If treatments for Active Release are now being offered at a world class orthopedic hospital like the HSS, don’t you think possibly it’s something you can benefit from?

ART® at the HSS Integrative Care Center
Dr. Christopher Anselmi, a board certified chiropractor at Hospital for Special Surgery’s Integrative Care Center, is Master Certified in Active Release Technique® (ART®).
What makes Active Release Technique® (ART®) different from other techniques
The difference between ART® and other techniques is that during an ART® treatment, the patient actively moves the affected structure (muscle or ligament) while the practitioner presses or maintains contact on the injured area. This allows the practitioner to feel the structure as it moves under their contact, and to effectively treat those restricted muscles, tendons, or ligaments.
Who might benefit from ART®
Over 500 specific moves make up the treatment protocols used in ART®, allowing the practitioner to tailor treatment to the unique needs of each patient.(1) Individuals who may benefit from ART® include:
— Members of the athletic community, both recreational and professional.
— Chronic pain patients with symptoms mimicking an overuse syndrome.
— Anyone who has not been able to find relief through conventional therapies.
