Dr. Anthony Criscuolo: Active Release and Chiropractic Center
Personal Injury Chiropractic in Wall, NJ: A personal injury can have a multitude of causes. They can range from car accidents, product defects, assault or many other incidents. If you or a loved one are experiencing any pain resulting from a personal injury, it is important that you clearly understand the extent of your injuries so that you can receive the proper long term care.
Get the care needed immediately after an accident to alleviate pain:
Active Release and Chiropractic Center specializes in whiplash treatment for patients involved in a car accident. One in six car accidents can result in case of whiplash. Whiplash is a potentially chronic and painful condition that can benefit from chiropractic care.
Getting the body back on track after a car accident can be tedious and frustrating. Immediately after an accident, due to the release of adrenaline and other stress hormaones, the body may not be able to feel the full extent of some internal injuries with the spine, (i.e. whiplash, tissue damage or a bulging disc) until hours later. It is important to seek treatment right away with Dr. Anthony Criscuolo.
Chiropractic care can help with the following conditions after an accident:
- Neck pain or lower back pain
- Tingling, numbness or pain in the limbs
- Loss of range of motion
- Dizziness, headaches or blurred vision
- Trouble walking
Chiropractic care and other modalities can aid in healing the body faster after an accident by balancing the nervous system:
Because the effects of whiplash are often delayed, receiving a full spinal analysis and posture screening after an accident is extremely important. It serves as the initial step to formulating a treatment program. Whether it is neck pain, soreness or burning soft tissue pain, chiropractic care can aid in returning the body to its pre-accident condition. We will work with you to find an effective course of action.

My occupation at the time kept me on a keyboard for eight hours a day. I began experiencing pain after about 4 months on the job. The pain started in my right wrist. I went to an orthopedic surgeon and he then sent me for an EMG test. The results of that test confirmed a compression of the nerve and the diagnosis was carpal tunnel syndrome. I was then advised to try a couple of months of physical therapy. I tried this but it was of no help. The pain kept getting worse and worse and I was finally forced to start using a brace. At this point I was advised that I could undergo arthroscopic surgery. I was not offered any other solutions. I was operated on and then underwent more physical therapy to regain what I had just lost.
Several months later the pain came back with a vengeance. It got worse faster than before and as an added bonus, I developed it in the left wrist. I was sent to a different doctor who sent me for the EMG test again and an MRI of my wrists. The tests showed no improvement on the right side post surgery, and now I developed nerve compression on the left. At this point the doctor could only offer me more surgery. This time it would be an open cut and there were no guarantees as to it’s success. At this point I figured that surgery did not fix it the first time, then there was no way I was going to do it again. So I lived with the severe pain. I was then contacted by my insurance company, of all people, to see how I was. I informed them that I was once again in great pain only worse than before.
After some research, my agent suggested I try Active Release Techniques®. I was sent to a chiropractor, Dr. Criscuolo, for this treatment. When I first saw him I was wearing a brace on my right hand and close to wearing it on the left. I then began a very intensive treatment that began at 3 times a week. Gradually, as I improved, the visits decreased to 2 times a week, then one, then none.
After the pain was just about gone, he sent me for a repeat MRI and EMG. The results this time showed a marked improvement. I went from a debilitating condition to an occasional annoyance. If I use a mouse or keyboard I might have some discomfort once in a while, but it is something I can most definitely live with considering where I was when I made my first visit.
The only regret I have is that I was not made aware of this technique when my condition first appeared. If I was made aware, I could have avoided surgery. My life would have been filled with much less pain. If you think you have this condition, consult your doctor. Then inquire about Active Release Techniques®. This technique works. I was a very severe case and it literally saved my life.
