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 Monroe 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 Monroe 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 Monroe 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 Monroe. 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 Monroe 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 Monroe, 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.

MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) -- A Gloucester County youth baseball team's season was interrupted by vandals.
Early Friday morning, a Monroe Township Little League team discovered some of their equipment was destroyed -- some of it stolen.
The Gloucester County Little League couldn't believe the damage. Now they're trying to clean up and make sure the players have everything they need after everything was damaged or stolen.
Surveillance camera footage showed two people who tried to break the lock box that held the key to the clubhouse early Friday morning.
They couldn't get inside, but they did destroy other parts of the complex, and stole everything inside this shed that housed equipment for the Challenger League.
"The Challenger League is a free benefit that we offer to the physically and mentally disabled children in Monroe Township. It just gives them a chance to be out and doing something normal. Doing something that every other typical kid does every spring and fall," said Heather Brown, lead manager of the Challenger League.
Brown coaches the team of players from ages four to 21 and her daughter, Sarah plays too. She said this equipment means everything to the players.
"I have kids that have favorite bats and I have kids that have favorite helmets, and I have favorite everything. And if you don't keep the routine fairly similar, it will just throw them off for the whole game," Brown said.
Some of the equipment was recovered hours later, like, these waterlogged gloves, the team's favorite bat, and wet uniforms. They are still missing much more, but said they will try to salvage what they can.
"It's unfortunate and it's kinda sad really. I think more than anything I'm just angry that someone would do that, especially a volunteer organization, and then to steal from the Challenger kids is the most disheartening thing to me," said Monroe Township Little League President Jimmy Magee.
But the vandalism didn't stop at the shed. They tore down gutters and even hit the bathroom.
"Looks like they took a bat and came in destroyed the toilet. They destroyed the sink," said Jessica Simpkins, who serves on the Monroe Township Little League Board.
Even though there is still a lot of clean-up to do, they're planning to turn a negative into a positive, especially with help from the community.
"This will be the first time really these kids will have brand new equipment," Brown said.
"It's really incredible when something happens. These people pull together and make it work. So they will be fine, we will make it work," Simpkins said.
The Little League said donations are pouring in and they hope get new equipment and have everything ready to go by Wednesday's game.

Monroe voters rejected a schools improvement project for a third time, while voters in Woodbridge signed off on a revised school plan they had approved in 20...
Unofficial results in Tuesday’s election show Monroe’s $104 million referendum failed by a 4,346-to-3,723 margin. It was the school district’s third attempt to address overcrowding.
School officials said overcrowded and aging facilities in the district, which serves nearly 7,000 students in eight schools, has worsened since referendums were rejected in 2018 and 2019.
This referendum would have funded renovation, refurbishment and safety projects in district schools, including the high school, middle school and Applegarth Elementary School. The district would have received $17.4 million in state aid for the projects, according to school officials.
The average taxpayer whose home is assessed at $320,410 would have seen a $204 rise in taxes.
In Woodbridge, voters approved a $32 million project to renovate Avenel Street School, by a 2,236-to-573 margin, according to unofficial results.
The referendum followed the school district last fall canceling plans to build a new Avenel Street School after construction delayed by the COVID pandemic and supply shortages drove up the cost by at least $15 million, according to district officials.
The new proposal generates no tax increase with no cost to residents, district officials said.
The project includes various improvements, upgrades and renovations and construction of an addition to the existing Avenel Street School, including acquisition and installation of fixtures, furniture, equipment and any site work.
Avenel Street School, which is the oldest in the district at more than 100 years old, houses approximately 400 students in grades K-5.

GLP Capital Partners has purchased 34 Engelhard Drive, a 203,000-square-foot distribution center located in Monroe Township, N.J.
Clarion Partners, the facility’s previous owner, sold the property for $53.8 million, and was represented by a CBRE team led by Vice Chairman Brian Fiumara. Following the sale, the brokerage firm will also handle the property’s leasing.
34 Engelhard Drive was built in 1980 on a 12-acre site. The Class B facility features a 110-foot truck court, alongside rail-served mechanical loading doors with dock levelers and bumpers. According to CommercialEdge information, the facility’s sole tenant is plastic packaging manufacturer Berry Global.
The building’s immediate neighbors include distribution centers operated by the likes of Prologis and L&R Distribution, as well as food storage and fabrication facilities. According to data from Cushman & Wakefield, Monroe Township lies within New Jersey’s largest industrial market by square footage—Middlesex County—which has more than 223 million square feet in its inventory.
An on-ramp to the Interstate 95 sits 1.5 miles north, placing the facility near the midpoint of the drive from New York City to Philadelphia, cities located within 40 and 45 miles, respectively. Further along the Acela corridor, Boston and Washington, D.C., lie within a day’s drive in either direction.
In many metrics, New Jersey is the strongest-performing industrial market in the Northeast. According to data from an August CommercialEdge report, the Garden State recorded nearly $1.2 billion in sales year-to-date, and has the highest average rent among regional markets. Its pipeline of 9 million square feet comes second to Philadelphia, and eclipses Boston and Bridgeport, Conn.
On the investment front, Thor Equities recently closed on a $26.6 million refinancing loan for a 220,000-square-foot property in Bogota, N.J. Around that same time earlier this summer, Bridge Industrial purchased a 115,000-square-foot facility in Linden, N.J., located less than 20 miles from New York City.
Meanwhile, South Jersey is the site of the Garden State Logistics Center, a 1.7 million-square-foot industrial complex being jointly developed by PGIM Real Estate and CTR Partners.

