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 Highlands 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 Highlands 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 Highlands 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 Highlands. 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 Highlands 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 Highlands, 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.

ALLENDALE − Landon De Prima and Ramapo scored every time they got the ball in the second half, except when it was time to take a knee.
De Prima threw four touchdown passes and the Green Raiders scored all their points in the second half of an emotional 34-33 victory over Northern Highlands on Friday night in a showdown of public state powers.
The senior quarterback threw two TD passes to junior Charlie Wingfield, including a 4-yarder with 5:36 left in the game to put Ramapo ahead by that one pivotal point against a team it lost to the last three meetings.
“We were really impressive, and I’m really proud of how composed and poised we were going into that second half,” De Prima said.
Ramapo scored five consecutive TDs to erase a 21-0 halftime deficit in a Super Football Conference battle played in on-again, off-again rain.
De Prima threw third-quarter TD passes of 7 yards to Wingfield and 8 yards to senior Nehemiah Burleson, and senior James Magerko's 10-yard scoring run tied it at 21 at 2:43 of the third.
“It’s just a testament to our kids and their mindset,” said Ramapo coach Mike DeFazio, whose team got a key block by senior Zach Schnorrbusch on a third-quarter extra-point attempt. “They let go of the first half, they do a great job of going play to play, and that’s how we took it.”
Ramapo (5-0) will likely move ahead of Northern Highlands (4-2) in the Statewide Public Top 20 rankings. The Green Raiders came into the game ranked No. 18, while the Highlanders entered at No. 10.
Ramapo had suffered excruciating losses in its last three battles with Northern Highlands, twice losing in the playoffs, including last year’s dramatic 49-42 overtime loss.
“The biggest thing is that it’s two phenomenal football teams that are 15 minutes apart from each other, and we play each other every year,” DeFazio said. “They’re always great games, it’s just bound to be intense, and you’ve got great coaches on both sides.”
Wingfield’s 4-yard TD catch with 5:36 left in the fourth quarter came on a second-and-goal. He had to tip De Prima’s pass in the air near the back of the end zone to keep it alive and catch it.
The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder, also a member of last season’s NJSIAA Group 3 championship basketball team, tipped it to himself so he could grab it with both hands.
“I knew it was high, and I knew I couldn’t really catch it in one grab, so I just tried to keep it near me, just get it off the tip,” Wingfield said.
Wingfield, also the kicker, converted all four of his extra points to help build the 34-33 lead. The Green Raiders went for a 2-point conversion and potential three-point lead after Wingfield’s go-ahead TD, but the pass was intercepted in the end zone.
Ramapo had 414 total yards, with 328 coming after intermission, and the offense was aided by an onside kick recovery after its first TD.
De Prima went 25-for-34 for 290 yards, four TDs and no interceptions. In the second half, he went 20-for-25 for 238 yards and four scores, with his 22-yard TD pass to senior Brandon Del Valle providing a 28-27 lead with 10:47 left in the game.
Northern Highlands had 375 yards, with 241 coming in the first half. Junior quarterback Nate Johnson went 12-for-20 for 200 yards, three first-half TDs and one interception against a defense that had posted three consecutive shutouts. In the second half, he ran for TD runs of 5 and 6 yards, the latter providing a 33-28 lead with 7:32 remaining.
“We were able to leave the past behind us going into the second half,” De Prima said. “In the first half, we were caught up in some emotions, and that really showed in our players and our offense and letting up big plays. The way that we adapted at halftime, and came out, we were able to score every time we got the ball, and we were able to stop them way more than we did in the first half.”

ALLENDALE, New Jersey (WABC) -- Twins make up about 3% of the U.S. population, but for one high school graduating class in Bergen County, New Jersey, the rate of seeing double is more than doubled!
Justin and Roman, Dan and Nico, John and Juliana, Ryan and Robert, Tommy and Isabelle, Andre and Gabe, Kyle and Anthony, and Tommy and Sarah are eight of 11 sets of fraternal twins that all started at Northern Highlands Regional High School together.
"My teacher said there are a lot of twins in my grade, why don't we do a spreadsheet on them, so I had to nag everybody," Northern Highlands High School senior Juliana Lavinio said.
The pairs of twins make up about 6.5% of their graduating class of 340 students.
