Our Practice

Back to Health Physical Therapy Associates is a leading provider of physical and occupational therapy services in Northern New Jersey. We have been improving our patients’ lives since 2006 by providing physical and occupational therapy in our state-of-the-art clinic in River Edge, NJ as well as providing physical and occupational therapy to patients throughout Northern New Jersey via our “Therapy at Home” service.

What makes us different than every other practice?  Each therapist schedules one patient per hour to ensure that the patients have undivided attention throughout the entire course of their treatment, regardless of whether you are being treated in our state-of-the-art clinic or in the comfort and convenience of your own home. If treated in our clinic, you will have access to our specialty equipment, like full-length parallel bars, NuStep machines, and stand-alone stairs which are not typically found in most therapy clinics.

When you receive physical and/or occupational therapy at Back To Health, you immediately notice the difference.  The level of attention we provide to all our patients is truly unparalleled. Our patients have our complete, undivided attention for the duration of their treatment.  We pride ourselves on our high-quality care and individualized rehabilitation programs. Our therapy is based on the latest evidence-based research to maximize each patient’s return to function in the shortest amount of time.

Additionally, all our therapists have a high level of experience and expertise – including specialties in Geriatrics, Neurology, Orthopedics, Cardio-Pulmonary, Vestibular, Wheelchair Seating and Mobility, Durable Medical Equipment and Home Modifications, among others.

Our well educated, warm and friendly office staff strives to make every patient and family member feel comfortable, in addition to helping them navigate through the web of insurance rules and regulations and providing answers to all of the financial questions that our patients may have.


Mitch Simpson, Physical Therapist and Owner of Back to Health

Mitch Simpson, PT, MSPT, OCS, is the Founder and President of Back To Health Physical Therapy Associates. Mitch has been practicing physical therapy for over 21 years. He received his physical therapy degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1997. He is board certified as an Orthopedic Specialist(OCS) by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). Additionally, he has LSVT BIG certification concentrating in helping the Parkinson’s population. Mitch is an active member of the APTA and is actively involved with the Orthopedics and Geriatrics Sections of the APTA.

After years of treating patients in high volume “mills” where therapists were scheduling three to four patients per hour and patients were only receiving 10-15 minutes of “face time” with a licensed therapist, Mitch decided to create something different. A unique therapy clinic where patients receive the full, dedicated attention of their therapist for the full hour+ duration of treatment. He also identified many patients who could benefit from outpatient physical therapy but were unable to travel to a traditional clinic and created the “Therapy at Home” service.

Back To Health Physical Therapy was created to ensure that each patient would receive the attention and care they deserve, with a mission to provide an outstanding, personalized and caring level of physical and occupational therapy in either the home or clinic environment.


Back To Health Physical Therapy has assembled a team of outstanding, caring, tenured and specialized physical and occupational therapists. Our back to health team truly cares about their patients, and each member of the team strives to return each of our patients BACK to HEALTH! Mitch and his team of therapists at Back to Health have successfully helped our patients achieve a higher quality of life through focused and skilled physical and occupational therapy.
