Wondering If

Chiropractic Care

Is Right For You?

Welcome to the Office of Dr. Reed Lerman, DC
Manahawkin Pain Relief

Integrated Pain Relief and Wellness Solutions





Class Four IV
Laser Therapy



I’m Dr. Reed Lerman. 

One of the most common reasons people seek the treatment of a chiropractor is back pain. In my practice, I do specialize in providing pain relief for those living with severe back pain, sciatica and bulging or herniated discs. However, chiropractic care can help in the treatment of a variety of acute or chronic issues, including headaches, neck pain, repetitive motion injuries, musculoskeletal and nervous malfunctions due to injury or hereditary and more. 

Chiropractic is a holistic approach to health care, free of prescription drugs and surgery. In my office, I strive to create a relaxed atmosphere and make my patients feel comfortable and confident about the methods available to treat their specific conditions. The goal of chiropractic care is not simply to provide pain relief but to promote overall health and well-being.

I truly enjoy my profession and am committed to offering the highest quality of chiropractic care combined with cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of both chronic lower back and neck pain. I develop personalized treatment plans that integrate bodywork, spinal decompression with the DRX9000, and laser therapy with Platinum Class IV Laser  technology for the treatment of back and neck pain due to:

  • Herniated/Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Sciatic Leg Pain
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Post Surgical Back Pain
  • Foraminal Stenosis
  • Central Stenosis
  • Migraines and Tension Headaches

My Background

As a young man, I thought long and hard about my career path. After graduating from high school, I was still undecided and worked in the family business while considering my options. Through a unique set of circumstances, I was introduced to chiropractic. After suffering an injury from an auto accident, I went to see a local chiropractor for treatment and experienced  its effectiveness first hand. At the same time, a friend was going to school to become a chiropractor. His excitement about his future profession and my own experience led me to my chosen career path.    

Once I decided to pursue chiropractic, I attended college, received a Bachelor of Science degree. Then I went to the Life University in Marietta, Georgia and earned my Doctorate in Chiropractic. After college, I spent six years in Boston working in multiple chiropractic offices to gain practical experience, but my heart was here at home on LBI. I moved back and opened my own practice in 2006, providing chiropractic care and non-surgical spinal decompression. A year later, I began working with laser therapy to help my mother recover from a severe ankle fracture. 

In addition to chiropractic care, I have over a decade of experience with spinal decompression using the DRX9000 and Class IV Laser Therapy. I care about my patient’s overall well being and am passionate about helping them to live without pain and get back to doing the things they love. A lifelong resident, I live on LBI with my wife. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, raising Koi fish and spending time with family.
