For those people that can’t make it into our clinic for “live PT” sessions we are providing “Telehealth PT” sessions, by appointment only. Most Insurance Companies DO Cover Telehealth and many are eliminating Patient’s Copays. (They want people to stay home and be safe, so they would likely be no cost to the patient!)
No Prescription Needed. Patients Have Direct Access to Physical Therapy

Direct Access to Physical Therapy: Giving Patients More Choice!
We are Bridging the Gap Between Rehabilitation and Wellness
Physical Therapy That Produces Great Results!
And a Fitness Studio to Bridge the Gap Between Rehabilitation and Total Wellness
Welcome to Game Shape Physical Therapy
We are the 1st Choice for Physical Therapy in the Central New Jersey Area. For over 15 Years we have bridged the gap between traditional physical therapy clinics and the big box gyms. CEO and Owner, Dr. Michelle Wolpov, PT, DPT, MBA, CSCS, ATC has used a groundbreaking business model to provide physical therapy patients a way to receive exceptional, evidence-based physical therapy treatments; and she has created a pathway, a "bridge", to allow discharged patients a way to continue reaching their wellness goals.
In fact, anyone can obtain physical therapy in NJ without a physician's prescription and will get maximum insurance coverage from the majority of insurance companies (with the exception of Workers' Comp and Motor Vehicle). And we offer early morning, late evening and weekend appointments. We have demonstrated outstanding clinical outcomes and patients have access to a secure patient portal with the means to communicate with their therapist 24 hours a day.
Once Physical Therapy is close to completion, patients can bridge into a fitness program, with certified and experienced personal fitness trainers and exercise physiologists. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy oversee the Medical Fitness Programs that we offer to our patients and to the entire community. We are committed to providing the highest quality of service. And that is why our patients and clients refer us new business and keep coming back! Call our hotline today for more information (732) 652-9785.
Come on in...tour our newly renovated facility...meet our team... and see how we can be of service to you!

Tennis is a great form of physical activity that works out many parts of the body due to its demanding dynamics, but just like every other sport, it also comes with a risk for injury. The most common injury in the sport is called lateral epicondylitis, …
So far, we’ve been primarily focusing on repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) that result from performing the same movements regularly in one’s occupation. But sports—both as a profession and a recreational activity—typically require certain motions …
Our hands are the main tools that we use to navigate the world around us. Most—if not all—professions require some use of the hands to complete the task, whether that’s grooming dogs, typing at a computer, or trimming trees. Unfortunately, these rep…
Throughout a typical day, you use your hands, wrists, and elbows almost constantly. From vigorously brushing your teeth in the morning, to switching the lights off before bed, and during just about every other action in between, these joints are frequentl…

In our first newsletter, we briefly mentioned how bad posture, neck pain, and respiratory function are all related. This relationship is worth a closer examination, too, as improving the way you breath is a key to better posture, reduced pain, and less st…
In our last post, we introduced you to the concept of posture, explained what is meant by good versus poor posture, and offered a few examples of painful conditions and other dysfunctions that may be related to poor posture. But since this was only the in…

Game Shape physical therapy has made all the difference...No longer do I wake up crying from pain. I can walk up a flight of stairs, put on my own socks, and feel my toes - something not possible for over ten years. These are huge accomplishments! I am stronger, more flexible and more confident. Most importantly, I can actually look forward to the next chapter in my life. Thank you Game Shape!
The physical therapy department at Game Shape is outstanding! After evaluating my needs, my therapist determined a course of action that turned my life around. My regimen consisted of targeted muscle exercises, use of specialized equipment, massage, electrical stimulation, and a home exercise program. Special thanks to my therapist Cynthia and to the entire professional staff at Game Shape for granting me a new lease on life!
I have been free of chronic low back pain for 3 months after living with it for over 15 years. My daily commitment to physical fitness has played a vital role in me feeling better.
Eat more often and lose weight, sounded to good to be true. I was skeptical at first, but in two weeks I lost 8 pounds. From now on when Lori talks, I'll listen.
Thanks for helping me with my knee. I was very impressed with the attention and hands-on care I received in every session.
Dr. Michelle Wolpov, PT, DPT, MBA, ATC, CSCS Owner of Game Shape Physical Therapy Author of the Book: Direct Access to Physical Therapy - The Secret Revealed How to Relieve Pain & Restore Function Without Medications, Injections, or Surgery
The book "Direct Access to Physical Therapy: The Secret Revealed - How to Relieve Pain & Restore Function WITHOUT Medications, Injections, or Surgery" was written to educate the general public on the benefits of self-referral to physical therapy. It is also to provide valuable information, that until this publication, was primarily shared only among physical therapists.
This comprehensive book is packed with useful information that will be valuable, to many audiences, at describing the basis and development of the profession of physical therapy, and the route to accessing physical therapy. Dr. Wolpov has written a detailed resource that explains what a consumer should consider to receive physical therapy, and the benefits of physical therapy to overall healthcare. Given all the recent changes in physical therapy access, and the expected changes to come in healthcare, the timing of this book is perfect. Dr. Wolpov's book supports the vision of the physical therapy profession to transform society.