You'll want to check out these diners in South Jersey -- the best of the best.
Right in downtown Berlin on Route 30 is the New Berlin Diner. Lots of chrome and neon here. As one reviewer recently said, "Typical diner with excellent service and prices. Good selection of specials with decent portions. Servers are great!!"
When you're down the shore, Dino's has been a fixture just off of Routes 9 and 50 in Ocean View for almost 45 years.
The Meadows Diner on Route 168 in Blackwood has been a staple in the area for decades, even back when it was the Blackwood Diner. The only thing that gets better marks than their food is their service.
In the heart of Glassboro is Angelo's. A unique, old-school diner with a great neon sign. And they have scrapple on the menu.
This diner at the old Cardiff Circle in Egg Harbor Township has seen a bunch of names over the years. Most recently, it's JJ's and it's getting high reviews online. Note that JJ's closes at 4, so stop by for breakfast or lunch.
Across from the Cherry Hill Mall is the Silver Diner. This isn't your typical diner -- this is food that has been elevated. On their menu are things like omelets with oaxaca black bean salsa, an organic bison pesto burger, and Carolina catfish and succotash.
Right on Broadway in Salem is the Salem Oak Diner, named after the city's famous tree. This is a perfect example of a small, local eatery where everyone knows your name -- and the sign on the roof is pretty cool, too.
At the crossroads of South Jersey, Routes 30, 54, and 206, for 40 years sits the Silver Coin Diner. Everything is on the menu here from mimosas to a "Whole Lotta Meat" omelette.
The Stratford Diner, right on the White Horse Pike, is one of those places that's always been there. Big menu, big portions.
Out in the Penny Pot section of Folsom (not too far from Hammonton) is the Harley Dawn. This was a little place back in the day; it was demolished and they rebuilt a very modern restaurant. The food here is great and when blueberries are in season, they're all over the menu at Harley Dawn.
If you're crossing South Jersey on Route 40, the Point 40 Diner is located right on the Pole Tavern Circle at Route 77. The Point 40 was recently named the best diner in Salem County.
You don't need a ton of chrome and neon to win the hearts of locals. As one person said, "Food is tasty and prepared with love. Fair prices, clean, and cozy. If you like small, simple, family owned places you'll enjoy it here."
Should you find yourself in Gloucester County, swing by the Liberty Diner in Clayton, right on Delsea Drive. You'll find the standard diner fare here -- and creamed chipped beef.
From scrapple bites to penne with shrimp in vodka sauce, this is a great local diner with a local feel.
Right off of Route 9 and Delilah Road in Pleasantville is the Little Goat Diner. This is where locals in the area go for breakfast and lunch.
Among the small list of landmarks in Williamstown is Geets Diner. Every set of directions ever given to, from, or through Williamstown involves a mention of Geet's.

Monroe Township Earns Prestigious Silver Certification from Sustainable Jersey
“Monroe Township has been at the forefront of municipal ‘Going Green’ initiatives for many years thanks to the passion and dedication of our Green Team in partnership with our Environmental Commission who help turn the Township’s commitment to sustainability into action,” said Mayor Stephen Dalina. “It’s thanks to programs such as Sustainable Jersey and volunteers like Karen Polidoro and Renee Haider who co-chair our Environmental Commission that Monroe Township can continue to expand our green initiatives.”
To become Sustainable Jersey certified at the silver-level, Monroe’s Green Team submitted documentation to show it had completed a balance of the required sustainability actions, meeting a minimum of 350 action points as delineated in the application. Monroe earned points for its many community outreach programs, including holding its Green Fair, performing energy audits of all municipal buildings, preserving farmland and open space, diversity initiatives, prescription drug safety and disposal programs, recycling and waste reduction efforts and much more.
“The Sustainable Jersey certified municipalities demonstrate sustainability excellence. The annual awards event at the New Jersey League of Municipalities Conference is a celebration of their accomplishments,” said Randall Solomon, director of Sustainable Jersey. “As New Jersey faces issues such as the climate crisis, a growing equity divide and environmental pollution, the certified towns exemplify the commitment we need to accelerate the transition to a sustainable New Jersey.” Certified towns excelled in areas such as improving energy efficiency, health and
wellness, reducing waste, sustaining local economies, protecting natural resources and advancing the arts.”
