Chiropractic is the Art of Hands On Healing

Welcome to our website!

Dr. Thomas Walaszczyk is a Board Certified Chiropractor serving Newton, Andover, Sparta, Hampton, Freedon, and the surrounding communities in Sussex and North Warren Counties.

Chiropractic was discovered in 1895 after thousands of years of Doctors investigating what was known as "spinal lesions".  Spinal "lesions" were areas of the spine that were found to be tender and were associated with the nerves that left the spine serving the organs that were involved in a person's illness. The Physicians in the past developed many different methods for alleviating illness by manipulating these spinal nerves.  In Chinese medicine they found these areas and use needles to clear the tension blocking the nerve energy.  Massage therapists rubbed the areas and talked about the lymph fluids. In 1895, with the development of the X-ray machine, for the first time, Doctors could see the vertebra associated with these spinal "lesions" and found the vertebra was out of place causing the interference to normal function.  The new insight lead to the correction of the spinal lesion by correcting the misalignment.  Chiropractic was born due to the X-ray machine.  The word "Chiropractic" actually  means "done by hand" and was derived from the Greek language.  At the same time as Chiropractic was developed, a similiar spinal manipulating method was developed and called Osteopathy.  Osteopathy (D.O.) continues to this day, however the modern Osteopath practices more like a medical Doctor providing chemical therapy or perforiming surgery.  Only Chiropractic  continues to study and expand on the art of reducing these "spinal lesions" which is considered the cause of dis-ease. The modern science of Chiropractic has developed considerably since 1895 however detecting misalignments is still performed by the use of X-rays. People interested in achieving better health or finding a solution to a specific health problem would be well advised to have their spinal columns checked for spinal misalignments.  The Chiropractic profession is the only profession educating and training their Doctors to detect and correct spinal misalignments causing nerve interference.. 

Dr. Walaszczyk's experience in correcting spinal subluxations and soft tissue injuries of the spine and extremities spans over 25 years.  Dr. Walaszczyk begins his examination process with a detailed history of the patient's complaints followed by neurological, orthopedic and Chiropractic evaluations.  Onsite X-ray is conveniently provided for specific evaluation of spinal misalignment evaluation and to rule out pathology.  Treatment includes specific Chiropractic adjustments which are dependent on the X-ray findings.  For those who have fear regarding what they have heard about Chiropractic techniques, Dr. Walaszczyk has been trained in gentle methods which provide excellent results.  Treatment for acute and chronic soft tissue injuries includes neuromuscular electric stimulation, interferential therapy, vasopneumatic therapy, ultrasound therapy, and low force spinal decompression.  Clinical rehabilitation exercises are provided on specialized rehabilitation equipment designed to balance and strengthen the spinal column and pelvis.  Long lasting results are based on the corrective aspect of the procedures provided.  The Science behind these procedures is the ability to measure and correct the spinal misalignments.  Dr. Walaszczyk and his staff at Sussex County Total Health are dedicated to providing patients an affordable, positive experience through which to achieve their individual health care goals. If chiropractic care is right for you, a plan of chiropractic care that is specific to your condition and health goals will be provided.
