OMG! Where do I even begin to explain how wonderful this group is to me!!! They are like family and I love them all dearly. I’ve been coming to them religiously since September of 2015, after I experienced severe, chronic pain in my left shoulder and neck and my dr said to just take Advil and deal with it. Dr. Jones collaborated with Stephanie, the physical therapist, and Peter, the acupuncturist, and together we all decided on a plan of action to alleviate my pain. After a year of weekly acupuncture and PT sessions, I was so much better! I have continued going every week since then, for acupuncture and chiropractic sessions to maintain my pain free-life and general health, as well as to now treat my sciatica. They are the most caring, fun-loving, professional, and knowledgeable group of health experts that I have ever experienced, and I look forward to each and every visit! Highly recommend!!!
This practice is in a league all their own. From the moment you walk through the door; one cannot help but be impressed. Jennifer Collard is the most brilliant, caring and dedicated pelvic floor physical therapist I have had the privilege to work with. My chronic and elusive health challenges require unique and individualized treatment. My symptoms have improved tremendously in a relatively short amount of time in the hands of THE most amazing PT I have ever worked with; truly a GENIUS! Very caring staff and the most beautiful facility make this practice stand out in every way.
I first went to see Dr. Jones after an appointment with an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist and being told that my 16-month old son needed to get tubes in his ears. Devin had had fluid in his ears for about four and a half months and I was told that his hearing was becoming affected. I decided to take Devin to see Dr. Jones after hearing many positive stories about chiropractic work clearing children’s ears. The most amazing part of my experience came just after the first adjustment. My son Devin had only begun walking three weeks prior and I thought it was normal for him to be falling so much and to seem so unbalanced. Dr Jones noticed it immediately and felt that his equilibrium was off. Devin had his first adjustment that day and amazingly walked much more steadily from that moment on! He wobbled much less and fell less frequently. I was truly astonished!
We continued to visit a few times a week for the next 3-4 weeks, during which time I cancelled Devin’s surgical procedure. I was a little anxious about cancelling, but really felt that he wasn’t going to need it. After about one month of treatment, I had Devin’s ears checked and they were clear! It is difficult to explain the wide range of emotion I felt: relief, joy, excitement, gratitude…
Working with Dr. Jones has been a fantastic experience – one we plan to continue.*
In April 2008, I suffered a back injury, with pain so severe I had to go to the emergency room. A few days later, I visited Dr. Steve for the first time. After a couple of weeks of adjustments and other treatments, incuding electrical stimulation, Dr. Steve told me that he wasn’t satisfied with my rate of progress and sent me for an MRI.
The MRI revealed a lot of damage to my lower back including worn, herniated discs, nerve damage and arthritis. With this information in hand, Dr. Steve recommended that I see an orthopedic surgeon. I respected the fact that Dr. Steve encouraged me to seek treatment elsewhere once he became aware of the specific damage to my spine. The orthopedic surgeon advised against surgery and told me that chiropractic care would be a necessary part of my treatment plan. I returned to Dr. Steve, he adjusted (no pun intended) his treatment plan for me and I began to improve.
My back will never be healed but the chiropractic treatments have increased my mobility, strength and helps lessen the chronic pain. Because of the work Dr. Steve and I have done together and the commitment we have both made to my recovery, not even a year later, I have been able to attend Yoga and Tai Chi classes and continue to work with Dr. Steve. He has always been truthful and supportive, which I appreciate. I have never doubted for a moment that he puts my best interests and care first. Chiropractic care will be a part of my lfe for the rest of my life, my only regret is that i didn’t start years earlier.
Finding Dr. Jones had been a real gift, which has turned into a friendship that endures.*
I am so thankful I found Dr. Jones and his amazing crew at Total Health Chiropractic. Two years ago I was forced into early retirement by poor health. I was suffering from chronic pain, having to walk with a cane, I was taking six prescription drugs for varioius ailments and over twenty pills daily. My life was a misery. I went to my primary care physician, a rheumatologist, a pulmonary specialst, a neurologist, a dental specialist and a pain management clinic just to name a few. Not one doctor offered a cause, or treatment other than drugs and had no mention of cures.
After much time, pain and money I started looking for alternative solutions. I was fortunate to find Dr. Jones. After two months of adjustments I am sleeping better solving three of my medical conditions and feel I have plenty of energy. I no longer need a cane to walk and can move with less stiffness and pain. In addition a persistent ear ache is gone after two years and four doctors who did not help.
