Conditions We Treat
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Ever experience a real pain in the butt? This could be piriformis syndrome. The piriformis muscle works to help rotate your hips, and often times is over worked. Because of this it can lead to a deep sharp pain in the butt, and could potentially compress the sciatic nerve as they run very close to each other.
Don’t let this go untreated! At CSCM we effectively determine the exact reason why your experiencing this symptom, and use a multitude of conservative treatments to get you out of pain
Hip Impingement (FAI)
Hip impingement, or Femoacetabular Impingement (FAI), is anterior hip pain which is caused by an imbalance of the hip and low back musculature. This imbalance creates poor joint mechanics between the femur and the pelvis, and leads to a “pinching” sensation in the front of the hip. If left untreated, the impingement can lead to further structural damage of the hip joint, and can make it very difficult to perform your day to day activities.
We see and treat this everyday at CSCM, so come in and get yourself checked out!
Ever experience a “snapping” or “clicking” in the front of your hip? This could be the effects of psoas syndrome. The psoas is a muscle that attaches from the inside of your femur, crosses the front of your pelvis and attaches to the front of your lumbar spine. When there is weakness, or imbalance of your core, this muscle can “snap” over the hip bone.
Although it may not be as painful as some other issues, it is definitely a sign of dysfunction! Come get this assessed and treated before it turns into something more painful.
A hamstring strain is when a injury occurs to the muscle fibers of the hamstring. Depending on how severe the injury, the fibers can be partially torn, or completely torn and ruptured. Often times this injury will occur while running and sprinting, especially if the patient did not properly warm up.
At CSCM we utilize a unique system of integrating multiple experts who specialize in musculo-skeletal medicine to get you better, and keep you feeling good. This system of working together gives you the best care, and allows you moving and living life the way you want
Just a quick email to let you know that my race last weekend was fabulous. I finished in 13:12 with splits of 0:57, 7:05, and 4:45 or thereabouts. The marathon on a difficult course [at least the first 14 miles were very hilly] felt great and I could run a negative split with my fastest miles being 17-24.
My body feels rather tired now but my legs seem much less affected than after previous marathons – must be the strength training/stretching/massage & ART! All in all, what a great experience, especially after not being able to run more than 0.25 miles without pain in April. Thanks again for your help. I will stop by in the next few days to show off my medal.
I had a great experience with Dr. Anselmi and his office. The doctor has tremendous knowledge and is very skilled at what he does. His treatment was key to my recovery from hip surgery. The office is highly efficient and friendly and they handled easily all matters related to insurance. The massage therapists are also highly skilled. I have referred several people to this practice since my experience.
I am so happy to know about this place, and to be treated by its doctors! As an athlete, it’s a blessing to find people who understand your sport and can explain to you what’s going on, and then even fix the problems you’ve been dealing with! I wish I could have been treated by them years ago, it is changing my outlook on my future in my sport! Great people, doing great work! Thank you!
I went in with so much pain – back, neck, shoulders – and left feeling much better – and with a plan for complete recovery – that didn’t include spending the rest of the year going there !!
Bravo — great place !! and Dr. A is amazing!
I’ve been a patient at CSC+M for about 18 months and initially went in for some knee pain. The PT and Chiropractor I worked with very quickly identified what was causing the pain, gave me exercises and resolved that. I highly recommend them (and have to several co-workers) to keep your body working as it should so you can go about your day without aches and pains that can be easily fixed. I only wish I hadn’t waited so long and I’m glad I can go back for maintenance to keep my body working and pain free.
This place is heaven. I had a major back injury after attempting to do a workout boot camp on the beach. The unlevel sand cause all the muscles in my back to tear. I could barely walk for 2 weeks.
The combination of CSCM’s physical therapy, massage therapy and chiropractic therapy brought me back to life. I’m now 100% better and back to working out. I can’t thank everyone there for all of their help.
It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful this facility is. The treatment that I’ve received from Dr. Anselmi, Dr. Nagorski and the medical masseuse team is unprecedented and hard to come by in NYC. I have been in treatment for a longstanding injury and could not be happier with the therapy and level of professionalism that the medical staff has shown me. Thank you Dr. Anselmi & co!!!!
MK Marsden and Peter Crosby I found my way to the Center for Spine Care + Mobility because I was looking for an integrated approach to treat injury-induced headaches. I used to go to an integrated physical therapy/chiropractic care center before I moved to New York from California, so I expected CSC+M to be a similar experience. Working with Dr. Schuman, Jinita, Denise, and Sandra and experiencing their targeted, attentive care is the reason why CSC+M surpassed all my expectations. My experience with CSC+M has not only helped eradicate my headaches but is helping me learn how to control and strengthen my body to correct bad habits and prevent further injuries. Not to mention the facilities are clean and comfortable and the entire staff is friendly and welcoming every time I come in. I would 100% recommend CSC+M to anyone looking for physical therapy or chiropractic work in general – why have just one form of treatment when you can have it all?!
I suffered a lower back injury my first year of college, during this time I have seen many other doctors and one other chiropractor. But I’ve enjoyed my experience the Center for Spine Care and Mobility the most. I’ve only been seeing them for a short time, but I already see an improvement in my core strength and the pain in my lower back that would occasionally flare up is now slowly but surely disappearing. I would recommend CSC+M to anyone who wants to see great results and be treated incomparably by a wonderful staff.
Hi Dr. Anselmi, its been one week since my shoulder surgery and today I talked with my orthopedic surgeon. Everything went great, and a huge reason was all the work you guys did with me in preparation for the surgery. The improvements I saw after working with you, Dr Schumann and Dr Sunny were awesome and exceeded my expectations. Thank you very much.
My therapist in Hawaii referred me to Dr. Anselmi when I tore my quadricep muscle retrieving luggage from the overhead bin on an arriving flight (all my serious injuries happen in the least heroic circumstances).
Over the years, his team has put me back together after so many injuries. Last year I fell in the subway and within a few hours I saw Dr. Anselmi. He arranged for an MRI and created a treatment, with his team. It has been 8 or 9 months since my last visit and the only recurrence was when I stopped my exercises that my therapist (thanks Jinita) prescribed. I have been to every specialist imaginable but the number who DO NOT recommend surgeries comes down to just one: Dr. Anselmi. To date, I cannot imagine what might have become of me without him and his team.
I went to CSC+M for a shoulder injury and was very happy with the results. They have a talented team and multiple treatments available. I was interested in myofacial treatment, which is why I sought out Dr. Anselmi in the first place. The chiropractors, PT and massage therapist all helped to get me healed and on my way. The at-home exercises which I continue to do have kept me painless and functioning. The support staff is helpful and efficient. CSC+M is now at the top of my list.
I cannot speak highly enough about CSC+M. Dr. Amsale & his staff of medical professionals has been amazing in helping me after a terrible foot injury. If you’re considering therapy or chiropractics in Manhattan look no further. Love it here!
