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 Union Beach 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 Union Beach 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 Union Beach 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 Union Beach. 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 Union Beach 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 Union Beach, 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.

When does a kid become a goat? The farm animal needs a full year. The GOAT, David Burke’s restaurant in Union Beach, took nearly as long. When I first visited last July, the 3-month-old kid with the swaggering acronym had not yet established an identity.
A few months later, it had developed a sassy confidence and a neighborhood following. (And soon thereafter, made NJM’s list of favorite Italian restaurants.) The house bruschetta of the day set the tone: rosemary scented, teasingly salted, served with plush house-made ricotta and peppery house-cured beef bresaola. Other daily bruschetti have boasted house-made mozzarella and toppings like prosciutto, shrimp or crab.
Burke and Carmine DiGiovanni, the executive vice president of culinary operations at David Burke Hospitality, keep the menu big and varied. That way, says Burke, “twice-a-week regulars never get déjà vu.” From the wood-burning brick oven come signature thin-crust pizzas, which most patrons start with. The wild-mushroom and truffle pie combines three cheeses, including house-made mozzarella. The Angry Butcher, a Burke signature, is blanketed with pepperoni, prosciutto, chorizo, peppery arugula and chili-spiked honey. Star pizza, folded into an eight-pointed star, bursts with ricotta and pepperoni.
The palate-pleasing chopped salad—“really a chopped antipasto,” in Burke’s description—involves julienned salami, provolone, Parmesan, tomato, chickpeas, cucumber and olives. To round out the textures and flavors, Burke adds butternut squash and fresh fig, with garlic-rubbed avocado toast on the side.
Burke grew up half a mile away, in Hazlet. “I’d pedal past this building on my bike all the time,” he says. “First it was an Irish bar. The parking lot had more motorcycles than cars. Then it became Piero’s, which lasted 30 years, dishing out spaghetti for the kids and scallopine for the parents. And then it sat empty. I felt it was waiting to become the fun, modern trattoria that Route 36 was in need of.”
Burke himself designed the GOAT’s festive, block-pattern carpet (“a mod patchwork,” he calls it) and commissioned lighthearted paintings by Monmouth County artists of goats decked out in sunglasses and trim suits. Varied seating areas invite diners “to choose your own Italian dining style,” he says: beer and bites at the four-sided bar; pizza at private-feeling high-tops in view of the brick oven; family tables by the windows; or plush seats in the air-kissy, date-night front section.
The GOAT’s half-dozen pastas are all worth trying. (I did.) Burke’s take on Rome’s iconic spaghetti carbonara is properly cheesy, eggy and bacon sassed, but with orecchiette (“little ears”) subbing for spaghetti, and a half-pound, shelled lobster tail lording over the dish, fit for the Roman sea god, Neptune.
Casarecce, rolled pastas shaped like cinnamon sticks, underlie lump crabmeat and tender, shredded guanciale pork cheek caressed by lemon-garlic gremolata sauce. Frilly edged malfaldine pasta mates well with a rustic Tuscan ragù of rabbit meat (done like pulled pork) with prosciutto, caramelized onions, peas, mascarpone and Parmesan.
Pasta dishes are entrée size, but hearty mains beckon. Seafood scampi spotlights hefty Gulf shrimp. Barnegat scallops deliver the enticing Sicilian flavors of pignoli, raisin and fennel. Lamb shank braised in Barolo with creamy butternut squash and farotto (farro painstakingly stirred like risotto) makes a deeply satisfying winter entrée. It’s so hearty, it begs to be shared. Trade bites with a tablemate who orders the umami-rich beef short ribs with mushroom mac and cheese.
Flaming chicken harkens back to the days of Piero’s, which “made a show of flambéeing their penne alla vodka,” Burke relates. The GOAT’s brined and roasted all-natural half chicken emerges theatrically in Flintstone mode, its drumstick skyward. A server ignites the moat of Pernod jus. Flames leap for a riveting 30 seconds, crisping the skin and conferring a hint of smoke on the chicken and its accompanying tomato-Parmesan risotto.

The GOAT’s à la carte sides are hard to resist. Brussels sprouts with bacon, apple and maple, anyone? But dessert awaits. Someone in your party should order the GOAT cake, which flaunts chocolate mousse over a brownie bottom with almond buttercream and a canopy of cajeta, goat-milk caramel. Another sure bet: chocolate-chip ice cream sliders lavished with marshmallow goo.

I asked Burke if he really thinks the GOAT is the greatest Italian restaurant of all time. “Maybe, but that’s not the meaning,” he replied. “I wanted the name to capture the local personality: smart, stubborn, naturally cool, always looking for something good to eat. Just like a goat.” Plus, he said, “I liked the way ‘meet me at the GOAT’ sounds.”
Plenty of folks are meeting at the GOAT. Its 110 seats are filled most nights with, says Burke, “people from along Route 36 and inland, and lots of Staten Islanders. Imagine,” he marvels. “They’re paying Verrazzano Bridge toll to eat Italian food here in Union Beach.”

