HEALTH & WELLNESS Anthony Rabara Studio for Pilates

The Anthony Rabara Studio for Pilates is an exceptional place for Pilates study. Anthony is a Master teacher, and one of a few who has direct lineage to Joseph Pilates. The studio is fully equipped with every apparatus that the genius Pilates built since the early 1920s, from the smallest 6-inch apparatus to the largest 12-foot tower. Anthony and his team of teachers maintain the quality and spirit of his work and officially train teachers. The studio not a gym. There is no membership fee. Prices are comparable to other places that offer Pilates. One should know the difference between a Pilates “based” workout and the real deal. There are clubs opening up all the time, but they combine other athletics with Pilates and they call it Pilates. It is not. Oftentimes their training is insufficient; perhaps only one to six month’s training, so they will never know the scope of this wonderful method of balancing the body. Take a look at our studio, where there is ONE discipline to help the highlevel athlete (the skier, the tri-athlete, the ball player); those with physical issues whether it be a recovering hip replacement, arthritis, or back ailments; as well as those who simply want to strengthen core muscles and correct posture and add balance. On any given day, you may see the fit person and a person referred to us by a Princeton physiatrist or orthopedist in our studio. Pilates is an equal opportunity activity for all ages. Whoever the client is, they leave the studio feeling taller and more physically fit. Our experienced teachers bring out the best in this technique and the best in the client. 392 Wall Street, Princeton. ( 609 ) 921-7990 ; w w w. rabarapilates.com.

Good Grief

Grief is a public health issue. According to Dr. Robert Block, past president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, “Adverse Childhood Experiences are the single greatest unaddressed public health threat facing our nation today.” Childhood bereavement is not a public health outlier; it is a consistently unaddressed public health threat. According to the JAG Institute, one out of seven children experience the death of a parent or sibling before the age of 25 in New Jersey. The lack of attention childhood bereavement receives is, in part, the result of this public health threat falling victim to a culture that is uncomfortable with its mortality. This discomfort comes at an extraordinary cost to children, who find themselves in a world in which adults and institutions do not know how to address the emotional, physical, and intellectual needs of their grief. “Childhood bereavement

is a public health threat because on the other side of death awaits diseases of despair and toxic stress for those children who are not in responsive environments that provide support, empathy, and resources,” said Joe Primo, Good Grief CEO. “While grief is a normal part of the human situation, our culture’s lack of resources and responsiveness made available to children facing this adversity put them at risk.” Every month, Good Grief supports more than 750 participants at its Morristown, Princeton, Newark, and Jersey City locations. They support children in classrooms and at summer camp, educate their parents, and advocate for children through thought-leadership and national partnerships like Option B and the Funeral Service Foundation. While there is a wellspring across the nation with programs in many communities, there still is not nearly enough. There is no quick fix to childhood bereavement. Childhood bereavement requires all of us to think differently, respond empathically, and change how we care for and educate children. It starts with opening a dialogue about this difficult topic so that our discomfort is lessened and we can be fully present to our children, who will soon be the healthy adults we need them to become.

The most promising and innovative treatments include: Regenerative Medicine/ Stem Cell Therapy: Regenerative medicine is a fastgrowing, highly-developed treatment that helps the body heal or rebuild itself. Dr. Patel uses PRP and stem cell therapy to treat ailments, particularly low back or neck pain caused by degenerative vertebral discs or joint pain in the shoulders, hips, or knees caused by osteoarthritis. Medical Marijuana Therapy: The legalization of medical marijuana has brought new treatment options. “We are very excited by the potential of cannabis-based treatments and we comply fully with New Jersey’s evolving regulations,” says Dr. Patel. Minimally Invasive Therapy: Dr. Patel offers a wide variety of minimally invasive therapy including epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal cord stimulation to patients suffering from herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis. His goal is to help his patients avoid surgery, and regain functionality at the same time. T hanks to these and other game-changing treatments, pain levels can be greatly reduced or eliminated and quality of life enhanced. Says Dr. Patel, “Stop your pain.

A concussion is caused by a blow to the head or the body with an impulsive force to the head that can disrupt the brain’s physiology. When a player is hit in the head, it’s important to immediately remove them from play for the day and look for signs and symptoms of a concussion that include headaches, dizziness, loss of consciousness, confusion, vomiting, vision changes, and amnesia. If the player exhibits any of these, they should be examined by a doctor before returning to play. Led by Arlene Goodman, MD, a specialist in pediatric and adolescent concussion, the Saint Peter’s Sports Medicine Institute is the premier provider of concussion care in the Central New Jersey region. The expert staff provides comprehensive evaluations and management of concussions with the goal of helping the athlete heal quickly and preventing longterm consequences. To avoid a concussion, athletes should be encouraged to follow good sportsmanship, proper technique, and be sure to wear properly fitting equipment.

Concierge Medicine

There’s a new trend in healthcare, and it’s gaining momentum in our area. By Sarah Emily Gilbert (Originally published in Princeton Magazine) Dr. Barbara A. Brown (left) and Dr. Lynne B. Kossow of Princeton Lifestyle Medicine.

