Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive approach to overall wellness and healing that focuses on correcting issues with your musculoskeletal system. When performed by a licensed chiropractor, it can alleviate and even eliminate common problems such as:
To treat your conditions and help reduce your pain, chiropractors use time-tested, hands-on techniques to adjust your spine, neck, back, and other joints throughout your body to restore proper function, mobility, and alignment. Once your body is in proper alignment, it functions optimally, leading to improved overall wellness and health.
Unlike some sports rehab clinics in The Garden State, chiropractors from NJ Sports Spine & Wellness work with you one-on-one to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific goals and needs relating to your pain and ability to live a normal life. Because our team takes a holistic approach to healthcare, we cover all aspects of your health and wellness when developing your chiropractic treatment plan. That way, we increase your chances of living a fulfilling life free of pain and worry about throwing your back out.
Seeing a chiropractor can quite literally change your life for the better. According to the American Chiropractic Association, in general, chiropractic therapy is a more effective solution for back pain than other treatments like addictive pain pills, surgeries, and yoga. When combined with services like physical therapy, occupational therapy, and acupuncture, chiropractic care may be the key you need to open the door to a pain-free life.Shedule An Appointment
Some of the many benefits of seeing a reliable, licensed chiropractor include the following:
Perhaps the most obvious reason to make an appointment with a chiropractor is for back pain relief. Some people only need to see a chiropractor when they have occasional back pain, such as when they wake up in the morning. Others, such as those who have been in serious car accidents, need regular chiropractic adjustments and therapies, which are often supplemented with techniques like physical therapy and acupuncture.
There are many causes of back pain that range from advanced conditions like having sciatica and herniated discs to everyday issues like poor posture and sleeping in a harmful position. Your chiropractor's job is to pinpoint the cause(s) of your back pain and build a customized plan to address your musculoskeletal conditions. Once that happens, pain relief follows shortly after.
At New Jersey Sports Spine & Wellness, we craft personalized chiropractic plans for every patient we treat, with the goal of avoiding harmful surgeries and addictive medicines.
If you've never experienced a headache in your life, you're exceedingly rare. Just about every American will suffer from a headache at some point or another. For some, headaches only happen occasionally and are not much more than an annoyance. For others, headaches evolve into crippling migraines that can affect quality of life, ability to work, and much more.
If you find yourself digging into a bottle of Aspirin or something stronger when you have a headache, it might be time to visit an NJSSW chiropractor.
Do you wake up in the morning feeling like you didn't sleep a wink the previous night? Do you have to take sleep aides like Ambien in order to drift off to dreamland? If you have chronic back pain, getting a full night's rest is easier said than done. From misaligned spines to improper sleeping posture, your chiropractor in Avon by the Sea can use manipulation therapy and other techniques to boost blood flow and align your vertebrae, so your body can heal itself and help you rest better.
One of the best things about seeing your chiropractor is that when your session is over, you often feel great. The pain relief feels phenomenal. When you're not in pain, you have a more positive outlook on life, and often enjoy better sleep, blood pressure, and even sexual relations. It makes sense, then, that chiropractic care has been shown to help reduce stress and anxiety, which promotes relaxation and improved mental health.
At NJ Sports Spine & Wellness, we work with a long list of athletes who suffer from sports injuries and other problems that can manifest from being active. For professional athletes, having a trustworthy chiropractor to care for them is needed for their careers. But you don't have to be a pro athlete to benefit from chiropractic care. Ordinary people that enjoy active lifestyles can reap tremendous rewards through chiropractic care, such as improved range of motion and relief from compressed discs.
Whether you enjoy impromptu games of tag football or simply want to play with your kids, seeing a chiropractor can help you be healthy and active without fighting back, neck, and joint pain. That's especially true when chiropractic therapy is used in conjunction with acupuncture, physical therapy, or occupational therapy.ies and addictive medicines.
Your NJ Sports Spine & Wellness chiropractor in Avon by the Sea may use a range of techniques to restore function and alignment in your body. Some of the most common techniques our chiropractors use include:
Life has a habit of being unexpected. Sure, some surprises only hurt your bank account, like last-minute renovations in your home. But severe incidents, like car accidents, can inflict physical injuries that cause you long-term pain. These problems, like neck and back injuries, affect many Americans daily. Even worse, many hardworking people turn to risky surgeries and addictive pain medications, only to find themselves deep in a hole that seems impossible to get out of.
If you suffer from serious range-of-motion issues or you're in chronic pain, it's important to know that you have treatment choices. You don't have to put your health at risk to relieve your pain. One of the most successful non-invasive treatments offered for pain is physical therapy. The main goal of physical therapy is to restore movement and function to patients affected by illness, injury, or disability.
Physical therapists work with patients of all ages and abilities, from children to elderly adults, to help them overcome physical limitations and improve their quality of life. At NJ Sports Spine & Wellness, our physical therapists help treat a wide range of conditions, from neck pain and spinal cord injuries to back pain and arthritis.
