Dr. Bufano and Dr. Kazio have successfully treated over 5000 patients with a conservative approach to pain management. At Old Bridge Spine and Wellness, the conservative approach continues with Dr. Bufano and Dr. Kazio's commitment to patient care with the recent addition of Deep Laser Light Therapy LiteCure 1000 Litesource in the Matawan office.
Dr. Bufano who is an avid New York Yankee and Boston Celtic fan is providing his patients the same service the elite athletes of the New York Yankees and Boston Celtics are receiving. Laser Light therapy is only being used by a select handful of doctors. Since Dr. Bufano is committed to wellness through a conservative approach, Lite Cure founders think it is a great synergy for Dr. Bufano and the whole team at Old Bridge Spine and Wellness to provide Old Bridge pain patients with this new innovative technology.
The main function of deep laser light therapy is to reduce both acute and chronic inflammation by penetrating damaged cells and regenerating them into healthy ones. Deep laser treatments, in conjunction with chiropractic care, physical therapy and massage therapy, has effectively helped patients with neck, back, shoulder, knee, wrist pain (carpal tunnel), plantar fascitis, and hip pain. Patients on average see an 80% improvement in their condition within the first month of care, without the need for pain medicine or injections.
Phase 1 - Dr. Bufano's success has been utilizing many different orthopedic tests to effectively evaluate and diagnose a patient's conditions. Patient conditions can range from acute to chronic and can sometimes include both types of pain. Proper evaluation and formulation of a treatment plan is key for phase 1 in patient care.
Phase 2 - With a comprehensive approach, each member of Old Bridge Spine and Wellness takes an active role on monitoring a patient's response to the treatment plan put together in phase one. Phase 2 is crucial because this is the point that the deficits seen in phase 1 are eliminated and the patient receives maximum strength, flexibility, and stabilization.
Phase 3 - Maintaining the success patients have under the care of Phases 1 and 2 at Old Bridge Spine and Wellness is what separates us apart from all other pain management clinics. The proper maintenance of frequent chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy sessions, and the use of home exercise therapy provided by the physical therapist, allows our patients to achieve optimal health and lasting results.
Pain management doesn't have to involve strong, addictive drugs that sap your energy and clarity of thought. In fact, in many cases, it can be accomplished with no drugs at all. Anyone looking for a drug-free, surgery-free way to control their pain should consult with a chiropractor in Old Bridge to learn about effective methods that meet these requirements.
Massage therapy reduces muscle tension, and this helps alleviate pain in several ways. Tense muscles constrict blood flow, which reduces the number of nutrients, hormones, and other beneficial body substances that get to the muscles. The tension in the muscles also increases pain, so reducing the tension helps pain levels decrease. Stress is also reduced by massage, and since stress makes the pain more intense, reducing it helps lower your pain levels while improving your overall mental state.
Unlike massage, physical therapy is typically used specifically to help with recovery from injury, surgery, and other such physical traumas. Exercises and other methods are used not only to reduce pain but help you regain strength and mobility. This helps you avoid further injury while allowing you to successfully partake in more activities.
Problems with the spine can result in irritation of the nerves, and this is often the cause of pain that has been hard to pin down. One example of this sort of pain is a searing or stabbing pain in a leg that doesn't seem to have anything wrong with it upon direct examination. A chiropractor, however, might diagnose sciatica – pain caused by an impingement of the sciatic nerve where it leaves the spine at the lower back. Then, effective treatment can finally be delivered so that the pain ends.
There are many problems that baffle non-chiropractic doctors because a typical exam looks at the part that hurts instead of the nerves leading to it. In these cases, a trip to a chiropractor can provide the key that will release you from the cycle of pain, ineffective or dangerous medication, and mental anguish.
