I can say with all sincerity that going to Dr. Nik has been a life-changing experience for me! After almost a decade of tests and several unsuccessful diagnoses, I had just about given up on ever being able to walk normal again. Without explanation, my legs had become extremely weak. I was dragging my right foot, which caused me to trip several times. I had come to believe that “this was just the way it would be” and at the same time, having an extremely hard time accepting it. Two Neurologists and several MDs were unable to pinpoint the root cause of my weakness. After a thorough work up and medical history intake, Dr. Nik was able to diagnose and successfully treat my condition through a series of cutting edge treatments called “ART” (Active Release Technique) and a regime of “at home” exercises. His approach to rehab was far beyond the typical “mat and stretch band” exercises I had experienced with previous rehab-therapies. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Nik for helping me gain back my life and wholeheartedly recommend him as an incredibly gifted doctor and man of integrity.THANK YOU DR.NIK!Becky

Talent and skill are often used interchangeably in perceptions. I believe that Dr. Niklaus Delfavero has a natural talent when interacting with people. Dr. Niklaus Delfavero is patient, he has always gone the extra mile to explain things to me whenever I was confused or frustrated about my health and wellness. He takes the time to truly understand my expectations, consistently providing treatment until I feel better than when I walked in ….all without ever making me feel rushed out the door. Dr. Niklaus Delfavero is a valuable asset to not only 1st Choice Sports Rehab Center but to the physical therapy industry at large because of his skills that were developed after putting in a lot of time and hard work to become a subject matter expert in his field. 1st Choice Rehab Center is a caring facility which means they take the time to learn something about each of their patients so that they can better care for us during our visits. I highly recommend 1st Choice Sports Rehab Center, LLC!

Finally, A Real Alternative to SurgeryThis is an unqualified recommendation for Dr. Nik DelFavero. •Real Concern for Patient WelfareHe is genuinely interested in the health and well-being of his patients. It is not blue smoke and mirrors. •Thinking Outside the Box, or Just ThinkingDr. DelFavero does not rely on the “Chiropractic Cook Book” approach to treatment. •Extraordinary Staff of ProfessionalsHis colleagues, and staff work together to make a visit a healing experience.In sum, I write this review, not based on a few visits to Dr. DelFavero, but years of experience. He does not just put a Band-Aid on the problem temporarily masking the pain. He treats the cause.You will not find better chiropractors than Dr. DelFavero and his colleagues. He is simply the best at what he does.EO Smith

Dr Cho is the best! I have been a patient here as needed for many years. Dr. Cho has an expertise that can not be matched. With a few questions and movements he identifies the issue and heals me every time. I have been seen for a variety of issues and every time I leave not only feeling better, but feeling better than I thought was possible. He is also so kind and easy to talk to and I never wait for my scheduled appointment. The other staff I have met have also been top notch. This is a great place!

Can't sing Dr. Sadri's praises at 1st Choice Healthcare enough! I have recurring hamstring problems which can keep me from competing in running races and triathlons. Dr. Sadri has saved me numerous times from this fate! He works his magic with ART and Graston. Can't say the treatment is fun, but it is well worth it! The entire experience at 1st Choice is first rate. Latrisha always squeezes me in when I need to come and Victor's awesome attitude and easy touch go a long way in pre and post therapy.

1st Choice is fantastic. I first met them after I participated in an athletic event and when I had a back pain issue a year later, knew that I would see them for it. They took their time to assess all of my health - not just the pain point. I've been pleased to recommend them to family and friends, as well. My back pain has been almost non-existent thanks to the exercises and stretches my dr. recommended, and I love how easily I can get an appointment if I need it. Great staff!

I saw Dr. Stephen LaScala for a foot injury. HE IS MAGICAL!!! He is booked, but if you are flexible you can get in pretty quickly. The staff is very friendly and responsive. He spent time listening to my problem, worked on the soft tissue injury and I felt better almost immediately. He works with major athletes and "weekend warriors" and people like me who are attempting to get back into shape!

1st Choice Sports Rehab Center is amazing. I first went there back in April of 2016 and saw Dr. Cho. He was awesome. He immediately recognized an issue I had been having with my hamstring and used Active Release Technique (ART) to provide relief. This place is top notch. Highly recommend!!!

I found this office to be a great place to have my back pain evaluated honestly and during each visit Dr. DelFavero re-evaluated the treatment plan to make sure that we were going in the right direction. I appreciate the friendly office and professional care I receive here.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
