Here at Denville Medical, our commitment is to you and your health. We are committed to improving your quality of life by effective treatment and therapy, catered specifically to your needs. Unlike some of our competition, we take a team approach to your treatment plan working together as a unit to provide the best possible care for our patients.
It's easy to start your healing journey at Denville Medical. It all starts when you contact our office to make an appointment. From there, we set you on a course to recovery through a three-step process:
Meet the Doctor: During your initial doctor consultation, we will talk at length about what challenges you're currently facing. From there, we will speak about your goals and what you want to accomplish together. The first conversation with your doctor is crucial and lays the groundwork for a life-changing experience at Denville Medical.
Craft a Customized Treatment Plan for Your Recovery: Some medical and rehabilitation centers in New Jersey apply the same treatments to all patients, regardless of their needs and goals. At Denville Medical, we don't subscribe to the "one size fits all" model. Instead, we rely on our seasoned team of doctors and physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and specialists to find the right solution to your unique situation.
Start Feeling the Relief: Our hard work and commitment to recovery will pay off through our personalized work together. With the help of our skilled doctors and chiropractors, you can finally start living the life you want to live - all on your own terms.
At Denville Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center, we are proud to provide holistic and wellness care that changes lives. Whether your body needs Chiropractor, physical therapy, acupuncture, or needs to see a specialist, we can help.
Here are just a few of the customized therapy services we offer to help our patients live with passion and confidence:
At Denville Medical, your licensed physical therapist's goal is to maximize your body's structure and increase its overall function for long-term health. To accomplish this, our physical therapists combine traditional and innovative techniques focused on increasing muscle strength and improving the body's range of motion. Our goal is to discover the root cause of your pain or mobility problems. That way, we can address the true reason why you need physical therapy, and work towards achieving long-lasting relief.
Of course, we understand that every patient is different. Your doctor can provide expert care in an encouraging environment by creating a customized treatment plan for you using modern, evidence-based research.
Chiropractor is a common service offered at Denville Medical, often combined with our physical therapy, sports medicine, and acupuncture treatments. When delivering a whole wellness and body approach, chiropractic treatments generally focus on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Our chiropractor's primary focus is to aid in adjusting your body's proper structure by improving nerve function and removing imbalances.
Our goal is to work together as a team to get you maximum medical improvement. To determine which chiropractic techniques and treatments are suitable for you, our chiropractors will conduct an initial evaluation to dig deep into your medical history, previous treatments, diagnostic tests, and current conditions. During your first consultation, be sure to ask any questions you may have. Once we agree on your customized chiropractic program, we will begin treatment as soon as possible.
Our patients typically feel relief during their initial visit. Although a reduction in pain is not an indication that the condition is gone, relief is the first step. As the chiropractor adjusts and manipulates your spine and joints, many feel a sense of relief as circulation is restored. A number of our patients admit to experiencing an increased range of motion after their first visit and increased function as they continue their care.
A single migraine can ruin your entire day. Migraines stem from irregular muscle contractions in the neck and head area. Anything from loud music to a bright computer screen can trigger these painful headaches. Fortunately, your chiropractor may be able to help provide an escape from the pain without surgery or drugs. Migraine symptoms include:
After speaking with your Doctor of Chiropractic, he or she may recommend treatments like trigger point therapy, which is a neuromuscular massage. Trigger point therapy boosts blood flow and releases pressure from compressed nerves in your body.
Whether you work in an office 40 hours a week or have to lift heavy items in a warehouse, neck pain is common across all people and professions. Neck pain is debilitating and can be caused by a range of issues like poor posture, work injuries, and harmful sleeping positions. These issues often strain your neck muscles. If you notice any of these symptoms, it could be time to consult with a chiropractor:
Chiropractor helps by relieving nerve and disc pressure. These nerves and discs are located between your vertebrae. After identifying the underlying cause of your pain, your chiropractor may use a combination of treatments to provide relief.
