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 Oceanport 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 Oceanport 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 Oceanport 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 Oceanport. 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 Oceanport 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 Oceanport, 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.

New Jersey governor Phil Murphy and Netflix have reached a deal that will allow the company to redevelop a 292-acre parcel in Oceanport into a sprawling production campus. Located along Route 35, the property was formerly operated by the United States Army as the Fort Monmouth County defense post, and officially decommissioned between 2011 and 2012.
When complete, the production campus will include 12 new sound stage buildings totaling nearly 500,000 square feet. Some of the existing Fort Monmouth buildings will be repurposed for production-related services, including mill space, studio backlots, and dining spaces, among a myriad of facilities typically found on a Class A production campus.
“We’re thrilled to continue and expand our significant investment in New Jersey and North America,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix co-CEO and chief content officer. “We believe a Netflix studio can boost the local and state economy with thousands of new jobs and billions in economic output, while sparking a vibrant production ecosystem in New Jersey. We look forward to working with governor Murphy, his administration, and local leaders to finalize this deal in the months ahead.”
Netflix was one of four applicants that submitted proposals in response to a request for offers to purchase issued by the Board of the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority in March 2022. The contract specifies a $55 million payment for the parcel, including a $5 million utility contribution and $3 million office relocation fee paid to the authority.
Total project costs are estimated at approximately $848 million.
“This transformative investment will serve as a cornerstone in our efforts to create a thriving industry from whole cloth,” said governor Murphy. “As a result of nearly a billion dollars in film production spending, New Jersey will further solidify its status as an emerging national leader in the television and film industries.”
According to Netflix, the development will create more than 3,500 construction-related jobs and more than 1,500 permanent production jobs when the studio is in operation. Governor Murphy is optimistic that the project will also stimulate the development of new housing, hotels, and ancillary businesses in the surrounding area.
Netflix has not confirmed a construction timeline for the project, nor an anticipated date of completion.

State officials say the long-held rule prohibiting beach access on Sunday mornings is not compliant with NJ law. |Updated Sun, Sep 3, 2023 at 4:09 pm ETOCEAN GROVE, NJ - State officials say a Jersey Shore town’s long-held rule prohibiting beach access on Sunday mornings is not in line with New Jersey law, according to a letter shared by the comm...

OCEAN GROVE, NJ - State officials say a Jersey Shore town’s long-held rule prohibiting beach access on Sunday mornings is not in line with New Jersey law, according to a letter shared by the community advocacy group Neptune United.
In the Ocean Grove section of Neptune Township, which is controlled by the Christian Methodist group Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association, access to the beach is restricted before noon on Sundays through Sept. 3, when the beach closes for the season.
But the camp meeting association, which owns much of the land in Ocean Grove, was sent a warning by the state last month denouncing the use of chain and padlock barriers blocking beach access on Sunday mornings. The action specifically violates a special condition of the Coastal Area Facility Review Act surrounding public access to the beach during daylight hours, Bureau of Coastal and Land Use Compliance and Enforcement Regional Supervisor Robert H. Clark said in the letter.
NJ.com initially reported on the exchange.
“Please be advised that the DEP may continue to monitor the site for compliance and we are available to provide guidance as needed,” Clark wrote.
In a response to the DEP provided to NJ.com, Michael Badger, the president of the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association, said the closure “enhances religious and secular quality of life experiences in Ocean Grove which society recognizes as valuable.”
The camp meeting association has not been issued any fines from the Department of Environmental Protection, the outlet reported.
The policy to close Ocean Grove beach access has been in place for 154 years, Badger told the outlet, and 2023 marked the first year the association was met with complaints.
This isn’t the first time the camp meeting association has been the subject of controversy in recent years. Earlier this year, the group drew criticism from some locals after rebuilding a cross-shaped pier by the waterfront.
Shane Martins, an attorney who lives in Ocean Grove and sits on the Neptune Zoning Board, said last summer he was going to ask the ACLU to look into the legality of cross-shaped pier.
"This is Christian nationalism," Martins said at the time. "We are not a Christian nation; we are a nation that has many Christians in it.”
One Ocean Grove resident, Douglas Grote, told Patch last year he donated $50 to a fundraising campaign to help build the new pier, but added he never would have donated had he first seen a rendering that the pier would be in the shape of a cross.
"It's sectarian," Grote said. "And I'm a Presbyterian. Just this past weekend, I saw brown and black people on the beach in Ocean Grove; I saw people with Muslim scarves, someone in a Jewish scarf, and a transgender person in a halter top and bikini bottoms. If they are out here on the beach and there's a cross right in the middle of their views, I would say that's offensive as all get out. Wouldn't you?"
Back in 2007, the Camp Meeting Association refused to give two lesbian women permission when they applied for a permit to get married at the boardwalk pavilion. The Methodist group denied the women's application, saying civil unions violated Christian doctrine against same-sex marriage.
The couple sued and in 2012, a state administrative law judge ruled the Camp Meeting Association was breaking New Jersey's law against discrimination.
In response, the Camp Meeting Association now does not allow any weddings to be held at its boardwalk pavilion. Read more: Judge Rules In Favor Of Same-Sex Couple In Ocean Grove Discrimination Case

