The staff members at Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center perform an array of services to care for the bones, nerves, muscles, and connective tissues that make up the body. Some treatments include therapeutic massage, spinal adjustments, and exercise techniques designed to treat pain from common conditions without surgery or medication.
Doctors Joseph and Deborah Lozito created The Institute for Medical Weight Loss and Nutrition in an effort to curtail the nation's growing obesity epidemic. The two pool their 45 years of combined medical experience with the expertise of CBS 2 News–featured nutritionist Jennifer Burns Katafigiotis to develop customized weight-loss programs. The institute's weight-loss plans include a combination of meticulous medical analysis, hours-long tickle-fights, and meal replacements. The meal replacements have been shown to help participants adjust to healthier portion sizes and shed pounds.
Jersey Foot Care's podiatrist operates out of two clinics, where he casts a net of pedal wellness over northeastern New Jersey. The staff tackles both cosmetic and medical complaints, with surgical techniques and custom orthotics that can straighten hammer toes, smooth out bunions, and whisk away heel pain. Cognizant that some foot ailments leave patients in states of near-immobility, the team makes house calls for the homebound, elderly, or members of a toddler commune.
Not even x-rays see all. Dr. Henry Slomowitz recognized this more than a decade ago, becoming an early adopter of diagnostic ultrasound, which can identify problems that a foot might normally hide from an x-ray. Diagnostic ultrasound is only the tip of the technological iceberg—aided by his staff of four, Dr. Slomowitz performs laser nail-fungus treatments and radio-frequency heel pain relief, among other advanced services.
You don't need an appointment to see a licensed physician, nurse, or x-ray technician at one of Doctors Express' New Jersey locations. You just have to show up. Beyond urgent visits, each clinic offers everything from routine vaccinations and physicals to more sophisticated care such as lab work and drug screenings. To help keep wait times reasonable, some of their clinics offer online check-ins rather than spending years trying to invent a machine that stops time.
Dr. Gregory R. Zaccone has seen?and treated?his share of injuries. He got his fair share of that practice as an intern athletic trainer for the New York Giants mini camp, and also worked as an athletic trainer for college basketball and lacrosse teams. But in 2004, the board-certified physical trainer gave up his spot on the sidelines to establish Spectrum Physical Therapy & Athletic Training, where he and his staff now help clients recover through personalized therapy treatments.
Today athletes are just one kind of patients he treats. He also facilitates physical therapy sessions for people suffering from back pain, carpal tunnel, and arthritis. What's more, Dr. Zaccone devised the Zaccone Injury Prevention Program, a sport-specific treatment plan for athletes recovering from all manner of pain. The sport-specific treatments help athletes return to top form, whether their goal is to sprint down the field during a game again or fold themselves into their gym bags after the final whistle. And yet, you don't need to be hurt to get the doc's help: Spectrum's medical fitness regimens also pair clients with personal trainers who create fitness plans designed to improve endurance, muscle strength, and flexibility.
