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 Elberon 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 Elberon 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 Elberon 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 Elberon. 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 Elberon 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 Elberon, 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.

The property owner of the only private immigration detention center in New Jersey filed a lawsuit Monday against the operator of the facility alleging the company did not follow federal guidelines and requirements to stop the spread of COVID-19, leading 51 people in custody to test positive for the virus.
Portview Properties, which filed the 22-page lawsuit in Superior Court in Union County, wants a judge to terminate the lease agreement for breach of contract and order the building be vacated by CoreCivic Inc., the operators of the Elizabeth Detention Center. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has an agreement with CoreCivic to hold asylum seekers and other undocumented people in the federal agency's custody at the facility while they await their immigration cases to be resolved.
"After repeated attempts to have CoreCivic vacate the property and terminate the lease, our client has exhausted her other options and needed to take legal action,'' said A. Ross Pearlson, of Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi, the attorney representing the company in the lawsuit.
Ryan Gustin, a spokesman for CoreCivic, said the company does not comment on pending litigation but said it takes very seriously its responsibility to take care of people in its custody, including those at the Elizabeth Detention Center.
"The safety and well-being of these individuals and our staff is our top priority,'' he said in an email, which also referred to the company's statement on COVID-19 prevention.
In the lawsuit, Portview Properties, a part of Elberon Development, alleges that CoreCivic did not follow the Centers for Disease Control guidelines and ICE requirements to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The company alleges that CoreCivic failed to meet the basic safety, health care, sanitation and hygiene needs of all those detained. Furthermore, the lawsuit states, the company does not permit individuals to maintain social distancing, and that detainees sleep in dorms with 40 beds or cots in one room, clustered closely together, and must share a restroom.
"Defendant’s failure to implement these required measures represents not only a threat to the health, safety, and wellbeing of those individuals detained within the EDC, but also, a breach of the ICE Contract and, therefore, its lease agreement with Plaintiff,'' the lawsuit states. "The physical threat to these individuals, which has been exacerbated by Defendant’s inaction, has become even more dire in light of the spread of new variants of the virus causing COVID-19."
Portview Properties alleges in the lawsuit that between April 18 and April 29, an additional 12 detainees held at the facility tested positive for COVID-19.
The building in Elizabeth has housed immigration detainees since 1993. But last year, Elberon indicated that it planned to terminate the lease with CoreCivic. The company had been under pressure from critics of then-President Donald Trump's immigration policies who had organized several protests outside the facility.
"As supporters of many important educational, social service, and religious organizations in the community, we want our values mirrored in our work,'' a statement sent to advocates from Elberon stated. "We believe that each business has the right to determine its own path forward. We now have shared ours."
CoreCivic's current lease agreement is due to expire on June 30, 2022, according to the suit. CoreCivic had sent a written notice to Portview indicating it wanted to extend the lease until June 30, 2027, the suit states.
The lawsuit adds to the uncertainty of ICE detention in New Jersey, where for years immigrants and their supporters have been demanding the agreements be terminated, accusing officials of profiting from immigration detention that has separated families. Besides the center in Elizabeth, the counties of Essex, Hudson and Bergen have agreements with ICE to hold immigrant detainees at their jails.
But last week, Essex County officials announced they will end their controversial, 13-year long practice of housing federal immigration detainees at its jail in Newark, opting instead to make room for more inmates from Union County.
Hours later, Anthony Vainieri, chairman of the Hudson County Board of County Commissioners, said he too had changed his stance on keeping the ICE agreement going in his county, an agreement which had been renewed for 10 years in November. He said that he had asked County Executive Tom DeGise to not take any more detainees from ICE.
In Bergen County, a spokesman for Sheriff Anthony Cureton said that there have been no discussions regarding the ICE contract, but that the Sheriff's Office was presently not accepting more ICE detainees. The spokeswoman did not say when the jail stopped taking the federal detainees and whether the change was permanent.
During the Trump administration and prior to the pandemic, each of the facilities in New Jersey held several hundred detainees for the New York and Newark field offices of ICE. But ICE detentions have fallen amid the coronavirus outbreak, and nationwide there are around 15,800 people in custody.
Last week, the Hudson County jail held 48 ICE detainees while Bergen County had 97, Essex had 164, and Elizabeth had 150.