HIGHLANDS, NJ — This week was the start of a major dredging project in the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers.
The dredging started Tuesday, and it was announced by Congressman Frank Pallone (D-NJ6), who was in Highlands that day for the start of the project.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will dredge both the entrance of the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers at Sandy Hook, as well as the Navesink River to Red Bank and the Shrewsbury River as far as the Branchport Avenue Bridge in Long Branch — a total of approximately 14 miles. This is the federal channel that covers most of the waterway boaters use.
The dredging project will take place in three phases:
The first phase includes dredging sand material at the mouth of the Shrewsbury River in Sandy Hook Bay to the Rt. 36 bridge. The second phase will include dredging the remaining sandy material down the Shrewsbury River into the Navesink River as far as the Oceanic Bridge. Sand will then be pumped onto portions of Monmouth Beach. The third phase includes dredging the rest of the federal channel inside the two rivers.
Congressman Pallone secured $26 million for maintenance dredging of the rivers in a federal spending bill signed by President Joe Biden last year.
“I’m proud to announce the start of the Shrewsbury and Navesink dredging project today," said Pallone Tuesday. "I’ve heard from so many people in the communities along the rivers and the boaters who use the channels regularly about the importance of this project."
"This project will ensure safe access to the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers for recreational and commercial fishing and boating uses that are vital to the regional economy,” said NJ's DEP Commissioner Shawn LaTourette. “As an important additional element, the sand dredged to improve navigation will be used to nourish beaches in areas of need in Monmouth Beach."
Highlands Mayor Carolyn Broullon, Oceanport Mayor Jay Coffey and Sea Bright Mayor Brian Kelly were on hand Tuesday to announce the start of the dredging.

