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 Carteret 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 Carteret 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 Carteret 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 Carteret. 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 Carteret 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 Carteret, 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.

Crow Holdings Development recently celebrated the grand opening of a massive distribution center in Carteret.
Crow Holdings at Carteret, a three-building, 1.2 million-square-foot property at 300, 400 and 500 Salt Meadow Road, is ready for occupancy, featuring pre-built offices as well as a combined 299 trailer parking spots, 174 dock doors with fully equipped loading docks, and six drive-in ramps.
The location is less than half a mile off Exit 12 on the New Jersey Turnpike.
"It was great," Clark Machemer, senior managing director with Crow Holdings Development, said of the grand opening. "Really, with any opening like that, it’s looking back at the past two years, development in New Jersey is not an easy process, so, it really takes some cooperation of both the private sector here at Crow Holdings, our lender, our equity, and most importantly, Carteret, to move a project forward. So, it really just was a culmination of dedication of hard work of both people on our team and also on the municipal side."
Third-party logistics provider Weida Freight System will become the first tenant at the campus via a 188,000-square-foot, long-term transaction at 400 Salt Meadow Road.
"They’re moving product in already, and we’re just finishing up building out some of their office space for them to occupy," Machemer said.
Although Machemer said there were no other tenants at this point, "there’s been steady interest in the project as we’ve completed the project. Obviously, a lot of improvements that we had to make, not only to the buildings, but the access into the site. So now that that’s been completed, the vision we had is being realized and companies and brokers are recognizing there are benefits of being located so closely to Exit 12 on the Turnpike. Interest has picked up."
Crow Holdings Development is in the process of leasing the buildings, Machemer said, and the lease rates would be approximate to where Weida was, $19-$20 a square foot.
Machemer said he was "optimistic in the next three to four months, we’ll be able to announce a few more deals."
Crow Holdings at Carteret is a good fit for the borough, Machemer said.
"Mayor Dan Reiman recognizes the benefits of a project like Crow Holdings at Carteret. Not only does it bring tax ratables for the town, you know, fairly significant through the PILOT program … there are $2 million a year, approaching $3 million a year, in PILOT payments to the township."
“We are proud to add Crow Holdings Development’s newest state-of-the-art industrial park to the Borough’s ever-expanding portfolio of successful redevelopment projects and welcome the national and international business tenants that will soon call Carteret home,” said Reiman in a news release. “My administration and the Borough of Carteret were excited to work with (Crow Holdings Development) throughout this brownfield redevelopment and look forward to many years of successful partnership.”
Crow Holdings Development is the development platform of Crow Holdings, a privately owned real estate investment and development firm with 75 years of history, $30 billion of assets under management, and an established platform with a vision for continued success.

CARTERET, New Jersey (WABC) -- There was a major settlement on Tuesday involving a chemical contamination in New Jersey.
About one thousand property owners in Carteret could get a piece of a $42 million settlement in a class action lawsuit against metal companies after investigations uncovered levels of toxins higher than state safety levels.
"We had samples taken and then found lead and arsenic from the soil," said Cerys Riaz.
It happened a few years ago when the United States Metals Refining Company began clean-up after a lawsuit claimed it left a large area of Carteret polluted with toxins.
"They had to dig down 18 inches," said Sharon Yacout-Comba.
This settlement, which could amount to up to about $17,500 per residential property comes as the suit claims the company's cleanup was inadequate and that toxins continue to cause damage to the properties. U.S. Metals closed down in 1986. Warehouses are now located on the huge lot.
The city says 1,205 residential properties are in the contamination zone. Many homeowners have been keeping up with the allegations and the possibility of this settlement.
Anyone who owns or owned one of the properties between January 30, 2017, and March 28, 2023, is eligible. CLICK HERE to find out more.
It is also best to get legal advice on the options - accepting the settlement takes away any rights you may have of suing the company separately, and it releases U.S. Metals from any wrongdoing, which it continues to claim.
A final approval hearing on the $42 million settlement is set for July 26 held over a Zoom meeting in Carteret.