According to the 2020 U.S. Census, no Monmouth County municipality lost more of its population over the past 10 years than Union Beach, which experienced an 8.4% decline in residents since 2010.
You don’t need a demographics expert to explain why. Superstorm Sandy flooded 80% of the borough’s homes in 2012. More than 400 of its 2,200 housing units wound up demolished.
“We lost between 9% and 10% of our tax base with Sandy,” borough administrator Bob Howard said.
MORE CENSUS: Lakewood sees NJ's highest population growth
Some of that’s been rebuilt; some hasn’t. The census showed a 5% decrease in Union Beach’s housing units from 2010. The borough’s current population is 5,723, down from 6,245 a decade ago.
“The housing stock that’s being rebuilt is a lot different than what we had here originally,” Howard said. “Back 100 years ago, when the town was first populated to a great extent on 25-foot lots, that was much smaller than what is being built post-Sandy.”
A big change is coming. A long-awaited Army Corps of Engineers flood-control project finally is underway. The beach berm and dune system, which was first approved in 2007, “will affect Union Beach greatly in the future,” Howard said.
“Our beachfront area will be three to four times the size it is,” he said. “Phase one is due to go out to bid in the next couple of months. We’re acquiring the real-estate easements that are necessary now.”
The project will change the flood-zone designation of the Brook Avenue area, which was walloped by Sandy, from a “V zone” (most hazardous; subject to wave inundation) to an “A zone” (susceptible to overflow, but not the increased damage of wave action).
“There is not much area in Union Beach left to be developed,” Howard said. “This is our one tract of land where we will see additional housing in the near future hopefully.”
How much housing, exactly?
“I hate to make a prediction,” Howard said. “Developers have come in to speak to the borough about developing the parcel, and they’ve come in with a very high amount of units, which is understandable coming from them. But we have not had anybody come to the planning board yet for anything official. I would say it will be a significant amount of housing.”
Given how long it’s taken to reach this point, Howard said he could not pinpoint a timetable for construction.
“I would say within a couple of years,” he said.
The result could restore Union Beach’s population to pre-Sandy levels.
“Over the next 10 years, with all the people moving from the cities to the suburb areas and the Army Corps project changing our bayfront area considerably, yes we are very optimistic about that,” Howard said.

The Gress House Holiday Light Spectacular in Union Beach, a longtime holiday staple of Monmouth County's Bayshore region, has been silenced on social media following a Facebook hack.
The illuminated display at the Gress home at 14 Johnson Ave. will be back this year. The Gress family, however, is unable to get the word out via social media.
“I am really struggling without having that page up and going," said Brandon Gress. "Usually now’s the time that we’re hyping people up, like, ‘Oh, we’re getting ready’ and ‘Make sure you check us out in December’ and all that stuff. And it’s unfortunate that we’re not able to do that.”
Gress' personal Facebook page, which he uses to operate the Gress House Holiday Light Spectacular page and publicize his annual display, was found to have been hacked, then deactivated, in September, as first reported by The Star-Ledger.
Attempts to verify and reactivate his account, including submitting his driver's license and passport to the social media juggernaut, have been unsuccessful. He's now been dealing with this for two weeks.
“I’m beyond frustrated with Facebook,” he said
Gress and his mother, Lori, have been decorating the family home for more than a decade. Preparations are already underway for this year's light show, which is typically turned on the weekend after Thanksgiving.
In recent years, the Gress House Holiday Light Spectacular has hosted the "Decorations for Donations" program to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network in Mountainside, raising thousands of dollars for the organization, Gress said.
In an interview with the Asbury Park Press in 2021, Gress said they rotate through their collection of light-up molds; last year it was heavy on snowmen. The home has been featured on ABC's "The Great Christmas Light Fight."
He has "always been obsessed with Christmas lights," he said in 2021.
"My family was so into going to look at everybody else's Christmas lights. I wanted to do that for other people," Gress said. "People drive by and see it, and they're excited. That's why I do it. We are now part of so many of their memories."
Union Beach was among the hardest hit towns during Superstorm Sandy, and News 12 New Jersey’s Tony Caputo spoke with the man who was fire chief when the storm hit – and the events of that night are still very emotional for him.“A lot of our friends, family members, people that I grew up with that don’t live here anymore because they lost everything and there’s just nothing to come back to,” says Robert LaBerta.Floodwaters filled about 80% of the properties and Union Beach streets, rend...
Union Beach was among the hardest hit towns during Superstorm Sandy, and News 12 New Jersey’s Tony Caputo spoke with the man who was fire chief when the storm hit – and the events of that night are still very emotional for him.
“A lot of our friends, family members, people that I grew up with that don’t live here anymore because they lost everything and there’s just nothing to come back to,” says Robert LaBerta.
Floodwaters filled about 80% of the properties and Union Beach streets, rendering fire trucks useless, not to mention the risk was too great to first responders themselves, even as calls for help poured in.
“I recognize the addresses that came in, the names of the people, and we just knew that no matter how hard we tried we just didn’t have enough resources to rescue everybody,” says LaBerta. “We got a call of somebody that said they were holding their baby up over their head and their house as the water was coming up. People saying that they heard people in the water screaming for help. It’s really haunting.”
Not one person lost their life in Union Beach in the storm. LaBerta credits the first responders who were on duty helping anyone they could, even if it was just by communicating and keeping them calm, all while many had no idea if their own loved ones were still alive. But why does he think so many residents decided to stay and not evacuate?
“We had a false alarm a year before, I believe it was Irene, and, you know, we weren’t everybody that that one was going to be bad and it just passed us by, so a lot of people figured it wasn’t going to be as bad as it said it was going to be,” says LaBerta. “You have lifelong residents here who know they grew up here in their homes, they didn’t want to, they felt they were going to make their stand here.”
They all made it, even though some were literally carried out of their flooded destroyed homes.
A $50 million flood mitigation project led by the Army Corp of Engineers is also in the beginning phases to prevent future flood damage in Union Beach like that was seen in Sandy.

