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".  It was clear to physicians that areas pf the spine became tender and inflammed when a person had a particular illness.  It was well understood that these 'spinal lesions" had a direct corelation to the patient's illness.  These Physicians had developed many different methods for alleviating illness by manipulating these spinal lesions.  The term Physician actually referred to the art of Physically manipulating these spinal lesions.  In 1895, the X-ray machine was developed which allowed Doctors to see the vertebra and correct the misalignments with recision.  This was the break through invetion that allowed for the creation of Chiropractic.  By the way, the word Chiropractic means "done by hand" and is 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 has become more of a medical Doctor providing chemo-therapy and perforiming surgery whereas the modern Chiropractor continues to study and expand on the art of reducing "spinal lesions".  The modern science of Chiropractic is more comprehensive in understanding and correcting the subluxations (spinal lesions) that had been the object of study for thousands of years.  The first step in achieving better health should be to have the spine checked for these spinal misalignments which only a Chiropractic Physician is trained to detect and treat. 

Dr. Walaszczyk's experience in correcting spinal subluxations and soft tissue injuries of the spine and extremities spans over 25 years.  Dr. Walaszczyk begins 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 depending on the X-ray findings.  For those who prefer gentler, less forceful methods, Dr. Walaszczyk provides non-manipulative adjustment services.  Treatment for acute and chronic soft tissue injuries includes specific neuromuscular electric stimulation therapies, ultrasound therapy, and low force spinal decompression.  Clinical rehabilitation exercise is provided on specialized 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.