I am taking one prescription medication, two pills per day, rather than twenty and I’m able to not always need others help. I can enjoy retirement to its fullist. I can not find the words to praise and thank Dr. Jones enough for all he has done for my health. I highly recommend his skills, knowledge and most especially the caring treatment I have received from Dr. Stephen Jones.
In October of 2013, I threw my neck out severely just from hitting it on a desk when reaching for keys that I had dropped on the floor. I have had neck issues for about 15 years after tearing a trapezius muscle in grad school. However, this was by far the worst that it had gone out for many years and significantly impaired my ability to do much of anything. Worse, I had just relocated to Northern NJ and not being able to turn my head while driving was both scary and dangerous.
After suffering with extreme pain when trying to turn and muscle spasms from favoring my neck for a week with no improvement, I decided to try to see if a chiropractor could help. I didn’t want to “wait and see” as I had in the past when I first injured my neck as it had taken me over a year to get to a mostly pain free status when I had hurt it previously and it had tended to “go out” whenever I did certain exercises or was overly stressed anyways. I thought that a chiropractor might help because a friend of a friend had given me a “mini-adjustment” when he saw me struggling with neck pain at my friend’s wedding. As that adjustment had done as much, or even more, good than the 3 months of physical therapy I had undergone with the original injury, I was willing to try anything that might speed up the healing process.
After 2 weeks of no improvement since hitting my head, I had started searching the web for local chiropractic businesses and found Total Health Chiropractic. When I called them after a particularly painful drive home from work (a muscle spasm when driving home from work had almost caused an accident), the staff at Total Health Chiropractic was fantastic. Jacquie was able to schedule me an appointment for the next day and was very helpful when I called to follow up about whether I needed to bring any specific items with me and as to their fragrance policy etc. Dr Jones continued that experience by completely explaining what he intended to do immediately to give me some relief, and what his long term plan would be.
My neck wasn’t cured overnight, but each visit brought relief and demonstrated noticeable results with improved movement. After 2 months though, my neck was pain free, but more importantly, I had significantly improved movement and flexibility in compared with the past decade. I’m finding it to be a welcome change to not plan my work outs or yard work with an eye towards “how would my neck going out affect future travel or work plans.” Moreover, based on this positive experience, I now know that I’m not fated to experience the same chronic back pain that I’ve seen my parents and other family members suffer from.*
I had never been to a chiropractor before but had constant pain in my lower back. After fighting through my fear of chiropractic work, I began to see Dr. Jones in July of 2013 when the pain had spread to my neck and down my arm. The pain was numbing and tingling radiating down my arm.
At my worst, I felt like I had a dead arm. It affected my life so much, especially when I was doing what I loved the most – yoga. I was not able to go into poses all the way and I would be in excruciating pain which caused me to get frustrated. It also affected the little things in life such as writing or typing; the pain would just turn on and limit my abilities.
Since beginning my chiropractic care my movement is 100% better and the pain, numbness, and tingling has gone away. Dr. Jones was able to make assessments about my condition through MRI’s and his treatments. He discovered that the reason for all the pain was due to bulging discs on my cervical spine. My yoga practice continues to improve because of the better movement and less pain that I endure during the class thanks to Dr. Jones’ knowledge and ability to fix the issue.
There are many benefits I have experienced besides pain relief since my chiropractic care has begun. I feel much stronger and after diagnosing my specific problem I learned specific exercises I could do with my trainer. These exercises helped me strengthen and rehabilitate the area that was weak and problematic.
My care in Dr. Jones’ office has been a great experience. Dr. Jones and his staff are warm, friendly, and very caring about your every need. I am always greeted with a smile by Taylore and Jacquie, I always look forward to my appointment. Dr. Jones’ is very knowledgeable and truly is a “miracle worker”. After finding out about my bulging discs, I was not sure that I was ever going to feel good again but with the great chiropractic care I received in this office I am feeling great again.
