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 Sands 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 Sands 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 Sands 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 Sands 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 Sands 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 Sands 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.

MILLBURN, NJ — Paper Mill Playhouse will kick off its production of "The Sound of Music" in December with a number of adult and child stars, including Jacey Sink, 12, who's appeared on TV's "Stranger Things" as young Max Mayfield. Jacey, a Summit resident, is the younger sister of Sadie Sink, who portrays older Max on the hit Netflix show.
"The Sound of Music" follows the journey of a would-be nun who's dispatched to care for the children of a widowed Naval captain. She teaches the kids to sing and falls in love with their gruff lonely goatherd of a dad, all while the Nazis prepare to annex Austria.
Their moral quandary: Do they unwisely compromise, or head for the hills?
The stage show premiered on Broadway in 1959, starring Mary Martin and Theodore Bikel. It won five Tony awards. The classic movie musical premiered in 1965, starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, and won five Academy Awards.
Like many Rogers & Hammerstein musicals, the show has a bright and dark side. The stage show is a bit darker than the film, with its moral reckoning slightly more overt amid the jaunty music.
The renowned Paper Mill Playhouse will put its own imprimatur on the classic starting Dec. 1. Shows run from this Friday through Jan. 1, 2023. Official opening night is this Sunday.
The production will feature several child stars from New Jersey.
Local Child Stars
The von Trapp children will be played by Coleman Simmons (14, from West Orange) as Friedrich, the aformentioned Jacey Sink (12, from Summit) as Louisa, Cody Braverman (10, from Short Hills) as Kurt, Tara Rajan (9, from Sands Point, NY) as Brigitta, Austin Elle Fisher (9, from Tinton Falls) as Marta, Charlotte Sydney Harrington (age 7, from Shelton, CT) as Gretl, and standbys Charlotte Ewing (age 11, from Chatham) and Ethan Joseph (age 12, from Somerset).
The adult stars include Ashley Blanchet (Paper Mill’s Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Broadway’s Waitress) as Maria, Graham Rowat (Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen, Sunset Boulevard) as Captain Georg von Trapp, Cáitlín Burke (The Sound of Music national tour) as Mother Abbess, Emily Borromeo (Broadway’s School of Rock, The Prom first national tour) as Elsa Schraeder, Gavin Lee (Paper Mill’s Beauty and the Beast, Broadway’s SpongeBob SquarePants) as that lovable gadabout, Max Detweiler.
Paper Mill Playhouse offers award-winning access programs and services, and will offer accommodations and showings for people with disabilities on certain dates. Find out more here.
The Playhouse says, "Celebrate the holidays with the heart-soaring melodies of The Sound of Music, including such beloved gems as 'My Favorite Things,' 'Edelweiss,' and 'Climb Ev'ry Mountain.' Directed by Paper Mill Producing Artistic Director Mark S. Hoebee, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s final musical conjures an Austria replete with rolling hills, singing nuns, and a tender love story set in the shadow of World War II. Kenny Ingram (Paper Mill’s Songs for a New World and A Jolly Holiday) returns to choreograph."

UPDATE: You guys are edumacating me left and right!
Thanks to everyone who wrote in....now let's learn.
Shout out to Bryan K.
"I grew up on the shore my whole life. I’m pretty sure it’s the sediment of all the gords/jetty’s rock. It’s very heavy and dense where as the lighter color sand is made of quartz and other minerals that are less dense. As a result, the lighter color sand gets blown as the black sand sinks therefore creating what you are seeing in the sand ripples.
As to why your dog is smelling them, that is just their basic canine instinct to smell from the base up -- no matter how tall 6 feet or 6 centimeters! Enjoy those beachy views!"
P.S. Bryan also revealed that he is a manager over at Stella Marina Restaurant & Bar in Asbury Park so show this local business some love when you can!
Thanks to Angel G:
"The dark ripples in the sand are from the under current & tides. It’s pretty awesome how the under current can drag and reform the underwater sand beds and mud. Glad you're taking time to enjoy a few of god's gifts because more people need to. Stay blessed!"
Mother Nature is a very fascinating artist at times.
With COVID-19 Fatigue being at an all-time high, I try to make a point to take a walk on the beach with my dog, Carolina, at least once a day for fresh air.
But walking on the beach during the off season is very different compared to the Summer months. From May to September, our beaches' sand is refreshed everywhere and redistributed so the beach is even and flat.
Get our free mobile app
But this morning, I took a walk and found something very interesting that may be hard to see so I took multiple photos
Let's take a look:
So I know the pattern of the sand is probably from the wind and even the waves because yes, there are times that the tide has come up that high.
But do you see the black in-between the grooves? This is not the first time I have seen it and I am not sure if this is a bad thing or a good thing.
Because another thing to note that whenever I see the black in these grooves, Carolina is OBSESSED with taking her time to smell the area. Like what in the.....??
Can someone educate me!?
If you know....email me at Nicole.Murray@townsquaremedia.com and I can put together another article to educate the public because we do live at the weekend after all.
Might as well teach me now because before you know it, we'll be back out on our beaches soon! #VodkaBeachParty

POINT PLEASANT BEACH - Shoaling in Manasquan Inlet has created a large sand bar on the Point Pleasant Beach side of the inlet that looked more like a beach during Thursday afternoon's low tide.
The sand has been building up for most of the summer, most likely a result of steady south winds pushing the sand in, according to both fishing boat captains and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The corps has twice this summer dredged the federal navigation channel in the inlet, which connects the Manasquan River to the Atlantic Ocean.
"Undoubtedly the strong southerly wave energy we have been experiencing over the past month has accelerated the sand from the Point Pleasant (area), washing over, around and through the jetties," said Keith Watson, project manager for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District.
Capt. William Egerter Jr., who operates the party boat Dauntless and uses the inlet daily on his way to the Atlantic Ocean fishing grounds, said it hasn't been a navigational hazard so far. However, he said he is leery of coming into the inlet with a heavy sea.
People have also been climbing down from the inlet's T-shaped rocks to stand on the sand bar. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' spokesman Stephen Rochette said people should not do this.
"We’ve seen photos of folks fishing. It’s important to note the jetties and shoals could be hazardous and should not be accessed for any recreation," Rochette said.
Rochette said shoaling has occurred historically in the inlet, though many residents said they've never seen it like this before. The corps did complete a beach fill project from Point Pleasant Beach to Berkeley however, Watson said the shoaling is more of a natural transport phenomenon.
'Why do we need this?'Fishermen fear Hudson Canyon sanctuary will mean more restrictions
The corps doesn't have plans to do more dredging at the moment but it is keeping an eye on the situation.
"We’ll be monitoring the accessibility of the navigation channel and will continue to coordinate with the U.S. Coast Guard," Rochette said.
