Dr. Jesse J. Suess grew up in Southern Bergen County, in a small town called Little Ferry. He attended Montclair State University where he completed coursework in Exercise Physiology, Kinesiology and Physical Education. While in school at Montclair, he suffered from back and neck pain after being involved in a car accident. After just a few weeks of Chiropractic care he began to notice a drastic improvement in not only his neck and back pain, but he also began to notice an increase in his energy level and all around health. After experiencing the benefits of Chiropractic care firsthand, he decided to switch careers. Dr. Jesse then moved to St. Louis, Missouri where he attended Logan University-College of Chiropractic graduating with a Bachelor’s in Life Sciences and his Doctorate of Chiropractic. While at Logan, Dr. Jesse stayed very involved in his community by coaching youth sports and working at the YMCA as an after school care counselor at a local elementary school. Dr. Jesse continues to be devoted to helping the youth in his community. He currently teaches health and physical education at Young World Day School, a privately owned elementary school in Mahwah.
In his personal life, Dr. Jesse makes a valiant effort to practice what he preaches. He stays active by feeding his passion for the game of Baseball. On the weekends in the spring and summer you can find Dr. Jesse on the baseball diamond playing for an Amateur Men’s Baseball team in North Jersey. He also coaches a little league baseball team in the spring, and he is an active member of the Professional Baseball Chiropractic Society. Dr. Jesse also enjoys working out, playing golf, and playing hockey. He also loves cooking and he cherishes spending time with his family and friends.
These experiences have allowed Dr. Jesse to gain experience in child and family care as well as sports injuries, which in turn led to his passion for treating pediatric patients and athletes. Dr. Jesse J. Suess believes in the innate wisdom of the body, that through proper nutrition, daily exercise, and regular Chiropractic care a lifestyle full of health and wellness will be achieved!

techniques USED at Suess Family Chiropractic
Diversified technique is the High Velocity/Low Amplitude (HVLA) adjustment that is most commonly used throughout the field of chiropractic. As the name implies, the Diversified Technique can be used to treat many of the joints in the body and is the primary technique used by the doctors in our office.
This low-force technique utilizes a specialized table that is designed to induce flexion in the spine. The technique, originally developed by Dr. James M. Cox, is based on the application of small, precise amounts of flexion distraction to the part of the spine experiencing disc compression or herniation. As the vertebrae in question are gently pulled away from each other, negative pressure draws the herniated or bulging disc back into position, relieving nerve pressure and pain and moving much-needed fluids back into the disc.
The Thompson Technique, or "Drop Table Technique" utilizes a specific function of the adjusting table in which a thrust is applied to a specific area of the spine. The Thompson technique derives its name from the founder, Dr. Clay Thompson, who fully patented this method in 1957. The main areas that are treated are the pelvic, dorsal and lumbar regions. This method has grown to be loved because it is not painful and uses the least force, because the thrust brings about movement whereas the fast drop will help the joint go through the rest of the required motion.
