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

Galaxy Veronica Mave Skolsky was not the first baby of 2023 to be born in Morris County. But her unscheduled and expedited arrival early Sunday morning certainly started the new year with a bang for her stunned family in Rockaway Township.
Jennifer Skolsky went to bed early on New Year's Eve, feeling the discomfort of a pregnancy that was expected to conclude on Jan. 10. Waking the next morning to contractions at 6:50 a.m., she realized she would soon give birth.
Less than an hour later, while in the bathroom, "I stepped away from the toilet and reached down and held her head as my body expelled her into my hands," Skolsky said. "It was easy and painless. I pulled her up to me as Kyle [her husband] rushed over to wrap us in a towel."
The plan had been for Skolsky to deliver her third child at the Mount Olive birthing center of Midwives of Morris County, which had also delivered her daughter. But as her water broke and contractions intensified, Skolsky knew they would not make it in time from their home in the White Meadow Lake neighborhood.
"She hardly cried, but whimpered enough to let me know she was breathing clearly," Skolsky said. "She was a beautiful pink color and latched easily."
Rockaway EMTs arrived to check on the mother and her 7-pound, 15-ounce, 19.5-inch child. They stayed with them until the midwife arrived.
Her husband, Kyle, summed up his response in one word: "Panic."
"I was in full panic mode," he continued. "Jen was yelling from the other room, 'The baby's coming now!' I literally opened the door and the baby was delivered. The baby flew out of her and she caught her in the air literally as I opened the door to the bathroom. It was crazy."
He finally relaxed when he saw that the baby was moving and eventually made a little whimper.
"She opened her eyes and was moving around, and started nursing right away, so I figured she was OK," he said.

His wife was OK, too.
"The adrenaline made me feel like I could run a marathon right after," Jennifer Skolsky said. "I still feel great."
The family, including Jennifer's son, Anikan, 10, and daughter Journie, 7, remained home for the remainder of the holiday weekend. By Tuesday, the couple were back to work as a real estate sales team for Century 21 Christel Realty in Rockaway.
"Because we are partners and work together, we never really stop," Jennifer Skolsky said. "I can do most of my work from home, and my husband can go out on appointments."
Galaxy Veronica Mave, quick to arrive, has already gained a nickname as well.
"A book we were reading had a name, 'Galaxy,' which was unique but had a more common nickname, 'Alex,' which we thought was cool," Kyle Skolsky said. "We came up with the nickname Lexi, which we like a lot."
For the record, at least one new baby beat Lexi into the new year in Morris County: a girl born at 12:31 a.m. on New Year's Day at Morristown Medical Center. Mother Vinoschandrika Gnanasekaran and father Sri Harsha Bokka of Budd Lake have not yet named their new child.
Saint Clare's Hospital in Denville did not immediately respond to an inquiry about its first baby of 2023.

Super Chix is a rapidly growing fast-casual restaurant chain, and for good reason. Their freshly-prepared, never-frozen approach to chicken has drawn comparisons to chains like Five Guys — a step up from fast food while maintaining a casual dining experience.
The first 2 Super Chix locations in New Jersey have arrived in Morris County. Their East Hanover location opened in September 2022, and the new Rockaway Township location debuted in March 2023 in the Rockaway Townsquare Mall complex.
You’ve likely read about Super Chix’s NJ openings on social media or in local restaurant news. But what should you order when you go, and what can you expect from your visit
The atmosphere at Super Chix restaurants is clean and casual. The interior features bright yellow overhead vents and a mix of stainless steel and wood-grain decor. The order counter provides an open look into the kitchen and food preparation area.
Once you’ve ordered, grab a seat and the staff will deliver the food to your table. There’s a solid array of sauces for your chicken filet or tenders, like Korean BBQ and honey mustard.
Frequent diners enjoy a punch card service that offers free fries on your 3rd visit, free custard on the 6th trip, and a free chicken sandwich or other entree with your ninth order. Delivery options are easily found online.
The menu at Super Chix isn’t overwhelming, but you still might need help narrowing down your options on a first visit. Here are a few menu items that stand out from the pack.
The Super Chix Nashville Hot is a true chicken sandwich classic. Every Super Chix chicken sandwich is available breaded or grilled — order your Nashville Hot chicken breaded for that classic southern comfort feeling.
The Bacavo Ranch is a chicken sandwich served with bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato. It’s topped with buttermilk ranch, and best experienced with a grilled chicken filet.
Dinner guests can order fries with various seasonings. The rosemary pepper fries are far and away the best choice and taste great with or without ketchup. If you desire a more unique side dish, give the fried pickles a try.
Sometimes a classic option is the best. The Super Chix vanilla custard is a proprietary blend with a hint of bourbon in the aftertaste. There are Cold Fusions available that mix your selected custard flavor with mix-ins like Mint Oreo and Pretzel M&Ms.
The Super Chix Crispy Avocado Salad is topped with two half avocados, each breaded and stuffed with gouda cheese for a full-bodied taste you’d never expect in a vegetarian salad. Fresno peppers and jalapeno ranch dressing provide the perfect amount of kick.

Morris County spent nearly $5 million this year to replace its 20-year-old voting machines. But some of those machines rolled out to local precincts for Election Day are malfunctioning, poll workers say, while another town is struggling to accommodate a large voter turnout with half the complement of voting machines they have received in the past.
Chester Township Council President Michael Inganamort, on the ballot this year for mayor, said he was "concerned" about waiting times of more than 90 minutes for District 2 and 3 voting this morning at Town Hall.
He blamed the delays on the township receiving only one machine for each of its five voting districts instead of the usual two. The lines eased after lunch, he said, but he worried the lines would return "after the whistle blows at 5 p.m."
Elsewhere in Morris County, printer problems appeared persistent on three of five voting machines at Dennis O’Brien School in Rockaway Township. The staff was seen banging on the printers to get the long ballot receipts out and said they were hearing "it was happening all over the county."
Election Day live updates:Lengthy Rockaway ballots jamming voting machines
The Morris County Board of Elections did not respond to multiple calls inquiring if any other towns reported printer problems or machine shortages.
Boonton voters experienced similar printer issues with the new machines but they appeared resolved before 9 a.m. One person who couldn’t wait said she was able to cast a provisional ballot.
The Morris County Commissioner Board in late 2021 authorized the purchase of 134 ES&S machines at a cost of $4.9 million. But a delay in authorizing the funds resulted in only partial delivery before the June primary, forcing some of the old Dominion machines back into use.
Hanover Deputy Mayor Thomas "Ace" Gallagher, running unopposed for reelection to the Township Committee, said Hanover districts also had some problems related to paper jams during the day, but "the county was very responsive" and had technicians on site to help resolve the problems.
