Backsmart Wellness Center Featured on News Channel NJ 12

EDISON, N.J., April 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- News 12 New Jersey featured Backsmart Wellness Center on "Spotlight on NJ" with Della Crews in late March. The show focused on the health benefits of integrated wellness care, including chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy, for helping patients heal following an injury and better managing pain. The show includes interviews with current patients that discuss why these patients chose Backsmart and how the center's integrated approach to injury rehabilitation and pain management is making a difference in their lives.

Backsmart Wellness Center announced that the practice was recently featured by News 12 New Jersey on a 30 minute health and wellness segment. Highlights from the News 12 New Jersey show can be viewed on YouTube here:

"We are thrilled to be featured by News 12 New Jersey as an example of how proactive wellness care improves an individual's overall quality of life," said Middlesex chiropractor Dr. Michael Lagana.

The Channel 12 news team interviewed current patients about their experience with Backsmart Wellness and why they chose this practice. Many patients cited the practice's personalized care and impressive customer service as key reasons for their decision. The patients also discussed the ease with which multiple services can be accessed from one location and the benefits of a team of specialized medical professionals working together.

News 12 New Jersey has previously interviewed Dr. Lagana about the benefits of integrated wellness services. The YouTube video is available here:

"Backsmart is a one-stop wellness center featuring several specialties under one roof," said Dr. Lagana. "Chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, physical therapy, massage therapy and weight loss all work together to enhance a patient's well being. As a patient, going to multiple locations and coordinating with multiple providers, however, can be a huge logistical nightmare. I believed there was a better way. That's why I founded Backsmart in 1998 with the primary goal of providing integrated care in one place."

During the interview, Dr. Lagana also discussed how Backsmart Wellness now provides wellness programs for the cities of Perth Amboy and Edison. These programs include a medical doctor for preventative care screenings, an acupuncturist, a physical therapist, an oral cancer specialist, a chiropractor, a massage therapist and a nutritionist. During the city wellness programs, these health care professionals discuss how individuals can make basic changes at home and at work to enhance their overall health.

"Our wellness programs reflect our commitment to empowering all individuals to lead healthy, active lives," said Dr. Lagana. "Staying healthy at work also benefits employers by reducing the number of sick days, increasing productivity, and lowering overall health care costs. This also means a better environment for everyone at work."

Backsmart Wellness Center provides integrated wellness care and comprehensive services, including chiropractic adjustments, non-surgical spinal decompression, weight loss counseling, acupuncture, physical therapy, massage therapy, and smoking cessation.
