NMR Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation Opens Franklin Practice

Drs. Jeremy Cohen, Vince Sferra and Arun Kandra cut the ribbon May 18 at the new NMR office on Campus Drive.


NMR Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation, a medical practice dedicated to alleviating pain with non-invasive methods, held the grand opening of its office at 399 Campus Drive on May 18.

Founded by Drs. Vince Sferra, Arun Kandra and Jeremy Cohen, the practice’s philosophy “is based on utilizing non-narcotic options and creating an awareness that there are options besides narcotics for acute or chronic pain,” Kandra said.

Services offered include physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, biofeedback and medical pain management.

“We pretty much focus on being a one-stop destination for all pain issues, whether they’re sports injuries, post-operative or pre-operative pain management, any kind of musculoskeletal options,” Kandra said.

The practice features new technologies such as stem-cell treatments for certain ailments.

“It’s used for many degenerative conditions, injuries from sports, osteoarthritis,” Kandra said. “Knee, hip, spine problems. The idea behind that is you’re using your body’s own healing capabilities and helping the body mount a healing response to the chronic injury that’s happening.”

“There are very few places in the state that are doing that now,” he said.

Sferra said there are 8 to 10 providers affiliated with the practice.

“We coupled together for another very important reason, and that is if we can dampen the pain all in one place, with the doctors communicating with each other directly, and rehabilitate the area as well, we’re not only reducing their pain, but they’re becoming stronger and more stable” and learning how to maintain that, Sferra said. “It helps a lot with prevention, too.”

“Were teaching people through their lifestyle, through their nutrition, how to dampen inflammation, how to restore healing capabilities better,” he said. “Stem cell is a natural approach, even though there’s some intervention there, you’re using the person’s own stem cells to regenerate whether it’s knee or disc material.”

Sferra said he and Kandra have another, smaller office in Branchburg. He said they decided to open another facility to be able to offer scattered services in one location.

He said they picked Franklin because of its corporate population, for whom they have done many health fairs.

Hours right now are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. The doctors said that they would soon be open full days Mondays through Thursdays, and then part of the day on Fridays.
