As an employee at NJ Spine and Wellness, I can not only tell everyone how amazing our staff and facility is, but from first hand treatment I can certainly vouch for the success stories. I treated with Dr. Mike for a few weeks shy of two months and our main goal was to get me pain free in my neck and lower back. I have terrible posture working here (my own fault!) and Dr. Mike convinced me to start treating with him. He genuinely cares about the well-being of not only his patients, but his staff as well! Within a month of challenging exercises, I am now back in the gym pain-free after about two years. I really never could have done this without the guidance, support, and motivation of Dr. Mike! 🙂

Dr. Mike is a compassionate and most knowledgeable . I came to him with very painful knees, limping, and a lot of pain in my hands. I am not limping anymore and have less pain. You need to listen to him and do as he says and you will definitely feel better!!!!! Thank you Dr. Mike

I came in with 2 herniated discs in my neck and an old rotator cuff injury from years of weightlifting and improper form. I was in such bad shape I thought I would never be able to lift again. Thanks to Dr. Mike I was able to change what I do in the gym. I’m very stubborn and do not like change but Mike convinced me to try an all new routine. He is considerate and compassionate and if something I did bothered my neck or shoulder he always found an alternative or variation that would work for me. He was able to customize my own personal exercise routine that I could do at home or at the gym pain free. He is very knowledgeable with anatomy and really knows his exercise routines. He also practices what he preaches. He is in great shape as well so it gives you more confidence to follow what he does. Mike is very dedicated and goes out of his way to get you better. He even worked with me on his off time in the gym to fix what I was doing wrong when lifting (as well as show me all new exercises). He watched my form and was there to correct me when my form was off. Now my shoulder and neck does not hurt anymore when I exercise. Mike is a top physical therapist and there’s no one else I would go to when it comes to rehabbing an injury. In fact the staff at OBSW (including the chiropractors, therapists, trainers, and assistants) is the nicest office group you will ever meet. Excellent work, thanks Mike!

Dr. Mike was great! Went to him for a sprained ankle and I saw increased mobility after just the first visit! Dr. Mike is professional, knowledgeable and very passionate about what he does. He personalized my program and worked with me each visit to closely monitor my progress and adjust as necessary. Could not be happier with my experience with Dr. Mike and could not be happier with my results!

Walking into therapy I was extremely hesitant and a little skeptical. The minute Dr. Mike greeted me I knew I was going to be in good hands. Dr. Mike is a true professional whose skills and compassion goes above and beyond. He and his team, Lauren, James, Vinny, Sean and Taylor to name just a few are extremely dedicated and experienced in their field ( whomever I left out I apologize). With a broken elbow that caused me so much pain and discomfort, Dr. Mike had me moving and pain free in no time. His passion and love for his job is extremely evident as you see him in action. He is kind, friendly and extremely detailed with every patient. He and his team work effortlessly together to ensure that every patient is getting the best therapy for their particular need. Dr. Mike I thank you for your patience, dedication and hard work which brought me to a 100% recovery in such a short time.
