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 Navesink 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 Navesink 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 Navesink 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 Navesink. 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 Navesink 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 Navesink, 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.

RED BANK - Nestled behind a row of Front Street shops is a muddy square plot overlooking the Navesink River.
“The view is great,” Mayor Pasquale Menna said. “The property is not that beautiful.”
According to Menna, for 30 years, it was a “dirty, ramshackle parking lot.”
On Tuesday, developers from Denholtz Properties broke ground to start transforming it into a 10-unit condominium project called Southbank at the Navesink, two years after its approval.
Steven Denholtz, CEO of Denholtz Properties, said the waterfront residences are planned to be completed in 15 months and will cost over $1.5 million each.

Denholtz said his company had just received approval from New Jersey’s Department of Community Affairs to advertise and promote the property.
In a tight housing market, Denholtz said a couple of people have already expressed interest in buying a condo.
Denholtz Properties, which owns five commercial properties in Red Bank, is also building The Rail, a 57-unit apartment building with ground floor retail space, near Red Bank’s train station. Denholtz estimates that an apartment at The Rail will start at $2,500 per month. The Rail is scheduled to be completed in early 2022.
“We have a really strong desire to be more urban,” Denholtz said.
The Red Bank you don't know:Big changes are coming to the West Side
Both residential projects come in a spate of new residential development in town. Shrewsbury Manor apartments, a two-story, 10-unit building, and Park Valley Development, which is building a four-story, 32-unit building, both won approval in August. A five-story, 210-unit building by Saxum Real Estate won approval in December 2019, but is mired in a dispute over a zoning designation — a dispute that could result in a huge tax break.
The million-dollar condominium and the market-rate apartments are courting two specific demographics according to Menna — entry-level young people and exit-level old people or those downgrading to a more manageable property.
“What keeps a downtown healthy and constantly vibrant is new housing stock. And this is a good project, which will put residential people in the heart of the downtown,” Menna said. “Red Bank needs new housing. Not everyone of the next generation wants a rambling Victorian house that was built in 1901. They don’t have the patience for it. They want something more akin to their generation.”

Menna said such new development would bring more foot traffic into Red Bank and keep the borough economically viable.
The previous owner of the lot, K Hovnanian, had been approved to build a six-story, 24-unit apartment building in the early 2000s, but ultimately did not build on the lot, instead selling to Denholtz Properties.
Menna said he appreciated when developers “mold their application to the reality and still accomplish their goal.”
In a small town with an urban vibe, building height can be a concern among residents and borough officials. Menna said. “A development like this is not a massive development. It’s 10 units. … So, I’m not talking about 50-story high rises.”
Denholtz said Red Bank is “just a great place to be, a great place to live. The rivers, the water, the lifestyle. It’s a nice town.”

It’s a bounty of beauty to behold the wildlife the Navesink supports – Ospreys, Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets and Bald Eagles just to name a few.
And why are they back? Because the river has been cleaned up which provides fish and other species for all the creatures that inhabit the river.
What’s missing? Oysters!
Several years ago, the nonprofit NY/NJ Baykeeper installed an oyster reef in the Navesink but was told by the State to remove it. Their argument was that the reputation of the New Jersey Shellfish Industry could be harmed because oysters could be poached and sold as “safe” causing harm to the public.
Which brings us to the groups rallying to bring back oysters to the Navesink River, not only for consumption but for the benefits that they offer.
Oysters are natural filter feeders. They feed by pumping water through their gills, trapping particles of food as well as nutrients, suspended sediments and chemical contaminants. Each one can filter up to 50 gallons per day! Through this process, oysters help keep the water clean and clear for underwater grasses and other aquatic life.
They also serve as barriers to storms and tides that prevent erosion and protect estuary waters. Introducing oysters and oyster reefs back to the Navesink would be a vital component in keeping the Navesink River healthy and vibrant.
The Navesink Maritime Heritage Association, the NY/NJ Baykeeper, Clean Ocean Action, the Littoral Society, and many others are asking for your support by completing a survey that will push the restoration efforts forward.

The Navesink and Shrewsbury river channels will get dredged next year in a $26 million U.S. Army Corps of Engineer maintenance project.
The Corps will dredge the entrance of the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers at Sandy Hook as well as the Navesink River to the Route 35 Bridge in Red Bank and the Shrewsbury River as far as the Branchport Avenue Bridge in Long Branch, said U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., who announced the project on Wednesday.
The total distance of the dredge work is 14 miles.
Pallone, who chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said the funding for dredge work comes out of the House's Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development spending bill for next year's budget.
The channels, which are federally maintained, are critical to the recreational boating and fishing industries to navigate on the rivers, and the overall health of the rivers which are already stressed from pollution and flooding.
See the above video about water testing on the rivers.
“Our residents have been very concerned and vocal about this issue because the Shrewsbury River's health directly impacts all of Oceanport and the surrounding communities," said Oceanport Mayor Jay Coffey, in a prepared statement on the project.
Steve Remaley, owner of Red Bank Marina, told the press the channel water levels are low, but so is the muck bottom outside the channels. He would like to see future dredging done outside of the channels.
Capt. Dan Schade, who runs river cruises on his two boats the Mariner and the paddlewheel Navesink Queen, said he can't go past the Oceanic Bridge on a low tide due to sandbars in the channel.
"The only time you can do it is on a high tide or you risk running aground. This good news that they're dredging it," Schade said.
“The economic and recreational impact of the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers cannot be underestimated for Middletown and its the surrounding municipalities,” said Middletown Mayor Tony Perry in a prepared statement.

An undetermined species of Vibrio bacteria is causing the death of menhaden baitfish in the Monmouth County waters, state environmental and wildlife officials have said.
Menhaden, a critical fish in the marine food web, have been spotted belly up or rotting on the banks of the Oceanport and Branchport creeks, two feeder creeks to the Shrewsbury River, at Marine Park in Red Bank on the Navesink River, as well as along the Raritan Bay shoreline.
The fish kills have generally been a few hundred fish each.
Larry Hajna, a spokesperson for the Department of Environmental Protection or DEP, said the Division of Fish & Wildlife is investigating the mortalities and others that occurred in the fall.
He said Fish & Wildlife has preliminarily identified an undetermined species of bacteria in the Vibrio family of bacteria as the cause of the mortalities. Vibrio species are quite diverse and common in marine habitats, Hajna said.
"More laboratory work is being done to determine the specific species of bacteria. The DEP is also working with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission to better understand the mortalities," Hajna said.
The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission is the federal agency that manages the stock of menhaden, or bunker as they're also known, along the East Coast.
The fish are commonly used for bait by fishermen and crabbers and are a high source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Coastwide commercial netters can harvest 214,289 tons of menhaden a year. Most of that is processed in Reedsville, Virginia, by Omega Protein for fishmeal and dietary supplements.
Vibrio bacteria have been known to cause illnesses in humans such as gastroenteritis.
Jeff Tittle, director of the New Jersey Sierra Club, said the mortalities are a red flag for serious issues affecting the water quality.
"The Vibrio bacteria causing these fish kills is primarily linked to nutrient pollution from sewage, septic and stormwater runoff. It’s also linked to warmer water, which is connected to climate change. ... This is a direct result of the DEP’s failure to deal with water pollution from nutrients and raw sewage,” Tittel said.
As of now, the DEP said the only fish being affected is the menhaden.
Hajna said there is nothing to suggest human health or other fish, shellfish or wildlife are at risk, but with any wildlife Fish & Wildlife recommends people do not handle, collect or consume any dead fish or those showing signs of disease.
Hajna said similar mortalities have been reported in other parts of the Northeastern U.S.
