At DOCTORFITNESS, I take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to my patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services I offer in my Hackensack office.
I provide spinal corrections utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Jeffrey Schlesinger has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Stretching & Strengthening Exercises
I teach my patients and clients special individualized exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
There may be pain and/or discomfort of various degrees in the back and neck due to the ligaments and joints loosening up. Upon referral from numerous local OBGYN's, Dr. Schlesinger utilizes his years of experience and a specialized Lloyd Chiropractic examination/ treatment table which offer's extremely gentle chiropractic care to help realign the pelvis and spine to decrease pressure on the ligaments and muscles that surround it to lessen one's pain and promote a healthy pregnancy and child birth.
Lifestyle & Nutritional Advice
I often find it helpful to "coach" my patients and clients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently so that they don’t aggravate their particular health challenge. I also provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance my patient ́s return to optimal health. My goal is to help every patient and client achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle. Jeffrey Schlesinger can provide a structured lifestyle and/or nutritional program based on your individual needs. I recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.
Therapies & Techniques
Cold Laser Therapy -
I utilize cold laser therapy to help aid in tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. Cold laser therapy uses low wavelengths of light targeted towards your body’s tissue to alleviate pain caused by injury or aging and accelerate the healing process.
Muscle stimulation therapy, or e-Stim, is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation to treat pain and muscle spasms. At DOCTORFITNESS we use this therapy to help build strength and prevent atrophy in patients with muscle injuries.
I an alternative medicine therapy called myofascial release that is used for treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on treatment that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles.
Therapeutic Massage -
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. I may provide specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Therapeutic Ultrasound -
Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves above the range of human hearing to interact with tissues in the body that are either modified or destroyed. It creates a deep heat and increases the blood flow to the area being treated to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation.
Trigger Point Therapy -
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
