Chiropractic is a science, art and philosophy that concerns itself with the relationship between the nervous system and function (health) of the body.

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body.

As a chiropractor, I get to help people who suffer from a variety of health issues.

Naturally, chiropractic helps traditional neck and back problems, but chiropractic has also produced wonderful results with a variety of organic and systemic problems. Chiropractic is safe. Chiropractic is natural. And Chiropractic works!

The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, reduct, and prevent nervous system dysfunction due to pinched nerves and muscle spasms. The chiropractic profession specializes in natural and preventative health care.


About Chiropractic Care

Pain is one of the body’s many defense mechanisms. It is meant to act as a warning, informing the brain that there is something wrong—something that can potentially inflict more bodily harm. In many cases, pain is experienced in a flash and then subsides just as quickly. There are instances, however, when one remains in constant pain.

Pain can be a chronic problem, with some people even experiencing pain for years. Causes may vary, but certain medical conditions, past injuries, and a critical problem with the musculoskeletal structure are among the possible reasons for chronic pain. If you are suffering from pain and are looking for effective pain relief treatment, consult a chiropractor at our Manalapan-based practice at your earliest convenience.

These are warning signs that may indicate you have a spinal problem or any other form of musculoskeletal problems:

  • Recurring Headaches
  • Neck, Arm and Shoulder Pain
  • Pain in the Upper or Mid Back
  • Numbness or Tingling in Hands
  • Energy Loss or Chronic Fatigue
  • Lower Back and Leg Pain
  • Numbness in the Legs and Feet
  • Loss of Sleep Due to Your Pain
  • Aches and Pains in Your Joints
  • Abnormal Body Posture
  • Scoliosis or Spinal Curvature

Don’t Ignore These Warning Signs. Call Us… Covered Bridge May Be Able To Help. We also have a massage therapist and medical Doctor on staff.

Chiropractors focus on correcting disordered vertebral joints, which include vertebrae and their boney projections (called facet joints and spinous or transverse processes), shock-absorbing cartilage discs, muscles, ligaments, and nervous tissue. Subluxations – abnormalities of this vertebral complex – affect health by impinging on nerve roots as they exit the complex through channels called intervertebral foramen.