F

or the past few years, Dr. Lynne B. Kossow and Dr. Barbara A. Brown of Princeton Lifestyle Medicine have offered their patients far more than the traditional primary care practice. Most doctors see 25-30 patients a day for an average of 15 minutes, but Drs. Kossow and Brown see six to eight patients a day for up to an hour. In addition to providing treatment for acute illnesses, the doctors act as their clients’ healthcare coaches through Lifestyle Medicine, a scientific approach to patient wellness by effecting changes in areas such as diet, physical activity, and stress management. With the current shortage of primary care physicians and the abundance of high volume practices, this type of individualized attention is rare. However, by switching to a concierge format, doctors like Kossow and Brown are able to practice medicine that consists of this broad-spectrum care. Concierge medicine, also known as retainer-based medicine, is an umbrella term for private medical care wherein patients pay an out-of-pocket fee in exchange for enhanced care. Born in the 1990s, concierge medicine was once thought of as a service for the wealthy that charged patients a lofty fee for luxury medicine. In recent years, it has evolved to accommodate patients across all income brackets, leading to expanding interest among patients and their primary care doctors. According to a survey released by the American Academy of Private Physicians at the AAPP 2015 Fall Summit, more than 45 percent of 862 independent physicians would consider a concierge or similar membership model in the next three years. This may be due in part to our aging population needing increased and varied medical services, leading to an imbalanced patient/doctor ratio. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act has increased the number of insured patients, putting a further strain on primary care doctors. As a result, physicians are often unable to dedicate enough time to each patient. In the hopes of increasing both job and patient satisfaction in a financially sustainable way, primary physicians like Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown are looking toward concierge medicine. “Where conventional medicine is failing is in the prevention and reversal of chronic diseases that are becoming an epidemic in the United States today,” explain the doctors. “The current insurance model is built upon a problembased economic reimbursement that encourages doctors to address medical problems very quickly. This leads to most doctors rushing to see 25-30 patients per day in order to make ends meet…This is not how we have ever practiced. We always want to have the time to address the root cause of diseases that are preventable today.” Lifestyle Medicine is a 21st century approach to healthcare that consolidates the very best characteristics of traditional medicine with the profound impact of lifestyle behaviors on health. As our program grew, it became readily apparent to us that integrating Lifestyle Medicine into our internal medicine practice was the best way for us to continue to provide exceptional care. We feel that the concierge model is the only way to effectively do that.

Concierge medical practices come in various forms, including those that reject insurance plans all together, but this is not the case for Princeton Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown accept insurance for all covered medical services. In addition, their patients pay an annual fee of $1,200 for the Lifestyle Medicine Concierge program, which gives them access to an elevated level of care. Trained at the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine at Harvard Medical School, the doctors are at the vanguard of their field, having lectured about their practice development model at The Institute of Lifestyle Medicine Conference in 2015. They are also members of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and the American College of Physicians. They are among the first physicians to become board certified in Lifestyle Medicine, as well as maintaining their board certifications in internal medicine. Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown’s practice is unique in that it offers patients comprehensive conventional medical care combined with lifestyle counseling. Patients interested in a natural approach to disease prevention are provided in-depth, individualized coaching based on their needs. The doctors can assist with everything from quitting smoking to creating a manageable diet and exercise plan. According to the doctors, this is an evidence-based practice that has been shown to prevent, reverse, or slow down heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, and some cancers. The concierge model offers Princeton Lifestyle Medicine patients additional benefits including access to the doctors’ emails, cell phone numbers, and private phone line, extended patient office visits, a one-hour consultation, and same or next day appointments. As a result, patients see Drs. Kossow and Brown not only as accomplished medical doctors, but health advocates, mentors, and even friends. “Our practice structure allows us to spend more time educating our patients about what may be going on with them medically,” the doctors explain. “We are better able to work with them as partners in their care and advocate for them with their specialists or if they are in the hospital. We provide tremendous support and guidance to them and their caretakers or family. We are happy to have this enhanced communication with our patients. It allows us to make social visits when they are hospitalized at the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro so that we can stay in close touch while they are receiving care.” Concierge practices like Princeton Lifestyle Medicine focus the healthcare system on its most vital component: the patient-doctor relationship. The model emphasizes quality care instead of quick care, benefitting both parties. Dr. Brown and Kossow are now board certified as specialists in the practice of Lifestyle Medicine and are the only physicians in the Princeton area who are board certified in both Internal Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine. As leaders in both concierge and Lifestyle medicine, it comes as no surprise that Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown are at the forefront of this effort, bringing Princeton into the future of healthcare.

The Princeton Lifestyle Medicine Concierge Program is $1,200 per year. The fee can be paid monthly, quarterly, biannually, or annually, and credit cards are accepted as payment. All medical services are billed through the patient’s insurance company as usual. Princeton Lifestyle Medicine is located at 731 Alexander Road, Suite 200 in Princeton, New Jersey.
