Other Conditions We Have Helped
About 5 months ago, I visited a business expo at the Factory in Wake Forest. It was here that I met Dr. Criscuola. Dr. Criscuola mentioned the fact that spinal health could be directly related to my restless legs. After giving thoughtful consideration to an alternative relief of my symptoms, I decided to give chiropractic services a try. Dr. Criscuola did a full evaluation and found spinal misalignments that directly related to the nervous systems control of my legs. After 1 month of services, my husband and I noticed that my symptoms were dramatically decreased. Two months later, I was symptom free. I am continuing my adjustments to maintain a healthy alignment and peaceful nights of sleep for my husband and I.
"I played great this weekend. My back was a little sore Friday but fine on Sat. and Sun. I won all 4 matches and our team ended up winning the tournament by one point. I would have never been able to play without you. Thanks!"
Lower Back Pain
I have been experiencing low back pain for 8 yrs and the last 3yrs have been intense. It hurt to sneeze, cough, sit and stand, 24 hrs a day! I had no idea what to expect at the chiropractor, but MY MD REFERRED ME! (Carolina Sports Medicine and Family Practice) I had already tried physical therapy combined with these ESI shots (back shots), it would work for a few months and come back again until it did not work at all. Once I started getting adjusted by Dr. Criscuola at Heritage Chiropractic, the pain started to reduce. I used to take 3-5 aspirin/Advil a day, and have not taken one since I started chiropractic care. Almost 100% pain free in 2 months! Amazing. True believer. I will continue to use for life. This has changed my life both physically and financially. Those two back shots I used to get cost twice as much as a whole year of chiropractic care! Dr. Joe is very personable. His care feels very individualized and his encouragement and positive attitude is what keeps me coming back.
Neck Pain with Numbness and Tingling
I have been experiencing this for over six months until I saw Dr. Criscuola. I was never comfortable and the numbness was causing anxiety. As a surgeon, I can not afford to have nerve problems in my hand. I had been a sceptic for my whole life until I needed help, desperation made me try it. I now work with Dr. Joe who always seems to figure out what I need to have done. It may be my neck one day and my low back another. He picks it up right away and fixes it. I am always amazed because you never know how bad you feel until you feel good. I have found a chiropractor that I respect and can confidently refer my patients to if needed. I have also found a friend in Dr. Joe, which is a great side benefit. I was referred to this office by my wife who had been getting adjusted at the office for a few months before I started. I always feel welcomed, never rushed and they are very flexible with the office hours.

Chronic Sinus Issues
I began chiropractic care to relieve my sinus pressure that was causing headaches and neck pain that I have had since I was 11yrs old. At its worst I was experiencing migraines that lasted up to a week and I could not function. I had no time to relax or enjoy life. My previous experience with chiropractic was after a car accident and it helped me, but I had no idea it could help with headaches and sinus issues. Since I began at Heritage Chiropractic Wellness Center in Wake Forest, NC, I have had fewer and fewer headaches as time had gone by. They went from daily to weekly within the first month, I almost stopped going, but Dr. Criscuola explained that we could do better. I now rarely have headaches. I am able to enjoy life again! I am more productive at work and have a social life too. I found Dr. Criscuola on the web, by the way he has a great site.
I was very impressed with my visit today! Everyone our front was welcoming and very friendly-that put me at ease. Dr. Joe was a sweetheart and I look forward to working with him. Thank you. See you Tuesday!
Just after 1 visit I felt so much better which has lasted throughout the day. I'm looking forward to continued visits and being pain free and get my energy back.
Great Chiropractor in Wake Forest
Dr. Joe was very knowledgeable and professional. I was a little uncertain about the methods and benefits of chiropractic treatment, but he quickly dispelled these and went to work, which was very much id-depth and comprehensive. I appreciate the natural, almost holistic approach to care and definitely want to see my treatment to completion. Highly recommended.
Caring and Quality Service
Dr. Joe takes time to understand what's bothering me and uses multiple strategies to facilitate pain relief and achieve the highest level of wellness possible. He is more than a doctor. He's a caring friend.
Dr. Joe knows his stuff! I can be in agony and when I leave his office, I'm pain free or close to it. He is interested in all aspects of his patients health and well being.
very attentative service
I was treated with respect and my questions were answered with details
Knowledgeble, friendly and welcoming..
Recently relocated to this area and I have been seeing a Chiropractor for the last 4 months and my back and hip pain was getting progressivly worse. Went to see Dr. Joe today for the first time and my pain is about 80% gone. I few more visits and should be back to my old self. PAIN FREE. THANK YOU>>>>
My experience today was very informative and Dr. Joe explained to me the work he would be doing on me that will help me be a healthier person. I am looking forward to more treatments so that my body will feel better and become healthier. The office had a very welcoming atmosphere.
I am coming back, I think that says it all.
I can't wait to go again! Made me aware of things going on with my spine that I didn't know.
Very high quality service. We will definitely bring our whole family here!
My daughter received a very high quality evaluation on our first. Visit . I would feel very comfortable bringing the whole family here!
Professional and Friendly
First time ever going to a chiropractor. I was nervous but his secretary made me feel at ease and was super friendly. Dr Joe walked me through the procedure and was very nice and he listens to your pains and concerns. Glad he was recommend and can't wait to start my treatment with him.
Comfortable Family Environment
I was welcomed for a last minute consultation and adjustment at the end of a work day, which was a huge relief since I was hurting and did not want to wait another day for an adjustment. Dr. Joe and his staff took time with me to check my insurance coverage and chiropractic benefits, listened to my musculoskeletal history and my chief complaints and did not make me feel rushed at all. By the time I left, not only did I feel better, but I felt like part of the Heritage Chiropractic Family. I have already recommended Dr. Joe to my daughter for she and my grandson. I look forward to future visits and getting my health back in alignment!
