New York, NY (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
Having recently expanded his Active Release Techniques offerings in Manhattan, Dr. Steven Shoshany was also keeping his Manhattan chiropractic practice at the forefront of diagnostic imaging. Having an X-ray and ultrasound, and fluoroscopic imaging tools available has been great for patients who not only avoid the runaround of having to go to different doctors and imaging centers, but it also allows almost instantaneous look at what may be causing a patient pain or discomfort. Dr. Shoshany has been known for his rapport with his patients, and his ability to provide pain relief through cutting edge patient care and an integrated approach to finding and correcting the root causes of pain and injuries. The PostureRay gives him yet another tool to help not just treat but educate and inform his patients to keep them pain free over the long term.
Usually doctors have to mark an x-ray by hand, this may leave for some room for interpretation between physicians and patients since the lines and other marking are not uniform. And what exactly does a patient see when they are following along with their physician, trying to understand what's being pointed out. This can lead to confusion for the patient and can make the doctor's job harder. The PostureRay not only makes it easier to mark the issues within the bones, joints and tissues of the body but is also able to show what the proper structure should look like. It makes a great difference to a patient to see and understand what is wrong and what the doctor or chiropractor is trying to fix. This digitization and markup makes it easy to point out alignment and postural issues that can lead to pain and discomfort, like: forward head posture, scoliosis, and misalignments in the spine that can cause dysfunction such as compression of the spinal cord.
The PostureRay digitizes the entire markup process but also gives the physician thee ability to make high quality color prints of the marked up x-ray image. Digital copies also make it easier to share the images with the patient and with the patient's doctor or doctors. It uses the latest and most accurate technology available for x-ray digitization. This computerized radiographic mensuration EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system is as robust as it is easy to use. Combined with the digital x-ray already available at Dr. Shoshany's NYC practice it takes just minutes to take a patient's x-ray, review it and mark it up using the PostureRay, and have it available in front of the patient. This is also the only system designed using supported and published research data in peer-reviewed journals like the Journal of Orthopedic Research, European Spine Journal, the Journal of Spinal Disorders and Techniques, and the Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
With this latest acquisition Dr. Steven Shoshany is continuing to expand his exemplary Practice which already offers, Spinal Decompression, Massage, Physical Therapy, Chiropractic, Pain Management, Active Release Techniques, Acupuncture, Cold Laser Therapy, and Kinesio Taping among many other treatment and diagnostic technique.
