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 Sea Bright 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 Sea Bright 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 Sea Bright 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 Sea Bright. 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 Sea Bright 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 Sea Bright, 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.

SEA BRIGHT, N.J. -- Beachgoers enjoyed the sun and surf this Memorial Day Weekend.
The rip current risk was high Monday, because of a low pressure system to the south and winds rolling in off the water to the east.
CBS2's Vanessa Murdock was in Sea Bright, New Jersey, where it was bright but breezy. She found sparkling sun, warm sand and rough surf driven by whipping winds that stood American flags at attention.
Kathryn Martin and Sarah Potts kept watch over beach access.
"Still got a good crowd on the beach, definitely a good crowd," Martin said.
"Are you surprised to see as many people out there as there are?" Murdock asked.
"For as windy as it is, yes," Potts replied.
Four-year-old Jameson braved the wind head-on, digging holes big enough for the little guy to fit in but have trouble getting out of.
"Making sandcastles and digging," he said.
In the surf, there was no one -- for good reason. Lifeguards swapped out yellow flags for red, indicating a high risk of rip currents on a day so many hoped to enjoy the water.
"It's a little windy, but we're doing our best. We brought our beach sweatshirts," said Jocelyn Marx, of Tinton Falls.
Sheets chimed along the Shrewsbury River at Carriage House Marina, where owner Lance Cunningham had a busy spring of launching 150 boats.
"I'm sitting here relaxing. I worked in the garden for two, three hours this morning. No emergency haul-outs for boats today," he said. "It's warm, it's sunny, it's gorgeous out. Sea Bright -- beautiful place."
A beautiful place to celebrate and remember. Michael Mayer thinks of his father who served in the Army this Memorial Day.
"Instead of the saying, 'Happy Memorial Day," the best thing to probably say to someone is, 'Have a meaningful Memorial Day,'" said his wife Virginia Castillo.
Vanessa Murdock joined the CBS 2 Weather Team in October 2011 as the weekend morning meteorologist and weekday reporter.

HOBOKEN, New Jersey (WABC) -- The rain made a mess in Hoboken as Madison Street as it was flooded by the intense rain and turned into a lake.
Drivers were still trying to get through and risk getting their vehicles stalled in water that covered the hoods of some cars.
Several parked cars never stood a chance and are stalled where they last stopped. One resident went the wrong way to avoid the flooded roads. In Hoboken, several garden apartments were filled with floodwater and had to be pumped out. Local officials are prepared for more heavy rain on Friday evening.
Hoboken is prone to flooding and that is why a State of Emergency was declared Friday morning. Mayor Rhavi Bhalla urged residents to stay inside because conditions were expected to get worse on Friday evening.
Hoboken officials say they have had no injuries so far - but there have been two rescues. The fire department has been on at least 21 calls to pump out basements.
RELATED | How much rain fell in the Tri-State Area
Governor Murphy has been aware of the flooding problem in both North and Central Jersey. He declared a State of Emergency for all 21 counties in the state.
The torrential rain swept across the Jersey Shore and left several major roads flooded and impassable. The rainwater piled up on highways as visibility dropped. In Sea Bright, residents watched the Shrewsbury River as the tide got higher and higher.
Monica Pizzolato delivers for Instacart - her customer on Friday is at the end of Navesink Drive in Monmouth Beach where the street is flooded and blocked with a stranded SUV.
"I just hit her up and said that somebody's stuck and I don't know what to do now, so I have her food in my truck. This is bad. This is - it's been bad. It's bad," Pizzolato said.
The pounding surf is grinding down at the beaches. Beach erosion was made far worse after days of stormy weather - and it won't get better for several hours, according to Monmouth County Sherriff Shaun Golden.
"We expect it to worsen throughout the evening, as well, as more rain comes down. And we have those tidal changes, so the water is just unable to flow out and drain like it normally would," Golden said.

Sun, sand, surf, and yes, even the familiar cackle of seagulls. Every summer, Jersey Shore’s 130 miles of beaches are jammed packed with visitors jockeying for the best spots to soak it all in.
In the vast majority of those towns from Sandy Hook to Cape May, beach access comes with a cost. Daily, weekly and seasonal beach badge and tag prices have been set for the 2023 season with the highest fee hitting $150. There are still some free options, but you may have to pay for parking.
Pro tip: Some towns offer discounts if you buy seasonal tags before Memorial Day.
Beaches frequently allow free or reduced fees to children, senior citizens, veterans and active military personnel. Some spots offer reduced fees for visitors with disabilities.
Asbury Park, Cape May, Atlantic City, Sea Isle City and Ocean City are a sampling of beach towns that make seaside visits super accessible for those with disabilities. There are entrance ramps to paved beachfront promenades, beach mats on the sand and beach-friendly wheelchairs for visitors. (Which Jersey Shore beaches are most accessible? Check our guide here.)

