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.
Some common reasons why patients need physical therapy at Denville Medical include:
Sports Injuries Whether you are on the varsity team of your high school football team or a professional athlete, sports injuries are serious business. Our doctors and physical therapists will develop a plan to help you heal properly, so you can get back in the game sooner rather than later.
Pre and Post Operation With decades of combined experience, our physical therapy experts know that there is a time for gentle healing and a time for aggressive physical rehab. Whether you are scheduled for surgery or have recently been released from the hospital, our therapists are here to help you recover, one step at a time.
Neurological Issues At Denville Medical, we treat much more than sports-based injuries. Whether you're suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, or a vestibular problem, our therapists are trained and certified to help you regain your body's optimal functionality.
Life has a habit of throwing us curveballs. Sure, some surprises only hurt your bank account, like expenses around the home. But more serious incidents, like car wrecks, can inflict physical injuries causing long-term pain. Injury-related problems like neck and back pain affect many Americans daily. Even worse, many hardworking people turn to addictive pain medication and invasive surgeries for relief, only to find themselves deeper in a hole.
If you're in chronic pain or suffer from range of motion problems, you should know that options are available for safer, more effective pain relief. One of the most commonly used solutions is physical therapy. The main goal of physical therapy is to maximize your body's mobility and increase overall function. In order to accomplish this, physical therapy techniques focus on improving range of motion and building muscle strength.
Physical therapy helps people of all ages with illnesses, medical conditions, or injuries that limit their mobility and body functionality. At Denville Medical and Sports Rehabilitation Center, our doctors and physical therapists create customized physical therapy programs to help patients reclaim their lives.
When combined with diet and exercise, many patients are able to enjoy activities that they only thought possible with youth.
Some of the most common techniques that physical therapists use to help patients include:
From improper ergonomics at your office desk to injuries sustained in car wrecks, neck pain is a widespread problem. Taking the proper preventative steps to deal with pain provides relief and can prevent the need for surgery or medication.
Generally, there are two kinds of neck pain: chronic and acute. Acute pain shouldn't last for more than six weeks, while chronic pain can last months or even years. Physical therapy is one of the most recommended treatments for neck pain. Treatments often involve reducing neck exercise, strength training, and stretching. If you're suffering from acute or chronic neck pain, it's important to have tests done by a physical therapist to determine the extent of your injury.
Neck pain is caused by a wide range of problems, like:
After identifying the underlying cause of your condition, your physical therapist will develop a comprehensive treatment to address your pain and provide long-term relief.
Back pain is one of the leading causes of disability in America. Back pain can start innocuously as a small muscle ache but can quickly become a more serious problem that disrupts daily life. Like neck pain, the best way to address the issue is to understand the root cause so that surgery is avoided.
Also like neck pain, back pain is either chronic (longer than six weeks) or acute (less than six weeks). Back pain can be caused by a number of events, like lifting a heavy item or simply sitting wrong for too long. To determine the extent of your injuries, you will need one or more diagnostic tests, like X-rays or MRI scans. Once the root cause of your condition is revealed, your physical therapist will work with Denville Medical doctors to create a treatment plan tailored to your body.
Common conditions linked to back pain include:
Experiencing a herniated disc is something most people dread, but many have to endure. Luckily, PT plays a significant role in herniated disc recovery. Physical therapy not only provides immediate pain relief, it teaches patients how to condition their bodies to avoid worse injuries.
At Denville Medical, our physical therapists and doctors have years of experience helping patients rehabilitate from herniated discs. Patients benefit from several time-tested techniques to relieve pain.
After diagnostic testing, active and passive treatments can include:
Do your hips feel uneven or misaligned? Do you suffer from hip stiffness or pain when the weather changes? Are you having trouble getting around the house like you used to? Your hips bear most of your weight, so it's no surprise that hip pain is very common among Americans.
Fortunately, physical therapy has been proven to provide relief for people dealing with acute or chronic hip pain. As with other forms of pain, you will need diagnostic testing to determine the extent of your hip problems.
Some common causes of hip pain include:
Once your hip issues are properly diagnosed, it's time to find relief. Denville Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center offers several custom solutions, including acupuncture, chiropractic care, and personalized physical therapy.
Like hip pain, knee pain is a common condition in the U.S. and affects millions of people every year. Pain in the knee is caused by many things, including strains, injuries, age, and repetitive trauma. Sometimes, there's no apparent reason for knee pain. When it occurs, you may experience limited knee functionality, like difficulty standing, walking, sitting, and walking up and down stairs.
There are many conditions associated with knee pain, including:
If you notice symptoms like clicking or popping sounds, locking, inflammation, or sharp pains in your knee, physical therapy might be your best bet for relief.
Sometimes, surgery is the only option a patient can choose to alleviate pain from injuries and accidents. When this is the case, physical therapy plays a vital role before and after surgery.
To help you get a better sense of the scope of our physical therapy treatments, we're listing some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive at Denville Medical:
Answer : While some physical therapists 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.
Whether you're dealing with chronic knee pain or acute back pain, relief is in sight. Rather than dangerous medicines and invasive surgeries, we specialize in non-surgical treatments like physical therapy. Our team of physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and primary care doctors have years of experience and work hand-in-hand to give you real pain relief.
If you're sick and tired of living life full of physical pain, now is the time to act. Don't let your body deteriorate â find your new lease on life at Denville Medical and Sports Rehabilitation Center.973-627-7888