Have you been suffering from sharp pain that shoots down your back to your lower legs? If so, you might have sciatica. Your sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. Sciatic pain begins when your sciatic nerve is pinched or trapped, or you have underlying conditions like spinal stenosis or a herniated disc. Symptoms of Sciatica often include:
Proper Chiropractor can relieve your pain in a gentle, natural way. Since your pain is unique, your treatment plan should be too. Therapies include ultrasounds to reduce swelling, cold therapies to minimize inflammation, and adjustments to restore your vertebrae's alignment.
Joint pain from conditions like Arthritis can strip the joy out of simple activities that we enjoy every day. Fortunately, if you're looking for a non-invasive way to ease joint pain, your chiropractor may be able to help. Great Chiropractor will maximize the functionality of your joints with techniques like ultrasounds, cold laser therapies, and joint manipulation. Usually caused by various forms of Arthritis, age, and injuries, symptoms of joint pain include:
If joint pain affects your daily life, contact a licensed chiropractor to begin treatment ASAP. Your chiropractor will develop a customized plan around your pain to address the root cause of your discomfort.
Our hips serve many functions, from bearing weight to running. Since they're engaged in just about every way we move, hip problems can have serious consequences. Like neck pain, hip pain is very common â so much so that more than 58% of Americans are living with it, according to the CDC. Hip problems are usually caused by injuries or osteoarthritis, though normal wear and tear over time is also a contributing factor. If you notice any of these symptoms, an appointment with a chiropractor may be in order:
Since any joint in the body can be misaligned, like your hip joint, working with a chiropractor could be best for long-term relief. Any joint in the body can be out of alignment, including the hip joint, and it can cause severe pain, discomfort, and limited range of motion. Treatments in your personalized plan may include chiropractic adjustments, stretching, and exercise therapy.
Your spine comprises a litany of moving parts that must work together for healthy mobility. Spinal discs are just one of these parts, which act as cushions between your vertebrae. When you have a herniated disc, the bones in your spine grind against each other, causing intense pain. Also called a slipped disc, this back problem is very common and can be caused by wear and tear with age or traumatic events like car accidents. Keep an eye out for the following symptoms of a herniated disc:
After your chiropractor evaluates your spine for overall functionality, they will develop a personalized treatment plan for ongoing care. Common treatments for herniated discs include spinal manipulation techniques like flexion-distraction and therapeutic exercises.
At Denville Medical, we aim to serve you with long-lasting quality of life through personalized chiropractic treatments in New Jersey. The path to a pain-free life begins with a customized treatment plan tailored to your body and needs. We start with your first evaluation, where our experts dig deep into your medical history, current condition, your overall health goals and perform diagnostic tests. From there, we'll create your plan and help you hit your milestones every step of the way until your quality of life is improved.
If you're sick and tired of living with painful limitations, we're here to help you break free. No surgery. No addictive medicine. Only comprehensive Chiropractor, crafted with health and happiness in mind.
Answer : While some chiropractors rely on outdated techniques to treat patients, our team uses a combination of tried-and-true methods and modern strategies, including:
Answer : During your first visit with our physical therapist, we will complete a series of tests and screenings to establish a baseline for your care. You can expect to complete stability screenings, strength tests, and computerized range of motion tests. These tests ensure your doctor understands how your muscles are functioning. Once complete, your therapist will create a custom treatment plan for your physical therapy, so we can move forward with your care. During your time at Denville Medical, you should expect adjustments to your treatment plan as you make progress.
Answer : We get this question a lot, and we can certainly understand why. Unfortunately, we cannot provide you with an exact answer because every patient has different needs relating to their injuries and issues. Your level of stability and functionality depends on your condition, your goals, and your motivation to heal. For acute pain, patients typically experience relief in 2-3 weeks. Patients with forms of chronic pain usually feel optimal results after their first full course of therapy (4-6 weeks). Since our goal is to achieve maximum medical improvement, our doctors continuously monitor your progress and adjust treatment accordingly.
