For 22 years, Jamie Blecher, DC has helped his patients in the greater Princeton area reach their health care goals. Always evolving to provide state-of-the-art care, Dr. Blecher has expanded his practice to encompass six key facets of total wellness: Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Pain Management, Neuropathy, Aesthetics, and Body Shaping. To reflect this broad-based wellness delivery practice, his Princeton-Hightstown Road office has changed its name to Align Health and Wellness.
An accomplished practitioner of Manipulation Under Anesthesia, he has developed a program to help people get out of pain and correct the underlying cause of the problem. In addition, Blecher has a special interest and training in interpreting spinal trauma with MRI.
His practice has recently begun using the revolutionary MLS Laser technology. This cutting-edge system manages pain, reduces inflammation, and speeds recovery without resorting to shots, drugs, or surgery. Painless and comfortable, MLS Laser Therapy eases acute and chronic conditions, arthritis and bursitis pain, sports injuries, occupational injuries, and repetitive motion injuries, among others. Treatments take less than 10 minutes each and are completely painless and comfortable.
Studies have shown this new, FDA-approved technology has proven effective in regenerating nerves. This is a particular boon to chemotherapy patients who might have developed neuropathy and speeds post-operative recovery from many surgical procedures. It works by using two specific synchronized waves of light energy that enter the damaged cells and stimulate intercellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds the recovery of damaged cells.
More than 3,000 studies in the last three decades validate the efficacy of laser therapy. Laser therapy was cleared by the FDA in 2002 and is currently being used by a variety of medical specialties and sports teams nationwide.
This therapy is particularly effective for patients with peripheral neuropathy. Sufferers have long been told that there is nothing to be done to alleviate the pain. Peripheral neuropathy is a disorder of the peripheral nerves — the motor, sensory, and autonomic nerves that connect the spinal cord to muscles, skin, and internal organs. It usually affects the hands and feet, causing weakness, numbness, tingling, pain, and most debilitating, balance problems.
There are many causes of neuropathy, but most commonly it can be attributed to diabetes. However, if diagnosed early, peripheral neuropathy can often be controlled and corrected. MLS Laser Therapy is paired with a personalized treatment plan that includes additional in-office treatments, treatments to be done at home, supplements, and nutrition information all designed to help patients live a healthy life again.
Align Health and Wellness provides patients with programs and services to keep the entire body working smoothly and efficiently. Carefully designed managed care programs promote healing and freedom from pain.
