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 Sandy Hook 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 Sandy Hook 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 Sandy Hook 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 Sandy Hook. 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 Sandy Hook 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 Sandy Hook, 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.

HIGHLANDS, NJ — Not everyone may know that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) maintains a lab on the tip of Sandy Hook.
NOOA is the same federal agency that declared New Jersey has seen an "unusual" increase in fatal whale strandings in the past seven years, with whale deaths on the rise since 2015. In fact, that lab is where the dead whale found in Raritan Bay last week was towed to, where NOAA scientists cut it open for a necropsy, revealing it had been fatally hit by a motorboat.
And that lab just received $5 million from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) to make critical upgrades to its saltwater intake system.
The current system at the James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory at Sandy Hook "suffers from deferred maintenance that threatens the facility’s core research mission," said the area's local Congressman Frank Pallone (D-NJ6), who pushed to get the funding.
The funding comes from $150 million in the Inflation Reduction Act for upgrades to NOAA facilities nationwide. Pallone said he pushed for money to be spent in the Inflation Reduction Act to preserve NOAA's research.
NOAA grant programs will invest $575 million in collaborative regional projects for coastal resilience that are modeled on Pallone’s Living Shorelines Act. Living shorelines projects support natural infrastructure projects that build coastal flood resilience, restore marine habitats and sustainably manage coastal areas.
“New Jersey is on the frontlines of the climate crisis, and this funding delivers the resources our coastal communities need to strengthen their resilience against the effects of stronger storms and rising sea levels," said Pallone. "Scientists at the Howard Lab develop cutting-edge research that’s critical to our ability to formulate local, national, and international fisheries, marine, and coastal policy. The lab needs properly functioning facilities to carry out their mission, which helps protect coastal communities from the growing effects of the climate crisis."
Pallone also led a years-long effort to formally transfer ownership of the NOAA lab to the federal government, as it had previously been operating under a lease agreement with the state of New Jersey. Because the lab is now owned by the federal government, the lab is again eligible to receive federal money.

HIGHLANDS, NJ — A group of six swimmers had to be rescued from the ocean Sunday at Sandy Hook and one of them, a 15-year-old boy, did not survive after he was pulled from the water.
This happened between 4 and 5 p.m. Sunday, according to Daphne Yun, a spokeswoman for Gateway National Recreation Area-Sandy Hook.
As of Monday night, the National Park Service did not have the teen's name or what town he lived in.
All six were rescued from B Beach, which is a non-lifeguarded beach Sunday afternoon. There are many signs up that say "no swimming" at B Beach.
Five of those pulled from the Atlantic Ocean had to be hospitalized, two taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center and three to Monmouth Medical Center. The sixth declined medical attention. The 15-year-old boy was among those three taken to Monmouth Medical Center and he was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Fox News reports there were strong rip currents and high winds at Sandy Hook and up and down the Jersey Shore over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Witnesses told ABC 7 they heard a mother cry that she could not see her son in the surf on Sunday, and that it was her son who drowned.
National Park Service rangers were assisted with the water rescues by crews from the surrounding towns of Sea Bright, Highlands and Monmouth Beach.

It was a warm weekend, and fishermen were out and about, reeling in fish from several locales. In the mix were perhaps the season's first kingfish.
Those fish were landed Sunday at the southern end of Long Beach Island at Brant Beach, according to Jingle's Bait & Tackle in Beach Haven by anglers fishing in a surf contest. The surf water temperature was in the mid-50s.
Several boat captains were on the trail of the fluke. Almost all of them stayed inside and drifted the rivers or bays where the water is a few degrees warmer than the ocean.
Capt. Tom Buban of the Atlantic Star party boat has been doing alright in Sandy Hook Bay. He's made about 10 trips so far, between his half-day morning and afternoon schedule and has a bit of a bead on the fish. There's been enough fluke around for a couple of anglers to bag the three-fish limit. Jim Pepper, from Edison, was one of them to do so, Buban said. He was on the boat Friday.
The action in the Manasquan River near the mouth of the Point Pleasant Canal and Treasure Island has been pretty good for fluke and bluefish. Zach Thomas at Brielle Bait & Tackle was out Monday morning drifting around the island and said it was pretty crowded with boats. He reeled in a bunch of one- to three-pound blues casting SP Minnows. He observed anglers on the other boats reel in some fluke here and there.
Surf fishermen continue to land striped bass on the Ocean County barrier islands. The surf fishing has been steadier on those big stretches of beach than elsewhere. Grumpy's Bait & Tackle in Seaside Park said the clam bite is still good during the day but anglers fishing at night are doing better on artificial lures. The bass bit kind of cooled a little in Barnegat Bay because big gator blues have invaded and are stealing the show.
Capt. Dave DeGennaro of the Hi Flier still found the stripers floating bait on bobber rigs at Barnegat Inlet. His party landed four keepers between 34 to 36 inches.
Speaking of stripers, the New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council meets Thursday. The big issue it will have to deal with is the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's emergency regulation for striped bass, which changes the size limit for a keeper to 28 to 31 inches. States have until July 2 to implement the ruling,
The Big Jamaica party boat sailed offshore this weekend for tilefish. This time, Capt. Howard Bogan Jr. said they had much better luck. Many people caught their limits of golden tile and he observed a couple of blue line tile, whiting, and bluefish reeled in.
