New York, NY (PRWEB) July 30, 2014
Running season is in full swing, and NYC chiropractor Dr Steven Shoshany aims to help runners keep running. Dr Shoshany will use a combination of proven techniques to help athletes continue training. He has recently began implementing an expanded, combined approach consisting of chiropractic, ART (Active Release Techniques), Cold Laser Therapy, Graston technique and kinesiology taping to help runners stay competitive and injury free.
Dr Shoshany often combines chiropractic, and physical therapy to help correct structural misalignments and then correct muscles imbalances and weaknesses. This approach has proven to be very successful in treating various conditions and rehabilitating injuries for long term results. “We treat the skeletal structure, the muscles, ligaments, and the tendons in a combined approach. Now I'm going to try to help accelerate that process by expanding the variety of new techniques to get people active faster while correcting the underlying issue that caused the injury in the first place,” said Dr Steven Shoshany, and he has plenty of evidence to back it up with unparalleled results.
Dr Shoshany has been on the cutting edge of bringing advanced techniques for treating musculoskeletal injuries, often used by high level athletes, to every day people who live and work in New York. Dr Shoshany has often spoken about the extra demand placed on people that live in a city with such a hectic pace, paired with unrelenting work schedules. According to Dr Shoshany, “One of the worst things for our spine is sitting in an office chair for hours at a time. While I understand that the overwhelming majority of people have no choice in the matter, there are plenty of preventative and rehabilitative techniques to help counteract the damage being done by going from sitting in the office to running on asphalt.”
In expanding the course of treatment to using whatever tools fit the job as opposed to using the same techniques to treat everyone, Dr Shoshany was among the first chiropractors in NYC to bring advanced techniques such as spinal decompression and kinesiology taping to the general public’s attention. He’s been using a non-surgical approach to helping people with back, neck, shoulder, hip, and knee pain for years. Dr Shoshany has also been popularizing the use of integrated treatments such as cold laser therapy for a number of years now. Recently he has expanded his protocol for treating distance runners who vary from those who run for general fitness, to marathon competitors.
Dr Shoshany is well versed in implementing protocols that can include the use of several different, but integrated treatments, ranging from the use of therapeutic assistive taping, massage, and physical therapy to an instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization technique like the Graston technique. Dr Shoshany states that, “It really is about having a vast set of tools to draw from, and then using the proper tool for the best long term results and getting there in the quickest way possible. Everyone is different, and while some people might respond well to just chiropractic care, others will benefit from a much more integrated approach that spans medical disciplines.” For more information on how Dr Shoshany specifically treats runners, or any of the treatments offered by Dr Steven Shoshany, or to schedule an appointment call 212 645 8151.
