Professional, experienced and knowledgeable. That is the kind of physical therapists you will find at Advanced Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in Lake Como, NJ. Writing a testimonial for Dr. James Coomber, PL DPT, is on easy task since James is a caring individual who is dedicated to the care and well-being of his patients. James extends his knowledge to his patients; explains the components of a personalized program; and how it will provide a process of recovery that is right for you. James also explains in depth (for my concerns in particular) how the knees and back function with the rest of your bones and muscular system; and why these problem ares are so painful when not functioning correctly. James for example, explains how to sit and bend knees properly, and lift correctly etc. to give your body better care. Which I should have been doing for years!
If you have spent any time in physical therapy at various therapy facilities, I doubt you have spent time where you were given personalized care. The care I had previously received was one where I spent a total of 15 minutes with the therapist; and the remaining time I had a non-certified person help with with heat and cold applications; and then left to complete a list of exercises on my own. Now that may be adequate for a “therapy mill” but as a baby boomer-aged patient, I expect better care.
You will find the hour spent with Dr. James Coomber, and other physical therapists like him at APMR is spent in their undivided attention ensuring a successful recovery. Jame will guide you with additional exercises in order to help you develop a home program to gain strength and agility. Of course, my treatment started when I was in a great deal of knee and back pain making for example, stairs and normal lifting difficult. James is very conscientious of my pain tolerance, and I began to trust his judgment in knowing when I could increase the repetitions and amount of time for exercises, each, and every visit. After working exclusively with James, I noticed improvement in just the first two weeks. Not only do I sense greater mobility, my co-workers have noticed my improved agility and movement since my therapy treatments with James. James is conscientious and professional at all times and is focused on my care.
The facility at APMR is not a cold, medicinal type of faculity, but one that is quite welcoming. The atmosphere is on of a “spa-like” setting, tastefully decorated with inspirational posts and affirmations where privacy for each patient is considered through the use of small therapy areas, and screens. Although I have not received treatment from Dr. Dan Reizis, Pr, DPT, NASM-CPT, as a therapist, I do know he ensures that the facility runs smoothly and is well kept. The facility is immaculate and refreshments such as bottled water and coffee are available. Products to lessen back pain and analgesic skin cream may be purchased as well as other small exercise equipment such as orthotics, straps and pillows.
Do no just take my word for it, make it a point to visit the facility and you will find out first hand for yourself how therapeutic Advanced Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation really is.
If you have ever wondered about acupuncture therapy as a treatment for pain, then you should seek the healing care from Moises Moris, a Nationally Board Certified Acupuncturist. When I began physical therapy at Advanced Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, it was suggested that I make an effort to schedule time with the resident acupuncturist. At that time, I had never used acupuncture as a resource to aid In pain management. My insurance covered it so I made an appointment. Through the use of acupuncture, these past few months have shown a tremendous decrease in pain for my knees and back. This therapy In conjunction with physical therapy has made all the difference In my quality of life. Moises Is an accomplished young man and well versed in the use of acupuncture for pain management.
Moises has a way of putting you at ease and answers any questions you might have regarding the use of Chinese Medicine. The procedure is painless and very relaxing. The treatment is given in a privacy room at APMR. The treatment time is so relaxing you might find yourself falling asleep. Moises has also used acupuncture to aid my other areas of concerns such as indigestion, asthma, tendonitis and arthritis in my shoulder. At this time, I am so glad that I took the recommendation of Dr. Coomber, and scheduled that first appointment for pain management. Moises works closely with the physical therapist to combine both treatments for a well-rounded program.
Moises is a very skilled certified acupuncturist who will find the best treatment for you. Moises has an ability to teach you about the treatment you receive which is an additional bonus. Continuing acupuncture will become a part of my preventive medicine/healthy living program. Moises ls enthusiastic about his chosen field and approaches concerns with a holistic outlook and tremendous patience. So many of my pain Issues have been resolved without the use of invasive measures. Moises has an Intelligent and intuitive quality, which puts me at ease on the very first visit and has helped me to relax during the sessions. After just two weeks, I recommended APMR to my friends and colleagues for both acupuncture and physical therapy.
