“I have osteoarthritis in my knees as well as spinal stenosis. Each step was painful and I could not walk far without stopping”. If I sat for a while, I needed help to stand up and then I would have to wait before I could start to walk again. My internist recommended Dr. Dandrea and so I limped my way into Monmouth Pain and Rehab in 2011. I was evaluated and a plan of treatment was started for me. I did physical therapy and had an epidural which relieved my sciatica type pain in the left leg. I had homeopathic injections which relieved my knee pain (thank you Dr. Bodner). I am currently receiving acupuncture ( a big thanks to Ranko and now the wonderful Nicole ) and as always, my chiropractic treatment from Dr. Murray, Dr. Chludzinski and Dr. Dandrea. The entire staff is truly caring and friendly. My life has improved so much as I am more active and have a lot less pain!” Joanne D.
“There really are no words to express how grateful I am to them.” Three months ago, I was diagnosed with a Baker’s cyst. It was pressing on the knee which has been weakened due to arthritis. I could not stand without being in extreme pain. My GP recommended I seek physical therapy. Having never faced anything like this, I did not know where to turn. My best friend recommended Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation in Red Bank. I had nothing to lose. I could not deal with the pain. I was greeted at the desk by Nicole who graciously led me to the doctor’s office. I was examined by Dr. Dandrea. He assured me he would have me up and around in no time. I have to be honest and say I didn’t believe him. He explained the course of treatment and I was on my way. Part of treatment included injections into the knee to ease the pain. This procedure was put in the capable hands of Dr Chang and his assistant Corey. Both were professional and caring. I also was offered acupuncture. I will admit to being skeptical but in Candice’s gentle hands and calming voice I found relief. Of course the physical therapist, Roger, was terrific. He taught me exercises that would strengthen the muscles around the knee. Finally at the end of every session, I was given an adjustment by Dr. Murray. His kindness and words of wisdom made me feel that I would be better. I am thankful to everyone who works there. There really are no words to express how grateful I am to them.Nora J
