New Jersey physical therapist William Bell really helped my friend in a pinch

Neck Pain Treatment with physical therapy in New Jersey

Earlier this year, I had to really bundle up due to the inclement weather we had in New York and parts of New Jersey. It was really something to see an entire city, which is usually bustling with activity, to be shut down almost completely. Public transportation was one of the few ways to get around the city, and even that was having problems. That is almost unheard of in the “city that never sleeps”. The weather passed by and the conditions got better, as with all things. The very next week I got a call from my long time friend, Jim, who told me we was on his way to work one morning and got into a car accident when his car lost traction with the icy road. The accident wasn’t completely disastrous for him, but he did come away with a nasty case of whiplash.

He was living in the New Jersey area near Newark at the time, and I told him about this great physical therapist I met last year, William Bell. Bell was someone I met while visiting his office in Cranford, New Jersey (777 Walnut Ave Cranford, NJ 07016). I had actually been looking around for someone who could treat my writer’s elbow and I came across Bell Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine. I passed along the information to my friend Jim, to give a call to his office and set up an appointment (908-389-6305). Right away, he told me he felt even just a little better when William picked up the phone and started to talk to him. When I heard that, I thought it was no wonder his motto is “hands on compassionate care”. When Jim got to the office, he was surprised at the care and attention he was given. Even though he knew he had a time slot to handle his physical therapy, it didn’t feel like that at all. He said it only took a couple of sessions, but in the next few weeks the shooting pains he had in his neck were almost completely gone. I have heard cases where people have to wear one of those funny neck braces for months to keep their neck stable and I thought for sure that Jim would have to wear one of these. I ran into Jim a few months later and he told me what a great experience he had with William Bell and that his neck pain was practically gone.

Whiplash is definitely something that can ruin someone’s day, and I can only imagine the sheer embarrassment of wearing one of those weird collars. I hope I don’t ever have to go through that, but if it ever happens at least I know one place where I can get it addressed. William Bell is very knowledgeable about physical therapy and has dealt with thousands of sports and occupational injuries throughout his 20-year career.

If you need a physical therapist because of an old football injury or maybe a case of writer’s elbow like myself, call William Bell at 908-389-6305. You can also read about the different kinds of treatments he offers at his website.

Breast Augmentation Staten Island Plastic Surgeon Elliot Heller, MD

Wanted to tell you about one of the most friendly and congenial breast augmentation plastic/cosmetic surgery Doctors I have ever met over the last ten years  – Elliot Heller, MD.  He has got such a caring and patient bedside manner  – even for a New Yorker – that I refer all my friends who are interested in breast augmentation (in New York City & Staten Island) to go to staten island and get a free plastic surgery consultation with Elliot Heller, MD at his Staten Island Plastic Surgery center.  Several years ago I actually met Dr. Heller at his Staten Island facility at 1424 Richmond Ave, Staten Island, NY 10314 (he has since opened a new plastic surgery facility in Manhattan at 150 E 61st Street, New York, NY 10065), when a close girl friend, Amanda, was having difficulty choosing a breast augmentation cosmetic surgeon.  She was confused because she really didn’t know how to choose a plastic surgeon, whether to pick saline or silicon breast implants or what size she really needed.  Amanda, thought since I spent the last ten years working with cosmetic surgeons, and medical doctors, I might be able to help her.

For your edification I have added this breast augmentation plastic surgery video (below) of Staten Island Breast Augmentation specialist Elliot Heller, M.D.

Now let me digress – breast augmentation cosmetic surgery is an important decision for many women, not only for models and celebrities or young woman who want to increase the size of their breast, but woman like Amanda, hard working New York’ers, that have had children, are in their 40s and want to bring their bodies back to that pre-pregnancy, youthful look they once had.  After all, most clothes, especially halter tops, bathing suits, dresses and negligees (lingerie for Manhattanites) are all designed for breast that are proportionate with hips and after having children and getting older,  women’s breast droop, drop, fall, stretch and loose volume, causing clothes not to fit properly.  Ambers, biggest issue was not being comfortable in sexy clothing and not being able to buy off-the-rack in New York City fashion stores, besides dropping two bra sizes after kids.

So I agreed to go with Amanda to see a couple of New York breast augmentation cosmetic surgeons and we first saw Dr. Heller at his Staten Island office because he offered a few things that other breast augmentation specialist did not offer in New York – Free breast augmentation consultations and free computerized imaging.  I explained to Amanda that many cosmetic surgeons have potential patients pay for a consultation, while this established practice is acceptable, when you are not sure what you want exactly, a complimentary consultation is a lot less stressful and affordable.  Additionally, computerized imaging is really important in my experience, since it gives you a visible example of what the breast augmentation surgeon has in mind and can realistically achieve during your breast augmentation plastic surgery. Dr. Heller offered this time consuming practice for free to help breast augmentation (and rhinoplasty) patients see what they would like like after breast surgery.

First impressions are the most important and when we walked in to his Staten Island cosmetic facility, the staff was cordial and we waited only five minutes.  We were escorted to Dr. Heller’s consultation room and when he entered he immediately put Amanda at ease.  He wanted to know what Amanda’s concerns were, he didn’t suggest anything.  When she spoke about breast size and her confusion, Dr. Heller showed her different implants, and real photographs of his Staten Island patients and made recommendations based on her concerns, desires and what could realistically be achieved during breast augmentation surgery.

Needless to say, Amanda immediately felt comfortable and didn’t need to meet any other New York Plastic Surgeons. That was back in 2005, and Amanda has been very happy with her breast augmentation cosmetic surgery, and personally, I noticed that a psychic change had happened to her after a few months.  She seemed to have more confidence and take even more interest in her health and looks,  She is a very attractive successful friend and when ever other friends are interested in breast augmentation cosmetic surgery I tell them visit the Staten Island breast augmentation plastic surgery facility with a trusted surgeon who is friendly, congenial and offers free breast augmentation consultations and free computerized imaging.

Additionally, Dr. Heller opened a New York Breast Augmentation facility in Manhattan at 150 East 61 Street, so his New York City patients no longer have to travel to Staten Island for cosmetic surgery.  For more information about Elliot Heller, MD and to see videos from his Staten Island and New York City patients visit his website New York Plastic Surgery.
