Monika graduated with a degree in Physical Therapy from the Academy of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation in Wroclaw, Poland in 1999. She came to the United States in 2000 and quickly received her license in New Jersey. Monika enjoys working in outpatient orthopedics and sports medicine settings. She has a special interest in soft tissue and knows what treatment methods work best to help patients recover quickly. Because Monika strongly believes the most valuable asset a therapist possesses is her hands, she uses her manual skills and over 10 years of experience to decrease pain by finding the source of the pain and eliminating it by treating soft tissue dysfunctions while restoring strength with a custom-tailored exercise program. Monika has continuously expanded her knowledge and skills with Great Lakes seminars and multiple continuing education courses in joint mobilization, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, orthotics, sports medicine massage, musculoskeletal dysfunction and vestibular rehabilitation (BPPV).
In her free time, Monika loves to spend time with her husband and three children. Together they enjoy the NJ beaches and hiking in state parks, and if Monika has down time she enjoys watching a good movie. She also enjoys cooking with fresh organic ingredients and entertaining her polish family and friends.

"Approximately 2 months ago I became depressed with experiencing vertigo and tinnitus. The doctors were exhausted with treatment options and they told me I would have to tolerate my symptoms. After coming to see Monika I was able to control my nausea, as well, assist me with building muscle so I was more comfortable with walking. The workers here are very likable, educated and compatible. I enjoyed my time here at Old Bridge Spine and Wellness"

"Monica is a true professional .She is highly skilled therapist who worked on my knee and hand. When I started with her my pain level was between 7 and 8, sometimes more. She and her trained aides, Rita and Marco helped to supervise my exercises as well. Monica worked on my hand and knees with many Pt techniques including laser, manual techniques and gratston. After less than 12 sessions, my hand and knee was between 0 to 2 at most. I plan to recommend others to see Monica for any Pt needs. "

"I had pretty bad back pain for about two weeks when other conservative measures failed to alleviate my pain. The pain was causing me to limit my gym workouts which was interfering with my quality of life. My first session with Monika, she performed the Graston technique for me. It was the best I have ever felt after one session. This is now one month later and the pain has not returned. I am very happy and grateful for wonderful individuals such as Monika."
"I came in to see Monika to help me with vertigo that i began experiencing after coming back from vacation. The symptoms were very troubling and scary since it kept me from driving and performing daily tasks at home. After just the first visit with Monika, I began to feel much better and after 2 weeks, I was back to normal! Monika was great with listening to my symptoms and creating an effective treatment plan to alleviate the vertigo and dizziness. I am very happy with my experience at old bridge spine and wellness."

-Mary B (8/13/16)
"I started PT with Dr.Monika right after extensive surgery. I knew it would take a long time to recover. Through the whole experience Dr. Monica encouraged me. When I first began Therapy I walked in one day and told her how discouraged I felt and was second guessing my decision to have the operation. She told me to be patient and that the PT was going to work. 5 months later, I am done with Therapy and I am now able to do much of what I was doing prior to the surgery. I know that I am leaving with a foundation to get even better. I love the other doctors and therapists in the practice. They all made my journey that much easier. Friendly and professional group of people. I would highly recommend Dr. Monika."

"Should you have the need for Physical Therapy, Old Bridge Spine and Wellness is an excellent place to go. Dr. Monika Lewczuk saw me through my recent post-op therapy for my lower back. Dr. Lewczuk, is a very special kind of person who has the knowledge, compassion, and skills to get you back to a state of good health. Dr. Lewczuk spends the time with you and fully explains your treatment and makes you feel comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Lewczuk, and the entire staff from Dr. Peter Bufano, D.C to all the aids at Old Bridge Spine and Wellness. There is no doubt they "made my bad back feel good"."

I appreciated the fact that everyone knew my name by the second week and greeted me as soon as I walked in. Monika was my PT and she was very resourceful and helpful; I had a quicker recovery than excepted. Dr. Amna was my chiropractor, was great and also referred me to great nutritional tips. The PT aides were very helpful and not once did I feel alone or lost there. Overall, I highly recommend Old Bridge Spine and Wellness."