CARTERET, NJ — The borough is using $1.4 million from two NJ Department of Transportation grants to repave several roads, including North Whittier & Tennyson streets, and it plans to install new sidewalks, curbs and gutters, Mayor Daniel J. Reiman said.
Expected to continue through November, the projects will reconstruct or repaving various streets, including North Whittier Street, Monroe Avenue, and portions of Jackson Avenue, and Tennyson, Blanchard, Linden and Irving streets. Work includes new concrete curbing, gutter replacements, drainage and other improvements.
“We’re so grateful to (state) Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, and Gov. Phil Murphy for helping us to greatly improve these roads in our flourishing neighborhoods,” Reiman said. “They’ll make the streets more efficient, attractive and, most importantly, safer.”

The road projects will include 31,345-square-yards of milling, 3,815 tons of hot mix asphalt, 7,820 linear feet of curb, and 1,780 square yards of concrete sidewalks, aprons, and associated work and restoration.
South River-based S. Brothers is working on the North Whittier Street project at a cost of $774,582; and KM Construction Corp. of Irvington, is doing the Tennyson Street portion, which costs $699,335, according to borough officials.
Carteret received two state DOT grants that total $1,414,948 to kickstart the work. The Tennyson Street project was paid for in full by the grant and the borough’s capital improvement fund will pay a small portion of the North Whittier project, Reiman said.
The mayor will make updates about the road work available at Carteret.net, or at @MyCarteret on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Although if you were paying attention, Patch previously reported back in January the tiki bar would be coming.
And now on Aug. 7, Carteret announced plans to open a waterfront dining pavilion and bar on its stretch of the Arthur Kill as well, Mayor Dan Reiman announced Monday.
What the state approved to be built is a pavilion that can serve as covered eating space. The pavilion will be located on a pier over the river in Carteret's Waterfront Park.
The pavilion will come with a 48-foot cooking trailer that will cook and sell food on site. In the future, Carteret also seeks a vendor to operate the food truck.
The pavilion will also have a liquor license.
The NJ Department of Environmental Protection authorized construction of the 70-by-46-foot, 3,220-square foot pavilion. Bids will be accepted starting Aug. 11.
This will be a seasonal pavilion open from spring through fall; it will not be open in the winter.
Carteret's Waterfront Park has a boat marina, a mini-golf course, a putting green, a volleyball court, an exercise trail and a bocce court. Carteret hopes to add NYC ferry service from its Waterfront Park.
Mayor Reiman has also floated elaborate plans to open a hotel and even a movie studio at its waterfront, but both of those ideas are unfunded.
“We want to thank NJDEP and Commissioner Shawn LaTourette for the approval to move forward with our waterfront restaurant pavilion,” Reiman said Aug. 7. “Great things continue to happen for our wonderful waterfront ... The approval of this restaurant pavilion follows the receipt of our first ferry boat, the Theodore Roosevelt, which soon will offer recreational opportunities as well as ferry service."

CARTERET, NJ — Much has been reported about Carteret Mayor Dan Reiman's ambitions to build a ferry terminal and launch daily ferry service to New York City.
Under the Reiman administration, Carteret is also building a five-mile walking path that will run along its Arthur Kill waterfront, to be called the "Riverwalk."
The middle portion of the walkway is located at Waterfront Park, and has been open for a while now. It has a garden, bocci court, volleyball court, fitness stations and even a putting green.
This spring, the town just completed the southern portion, which will open soon. In April, construction started on the northern stretch of the walkway, which will run up to Noes Creek.
"Working with the state, we’ve completed about a mile and a half of boardwalk now, and we’re adding another mile going north," said Reiman Monday. "Once it’s completed, we’ll have two and a half miles.”
If all goes according to plan, the Carteret Riverwalk will stretch for five miles total, from the abandoned Conrail train line, go past the Waterfront Park and fishing pier and end at Noes Creek. A portion of the walkway will extend out over the Arthur Kill for a scenic overlook.
“We would create this five-mile loop,” Mayor Dan Reiman said this week. “In essence, we would create this five-mile Rails to Trails to boardwalk concept.”
Carteret has plans to acquire the abandoned Conrail line that runs parallel to Peter J. Sica Industrial Highway and to the waterfront.
The goal is to transform Carteret's previously industrial waterfront area into a public space for recreation, business and play.
“The new walkway will increase the public's access to the Arthur Kill and offer a passive recreational resource for all ages," said Reiman.
DuPont Corporation donated a chunk of remediated land north of Waterfront Park; that is where Reiman plans to one day build the ferry terminal. The mayor hopes that after ferry service is launched, a hotel and even a movie studio will follow along the waterfront. So far, no company has signed on to either.