Voters in two Monmouth County towns are going to the polls Tuesday for a special election on the future of their local schools. On the ballot in Highlands and Atlantic Highlands is the question of whether to merge three school districts — Henry Hudson Regional School District, Atlantic Highlands School District and Highlands School District.
Tara Beams, superintendent of the three districts, said regionalizing would benefit students though the districts already are sharing resources.
Leaders in Highlands are against the plan, though not against regionalizing in general. Mayor Carolyn Boullon said the funding formula would disproportionally hurt Highlands taxpayers.
In addition, neighboring Sea Bright wants to be part of the merger, but other districts that currently receive Sea Bright’s students have petitioned state education authorities to block its inclusion. The unresolved issue of Sea Bright’s inclusion has caused some local leaders to hold back their support of the merger.

A whole lotta love and a whole lotta of rock and roll at DRIFTHOUSE by David Burke on Wednesday, July 26 with Black Dog, NJ’s #1 Led Zeppelin tribute band.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and include the show and complimentary passed hors d’oeuvres. (Al a carte dinner service from 4-7:30.) (732) 530-9760 Tickets online here.
Executive Chef Toni Charmello, a Zeppelin fan - has assembled some themed hors d’oeuvres to be served throughout the special event such as: The Ocean, pretzel crusted crab cakes; The Rover - Traditional Franks In A Blanket, Spicy Mustard; Four Sticks, bruschetta with tomato & basil; Dancing Days, chicken skewers, and much more!
DRIFTHOUSE bartenders, also “Zeppelectics”, have concocted some signature cocktails too, such as Dazed and Confused with Tres Agave Tequila, triple sec, fresh lime juice, cream of coconut, coconut flake rim and lime wedge; Stairway to Heaven with Legrand Kentucky Bourbon, angostura bitters, fresh lemon juice, muddled strawberry, ginger beer and simple syrup.
Chef Charmello will keep the kitchen open with a special menu filled with Led Zeppelin song named dishes including Heartbreaker, clothesline bacon; No Quarter, DRIFTHOUSE burger; Over the Hills and Far Away, rigatoni; and Whole Lotta Love, crispy calamari and plenty more selections.
“We’ve held special events at DRIFTHOUSE before and they were sell-outs,” said co-owner William Stavola. “It’s clear our fans want great food, drinks and to dance the night away to music by our state’s amazing talented artists like Black Dog. So, we’re going to give them what they want. Led Zeppelin’s music lives on through this band. We all love rock and roll including Chef David Burke. It’s time to get the led out.”
“All Zeppelin all the time,” said Rob Malave, lead singer about his band Black Dog. “We all loved Zeppelin and found each other and have been together for 23 years. We are looking forward to our debut south of the Driscoll Bridge at the Jersey Shore. Don’t miss the show it’s going to be super night for all the Zeppelectics!”
The members of the band include Malave, who also plays harmonica, Dan Toto, guitar; Jeff Mott, bass guitar, keyboards and mandolin. According to Maleve, Black Dog pays tribute to the mighty Led Zeppelin with an extensive catalogue of songs comprised of classic masterpieces like "Dazed and Confused", "Heartbreaker", and "Stairway to Heaven", as well as the lesser known B-sides.
The Stavola family have owned and operated the Driftwood Cabana Club where DRIFTHOUSE is located since 1957. They opened their restaurant under another name to the public in the main part of the club in September 2012, one month before Hurricane Sandy struck the shore and destroyed nearly 80 percent of the buildings in Sea Bright. Determined to reopen as quickly as possible to get their employees back to work, the Stavola family was the second business to open in the seaside town after the devastation using their own commercial generator for power. DRIFTHOUSE was the first of David Burke Hospitality Management’s collection of nine unique New Jersey restaurants, also powered through, pivoted and remained open during the pandemic. The full-service restaurant open year-round clearly has staying power and today is a Jersey Shore landmark.
DRIFTHOUSE by David Burke celebrated its fifth anniversary with a whole new look and revamped seafood-focused menu at this year-round, full-service restaurant, mere steps from the beach. The restaurant has a trendy, new brighter maritime decor and new artwork, new black wooden tables and upgraded lighting resulting in a hipper, more casual look.
DRIFTHOUSE by David Burke is open for dinner Tuesday – Saturday 4-10 p.m. and Sunday 4-9 p.m. There is an outdoor dining deck for the summer and Fall. The private Gallery Room is available for social and business events with views of the ocean, and the Jersey Shore’s singular authentic wood-burning fireplace. DRIFTHOUSE, the only oceanfront restaurant in Sea Bright, is located in the Driftwood Cabana Club.