Every aspect of our visit was top notch. Dr Joe's adjustments are amazing, gentle and yet very effective. From the first phone interaction, the welcome, the space (design and function) and Dr Joe's initial interview, all aspects have been excellent and first rate. I highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking better health.

Dr. Joe is amazing!!!! He makes all the tension and pain go away. With three children and a full-time job, i get stress and muscle tension. But Dr. Joe always gets me back in line. My family is so thankful for Dr. Joe, God bless u and family always. Angela😀
Joe was welcoming from the time I walked in. I was in an accident the day before with neck and back pain and Joe took plenty of time explaining the procedures and reasons behind them. I've only been for 1 adjustment but I will definitely be going back.
Felt great after seeing Dr. Joe
I was out of shape and feeling bad before coming in and was having a hard time getting work done.. About 15 Minutes after my visit I noticed my energy increase and felt much better overall... Thanks Dr. Joe
I didn't know much about chiropractic care prior to coming. I started because I was desperate, searching for any help with my daughters ear infections and sleepless nights. We have slept so much better since my daughter started receiving adjustments and she hasn't had an ear infection yet! Dr Joe has taken so much time explaining chiropractic care and how it affects your whole body. He is so patient, and thorough. Jill is awesome too! Always so pleasant and great with my kids!! I am so thankful we have found Dr. Joe and looking forward to getting our family healthy and happy!
Professional and friendly
Dr. Joe and wife are a dynamic duo! Service was precise and personable. Dr. Joe is very thorough and explains your back/spine issues clearly. I honestly felt some relief after my very first adjustment.
Dr. Joe Doesn't Mess Around
This was my first appointment with Dr. Joe. We talked a bit at first then we went to the x-rays to get a good look at what was bothering me. Then it was to the table. "Crunch" a couple times and we were on our way to my feeling better. Now, several hours later, I am actually feeling much better. This is my kind of doc.
Great service & so friendly!
I can honestly say that I've never felt more comfortable or welcome anywhere in my life. Dr. Joe is the best and I can discuss anything with him. I totally trust his opinions and feel that he has my best interest at heart. Going to Heritage Chiropractic Wellness Center was one the best decisions that I have ever made.
My experience with Heritage Chiropractic Wellness Center was great. Dr Joe does a wonderful job of explaining everything that is going to happen and how the process works, then he gives you time to express your feelings and concerns. He was very informative and I would highly recommend his practice to everyone. Thanks Dr Joe!!!
Very efficient and caring.
Pleasant atmosphere, clean, easy to get to. Dr. Joe is extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Jill was helpful and courteous. Even though I went there because I was in pain, it was a pleasant experience. Thank you.
My daughter said was great, she was so happy!!!
The care I've received at Heritage Chiropractic Wellness Center has surpassed all of my expectations. Dr. Joe and Jill are two in a million; they're warm, welcoming, highly organized and down-to-earth. The incessant pain that I've been experiencing for years has already begun to dissipate in just ONE week! To say that I'm thrilled with my ongoing results is an understatement!
A path to wellness
I am a new patient and after only a few visits I feel confident that I am on a path to wellness. Having lived in 4 different cities the past three years I have experienced various methods of chiropractic care, Heritage Chiropractic and Wellness Center is a very welcome addition to my family's new Wake Forest home.
I feel better each time I visit. I was about to give up on myself.
So nice and caring.
I felt like I mattered. I feel a little better each time I go. I feel encouraged and my pain is less. Smiles and thumbs up.
I had been going in due to back problems, today was my first day for sinus problems and it was nice to go ahead and get my adjustment for sinus without taking so much time to explain my change of events I really enjoy going and feel so welcome to the office
Excellent patient care
I enjoy going to your office for chiropractic care. I am treated with respect and kindness. I recommend Dr. Joe for all your chiropractic needs. His office staff is friendly and warm.
Dr. Joe encompasses everything that I look for in a doctor for my family. He has gotten to know my children and I as individuals, listens and provides sound knowledgable advice, and provides excellent chiropractic treatment. His concern for our holistic well-being goes above and beyond, and I highly recommend Heritage Chiropractic Wellness Center. Jill is also fab at the front desk!
Feeling great again!
Dr. Joe is the best! I struggled with daily headaches since I was 16. I was on all kinds of migraine medicines, took Advil multiple times a day, and had massages just to deal with the pain. After being under Dr. Joe's care for just a week the headaches, neck pain, and back pain were gone and I feel 100 times better. He knows what he's doing and is very knowledgeable. He cares about his patients and shows it in his concern for our daily well being. If you are on the fence and do not know about going to Dr. Joe, just do yourself a favor and make the appointment. You will be so glad you did!
I've been going to Dr. Joe for about two years now for back problems. I have nothing to say but praises for he and Jill. Jill is Dr. Joe's wife and is the Receptionist for his practice. Jill has a dynamic personality and is always willing to schedule appointments to fit the individual's needs. I would say the team work of Dr. Joe and Jill working closely together is one of the aspects of making the business successful. Dr. Joe works with me on nutrition issues as well as the adjustments Every where I go I sing his praises and the feedback, from those who know him, every one says the same thing that he is an excellent Chiropractor and has a very high standard of practice. Of all the doctors that I go to Dr. Joe is in the top 4. I definitely would recommend Dr. Joe to anyone that I meet. Pat H.
