Founded by an interventional pain physician and a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation, Performance Spine & Sports Medicine takes a team-oriented approach to treating injury and illness. The interdisciplinary, nonsurgical institute develops a physician-directed plan for each client that may incorporate physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments with a whole-body approach, and acupuncture. These plans address anything from herniated discs and sprains to migraines and chronic pain. Whether the experts are treating nervous-system maladies or assessing sports performance with OptoJump technology and simulated locker-room pep talks, they continually check in with each patient to make sure treatments meet individual needs.
Board-certified podiatrists Dr. Andrew Schmierer and Dr. Craig Shapero use their combined expertise to lead a helpful, professional staff that cares for patients and adds a kick to lagging steps with foot treatments suitable for anyone. Aside from helping alleviate the discomfort of corns, calluses, and arthritis, they also help athletes by repairing sprains, analyzing gaits, and teaching them fancy footwork to incorporate into touchdown dances. The doctors tend to all parts of the feet from the heel and arch to the ankle and toenails, and they can perform everything from medical-grade pedicures to laser treatments for fungal nails.
After deciding to be a doctor at the age of 9, Dr. Peter Wishnie entered the world of sports, gaining a firsthand look at the orthopedic issues unique to athletes. Years later, he began applying this knowledge, working alongside three podiatrists to help make feet happy enough to applaud themselves awkwardly. His team treats and prevents a wide array of orthopedic, skin, nail, and diabetic foot issues with clinical pedicures and nail-oriented care.
At each of its 18 New Jersey and Pennsylvania locations, Advanced Laser Center's teams of licensed staffers harnesses noninvasive lasers and lPL technology for a series of skin- and health-enhancing treatments. Lasers remove unwanted hair from bodies and control cases of rosacea, or cold-laser sessions aid in weight loss and diminish the urge to smoke cigarettes or strange meats. Light beams in IPL treatments, meanwhile, enrich epidermises during skin-rejuvenation and skin-tightening sessions. To balance out the laser-centric services, Advanced Laser Center also beautifies clients with chemical peels and Botox treatments.
Doctors of Chiropractic David Fischer, Debra Maibach, and Donna Nicolich have been adjusting spines for years at Fischer Health & Rehabilitation. Those spines belong to athletes, retirees, pregnant women, working folk, and even newborns. They all suffer from stressors on their nervous system, which can lead to migraines, back pain, and tingling in the limbs and phantom limbs. In addition to manual adjustments, the staff helps alleviate patients' pain with physical therapy, massage therapy, and individualized doctor-assisted weight loss.
People can't usually have their teeth and feet cared for in the same place, but husband-and-wife doctors Corinne Kauderer and Allan Goldfarb aim to change that with Dyker Heights Advanced Foot & Dental Wellness Center. As a board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Kauderer blasts fungus from nails with a cold laser, heals diabetic foot ulcers, and eases pain from muscles and bones with electronic-pulse therapy. She also draws on skills as a nutrition and weight-loss counselor to help clients toward better health. Seasoned dentist Dr. Goldfarb, meanwhile, straightens and polishes teeth with cosmetic treatments ranging from bridges and implants to bleaching and Zoom whitening.
