Chiropractic care is a form of health care designed to prevent pain, restore normal function to the body, and enhance the overall health and well-being without the use of drugs or surgery. The majority of Chiropractic care focuses on improving the relationship between the spinal column and the nervous system, muscular system, and circulatory system, and the combined effects of those areas on overall health.
The compassionate Chiropractors at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center in Paramus, Bergen County, New Jersey can help alleviate your pain and encourage the body to heal itself naturally by gently manipulating and adjusting the spine.
We treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, and many other conditions that can be found in our patient education library. The Chiropractic Physicians at Paramus Medical and Sports Rehabilitation Center have expertise in evaluating and treating joint pain for multiple areas of the body - this includes shoulder, wrist, elbow, knee and ankle pain.
Techniques our Chiropractors can provide include:
The ArthroStim instrument is a tool that can be used in addition to, or as an alternative to, the traditional “manual adjustment” that people often associate with chiropractic care. Some people, including children, people in acute pain, seniors, and pregnant women, find the ArthroStim technique more comfortable than a manual adjustment.
The instrument applies rapid, low amplitude, repetitive thrust, which allows for effective joint mobilization with very little force. The ArthroStim instrument also stimulates nerve receptors in the area of application. The receptors then send nerve impulses to the brain which gives the brain the information it needs to initiate corrective responses. This addition of a neurological feedback loop often allows for a more rapid response to treatment.
A SIGMA Instrument Method® adjustment involves the use of a special instrument. The instrument produces a speedy thrust.
There are many benefits of this instrument:
- The Sigma Instrument performs an initial computerized analysis indicating these problem areas in the spine.
- The instrument delivers a high velocity, low amplitude motion 12 times per second, and is targeted to a very small area.
- This is an instrument that is very safe, gentle, and effective
- The force of the thrust from the instrument is able to radiate through the joint and the tissues that surround it, releasing muscle spasms that cause pain.
The diversified adjustment is the oldest and most commonly used chiropractic technique. This adjustment is performed with the hands and used to cause motion within the joints. It is a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust that can cause a cavitation or popping sound, which is the carbon dioxide that is trapped within an immobile joint.
This adjustment corrects biomechanical dysfunction caused by everyday activities such as sitting, running, or computer use. Patients suffering from neck pain, headaches, back pain, sciatica, or other functional issues get significant relief from this type of adjustment.
- Increase the intervertebral disc height to remove tension on the annular fibers (the outer rim of the disc) and the spinal nerve by making more room and improving circulation
- Reduce stenotic effects by dropping intradiscal pressure to allow disc reduction
- Increase the size of the intervertebral foramen (up to 28%), lowering pressure of the dorsal root ganglion and the exiting nerve roots
- Restore vertebral joints to their physiological relationships of the motion (realign the spine)
The Graston Technique (GT) is an advanced method of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that is combined with rehabilitative exercises to improve musculoskeletal function. It incorporates the use of six specifically designed stainless steel instruments to aid the Clinician in the detection and treatment of soft tissue dysfunction.
The Graston Technique instruments work by detecting and amplifying the feel of soft tissue restrictions to the hands, similar to how a stethoscope amplifies the sound of a heartbeat. The benefits of GT include improved outcomes, faster return to function, increased patient satisfaction, and improved surgical outcomes via management of scar tissue.
GT is used to treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Tendinopathies, such as tennis elbow and Achilles tendonitis
- Fascial syndromes, such as plantar fasciitis and trigger finger
- Ligament pain syndromes
- Edema reduction
- Scar tissue
- Entrapment syndromes
- Myofascial pain syndromes
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is clinically proven to treat pain and inflammation by penetrating deep into the muscle and tissues. The energy from the laser light can reach beneath the surface to stimulate the body's natural healing response. Laser Therapy is used for people with chronic pain conditions as well as athletes with sports injuries.
Each treatment is painless and it takes less than 10 minutes. The treatment starts working immediately, and you will notice results within 3 to 5 sessions.

Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) is one of the most researched techniques in chiropractic. The distinctiveness of CBP treatment is the attention on structural rehabilitation of the spine and posture. The treatment centers around the concept of "mirror image adjusting," which is accomplished by "passing the patient's abnormal posture through the normal position and stressing it into its mirror image or exact opposite posture.” CBP is said to aim not just for symptom relief but for structural correction.
CBP Practitioners suggest that any abnormal deviation in posture will inevitably lead to a degenerative disease process that will adversely affect their health by impairing joint position sense, causing osteoarthritis, degenerative joint and disc disease, and/or putting tension on the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Dr. Sonia Marques and Dr. Dawn Klose are both Webster Certified practitioners at Paramus Medical and Sports Rehabilitation Center. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and treatment that reduces nerve stress and improves pelvic biomechanics and function. Chiropractors work with the body’s natural ability to adapt and function and care during pregnancy has many potential benefits for both the mother and baby. Treating the mother helps prepare the pelvis for an easier pregnancy by balancing the pelvic structures, muscles and ligaments, reduces potential stress to the uterus by removing torsion of the ligaments that support the uterus, reduces interference to the vital nervous system and decreases the potential for unnecessary intervention by improving function. The potential benefits for the infant as a result of prenatal maternal care include allowing better baby development and growth by reducing interference to the mother’s nervous system and providing pelvic balance as well as offering the baby room to move into the best possible birth position and thus reduce possible birth trauma caused by intervention.