If we could offer you one piece of advice, it would be not to settle for mediocre medical treatment and therapeutic options. If you're looking for a team of doctors and therapists who work together and take an interdisciplinary approach to healing, Denville Medical & Sports Rehabilitation is here for you. Contact our office today to learn more about how we can help you achieve your chiropractic goals and live your life, pain-free.973-627-7888

"There's so much to be done and I want to help if I can." Eleanor Roosevelt in Maddie & Eleanor
The Growing Stage (TGS), The Children's Theatre of New Jersey has done it again! They have succeeded in providing area audiences with the finest in youth and family entertainment with the 2022 Laurie Award winning play, Maddie & Eleanor. Written by Martha King DeSilva and expertly directed by the theatre's Executive Director, Stephen L. Fredericks, the play should have many opportunities to be produced in the future. At the weekday matinee we attended, the show's well-crafted story, top-notch staging, and cast that shined bright in their roles captivated the student audience.
Maddie is a fourth grader experiencing many of the issues that kids her age encounter including best friend problems and her indecision about participating in after school activities. When Maddie's I-Phone is accidently breaks, it mysteriously connects to Eleanor Roosevelt's microphone when the First Lady is preparing her radio address. During their regular conversations across time, Maddie learns about Eleanor's fine qualities and history while Eleanor relates well to the trials of a young girl. Other characters that round out the story include Maddie's mother, Karen; Maddie's classmates, Eleanor's daughter, Anna; and the First Lady's assistant.
The cast mastered their roles and several of the actors portrayed multiple characters seamlessly. The company included Brianna Martinez as Maddie, Lisa G. Andreacchi as Eleanor Roosevelt, Belinda Diaz-Perez as Karen, Jeorgi Smith as Anna/Sophia, Donald Danford as Young Man/Others, Davis Cameron Lemley as Josh/Others, Nicole DeLuca as Chloe/Others.
The many well-played scenes included Maddie telling her mom about her difficult day at school; Maddie breaking her I-Phone and being connected to Eleanor; Eleanor's surprise at hearing communication through her radio microphone; the commercials that precede Eleanor's radio addresses; Josh hoping for a snow day; Maddie and Eleanor doing a Tik-Tok dance; Eleanor's assistant telling her that he will be going to war; Karen giving Maddie a new phone; Maddie and Karen at the Apple Store; Anna's pride in her mother; and Maddie making a new friend, Sophia. The authentic projections depicting events surrounding WWII are a fascinating feature of the show.
The Creative Team has done a top job of bringing Maddie & Eleanor to the stage. They include scenic design, set construction, and lighting design by by S.L. Fredericks; costume design by Lori B. Lawrence and Scaramouche LLC; and projections design by David O'Neill. Becky Nitka is the Stage Manager.
The Growing Stage has given Maddie & Eleanor a wonderful world premiere and we hope that the play will be staged at other venues in the future as it is entertaining, clever, and provides a unique learning experience.

Suspended by the state office, locked out of their building and out of money, members of Morris County's oldest Veterans of Foreign Wars post voted on Tuesday to consider dissolution and the surrender of their charter.
But not so fast, said state officials, who informed Netcong Post 2347 that its suspension last week precludes any actions − including a decision for their post to stand down.
"They can't do that," said VFW state Adjutant Ken Hagemann. "They are under the control of the state department commandeer through the administrative committee. They can't do anything. They can't even hold the meeting they held yesterday."
But post Commander Martin Bischoff said that with his members locked out of their deteriorating building and without a canteen license, which allows the post to sell liquor, he sees no way to continue.
"Suspending us and closing our canteen choked our last trickle of income," said Bischoff, a retired Army colonel. "My poor post, after 70 years what a way to go out, by our own guns."