OCEAN GROVE, NJ — The cross-shaped pier at Ocean Grove that caused some controversy last summer has been completed, and will open this Saturday, April 15.
This is according to Michael Badger, president of the Camp Meeting Association, a Christian Methodist organization that owns much of the land at Ocean Grove. His group raised the $1.3 million to build the pier.
There will be a ribbon cutting at noon. The pier will extend into the Atlantic Ocean, will be fully open to the public and can be used for fishing, crabbing or simply taking a stroll.
But some argue the pier — which was deliberately designed by the Camp Meeting Association to be in the shape of a cross — is an overtly religious symbol that should not be in a public space.
More importantly, this is hardly the first controversy in tiny, Victorian-era Ocean Grove: In 2007, the Camp Meeting Association refused to give two lesbian women permission when they applied for a permit to get married at the boardwalk pavilion. The Methodist group denied the women's application, saying civil unions violated Christian doctrine against same-sex marriage.
The couple sued and in 2012, a state administrative law judge ruled the Camp Meeting Association was breaking New Jersey's law against discrimination.
In response, the Camp Meeting Association now does not allow any weddings to be held at its boardwalk pavilion. Read more about that: Judge Rules In Favor Of Same-Sex Couple In Ocean Grove Discrimination Case
Also, Ocean Grove's public beaches are closed on Sunday mornings (so town residents can attend church) and for reasons that are unclear, a yoga class was not allowed to be taught on the boardwalk.
Shane Martins, an attorney who lives in Ocean Grove and sits on the Neptune Zoning Board, said last summer he was going to ask the ACLU to look in to the legality of cross-shaped pier.
"This is Christian nationalism," Martins said at the time. "We are not a Christian nation; we are a nation that has many Christians in it."
This week, two days before its grand opening, Badger said no legal opposition was ever filed against the pier, although some New Jersey residents did complain to the state Department of Environmental Protection.
"People were asking Neptune Township to get involved, because Ocean Grove is in Neptune Township. But as Neptune Township has said, because this is oceanfront property it falls under the purview of the NJ DEP."
He said the DEP never once took issue with the shape of the pier and approved a rendering of how it would look more than a year ago. He said the pier is also designed in a "T" to withstand strong storms.
Some Ocean Grove residents who donated to fund the pier's construction said they feel hoodwinked.
Ocean Grove Douglas Grote said he gave $50, but he never would have donated had he first seen a rendering.
Ocean Grove is a tiny Jersey Shore town literally 500 feet away from Asbury Park, a hub of the LGBTQ+ community. Ocean Grove was originally started as a Methodist summer camp and to this day, a Methodist ministry called the Camp Meeting Association owns all the land in Ocean Grove, including the beach and the area where the pier was built. There are regular Christian worship services at Ocean Grove; it is a Methodist seaside summer retreat.

YogaSix, a modern fitness boutique offering a fresh perspective on one of the world’s oldest practices, is opening its new location in Ocean Plaza on April 14, 2023. Located at 1100 NJ-35, Ocean Township, the studio will soon introduce people of all ages and abilities to the various health and wellness benefits of the brand’s unique take on yoga, in a welcoming, modern and calming environment.
The new YogaSix Ocean Plaza is owned by existing YogaSix franchisees Steve and Dana Robinson and operated by general manager, Janie Abreu. The Robinsons are excited to welcome all new and current members to their Ocean Plaza location. After opening their first YogaSix location in Shrewsbury, located in the Shrewsbury Plaza on Rt. 35, the Robinsons have since committed to opening six more locations in the Monmouth County area with Ocean Plaza being the second. They are excited to bring the benefits of yoga to Ocean Plaza and more communities in the future.
“We are looking forward to opening our doors soon to the Ocean Township and nearby communities,” said Steve Robinson. “This location will add something unique to the area fitness scene and provide the locals with something they may not have tried before. It will give new members the opportunity to discover the benefits of yoga in an open and welcoming environment that only YogaSix can provide.”
A variety of yoga classes are offered at YogaSix to encompass everything from deep stretching to stress relief to high intensity training. Offering six core formats – Y6 101, Y6 Restore, Y6 Slow Flow, Y6 Hot, Y6 Power and Y6 Sculpt Flow – each class caters to every fitness level and strengthens the mind-body connection.
The new studio plans to make an impression with its unique, modern version of yoga designed for all levels to feel welcome. Particularly notable is the use of modern language instead of Sanskrit to describe its practice, as the traditional language can be intimidating to newcomers. The studio provides class options for everybody, from beginners seeking a recovery to more advanced students. New students are always greeted by a wellness advisor when they enter the studio to educate and empower them before they engage in a YogaSix experience.
YogaSix Ocean Plaza will soon be open Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. – 9 p.m., 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturdays, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. Monthly memberships are available for four, eight or unlimited visits per month, as well as drop-in packages. Members will be able to leverage both the Ocean Plaza and Shrewsbury Plaza locations.
