Dr. Anselmi is a Certified Chiropractor and Expert on Active Release Technique (ART®). He is the Director and Owner of the Center for Spine Care and Mobility in NYC. ART® is a hands-on soft tissue or massage technique which allows the practitioner to feel tight or stuck tissue within a muscle, ligament, or tendon group. Stuck tissue occurs when it is not gliding properly; one muscle on top of the other.
Overuse of muscles can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes 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 feel tingling, numbness and weakness.
As a chiropractor, Dr. Anselmi stretches the tissue in order to gain motion in a particular region. ART® specifically targets the athletic and active community, as their muscles are commonly overused, which can result in scar tissue. The goal of ART® is to restore optimal texture, motion and function to the soft tissue, and release entrapped nerves or blood vessels. One of the many benefits is the patient will respond in a relatively short period of time.
ART® can also be combined well with other methods like massage therapy, physical therapy, Pilates, or pain management to alleviate common conditions like neck or lower back pain.
