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 Colts Neck 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 Colts Neck 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 Colts Neck 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 Colts Neck. 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 Colts Neck 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 Colts Neck, 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.

COLTS NECK, NJ — The Colts Kids First team - Jason Orrico, Kevin T. Walsh, Vincent Rugnetta and Angelique Volpe - swept the Colts Neck Board of Education election Tuesday, in unofficial results.
Board President Heather Tormey, the only incumbent seeking re-election, was not voted back into office. The other members of her Collaboration, Communication, Consideration team were also not successful in their bids for first terms on the board.
Other board members still completing terms, who are not affiliated with Colts Kids First, are Alison DeNoia, Brenna Dillon and Amy Dimes.
That means that in January, the nine-member board will have six self-avowed "socially and fiscally conservative" members, according to board member John Camera.
Camera was elected last year on the slate, along with Jessica Ramirez and another candidate who could not be seated because he did not live in town at the time of his candidate filing. That unexpired term was won Tuesday by another member of the Colts Kids First Team.
The election results will not be final and certified until all mail-in and provisional ballots are counted, Camera noted. But he said he is confident the team will be seated in January.
Tormey and her team congratulated the winners:
"Our team extends a sincere congratulations to our Colts Kids First opponents on a well fought win. This was not an easy election for our community; all of our passionate efforts were extremely forceful as they were centered around our children and community," she said in a statement.
She also thanked the team's supporters and the Colts Neck Township Education Association - "the true heroes" who impact students' futures.
Camera has been a leader of the current Colts Kids First members on the board, including pushing for amendments to Policy 5756, which provides guidance regarding transgender students, such as communication with parents. Schools were not required to notify parents if students came out as transgender, particularly if there was concern of abuse by parents because of the "outing."
Many districts found they could respond on a case-by-case basis to such a scenario and protect a student, yet keep parents in the loop.
However, some districts in the state are repealing or amending the policy. Colts Neck tabled action on amendments to require notification this summer, a move Camera opposed.
The board, led by Tormey, did not want to be another defendant in an expensive discrimination lawsuit by the state Attorney General, who is suing districts such as Marlboro and Manalapan-Englishtown and Middletown that did amend the policy.
In the interim, the state acknowledged the policy is not mandatory and Colts Neck was able to freely rescind it, with no blowback from the state - which the board did.
But the cultural issues raised did evoke lots of reaction - often angry and emotional - and put Colts Neck and other school boards in the spotlight.
Here is the unofficial vote tally for all the candidates. (Note: Candidates Walsh and Volpe, board members-elect, are husband and wife.):
Colts Neck Board of Education (Full term; vote for three)
Colts Neck Board of Education (Two-year unexpired term; vote for one)
There was no contest for the Freehold Regional High School District full term, with candidate Carl Accettola representing Colts Neck.

Senior running back Chris Scully knew during the morning of Colts Neck’s 57-20 victory over Long Branch in Colts Neck that he was going to leave the field as the program’s all-time leading rusher.
Scully entered the contest 132 yards from breaking the all-time rushing record held by 2014 graduate Anthony Gargiulo. The senior tailback cemented his name into the Colts Neck record books by running for 185 yards and four touchdowns to become the new all-time leading rusher in school history now with 3,490 yards.
“It feels amazing,” Scully said about becoming Colts Neck’s all-time leading rusher. “I knew I had to have a big game to help us win and that meant breaking the record. There’s no better feeling. I’m really happy.”
Scully broke Gargiulo’s record in style on the first play of the fourth quarter with a 10-yard touchdown run. He would the finishing touches on his special day later on in the quarter with a 35-yard touchdown run.
Scully’s record-breaking day for Colts Neck also included a 77-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to give him 21 total touchdowns on the season.
Becoming the school’s all-time leading rusher wouldn’t be possible without his coaches and teammates, Scully said.
“Everybody up front did a great job and my fullback (Jack Lefkowitz) has been making key blocks for me all season,” Scully said. “We’re a veteran group and we’ve putting it all together this season.”
Scully added that this Colts Neck team is a “special group” that can make a lot of noise in the postseason.
“We have a great group of guys. We’re rolling into the postseason and hopefully, we can make a great run in the playoffs,” Scully said.
Senior quarterback Dom Beninato threw two touchdown passes in the Colts Neck victory. One was a 29-yard touchdown pass to Tesio Carabello and the other was a three-yard toss to John Sherrod. Senior running back Devin Donnelly also had a touchdown run in the victory for the Cougars.