"I think It's neat, I think that's the best way to put it. Oh cool, fun fact," senior Kyle Gentile said.
"We all came from different towns so we didn't realize when we were younger that there were three sets in Allendale and a lot more in other towns," senior Sarah Cornacchia said.
Each set has gone to school together all their lives. Most of them are going in different directions for college, but are they sad about it?
"Absolutely not. He's going to Fairfield, I'm going to Miami," seniors Dan and Nico Pantello said.
"We shared a room for a long time. It was horrible," Anthony Gentile said.
"I think we are very different people even though we're still best friends, we'll be ok, we're only four hours away from each other, so we can take a train," seniors Isabelle and Tommy Padilla said.
Justin and Roman Dario are the only ones headed off together.
"The University of Florida it's big enough to where we can have our own separate lives, but now that we have different roommates we're going to branch out and meet other people," Justin and Roman Dario said.
Andre and Gabe Johnson said they will miss each other's helping hand.
"Unfortunately, I won't have him to help me with homework or any other tasks that usually goes to him, but it's all good," Andre and Gabe Johnson said.
Ryan and Robert said they are going to different schools but will have the same major.
"We're going to be in the pre-dental track, so we'll see where that takes us, hopefully we'll run a practice one day together," Ryan and Robert said.
Principal Joe Occhino says they are all great kids.
"They're outstanding students, they're confident, they help each other, highly academic," Occhino said.
But the class missed the twins graduating together record at Northern Highlands by five. The class of 2021 had 16 sets of twins.
"Pretty amazing actually," Occhino said.
The class will graduate on Thursday evening.

A controversial natural gas pipeline project in the state's northern Highlands is in limbo after court officials nullified a key exemption to the region's strict development regulations.
New Jersey Superior Court Appellate Division judges, in an opinion issued Thursday, invalidated an exemption to Highlands Preservation Area regulations granted to the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company for its East 300 Upgrade Project. New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection officials have previously issued the exemption on the grounds that the proposed $108 million compressor station in the Highlands Preservation Area in West Milford was a "routine upgrade" to the utility's existing pipeline system.
The $246 million East 300 Upgrade Project includes the installation of two new natural gas compressor units in Pennsylvania and Sussex County and the construction of an all-new compressor station complex in West Milford. Under development in a former quarry near Monksville Reservoir, the complex is due to include a 19,000-horsepower electric compressor, a 3,500-square-foot office with a septic system and a 69-kilovolt electrical substation, records show.
In taking court action, officials from environmental nonprofits, namely Food & Water Watch, the New Jersey Highlands Coalition and the Sierra Club, have contended that the construction project in West Milford is far from a routine upgrade. Those groups are seeking to have the project stopped entirely, citing concerns over the potential for pollution in New Jersey and beyond. If completed, the project would pump natural gas captured outside of the state to proposed new hookups in Westchester County, New York, through an agreement with Consolidated Edison, records show.
In their opinion on Thursday, judges from the Appellate Division said DEP officials need to reconsider whether the project is indeed a "routine upgrade" to the company's existing 300 Line natural gas pipeline. The court subsequently invalidated the project's Highlands Act exemption and remanded the matter back to the DEP for further review.
Although the court left the determination on whether the project is a routine upgrade to department officials, the judges in their opinion said state legislators in adopting the Highlands Act did not intend to "exempt any upgrade a utility might propose." The judges questioned the position of department and pipeline representatives in claiming the exemption for "routine maintenance and operations, rehabilitation, preservation, reconstruction, repair, or upgrade of public utility lines, rights of way, or systems" applies to a $108 million new construction project in West Milford that pipeline officials have often described as an "upgrade."
“The court referenced the preamble of the Highlands Act, which makes the case for protecting the exceptional natural resources of the Highlands, which were under grave threat due to uncontrolled sprawl development," said Elliott Ruga, the policy and communications director for the New Jersey Highlands Coalition. "The court redrew the line against major developments that the Highlands Act intended to stop."
In their ruling, the judges said pipeline representatives did not apply for a stay in the case and have been proceeding with the project “at their own risk." Representatives for the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company's parent company, Kinder Morgan, said they had no comment on the recent court opinion or its impact on the East 300 Upgrade Project.