MORRISTOWN, NJ — A Morristown hospital is among a slew of New Jersey medical facilities that received the highest rating from a watchdog agency as part of its twice-yearly "safety grades."
On Wednesday, Leapfrog gave Morristown Medical Center in Morristown its 16th consecutive "A" ranking. Summit's Overlook Medical Center, which is a part of the Atlantic Health System along with Morristown, also received an "A" rating.
See the full rating broken down by category here.
The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, grades general hospitals across the country with an "A," "B," "C," "D," or "F" based on more than 30 national performance measures that reflect errors, accidents, injuries, and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
Leapfrog says its hospital rating system is the only one in the country focusing solely on a hospital’s ability to protect patients from preventable errors.
Learn more about their methodology here.
Since 2012, Leapfrog has released Safety Grades twice per year, and Morristown Medical Center has received an "A" the past 16 times in a row.
"These unprecedented grades for our hospitals underscore the commitment Atlantic Health System has toward safety," said Scott Leighty, Executive Vice President and Chief Health System Officer, of Atlantic Health System. "It’s a clear reflection of the quality care and attention to safety that patients and their loved ones receive each day from our talented physicians, nurses, leaders and other team members across each of our medical centers."
Morristown Medical Center ranked above average in almost every category that Leapfrog assessed. The hospital only fell below average in the safety section, reporting a higher number of dangerous blood clots and accidental cuts and tears in surgery.
"This new update of Hospital Safety Grades shows that, at the national level, we saw deterioration in patient safety with the pandemic," said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. "But four of five Atlantic Health System hospitals received an ‘A’ despite those challenges. I congratulate all the leaders, staff, volunteers and clinicians who together made that possible."
New Jersey led the country in the number of hospitals receiving an "A" grade for the latest round of rankings. In total, 31 hospitals received an A, 17 hospitals received a B, 11 hospitals received a C and zero hospitals received a D grade. No hospitals received an F.

We are proud to announce the launch of leasing and look forward to welcoming our first residents in the near future.”

MORRIS PLAINS, NJ - The Morris Plains community are encouraged to vote today, March 14 on the school referendum.
A REFERENDUM is a public vote which gives a school district the ability to finance infrastructure by issued bonds. Without the ability to issue debt and spread the costs of a capital project over time, school districts would be forced to use pay as-you-go financing and significant tax revenues each fiscal year. Relying on tax revenue for infrastructure and/or capital projects is not always feasible.
The district is looking to restore learning spaces, expand programs and add inclusive outdoor environments through new playground and outdoor area.

Polls will be open from 2pm - 8pm in the Morris Plains Community Center. The Community Center is located at 51 Jim Fear Drive.
Ahead of the vote, the school district held three public forums and a walk through of the Mountain Way School.
Read the message from the Morris Plains Board of Education President Tina Perry below:
This Tuesday, March 14th, you will be deciding the next steps for the Morris Plains School District.
On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to thank all of our community members who have educated themselves, engaged in conversations, and shared ideas concerning this referendum. We are all stronger because of your time and insights.
Our school district has established a track record of delivering a high-quality education, employing outstanding educators and administration, creating supportive learning environments, and empowering young learners to excel all while being fiscally responsible. Our excellent schools have been a bedrock of this community, making it a desirable place to live for many.
As we have shared throughout the referendum process, lack of classroom space in Mountain Way School and budget constraints have made it extremely difficult for our district to sustain some of our most meaningful and beneficial educational programs that we have created. These challenges have persisted over recent years, and we found creative solutions to generate revenue and reduce spending without impacting the tax rate and current state of education. Unfortunately, we have exhausted all options and we seek the community for assistance and support. Without addressing the current needs of the school district, program cuts and moving second grade to Borough School will become our new future.
This proposed investment is an important decision for our community. It is critical to maintain the educational environment we expect for the children of Morris Plains and to continue moving our school district forward.
Let's all join in to support our schools, mark your calendars for March 14th (2:00PM - 8:00PM) and please make sure to vote.
President, Morris Plains Board of Education

