New York, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Dr. Steven Shoshany, a member of the American Chiropractic Association and recognized as one of New York City’s top chiropractors, was invited by Dr. Mehmet Oz, head of New York Presbyterian Hospital’s Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program and Vice-Chair and Professor of Surgery at Columbia University, to appear in a special segment about chiropractic on his Emmy award-winning NBC show, The Dr. Oz Show. In the segment, Dr. Shoshany and Dr. Oz’s dialogue centered on important topics such as the significant advantages of chiropractic for the treatment of chronic back pain and as a safe and effective alternative to surgery. An acclaimed surgeon himself, Dr. Oz placed emphasis on the higher risks associated with surgical treatment for back pain compared to chiropractic, as well as the dangers of relying on prescription drugs for pain management, noting that pills and epidurals are prescribed with alarming frequency, and urged viewers with pain issues to consider chiropractic treatment before resorting to expensive and risky surgical procedures or numbing the pain with potentially hazardous medication.
Dr. Shoshany and Dr. Oz also discussed dealing with inaccurate negative perceptions about the chiropractic profession and closed the segment with an on-camera adjustment by Dr. Shoshany on a patient suffering from back pain.
