Dr. Charles Ferruzza PT, DPT, ATC, USAW L1, CF-L1

Owner and Founder of RX Physical Therapy

Dr. Charles is a Physical Therapist in Wayne, NJ who specializes in helping active adults, adult athletes, and barbell athletes eliminate pain and improve their mobility.

He understands how frustrating it can be when an injury sidelines you and keep you out of the gym or off the field. Even more frustrating is when you seek out help from a healthcare provider and they tell you to stop lifting weights, stop exercising, or to just rest.

Rest alone isn’t the answer, and “stop training” is the last thing anyone wants to hear.

So RX Physical Therapy was opened to help people with the same mindset, who love to lift weights, love to feel strong, and want to stay healthy and active their entire life.

Currently he is a Physical Therapist, Athletic Trainer, CrossFit Coach, and Olympic Weightlifting Coach. Not only can he break down and teach you the skills you need, but he can show you how to do them safely and correctly.

When you come in you can expect to be treated like an athlete! Your sessions will be tailored towards your goals. That means if you have back pain with deadlifting expect us to work up to deadlifts. If your experience with physical therapy in the past has been looking for pink weights and rubber band exercises prepare for something completely different

If you want a plan that gets you back in the gym, on the road, or on the field making gains fast stop waiting and let’s get started today.

Dr. Alex Hirsh PT, DPT

Owner and Founder of RX Physical Therapy

Dr. Alex is a Physical Therapist in Wayne NJ who specializes in helping youth athletes, young adults, and avid gym goers eliminate pain, restore function, and perform at the highest level they want to achieve.

Alex was a competitive gymnast from age 5-17 and had a series of injuries that eventually prevented her from returning to sport. As a young adult she was able to restore her function through weight lifting and cross fit type workouts to stay healthy and remain in the gym. She understands how devastating an injury or pain can be and how it affects a person’s identity.

She became a Physical Therapist to learn the tools and techniques that will help all athletes and adults stay in their sport or in the gym. She has a passion for identifying the root cause of the issue and then creating a specific mobility and exercise routine to get athletes and adults back to their sport or activity as soon as possible. Her main goal is to provide a framework of tools that clients can use for the rest of their lives to stay active, be healthy, and achieve their highest goals!
