“Chiropractors fix spinal alignment to take pressure off discs, muscles, nerves and joints to relieve low back, neck pain and a variety of other discomforts including headaches,” said Antonelli when describing general chiropractic services.

“I take pride in telling a person that I can help them,” Antonelli said.  He said he and Dr. Halter will often refer a patient to an orthopedist, pain management provider, or neurologist or for an MRI.  “I have long-standing relationships with other providers, so I will refer to them to get the best possible care for a patient.  I like to give a patient choices and options.”

Antonelli, a married father of three daughters, went to Seton Hall University on an academic scholarship to play Division 1 baseball.  “My love of athletics drives a lot of what I do,” he said.

Both Antonelli and Halter attended New York University Chiropractic College.  “We use a variety of techniques to help a patient,” said Antonelli, “including light touch chiropractic manipulation, activator treatments, flexion/distraction therapy and trigger point therapy.”

“We attribute our long-standing relationship with our patients to the ongoing successful treatment of numerous musculoskeletal conditions,” said Antonelli.  “We believe that our honesty, integrity, and commitment to the community sets us apart.”
