction using strengthening exercises and other modalities including manual manipulation. The goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain and to increase function and mobility.
Occupational therapy helps patients to safely perform the activities of daily living such as dressing, feeding and personal hygiene. It also helps patients who are experiencing cognitive problems after concussion, stroke, brain injury or other neurological disorder.
Occupational Therapy Services:
Brain injury and stroke rehab/neurological disorders
After brain injury or stroke, many people need help relearning cognitive skills. Occupational therapists can help remediate with therapy to improve problem solving, memory skills and decision making.
Most concussions resolve on their own in a few days. In contrast, when symptoms linger, there are therapies to reduce dizziness, regain balance, and to improve attention span.
Upper extremity orthopedics including hand therapy
Occupational therapists can treat the shoulder and elbow for many conditions including post-surgery, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, arthritis, sprains and strains. Hand therapy can improve a number of painful and functionally limiting conditions. Carpal tunnel syndrome, fractures, trigger finger and nerve or tendon repair are some of the conditions that may be improved by hand therapy.
Visual perceptual retraining
People with positioning in space deficits may improve with visual perceptual retraining therapy.
Cognitive therapies help people compensate for problems with problem solving, memory and word finding, and executive function.
Vestibular therapy helps to improve balance and visual coordination.
Kinesiotaping is useful in providing support, pain management, edema management and for positioning.
Physical Therapy Services:
Treatments for arthritis include modalities (heat, cold, electric stim) to reduce inflammation, and exercises to increase mobility.
The goal of therapy after auto injuries is to manage pain and restore normal function through exercise, strengthening, manual therapy, and instrument aided manipulation.
Patients are evaluated to identify underlying cause and treated accordingly. They are analysed for balance deficits and given proprioceptive and strength building exercises.
Individuals with gait problems are evaluated for balance deficits and offered exercise to improve form and walking pattern.
Hip and knee replacements
The goal of therapy after hip and knee replacement is to reduce pain, restore mobility and function and return safely to the activities of daily living.
Instrument-assisted soft tissue mmobilization
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a technique used to break up scar tissue and increase circulation. It is performed using small rigid instruments to allow the therapist to better manipulate soft tissue.
Kinesio tape is a stretchy tape applied externally to provide support and optimize biomechanical performance.
Manual therapy is hands-on therapy to mobilize joints and soft tissue and restore proper alignment.
Therapy for people recovering from meniscus tear provides pain relief, edema management to maximize mobility.
Therapy for people with MS includes pain management and learning energy conservation. There will also be emphasis on transfer training and identifying adaptive equipment.
Neck and back pain
Treatment for neck and back pain is focused on reducing muscle spasms, promoting proper alignment and posture and strengthening exercises.
Treatment for neurological disorders is aimed to improve proprioceptive neruo-muscular facilitation, in other words to improve balance, coordination and gait.
Physical therapy is an excellent way to address pain. It is non-invasive, and may offer immediate results, as well as continued imporovement over time. Using manual therapy, electric stim, strengthening exercises, instrument assisted gait training and education on body mechanics.
Parkinson’s patients undergo a postural assessment leading to balance and gait training.
Pulmonary therapy begins with a cardiopulmonary assessment to monitor vital signs and progresses with a graduated exercise program to increase endurance. The program also teaches proper posture and breathing techniques.
Repetitive Motion Injuries
Treatment begins with a biomechanical assessment to address limitations. Next steps include activity modification and strengthening exercises.
Bacharach offers pre- and post-operative theraputic exercises to increase range of motion, decrease pain, and increase strength.
Running injuries might include shin splints, meniscal tears, sprains, strains and poor body mechanics. Physical therapy for runners would address increasing strength and reducing pain, as well as correcting improper ankle and foot alignment.
Bacharach therapist will examine and evaluate the injured athlete to develop an injury specific plan of care. Therapies are designed to improve mobility and range of motion, and reduce pain.
Sprains and Strains
Sprains and strains are among the most common soft tissue injuries. Treatments address reducing swelling and pain, and increasing strength and range of motion.
Stroke patients are evaluated for gait and balance issues. Therapies are designed to improve strength, balance and function.
Neck and back pain
Physical therapy for neck and back pain would begin with a thorough evaluation to determine the area of dysfunction. Next, the therapist would create a plan of care to increase strength and develop proper body mechanics. This would lead to a decrease in pain and an increase in functional mobility.
