Colleen Smith R.N.

Colleen’s passion is simple: helping kids live the healthiest and happiest lives possible. This was her driving force as she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from The College of New Jersey and went on to begin her dream work as a Registered Nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Childrens’ Healthcare of Atlanta. Here she helped countless children survive and thrive in a life they may not have otherwise had.

Colleen knows better than any the power and need for chiropractic care in unlocking the unlimited healing potential in all people, from adults to the smallest of babies who deserve every opportunity to flourish with their nervous systems functioning at 100%.

Anthony Pellegrino D.C.

Dr. Anthony Pellegrino is a Monmouth County native whose heart for service began at an early age. While growing up in Shrewsbury, he served as an EMT on the First Aid Squad and an Eagle Scout. After becoming a chiropractic patient and learning how chiropractic helps the body function optimally, facilitating healing from the inside out, he was hooked. Under chiropractic care, Dr. Pellegrino experienced relief from years of gastrointestinal symptoms and dysfunction which no prescription medication had ever helped. Dr. Pellegrino questioned why he had never known about the amazing power of chiropractic and decided he needed to educate and serve his community so they too could function better and live healthier lives. Dr. Pellegrino received his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, GA during which time he helped to build one of the largest chiropractic practices in the southeast. He also earned his “Advanced Proficient” certification in Torque Release Technique, published research on the effects of chiropractic and autism, and pursued his post-doctoral diplomate in Pediatrics from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

Dr. Anthony Pellegrino is committed to always delivering the highest quality of neurologically-based chiropractic care possible while expanding the science and research base of chiropractic so that others may follow suite. With Absolute Chiropractic as a vessel, he looks forward to working with you and your family to help you achieve your absolute potential.
