Although Kathleen hasn’t worked with me directly she still knows my routine and always says hello. From watching her with other patients I know she is smart and understands each patients needs.

I had a truly amazing experience with Kathleen during my shoulder surgery recovery. From day one she made me feel comfortable. She got my personality right away and knew when to push me or when to let me take it easy. I really enjoyed my time with Kathleen. If I ever needed to come back to NJSW I would request her. She’s funny, knowledgeable and easy going. Thank you for all your hard work, and of course the laughs!

Kathleen is terrific at motivation and keeping me on my toes with new techniques. I feel 100% better and owe her a lot gratitude and honestly can’t thank her enough for how great I feel.

Kathleen my all time favorite Athletic Trainer. She is the best. Kathleen has a ton of patience. When working with you, she demonstrates and monitors how each exercise needs to be done. She encourages you to keep pushing yourself to get the most out of your time at Spine and Wellness. Thanks Kathleen. You really helped me so much.

I spent four months working with Kathleen during my physical therapy for several chronic back conditions. After understanding my strengths and weaknesses, Kathleen continued to put together exercise programs to help strengthen my back and leg muscles. She even researched water exercises after I expressed a desire to exercise at a local indoor heated pool. Her warmth, sense of humor, and expertise were much appreciated. Thank you so much for your help, Kathleen!

When I came here, I was unable to walk (even when trying with a cane). After working with Monika, I am able to walk without a cane!! She made me feel like a new person living a renewed life. By working with her I have developed strength in my legs, back, and buttocks. The care here is great, everybody took the time out make sure I did my exercises correctly. Overall the staff is very helpful.