Veterans Administration and Morris County Veteran Services Office Praised
American Legion Post 59 of Morristown hosted a lunch for the Morris County Veteran Service Office (VSO), the staff at the Veterans Affairs (VA) Clinic at Morris View and Morris County officials to thank them this week for the aid they provide former service members.
“This is a big thank you -- to you from all of us for all of the things you do for us,” said Post 59 Vice Commander Dominick Sabol, as he joined Commander Norus Achmetov and Adjutant Jim Koons in greeting the veteran services professionals at the VA Clinic in Morris Township.
Included in the gathering was Morris County Commissioner Director John Krickus (USMC), Morris County Human Services Director Kasey Errico and Christine Hellyer, Director of the Morris County’s Office of Aging, Disabilities & Community Programming.
“As if our veterans haven’t done enough by serving their country, they literally served us lunch today. It was a nice way for everyone to come together and to not only feel rewarded for the work they do but see how appreciated their work is by those receiving their public service,” Commissioner Director Krickus said.
The guests gathered to converse and enjoy a full spread of sandwiches, fruit and vegetable platters.
The Morris County VSO helps honorably discharged Morris County veterans and their families with their VA benefits and entitlements. Veterans Services Officers can:
“Our VSO has many responsibilities, including local family and health counseling. U.S. Reps. Mikie Sherrill and Tom Kean are working together to identify a location for new Vet Center in Morris County to expand access to mental health counseling for our veterans. Morristown would be an ideal location for such a center,” said Commissioner Director Krickus.
The VA Clinic in Morris County is an outpatient clinic that provides primary care and specialty health services, including laboratory services, mental health care, nutrition services, and more. It is located next to the Morris County VSO at the rear of the Morris View facility at 540 West Hanover Avenue, Morris Township.
VA staff who celebrated at the lunch included Jennifer Panares, Maria Henry, Yaremi Siocha, Michelle Delacruz and Fanya Feggins. Morris County veteran service officers praised at the gathering included Jason Leffler, Jessica Tomalo, and Andrew Cornwallis.

Collection of 125 luxury residences and 20,000 sq. ft. of amenities coming soon near Morris Plains Train Station
Morris Plains’ newest residential community, The American, is nearing completion, with leasing expected to launch in early 2023, according to an announcement from JMF Properties.
Located at 1000 The American Road, The American will deliver a collection of 125 luxury rental residences to the historic borough.
As part of the development process, JMF completed a new pedestrian walkway that connects The American to downtown Morris Plains, providing residents with direct access to an array of neighborhood shops, restaurants and NJ Transit’s Morris Plains train station.
Residents of The American will also be less than a mile from two premium retail properties JMF and partners are developing, Morris Marketplace, which will deliver 140,000 square feet of retail space and a variety of community-oriented attractions, and Cedar Village, where a brand-new 7-Eleven with gas is rising on a property anchored by Lowe’s Home Improvement.
In addition to the well-connected location, the community will provide a well-balanced lifestyle, with plush, modern residences and a generous collection of amenities.
“We are happy to announce that The American will make its debut in early 2023, bringing an entirely new type of luxury housing to Morris Plains,” Joe Forgione, the founder and Principal of JMF Properties stated. “The American will feature an exceptional location near the train station and charming downtown shops and restaurants, which we were able to enhance by providing direct pedestrian access from The American Road to downtown Morris Plains, where no connection was previously available. In today’s market, with new-construction suburban rentals in high demand, we believe this will be a popular choice for Morris County renters, as well as an important asset for the Morris Plains community for many years to come.”
The American was designed with resident quality of life in mind, offering an upscale living experience focused on convenience, comfort, and day-to-day enjoyment. JMF’s signature “inside out” approach to development, which places the resident experience at the center of all decision making, will deliver a variety of spacious one- and two-bedroom residences, including den layouts and private outdoor space in select homes.
The residences will offer up to 1,390 square feet of living space and include features such as nine-foot ceilings, seven-inch composite plank floors, energy efficient LED light fixtures, Energy Star certified appliances, and oversized windows with custom shade treatments. In-unit washer/dryer combo, Moen faucets and shower fixtures, marble mosaic showers, porcelain bath floors, a high-performance heating/cooling system, and Saflok Saffire entry locks with Bluetooth remote feature option are among the many additional finishing touches included.
The gourmet kitchens at The American will stand out for their combination of elegance and high-performance features. Renters will find European-style two tone kitchen cabinetry, quartz countertops with undermount stainless steel sink and faucet, glass tile backsplashes, Whirlpool stainless steel gas burner cooktops, XOC stainless steel glide out visor range vented hoods, Samsung stainless steel refrigerators, and Blomberg dishwashers in every home.
JMF Properties integrated more than 20,000 square feet of dedicated indoor and outdoor amenity space into The American’s design, with the goal of enhancing resident wellness, enjoyment and quality-of-life.
Situated in the heart of Morris County, Morris Plains is a charming borough of close to 6,000 residents. Its town center is just a short walk from The American, where restaurants and eateries such as Arthur’s Tavern, Carmel Haifa Middle Eastern, Time for a Bagel, Tony’s Pizza and Scoop Station Ice Cream line attractive Speedwell Avenue.
The many restaurants, shops, festivals and cultural attractions of downtown Morristown are just a 2.5-mile drive away. Central Park of Morris County, a massive 420-acre recreation complex, is situated directly on the western border of Morris Plains, giving residents easy access to athletic fields, roller hockey rinks, sand volleyball courts, a five-acre dog park, children’s play areas, a natural amphitheater, disc golf course, and 11 miles of trails.