For several decades, the vast majority of Union Beach students attended Keyport High School when the time came to leave eighth grade.
That is no longer the case, and the reason why is at issue in an acrimonious legal battle between the two school districts.
Keyport has filed two petitions with the New Jersey Department of Education “regarding the violation of the send relationship to Keyport by Union Beach,” as Keyport Superintendent Lisa Savoia wrote in a recent letter to families in her district. The first petition was filed in 2019, and a new one was filed this past December.
The goal of the petitions is twofold, according to Savoia. First, “the commissioner can order the Union Beach School District to honor the relationship and send high school age students to Keyport High School,” she said in an email to the Asbury Park Press.
Keyport Mariner's Village:What's holding up construction of 120 apartments?
Second, the 2021 petition “is also seeking to have the commissioner address the years of financial harm” caused by Union Beach, Savoia’s letter to parents stated. Specifically, the petition seeks “compensatory damages” from Union Beach and other local districts that have been receiving Union Beach students.
Why? Because the resulting enrollment dip at Keyport High School triggered an accompanying decline in state funding. How steep? Funding figures shared with the Asbury Park Press indicate a drop of $600,000 from 2020-21 to 2021-22 (from $2.8 million to $2.2 million, or 21%).
Where are Union Beach students attending high school? Here's a rundown: Keyport High 124; Red Bank Regional 87; Henry Hudson Regional 10; Raritan 6; out-of-district placements 16; Monmouth County Vocational Schools 12.
Union Beach Superintendent Amanda Lewert did not respond to an interview request from the Asbury Park Press.
She did, however, post a sharply worded reply on her district’s website. It did not deny that Union Beach students are attending other public high schools. It did, however, deny the existence of a send-receive agreement and expressed “complete and utter disgust at Keyport’s demeaning tone about Union Beach students.”
Keyport’s original petition was filed in August 2019 and named the Hazlet and Henry Hudson school districts as respondents (for allegedly being unlawful recipients of Union Beach’s students) along with Union Beach. A second petition was filed two months ago, Savoia said, because the 2019 petition’s progress was “significantly delayed by the pandemic impact on administrative hearings” and “because information obtained in discovery revealed the extent to which Red Bank Regional was involved.”
Savoia told the Asbury Park Press that “information obtained in discovery so far confirms that Union Beach has opted to use taxpayer dollars to pay tuition to send students who belong at Keyport High School to Hazlet, Henry Hudson and Red Bank Regional, while most special needs students (from Union Beach) are sent to Keyport.”
The result, Savoia contends, is a massive financial burden on Keyport — causing cutbacks that are damaging to all students at the high school.
In their letter posted on the Union Beach school district’s website, Lewert and Union Beach Board of Education President Angela Cocuzza called Keyport’s explanation involving students with functional or developmental disabilities “vile and despicable” and “revolting.”
Savoia pushed back against those terms.
“Union Beach is unequivocally wrong in their characterization of how we view our students with disabilities,” she wrote in an email to the Press. “Keyport wants equity for all Keyport High School learners. The intent of the petition is to protect the interests of all of our student population to assure a robust and inclusive school environment in which all students have the opportunity to interact and access our programming.
"Without that balance, the trend could ultimately limit our ability to expand programs and opportunities for all students. This would cause a substantial negative impact on the quality of education received by all pupils remaining at Keyport High School, which includes students from Union Beach.”
Ultimately, this tug-of-war comes down to whether Union Beach is legally bound to send students to Keyport High School. Keyport’s 2021 petition contends that “Keyport and Union Beach entered into a written sending-receiving relationship in 1964, and that sending-receiving relationship has continued to exist since that time.”
Keyport officials say there are only narrow exceptions to this agreement — for example, if another high school offers programming that Keyport does not.
Union Beach says no such agreement exists.
This has to be sorted out by the state Department of Education. If the pace of the 2019 petition is any indication, it could be a while before there is a resolution.
