Some of our patients even fall asleep during the session because they find treatment to be so relaxing!

What Our Patients are Saying…
I love this place. My family and I have been coming here since it opened. My husband has a bad back and he comes every time he has a problem, they are helpful and they have good hours. My son after a shoulder injury went to a orthopedic and somewhere else for PT, after 1 month with no improvement, we had to come here. They improved and strengthened his shoulder and made it ready for rowing season. I’ve come here with sciatica pain, gone is a couple of months. I’ve come here after a car accident. I’m recently coming for a bum knee and I need to get it in shape in order to hike the Grand Canyon for my 50th Birthday. Caring & effective. They don’t rush you, they take the time to understand where your pain is and they treat it. Love it.*
This is a one stop wellness center. Dr Todd is outstanding. They now offer acupuncture ( I was a skeptic…no longer). Their physical therapist is excellent. As needed you can get an appointment with several pain management specialists. The office staff is friendly and will try their best to make appointments to fit the lives of the busy man or woman. They have the spinal decompression which will offer tremendous relieve to lower back pain, bulging discs, herniated disc, and sciatica…and I am a walking testament to that. I highly recommend this Doctor and the entire staff.*
let me give a HUGE thankful wave of gratitude for Westfield Health and Rehabilitation!! Shana my acupuncturist , after 5 awful years of being in pain with injuries and crazy new symptoms , tons of nerve burns, minor surgeries, useless highly addictive pain meds with terrible side effects, painful PT and all things unsuccessful, acupuncture has improved my life dramatically!
Shana is highly knowledgeable , well trained , excellent at what she does. She also is stellar with her bedside manner, actually everyone there is! To find a health practitioner that actually listens and is genuinely concerned about your quality of life in itself is priceless and makes a HUGE difference. By recommending homeopathic treatments, giving me the information to also add amino acids and other vitamins to my daily regimen is so beneficial. I notice small improvements. While I still have bad days, they haven’t been as debilitating as I have had in the past! So a huge THANK you for changing and improving the quality of my life!*
I am fairly new to the chiropractic world and it has been my absolute pleasure to be able to work with Dr.Todd. They have everything i needed under one roof, saving me two or three trips every visit. If you are looking for a group of caring and knowledgeable individuals that take the time to listen and understand your needs than this could be the practice for you just like it was the perfect fit for me. Just check out the website for yourself! Thank you again Dr.Todd, if I could rate you more than 5 stars, I would.*
AMAZING SERVICE.they make me feel so comfortable and every visit is like a relaxing vacation! Definitely recommend.*
As a chiropractor myself I use dr Carnucci to care for my spine !! His staff is also wonderful and always provides a happy healthy experience. Westfield health is the best!!*
Westfield Health & Rehabilitation is the best multifaceted center I have ever been to! The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. You definitely get the feeling that Dr. Carnucci and his staff personally care about your wellbeing. I highly recommend W H&R for anything from minor aches and pains to post-surgical rehab!*
The healing that Dr. Todd and his staff have done not only for me but my family, my grandchildren ages 10, 9, 9 and 2, my daughters, my brother and mother of 82 is AMAZING.*
Dr. Carnucci has a really great practice. His staff is extremely friendly and took the time to make me feel like they truly cared about me. I grew up in Cranford and whenever I travel back home I make sure to stop to see Dr. Carnucci’s for an adjustment. I highly recommend his practice to anyone who needs chiropractic care or physical therapy.*
Dr. Todd helped me get through my first and only marathon. Not being a runner, he helped me with all of the aches and pains associated with the pounding on the back and joints!*
I have 2 health issues…IBD & an arthritic neck with some bad discs; probably too much time in front of a computer screen, and perhaps age too, although hate to admit that part. The first I cannot control – it comes and goes – but my neck belongs to this unit 100%…a caring, professional, diligent and most importantly, results-oriented group! Starting with my exercise routine, followed by the magic fingers of my physical therapist, and finally my session with Dr. Todd allows me to walk out of there, amazed with full motion in my neck. Tucked away in my bag, I have a new stretch band and a new series of exercises to keep me from locking up again. Highly recommended as this group stays ahead of the curve on the latest pain management technology and practices, keeping me a step ahead of my pain!*
Dr Todd has changed my life. I’m pain free and could not be happier. Friendly and personable office team makes every visit comfortable and efficient. Could not be happier with Westfield!*
They have taken me in as a new patient and explained all the things going on with. New adjusting methods have given me relief I haven’t had in awhile.*