The construction of the Long Branch School District's newest school should begin this August.
The will be the district's first school construction project since the new Long Branch High School was built in 2007.
In August 2009, education officials demolished the old Elberon Elementary School to make way for the Catrambone School, which will be larger and built on the same site. The Elberon Elementary School was located at 240 Park Ave. and was built in 1969.
The school was selected for advancement as part of the 2011 Capital Project Portfolio, and the 109,000 square-foot, partial two-story building will be constructed on a 9.7 acre site and will accommodate approximately 800 students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grades.
Terminal Construction Corp. of Wood Ridge, was the lowest responsible bidder for the project and awarded a $27.5 million general construction contract for the construction of the new school, according to Long Branch School District Facility Manager Ann Degnan.
"We are thrilled, because we have been working so hard on this for such a long time," Degnan said.
The School Development Authority (SDA) recently issued a notice to proceed with the project to Terminal Construction Corp, a development that SDA CEO Marc Larkins said will launch a new way of handling school construction projects.
“The award of this contract brings the Long Branch community one step closer toward their new school,” Larkins said in a release. “With our commitment to maintaining the project schedule and budget, the Catrambone project is advancing through a new way of approaching school construction projects in New Jersey."
The initial phase of this award will begin with a required constructibility review.
Degnan said the purpose of the constructibility review is to "eliminate unforeseen change orders.
"In the past, in any construction, once the project is started and an issue is found, they would discuss it among the group and come up with a change order," Degnan said. "Now they will take six to eight weeks to do the review and negotiate one change order."
Degnan said a change order may not be necessary, but that there is "always going to be something that comes up," during construction projects.
Larkins said the constructibility review will help keep construction costs lower for the project.
"Performing a comprehensive Constructibility Review prior to the start of construction will help avoid the type of cost overruns and project delays that plagued the school construction program in the past," Larkins said. "We look forward to celebrating future milestones with the Long Branch community.”
Once the review process is completed and the SDA agrees with its results, Terminal Construction Corp. will be issued a separate notice-to-proceed to begin construction activities including preparing the site for construction, removal of unsuitable material, remediating areas of concern and importing certified clean fill to be compacted and graded, providing footing and foundations, building shell, and completion of the building in accordance with the bid documents, according to the SDA.
Degnan said construction should be completed within two years, and should help ease overcrowding concerns at the district's elementary schools.
"We are over capacity at all of our elementary schools," Degnan said.
Since 2007, the district’s enrollment has increased by about 13 percent, from 4,785 to 5,441. As a result, space like the teachers’ lounges at Gregory Elementary School and Amerigo A. Anastasia School has been converted to classrooms.
When the original Elberon School was demolished, many students were relocated to the Gregory and Anastasia schools, causing the overcrowding concerns.

LONG BRANCH - Two years ago, the city and its partner NJ Transit spoke publicly about a dramatic idea to build a pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks as part of a larger plan to upgrade the aging train station, one of the busiest on the North Jersey Coast Line.
On Friday, Rep. Frank Pallone Jr., D-N.J., announced that the funding needed for the project, $12.3 million in total, has been secured through the federal Department of Transportation's Reconnecting Communities Pilot Program established in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
Only it won't be a bridge. It will be a tunnel.
The tunnel will connect the east and west sides of the city that are currently bisected by a sound barrier wall that was erected during a 1988 upgrade to the station. The funds will also cover the reconstruction of the commuter parking lot for multimodal public transportation, ride share and taxi service, construction of a heated pedestrian overhang for bus service and landscape improvements.
Not 'just a place to catch the train':Long Branch transit village gets reshaped
“This announcement is wonderful news for the city of Long Branch," said Mayor John Pallone, brother of the congressman. "The pedestrian tunnel will ensure riders no longer have to cross the train tracks to access the platforms and residents can easily access businesses on each side of the station. I’m grateful to the federal and state agencies that worked to make this project possible."
The neighborhood has seen a recent burst of streetscape improvements and new development stemming from the creation of the Transit Village District in 2013. It received the state Department of Transportation's official designation as a transit village in 2016.
$34M for new sand:Long Branch's Elberon section getting beach replenishment soon
The city's vision is to bring in more housing and businesses while creating bicycle routes, pedestrian activity and easy access to goods and services that are all centered around mass transit. The transit village designation allows the city and NJ Transit to apply for DOT grant money, such as the funding it received for the Third Avenue road improvements and now the pedestrian tunnel.
Originally built in 1875, Long Branch Station has the fifth-highest ridership of the 20 stations that make up the North Jersey Coast Line, with over 1,000 average weekday boardings according to 2019 data.
