Dr. Justin Culici, DC, ART practiced Chiropractic in an integrated rehabilitation and physical therapy clinic in Navesink, N.J. prior to joining Needham Chiropractic Associates.

 

Dr. Culici attended Sacred Heart University and received his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science.  From there he went on to receive his Doctorate of Chiropractic from the University of Bridgeport where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and Valedictorian.  In addition to his Doctorate of Chiropractic, Dr. Culici is a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S.).  He uses his knowledge in these fields to benefit his patients by creating treatment plans involving manipulative therapies, manual therapies, and exercise.  In addition, Dr. Culici is certified in Graston Technique and Active Release Technique.

 

Active Release Technique (A.R.T.) is a hands on treatment modality that is currently incorporated in the treatment of most elite athletes.  Due to its effectiveness most NFL, MLB and NBA sports teams rely on practitioners trained in this soft tissue technique.

Movement assessment of a patient is used to determine which muscles, ligaments, fascia and tendons have lost their normal elasticity, and therefore have scarred or adhered to other surrounding tissues.  The goal of A.R.T. is to reduce the restricted tissue and return pliability to the injured or overused soft tissues.  This restoration of tissue and joint mobility can result in a decrease in symptoms and a return of motion.

 

Dr. Culici’s clinical interests include conservative methods of pain management and sports medicine.
