Dr. Anthony Criscuolo: Active Release and Chiropractic Center
Cold Laser Therapy in Wall, NJ: Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless, low level laser that stimulates the damaged tissues, enhancing the progress of healing and providing relief from pain and inflammation.
Cold laser treatment can help chronic pain and inflammation due to its capability to penetrate the skin and treat soft tissue injuries. It is a proven technique that is very popular in Europe and has been gaining popularity in the states for those seeking effective pain treatments without medication or surgery.
Some of the common issues that cold laser therapy can treat:
- Sports injuries
- Ligament injury
- Muscle strain
- Regeneration of the nerves
- Joint injuries and pains
- Wound healing
Cold laser therapy promotes healing in the body naturally
When patients come in for sessions, low-level light is applied directly to the problem areas. The tissue then absorbs the light. The body then has a natural reaction to red and near infrared light. This reaction can affect damaged cells that helps promote their regeneration. The laser is not cold, but it is called cold laser therapy because the low levels of light are not enough to heat the body’s tissue.
During the procedure, patients will feel the device against their skin, but it creates no heat, sound, or vibration. It is completely noninvasive and painless. Most of the time, one treatment will take only a few minutes. Patients may see results after their first session, but it depends on their condition. Dr. Criscuolo will work with each patient to formulate the best treatment route to manage their pain.
It is with great pleasure that I write this summary of Dr. Criscuolo’s work with the Princeton Women’s & Men’s Teams on the Active Release Techniques®(ART®).
The Princeton University Women’s and Men’s Teams are elite level, Division I, NCAA All Americans in swimming and diving. Many of the athletes that come to Princeton arrive with shoulder, knee or back problems caused by years of improper technique and neglectful coaching. The foundation of our swimming program has been to make these injuries “go away” by teaching proper technique and rehabilitating the injured area.
Dr. Criscuolo has worked with the Princeton team for two years now. He has seen over a dozen swimmers, male and female, each year. We have had a dramatic increase in recovery since his work with the team. Many athletes have had complete recovery from shoulder tendonitis that other doctors had said would end their careers. We have athletes training in the water without pain that were never able to train before. The visible difference in strength before and after a treatment is incredible.
I support Dr. Criscuolo’s work 110%. It’s proven to work for our athletes and is a great and easy alternative to avoiding unnecessary surgery. I find Dr. Criscuolo a great motivator for athletes distraught about injuries that have plagued them for years. His professional manner and treatment encourage athletes that they can recover over a period of treatments. I thank him for putting athletes back on the deck of our pool whose careers would be over without him.
