Meet the Physical Therapist
Dr. Anika Paul is the founder/owner of Mettle Physical Therapy, located in Basking Ridge, NJ. Dr. Paul believes that one-on-one patient care, using an evidence-based approach, is vital in returning patients to their desired function. Also, what is equally important but is usually overlooked by other clinicians in the industry is to establish a maintenance and prevention protocol to avoid the reoccurrence of the injury in the future.
Anika Paul is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT)
This type of certification is a very rare certification/specialization and is very much in demand.
Certified Lymphedema Therapist includes comprehensive certification in:
- Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT)
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
- Custom, Multi-Layered Lymphedema Bandaging (MLLB)
- Garment selection and fitting
- Skin and wound care
The lymphatic system is very under-studied. Lymphedema is not always easy to recognize or well understood by healthcare professionals. Also, there are limited numbers of qualified and experienced therapists available to treat lymphedema.
Note from Dr. Anika Paul
Since the completion of my Physical Therapy degree, I’ve always looked forward to coming to work each day and meeting different people from all walks of life. I take a great sense of pride in my work and strive to provide the best quality of care to each of my patients. I truly enjoy the interaction aspect of my profession, and I love discussing my patients’ goals and motivating them to better their function. I enjoy having a beautiful relationship with my patients, and I believe it’s crucial to establish a solid rapport with each patient. Being a physical therapist allows me to work with amazing people and creates a constantly changing environment full of challenges. This is why I feel being a physical therapist is not just a job for me but also an adventure!