Thank you for all that you have done*
Dr. Jones and his staff are great people, I have been seeing Dr. Jones for various different pains I was experiencing since he opened his practice in Waldwick several years ago. My children also see Dr. Jones and he is great with teenagers for all types of sports injuries or even just a simple adjustment and he relates with them. I would definitely recommend his practice, for chiropractic, massage and much more.*
Doctor Jones is a fantastic chiropractor and an all around great person. I, my fiance, and my step daughter have all gone to see him and he’s not only taken his time to explain what he is about to do and why the adjustment works/helps and what his aim is, but then does an excellent job with the adjustment, fully customizing each session to what is needed for each individual patient. I initially saw him when I could barely walk due to having not gotten an adjustment for several years and aggravated my condition due to travel and sitting in a cramped airline seat, but now go semi-regularly at the first sign of problems. He always ends up making all of us feel significantly better. He is also extremely reasonable and works with all patients, regardless of insurance, etc.*
I have been a Chiropractic patient my entire life with severe lower back pain. Doctor Jones is the first Chiropractor that I’ve been to where I can confidently say I am no longer in crisis and can now incorporate chiropractic in my life for wellness. I bring my entire family, including my two year old son. It’s a family friendly office, relaxed atmosphere with no pressure. I would recommend him to anyone!*
Love this group of caring people. Always feel better*
I was very reluctant to go to a chiropractor. I didn’t want to be one of those people who spent years getting “adjusted”. However, my sciatica was so bad that I wasn’t able to sleep at night. My orthopedist wanted to put me on the “Advil diet”, but I didn’t want to go through that again. So, I checked with my health plan to find a local chiropractor who was covered by my insurance. When I called the office, the person who answered was very friendly and professional. There were no problems making an appointment. Dr. Jones has a website that allowed me to complete all of my paperwork online, so I wouldn’t have to waste any time on my first visit. His office is modern and clean. His receptionist is exceptionally friendly. Having dealt with so many doctors’ offices with rude and uncooperative staffs, she was a breath of fresh air. Dr. Jones has a great personality. He’s open and very easy to speak with. We discussed my symptoms and he explained to me his recommended course of action. After two sessions, my back pain was gone and we’ve now started to work on my hip pain. My initial concern that he would want me to spend “years” going was unfounded. Based on my progress, he expects me to be done in a matter of a few weeks. I recommend Dr. Jones without reservation.*
Stephanie the physical therapist is thorough, creative in treatment and exercises, and very knowledgeable. I am feeling consistently better since beginning my treatment with her in June.
The entire staff at Total Health is a pleasure! :))*
I have been going to Dr Jones (Love saying it just for the Indiana Jones Reference) for 3 years. I hurt my lower back when i was a teenager and have been going to chiropractors most of my adult life and in those 25 years of chiropractic care Dr Jones is the best I have been to hands down. I recently hurt my arm and had him check it out and he was on point with treatment and advice on how to care for it myself. Go see him yourself and see what I am talking about.*
I busted up my shoulder (labral tear) lifting weights. My Orthopedic doctor told me the ultimate fix would be surgery but after four weeks of PT with Dr. Jones and Staff the pain was gone. I am back in weight room performing some low weight exercises, increasing reps each week. I would highly recommend Dr. Jones and PT Stephanie to anyone in a similar situation. Just stellar! Thanks guys.
The office staff is friendly and while my sessions were not with Dr. Jones directly he would stop by at each of my visits to assess my progress. This is one doc who is touch with any patient walking through his doors. I can’t say enough good things about this practice.*
Dr. Jones is as sincere as they come. He treats people, like myself, with the best care and knowledge along with a personality to fit each individual. I have immense respect for him and his practice. It is always filled with positive energy and you always feel like family.*
Dr Stephen Jones is the most professional thorough chiropractor I have ever seen. I have been using chiropractic since 1979 and Dr Jones is the best. His staff consists of a physical therapist, acupuncturist, massage therapist and office staff. Truly a pleasure to work with.*
Fantastic clinic. Dr Jones and his staff are the best I’ve come across. I cannot recommend them enough.*
I have been going to Total Health for Physical Therapy for about 8 months. I have a condition that requires continuous PT. I have tried many places and find the therapists at Total Health knowledgeable, professional and sensitive. They are always trying new and challenging exercises to improve my condition. I would recommend Total Health to anyone in need of PT.*
Dr Jones is amazing. I use to get stiff necks often. It would take me many visits to feel better. One visit with Dr Jones and I am good as new! He also doesn’t pressure you to come 2-3 times a week. There is no obligation. I go as needed. He takes my insurance and he is very accommodating.*
Dr. Jones and his entire staff go above and beyond for your ‘Wellness’ The setting is warm and friendly and the services are extensive. I’ve experienced chiropractic, physical therapy & massage. – all have been wonderful!! I highly encourage anyone looking to re-align their body or rid themselves of stress to check out Total Health Associates!*
