Dr. Christopher Anselmi is a board certified chiropractor at Hospital for Special Surgery's Integrative Care Center located on Madison Avenue between 59th and 60th Streets. Dr. Anselmi specializes in the non-surgical treatment of the spine, joints and muscles. Patients suffering from lower back or neck pain as well as sports related injuries involving the shoulders, hips and knees may benefit from Dr. Anselmi’s effective and straight-forward treatment approach.
Having joined Hospital for Special Surgery’s Integrative Care Center in 2003, Dr. Anselmi has always strived to improve a patient’s overall musculoskeletal health so that they may enjoy life more comfortably. His passion and dedication to the field of musculoskeletal care has led Dr. Anselmi to become Master Certified in Active Release Technique® (ART®). ART® is a patented soft tissue movement and stretching technique that helps treat problems of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Overuse of the muscles can cause the body to produce tough and dense scar tissue. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker. In addition, tension on tendons may cause tendonitis and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength and pain. If a nerve is trapped, you may also experience numbness, tingling and weakness. The goal of ART® is to restore the optimal texture, motion and function to these soft tissues so to release entrapped nerves or blood vessels.
As part of Hospital for Special Surgery, Dr. Anselmi interacts with leaders in the field of musculoskeletal care in order to provide patients with the best possible care.
