STATEN ISLAND – A social media video provides a glimpse into a treatment room as Dr. Frank J. Mandarino, an award-winning chiropractor with offices in New York and New Jersey, conducts a Body Tempering® therapeutic session on a patient seeking relief from a sports-related pain.
“When I throw the ball, I get a pain in my shoulder,” said the patient, a recreational baseball player. The sensation, he explained, is “more like a huge muscle ache – not like a sharp, stabbing pain, but a very dull, throbbing pain.”
In response to the patient’s pain-relief needs, Dr. Mandarino said the goal of the session would be to “do the Body Tempering®, the target tampering, to the posterior back, the surrounding shoulder [and] a little bit into the ‘traps,’ and then we’ll do some ‘Graston’ [Technique] on the shoulder; and then, Dr. (Michael) Carducci (a Mandarino Chiropractic partner) is going to do some ‘Piezo’ [Piezowave extracorporeal shockwaves treatment].”
While skillfully placing a Body Tempering® device upon the affected area, Dr. Mandarino explained, “I’m applying some pressure right here … to break up these adhesions [that are] obviously pinching … so much of the shoulder, thoracic spine, lats. Everything’s involved with baseball pitching.”
Described as a tool used to accelerate sports activity performance and recovery by combating soft tissue restrictions, Body Tempering® caught Dr. Mandarino’s attention when he learned the technique was created by world record-setting powerlifter Donnie Thompson.
“I was already aware of Donnie Thompson’s reputation as a world-class competitor,” Dr. Mandarino said. “After researching Body Tempering®, I concluded it was highly effective if combined with optimal movement or training. Donnie Thompson’s Body Tempering® and strength-preparation techniques are used by coaches, trainers, and athletes in top athletic organizations, such as: Major League Baseball; the National Basketball Association (NBA); the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA); participants of the Olympic Games; the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), and numerous private training facilities.”
Inspired by the benefits Body Tempering® could provide to the many athletes who visit his practice, Dr. Mandarino studied its techniques, earned certification as a Body Tempering® practitioner, and purchased professionally crafted Body Tempering® devices to ensure optimal results.