Once our PTs have made headway, they will often use our chiropractic therapy to provide the patient with more relief. Having the option of both chiropractic and physical therapy is often very effective, because your chiropractor in Avon by the Sea can address nerve irritation and joint dysfunction while your physical therapist helps retrain your musculoskeletal system, allowing your body to heal faster.
Some of the biggest benefits of using physical therapy along with chiropractic care include:
Occupational therapy, or OT, is to help patients of all ages and abilities engage in activities of daily living, or ADL. Often, that means helping patients reclaim the ability to continue working, going to school, accomplishing day-to-day tasks, or other activities common to daily living.
Occupational therapy can benefit individuals going through many conditions, such as traumatic brain injuries, strokes, spinal cord injuries, autism spectrum disorders, developmental delays, and chronic pain. The end goal of occupational therapy is to help patients achieve the maximum level of independence and participation in their daily lives. If pain, discomfort, weakness, fatigue, or fear prevent you from participating in activities you love, an OT from NJ Sports Spine & Wellness could become the MVP of your wellness journey.
To give our patients the most complete pain relief and recovery options, our doctors and practitioners will often lean on the expertise of both a physical therapist and a chiropractor in Avon by the Sea. By working together, your PT, OT, and chiropractor can provide you with a comprehensive approach to total-body functionality, from your spine and joints to your mind and range of motion.
Some of the most common benefits of using OT with chiropractic care include:
Acupuncture boosts your body's functions and helps improve its ability to heal through anatomic site stimulation - usually called acupuncture points or acupoints. To stimulate these points, acupuncturists at NJ Sports Spine & Wellness insert fine, sterile needles into your skin. Most patients don't feel any pain as needles are applied. Typically, needles are left in the skin up to 30 minutes. After your session, it's normal to feel incredibly relaxed.
While some practitioners still adhere to traditional philosophies, modern acupuncturists take an integrative approach to the therapy. Today, professional acupuncturists use these techniques to stimulate your body's natural healing and pain-fighting processes. When coupled with personalized care from a chiropractor in Avon by the Sea as well as physical or occupational therapy, you can find real relief from the physical and emotional roadblocks holding you back. Some of the most reported benefits of acupuncture treatment include:
During an acupuncture session, you may feel a slight sensation of warmth or tingling at the needle's site of insertion. Generally speaking, acupuncture is painless and perfectly safe for you to consider. In fact, many practitioners and doctors recommend combining acupuncture with other treatment options like chiropractic adjustments.
Though acupuncture and chiropractic therapies come from different origins, both include non-invasive, holistic, and gentle approaches that don't require drugs to work. They also both facilitate total-body healing by addressing the underlying causes of your symptoms - not just the symptoms themselves.
Because acupuncture is known to release endorphins and improve blood flow, having a session prior to a chiropractic adjustment can be very beneficial. That's because, after acupuncture, your muscles are less stiff, more relaxed, and easier to adjust effectively. Over time, as you combine acupuncture and chiropractic therapy, you'll benefit from less inflammation and less pain as you heal from injuries or musculoskeletal conditions. That same truth applies to patients who undergo serious chiropractic adjustments.
At NJ Sports Spine & Wellness, our staff consists of licensed and highly-trained professionals, including specialists focusing on:
Every member of our team believes that the path to wellness and a pain-free life begins with customized treatment plans that cater to your needs and body. Unlike some chiropractors in Avon by the Sea, we do not treat on-the-surface symptoms with one-size-fits-all therapies. We do not rely on powerful pain medications to mask your pain or invasive surgeries that require weeks of recovery. Instead, we address the root causes of your pain so that we can help you live the happy, healthy life you're craving.
To achieve that goal, we'll conduct an in-depth evaluation to learn about your medical history. We'll also perform diagnostic tests and speak with you one-on-one to get a better sense of your needs. From there, we'll recommend the therapies that can give you a new lease on life and be there for every milestone you hit.
If you're fed up of living with the limits of pain and lack of mobility, we're here to help you break free. Contact our office today to get started.

Islands & Beaches
The spots worth planning a day, a weekend, or a whole week around, all summer long.
Each summer, when city folk are sweltering amid New York's concrete and glass, we turn our gaze south toward the Jersey Shore, which has some of the best beaches in the region. Since many beloved shore attractions were closed last year due to the pandemic, travelers are more eager than ever to see their favorite exits fly into view on the Garden State Parkway. It's summer, finally, and we're back at the beach, revisiting our favorite mini-golf courses, guzzling milkshakes at our boardwalks of choice, and settling in for an epic tan. These are the 17 best beaches in New Jersey—the spots worth planning a trip "down the shore" for.

Are you part of the reason New Jersey still has costly beach badges? You just might very well be, depending on your actions.