Hagemann was more upbeat about the possibilities to revive Netcong and other posts suspended this month for administrative and other infractions by the state VFW office. Denville Post 2519 and Woodbridge Post 4410 quickly resolved their largely administrative issues and are no longer under suspension. But 10 others remain shuttered and under state control with their futures in limbo.
Hagemann said the state office will send a letter to Netcong members informing them their meeting "was unauthorized and any action taken there is null and void."
"We're going to try and revitalize the post," Hagemann said. "We want to make these posts successful. We don't want to close them down."
Suspended:12 New Jersey VFW posts placed under suspension by state office
Hagemann said he met Tuesday with a Camden County post that had not met since the beginning of the COVID pandemic.
"A lot of members transferred out because they weren't doing much," he said. "But a few people showed up who want to keep it going. We're going to help them move forward."
Hagemann said the state office did grant Netcong an operating exception to allow hall rentals in hopes of generating income. But Bischoff said rentals are not currently practical after a neighboring business prohibited VFW parking in its lot, which the hall had used for decades.
Bischoff said Netcong is down to about 62 members, but many are older veterans, some of whom live in Florida and rarely participate.
"I'm one of the younger guys, and I'm 60, which [the state] beats us up about," he said. "It's hard right now attracting new members."
"It hurts to see a VFW Post close in my legislative district," said state Assemblyman Brian Bergen, a West Point graduate who serves as commander of the Denville post. "As their Assemblyman and their VFW District 10 junior vice commander, I will actively support the members of Post 2347 in finding a new post to call home."
Bischoff said he called a special meeting to vote on the dissolution on Aug. 23. Hagemann said the state office will schedule its own meeting with members.
If Bischoff will not cooperate, "he'll have to be moved aside," Hagemann said.

Following last week’s report about the New Jersey VFW office suspending chapters statewide for various infractions, the struggling Netcong chapter, Morris County’s oldest, unanimously votes to begin dissolution.
The VFW has around 1.5 million members, a drop of a million from 1992. The average age is 67, with 400,000 members over 80. The largest organization of veterans' clubs, the American Legion, has two million members, down from 3.3 million in 1946.
America’s largest and oldest war veterans’ organization began its new membership year earlier this month with almost 1.165 million members, a million less than its peak in 1992, yet significant nonetheless, according to VFW National Commander B.J. Lawrence, who attributes the growth to the organization being more visible on the national scene as well as in more than 6,000 communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, four U.S. territories, and 11 foreign countries.

(NETCONG, NJ) -- The Growing Stage, The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey, presents their first Studio Series of the 41st season, The Giver by Eric Coble from January 19-22 . This play is based on the Newbery Award-winning book by Lois Lowry. This production is directed by Matthew Fralley, The Growing Stage’s Production Manager.
The Giver introduces us to Jonas, who’s world is perfect. Everything is under control and safe. There is no war or fear or pain. There are also no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. But when Jonas turns 12, he is chosen for special training from The Giver—to receive and keep the memories of the community. The Giver is the only person who holds the memories of real pain and real joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life—and the hypocrisy of his utopian world. Through this astonishing and moving adaptation, discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny.
The production features 17 young performers and one adult performer in the role of “The Giver,” hailing from Morris, Sussex and Warren counties. This production is a part of their Studio Presentation Series. This series, initiated in the fall of 2009, has succeeded in engaging both patrons and artists. Targeted for specific-aged audiences rather than the wide-reaching family fare of the Main Stage, the series provides community artists with a unique opportunity to participate in the creative process of “trying out” new, more experimental works under the direction of our professional artists. This program allows their company to both cultivate new talent and challenge audiences.
Tickets are $15 for Adults and $12 for Young People (17 and under) and Seniors (62 and above). To make a purchase, visit www.growingstage.com or call the TGS Box Office at (973) 347-4946. Performances take place Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm, Saturday at 4:00pm and Sunday at 2:00pm.
