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 Little Silver Point 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 Little Silver Point 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 Little Silver Point 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 Little Silver Point. 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 Little Silver Point 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 Little Silver Point, 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.

On June 24, Little Silver was alive as young and old enjoyed a daylong celebration that marked the 100th anniversary of the date that Little Silver became officially established as its own town, though its history dates back to 1665 when it was part of the sprawling Shrewsbury Township that stretched from Rumson to Ocean Township.
This month, Historic Havens invites you to spend a day touring some of the historic sites of Little Silver while stopping at its many bustling stores and restaurants.
The history of Little Silver begins with the Monmouth Patent, 1665. Twelve parcels of land were given to 12 proprietors, one those were brothers Joseph and Peter Parker, two Quakers from Rhode Island who also helped build Shrewsbury’s Quaker Meeting House in 1672. The brothers bought the neighboring properties on the Rumson peninsula between the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers and established a family home at the site called the Parker Homestead. This was the multi-generational Parker home from 1665 to 1996 when finally, eighth-generation Julia Parker, having no heirs, gave the property to Little Silver. In 2011, the Homestead was placed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places as well as the National Register of Historic Places. The property has been undergoing historic preservation and the beautiful grounds, barns and house are open to the public for tours on Sundays from 1 pm to 4 pm.
Another interesting stop is the small building next to the Little Silver Library and behind the borough offices. This is the Postal Museum, home to not only historic postal items, but also to a treasure trove of other historic items, clothing, documents and photographs of Little Silver and the surrounding area. You’ll also see some nautical items that commemorate the resort life of Little Silver Point. At one time, the shore was lined with huge hotels and boarding houses and was visited by steamships from New York. The museum is open on the first Saturday of each month from 11 am to 1 pm.
Arriving in Little Silver by train brings you right to the charming Little Silver Train Station. The original station was built in 1875 and was replaced by the current sandstone structure which was designed by the noted American architect Henry Hobson Richardson. It opened in 1890 and was placed on the New Jersey State and National Historic Registry in 1984. One sad but important event took place on June 30, 1882, when an accident occurred which claimed three lives. Among the survivors was former President Ulysses S. Grant.
Next to Borough Hall, you’ll find Embury United Methodist Church. The church was originally referred to as the Methodist Church of Parkerville. The present sanctuary was dedicated on Feb. 24, 1869 and was named in honor of Philip Embury, preacher of the first Methodist congregation to be organized in New York City and one of the first in the colonies.
Longtime Little Silver Mayor Bob Neff shares, “It remains my pleasure to serve this wonderful, historic and family-oriented town. While Little Silver was officially incorporated 100 years ago, its history as a community extends well before that, to our first Native American inhabitants and then to the initial European arrivals in the 1600s. We have a number of distinctive historic homes, a vibrant downtown and the best schools around, if I can brag a little. I want to thank our residents and business owners and devoted volunteers, employees and professionals, and I welcome your visit.”
In addition to these locations are Edie’s Restaurant, St. John’s Episcopal Church and many historic homes on the tree-lined streets. Take a look at the Folk Victorian at 381 Branch Ave., the old carriage factory at 189 Rumson Rd. and “Rambler Hedge” at 91 Kings Rd. for some examples of the many historic homes in town.
A highly recommended read is a wonderful book called “A Sketchbook of Little Silver,” written in 1973 by June O. Kennedy that is full of great details and historic photos.

Turning Point, the popular breakfast, lunch, and brunch chain of restaurants, is opening a new restaurant in North Jersey. The newest one will be in Paramus, in Bergen County.
After starting as a single restaurant in Little Silver in 1998, Turning Point has grown to over 20 locations in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.
The company says that the limited hours make owning a franchise even more attractive, by offering a better quality of life for the owner as well as the employees.
"Our franchisees can say goodbye to working 80-hour weeks and say hello to spending more time with their loved ones and controlling their financial destiny."
Their website says that
“Turning Point’s spacious interiors are decorated with natural wood floors, bright traditional colors, and fireplaces. Its menu offers elevated daytime meal options that change with the seasons. Popular items include lobster avocado toast, bacon lollipops, and seven different origins of French-pressed coffee.”

The chain announced in Jan. that they would be franchising the concept; if you want to own one of the franchises, you better have some money; according to a statement, the initial investment to become a Turning Point franchisee ranges from $695,000 - $1,195,000, which includes an initial franchise fee of $45,000.
Their website describes the concept like this:
Every menu item we sell is made from ‘scratch’ soups, dressings, salsa etc. We crack hundreds of eggs a day because we know it’s the best thing for our customers. Every item on our menu is cooked to order… to your requests. We will make it how you like just give us a little time. Our philosophy is “fresh is always best”.
No opening date has been set for the new Paramus location.

Voters in New Jersey’s 12th-largest school district will decide a school construction bond proposal totaling $363 million this week.
The ballot question in Cherry Hill is by far the largest of 11 spending plans, totaling $611 million statewide, up for a vote on Thursday. The projects, if approved, would be eligible for a total $217 million in state funding.
It comes nearly four years after a $210 million referendum in Cherry Hill was defeated.
If approved, the Cherry Hill spending plan would be partially offset by $133 million in state aid, according to the New Jersey School Boards Association.
It is being supported by Cherry Hill Tomorrow, which argues that the K-12 district’s 19 schools have received inadequate state funding for three decades.
Cherry Hill Superintendent Joseph Meloche said “foundational pieces of the infrastructure” need to be upgraded, such as air-conditioning, parking lots, athletic fields, entrances, doors, windows and plumbing.
“These things have to be replaced as we move forward. The most effective way to do that is through the referendum,” Meloche said via a video posted on the school district’s website.
“The bond really focuses on making sure that our buildings are usable, are safe and secure,” Meloche said.

A Cherry Hill resident cited the “sheer size” of the proposal during a radio interview on Monday, in explaining her decision to vote against it.
“People simply do not have any extra income to give to the government,” Pnina Mintz told New Jersey 101.5.
Cherry Hill’s last successful school bond referendum, totaling $52 million, was in 1999.

Hundreds of Little Silver students, teachers and family members teamed up recently to “play ball” for a great cause, when they hosted a charity softball game in support of a borough child’s battle with serious illness.
On Saturday, September 16, the Little Silver community came together to support one of their own, as hundreds of borough students and their families took part in a special “Hits For Lily” fundraiser softball tournament.
The event raised tens of thousands of dollars toward the medical expenses of Lily Ince, as the two year old battles high risk neuroblastoma. Lily is the daughter of Lindsey Ince, who grew up in Little Silver and now teaches second grade at the borough’s Point Road School.
Students cheered for their teachers as the Point Road School teachers played a softball game against the Markham Place School teachers, in what was promoted as the “Battle of the Schools.” Hundreds looked on while enjoying free food, refreshments and children’s activities.
It was a perfect day for a game, with a temperature of 85 degrees, no wind, and not a cloud in the sky. The day kicked off with beautiful renditions of the National Anthem and “God Bless America” performed by Markham Place School chorus members. Lindsey Ince threw out the ceremonial first pitch to her father John Thompson, and then in a very emotional moment, thanked the community for their support and outpouring of love.
The Little Silver community is special and takes a lot of pride in supporting each other, especially when one is in need. This event was a perfect example of what living in a small town is all about.
After months of treatment and sleepless nights, Lily’s prognosis is strong and getting better each day. Donations can still be made online at GoFundMe.com/LoveForLilyJ.
