Smith Chiropractic Gives Back

Giving back to the community we serve is not an option

At Smith Chiropractic giving back to the community we serve is not an option. According to Dr. Smith, “growing up in a family whose motto is, “if you can, you should”, community engagement, volunteerism and giving back comes second nature.

The following are some highlights of our community engagement

  • Berkeley Heights 5K (BH5K) Charity Road Race & Fitness Walk

    When Dr. Smith started the Berkeley Heights 5K (BH5K) charity road race & fitness walk 24 years ago there was some criticism that we kept some of the charitable funds raised, so to answer this, we created the nonprofit Smith Chiropractic Foundation to act as a parent company and to co-present our charity event. Best decision ever! Besides hosting the BH5K annually, the foundation has been able to either host or assist other charitable fundraisers including the Jersey Strong Project. Spearheaded by a group of caring beach kids, the Jersey strong project raised funds to help rebuild the boardwalks in Lavallette, Ortley Beach & Seaside Heights destroyed by Super Storm Sandy.

    In September of 2022, the Berkeley Heights 5K Charity Road Race and Fitness Walk celebrated its 25th anniversary.  We dedicated this race to local first responders and presented checks to the Berkeley Heights Volunteer Rescue and Fire departments as well as to the BH Police Dept.  To date, the race has raised almost $300,000 which is all given back to local organizations.

  • Berkeley Heights Business & Civic Association

    Headquartered at Smith Chiropractic, this local business and civic association with over 300 members has achieved much in less than 3 years since its formation.

What Our Patients Say

Paul G.
auto accident
“I was not a stranger to chiropractic; I had seen two or three doctors previous to the accident. But it was at this time that I had the great good fortune to meet and be treated by Dr. Patrick Smith. Dr. Smith is an extraordinary diagnostician and superb practitioner of his science and art. As pain and stiffness worsened Pat developed a course of treatment that was, and is, most effective in keeping me mobile, flexible and almost, but not entirely, pain free.”
Kay L.
shoulder replacement
“Treatment at Smith Chiropractic has been unerringly professional, kind and so highly intelligent that my 40 years of hospital work has led me to make Smith Chiropractic my first stop whenever I need to consider surgery or medical care or make medical decisions.”
Cindi P. (parent)
sports injuries
“Dr. Smith has treated many of my children's injuries from recovery after broken bones, shoulder tendonitis, pinched nerves, hip flexor problems, and a torn calf muscle. His deep knowledge of how to treat athletes has allowed them to play through their injuries, rather than taking a significant amount of time off from their sport, along with his ability to understand and quickly diagnose a problem, in my opinion, has prevented more severe issues. ”
