I came to advanced wellness with 2 arthritic knees. I wasn’t able to go for walks and even going up and down stairs was a problem. The team at advanced wellness was able to recommend a treatment plan that was changed my life. I had gel injections in my knees and I noticed a 75% improvement. I have also strengthened my legs and I am now seeing even more improvement. I can honestly say my active lifestyle was given back to me. I can’t say enough about the staff. You are greeted with a smile on every visit, I never wait for an appointment and the care is top notch.
Peter N- Freehold
I was told I would need surgery to repair a torn meniscus. I decided to try a more conservative approach. Dr.Yen advise me to try a PRP injection along with physical therapy and acupuncture. I am close to being pain free and I don’t eben think about my knees anymor. I am now able to do work in the yard and I am also back to taking long walks. The care at Advanced Wellness is exceptional. The team approach they take is something I never experienced. I would highly recommend this practice for any pain you may be suffering.