ALLENDALE — Northern Highlands knows the challenges of Group 4 football all too well. In what could be the most stacked Group in New Jersey, you better be battle-tested if you harbor any hopes of attaining a championship.
That’s why the Highlanders opened up against one of the top teams in South Jersey, Willingboro on Friday night. The Chimeras obliged by playing Highlands rough and tough. In the end, the deciding factor was a veteran offense.
Highlands got their season rolling with a 35-26 football win over Willingboro on Friday night, thanks to both the arm and the legs of quarterback Nate Johnson and an offense that looked more like it was October than the end of August.
The Highlanders scored on each of their first three possessions, taking the pressure off of a defense that has plenty of newcomers and was facing a Chimera offense that featured a multi-dimensional quarterback and a solid running back.
NH struck first on a 36-yard screen pass from Johnson to Cole Stecker 2:41 into the game. Willingboro responded with a 14-play drive leading to a Lamar Best touchdown pass to Nasir Hawkins. Without a kicker, they went for two and missed.
Johnson hit Chase Calarco in the flat for a 12-yard TD to make it 14-6 before Willingboro tied it at 14 on a Derrick Bryant 8-yard run and a two-point conversion pass. Matthew Boydell’s 3-yard run put Highlands up 21-14, and the Chimera offense finally blinked as a Jesse DeNobile sack forced a punt just before halftime.
The teams traded interceptions at the beginning of the third quarter and Willingboro got the best of the exchange, with Hawkins taking his pick back to the Highlands 6. Best scored from two yards out on third down, but the Highlander defense came up big on the two-point try with Jeremiah Rivera breaking up the pass to maintain a 21-20 NH lead.
Johnson came back with a 36-yard flat pass to Calarco for a touchdown and a 29-20 lead and added a 1-yard QB sneak to make it 35-20 with 8:59 left in the game. Willingboro scored on a 9-yard Best to Jarelle Taylor TD pass with 29.2 seconds left, but the two-point conversion was deflected away and Highlands recovered the onside kick.
For Northern Highlands, it was a good start to its defense of the North Group 4 title. They got exactly what they needed, a challenge to both sides of the ball and a successful ending.
For Willingboro, it was a disappointing loss, but a solid building block. A Group 2 school that consistently plays bigger schools, they showed they are once again going to be a handful for any opponent and will be primed for the South Group 2 postseason.
The first game always brings out some of the things that you just can’t prepare for or expect in the preseason. Four holding penalties by the Highlanders stood out, though they were able to overcome three of them (the fourth was right before the interception). The defense had numerous missed tackles, and while you can tip your cap to the Willingboro skill players for their elusiveness, you can bet that there will be an emphasis on tackling drills this week in practice.
The Chimeras fell prey to the Highlanders’ quick counts as Johnson kept them off-balance. They were hit with defensive encroachment penalties five times, two of them resulting in first downs. Johnson was also able to exploit the Willingboro defense with quick reads that allowed him to find seams into the second level.
You can make a solid case for Rivera’s pass breakup on the two-point conversion that could have given Willingboro the lead. Had the Chimeras been able to jump ahead, it would have negated the early Highlands efficiency and potentially changed the complexion of the game.
Instead, they fed off the stop and had plays of 16, 17 (after a holding penalty) 10 and 36 yards to score right back.
Johnson was 14 of 20 passing for 212 yards (12 of 15, 177 in the first half) with three touchdowns and one interception. He spread the ball around to eight different receivers before halftime. He also had 92 rushing yards on 12 runs.
Highlands had 366 total yards and Willingboro had 282. Best was 18 of 28 passing for 164 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, but was just 9 of 17 for 63 yards in the second half. Bryant had 24 carries for 91 yards.
“Those weren’t designed runs; they were designed reads. He (Johnson) is just so quick with his reads that he makes it look like a designed run. We knew we were going to need the offense to take control, and they did. The holding penalties need to get cleaned up, but I thought they did a good job of keeping (Johnson) upright and giving him the ability to make those reads and throws.” – Northern Highlands coach Dave Cord
“We’ve been on a roll since we started summer workouts, and with so many guys coming back we were confident that we could come into the season with a lot of confidence. We have a really good group of backs and we rotate them in and some good receivers. That makes things a lot easier for me; all I have to do is find the guy in space.” – Johnson.