Summer at the Jersey Shore means fun and good times at the beaches. But it also means we have to shell out more money just to access that sand that's otherwise free from Labor Day to Memorial Day, with a few exceptions here and there.
Yes, everyone should head to the beach in New Jersey at least once during the summer. There's just something about the Shore region that draws millions of people to it every year.
It's one of the reasons why I love living at the Shore. Being born and raised by the beach allows you to appreciate the summer season that much more when it arrives.
Now are there things I don't like about the summer season here? Sure there are. The sheer volume of traffic that comes with this time of year is certainly up there on the list.
Traffic aside, the cost of just having a good time is also something many locals might not be fond of. And I'm not talking about the rides or food, either.
The cost to park is one of those insane expenses. Not all, but many locations along the coast charge an absolutely ridiculous amount just so you can park your car.
But perhaps the most annoying expense we have to pay is for us to have access to the beach. We're the only state in the country that charges to have access to the vast majority of our public beaches.
Beach badges have been around for a long time now. And during the summer months, towns up and down the Jersey Shore proudly bring this ridiculous tradition back just so we can set foot on the sand.
Now yes, a bunch of towns probably like the added revenue beach badges bring to a community. Some might claim it's necessary to maintain the beach and keep it clean.
But if it's so necessary to do that, then how come all other coastal states can maintain their beaches without the need of charging for access? What's more, how do they do a better job of it when that extra funding isn't available?
Well, that might be where you come in. You might very well be the excuse some towns might target as the reason we need beach badges in the first place.
Now before we go any further, let me reiterate that this is highly dependent upon your actions. If you're guilty of this, you'll know right away.
It's no surprise that a lot of our beaches throughout the summer season tend to have a lot more litter on them than at any other time of the year.
Of course, the volume of people also plays a role. We have a lot more visitors at the shore during the summer than we do at any other time of the year.
The bigger problem we have this time of year is the amount of trash people leave behind on the beach when they wrap up their day. And if you're one of those people, then you are part of the reason why we can't get rid of beach badges.
Not everyone, but enough of you are absolute pigs that can't clean up your own trash and carry it to a garbage can. Every year it happens, and every year we rely on the cleaning crews our beach badges help pay for to clean up the litter we ultimately should be responsible for.
Is it because we're on vacation and just don't care? Why do some have to treat our beaches like their own personal trash bin?
And if this is you, then why? Why do you do it? Is it because we know we have cleaning crews those beach badges pay for? Or are you just that inconsiderate and don't really care in the first place?
More likely than not this is thanks to those who visit the region and not locals directly. But then again, anyone could be guilty of this problem that creates an issue for towns that must maintain their beaches.
Unfortunately, it probably won't stop, and that's a big part of the reason why costly beach badges aren't going anywhere. As long as they have you, the careless slob, then we can all rest assured they'll always be an excuse to keep beach badges in place so we can afford to clean up after you.
And in case you're wondering, here's how expensive it'll be to get that badge up and down the Jersey Shore this year to help pay to keep our beaches clean. Note that some locations have gone up when compared to a year ago.
Again, if you clean up after yourself, then none of the blame is on you. Hopefully, those who are guilty of leaving their trash behind will eventually get the hint that they're part of the very reason we need costly beach badges in the first place.
It's simple. Let's all clean up after ourselves so we can at least remove this as one of the reasons why we need those badges.
New Jersey may never scrap the concept of beach badges (after all, it is New Jersey), but we could at least do our part to help keep the cost of badges down and our beaches clean.

MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ — County officials recently announced the debut of the Beach Public Safety Dashboard, a program that allows residents to monitor beach conditions in real-time, up to the minute. According to officials, Monmouth County is the first county in the country to use the Beach Public Safety Dashboard.
Eighteen beaches across the county are monitored on the dashboard including Belmar, Asbury Park, Manasquan, Avon-by-the-Sea, and Bradley Beach. According to the county, the program was developed with the help of Watchtower Solutions, a California-based company that “provides a modern digital command center for public safety agencies.”
“Monmouth County worked collaboratively with Watchtower Solutions to become the first county in the United States to unveil the Beach Public Safety Dashboard and we are excited to share it with our residents and visitors,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Department of Tourism. “The introduction of the SafeBeachDay.com Dashboard, in collaboration with SafeBeachDay.com and Watchtower Digital Command Center, is sure to provide our County’s beach visitors a better experience for their trips to Monmouth County.”

The program allows residents to view real-time updates on beach conditions, including wave height, tide data, water temperature, and more. It also calculates the data and gives hazard levels. For example in Belmar, as of press time, the Beach Public Safety Dashboard shows a wave height of one foot, a water temperature of 50 degrees, wind speeds of nine miles per hour, a U.V. index of six, and more.
The program also allows users to view conditions and directions specific to one beach entrance and features announcements from the beaches’ lifeguards. According to county officials, the program will soon feature updates on parking capacity and availability.
