Spinal decompression is about treating the root of the problem, without surgery, and once we can start specifically treating whats causing the pain, we can work to get rid of it for good and not just cover it up. Over the long term, that saves time...
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
Dr. Steven Shoshany, a long time NYC based chiropractor, is offering complementary reviews of prospective patients' MRI's and X-rays for the month of June. These evaluations are done at no charge to determine if someone might benefit from non-surgical spinal decompression. Dr. Steven Shoshany was one of the first chiropractors in New York to bring spinal decompression to New Yorkers, and has been delivering unparalleled results ever since, without the use of drugs or surgical intervention. When it comes to employing a drug-free approach, Dr. Shoshany has been at the forefront, showing the power of holistic and multifaceted approach to treating back pain.
Dr. Shoshany is extending this offer to people who may or may not be aware of a non-surgical option for treating chronic low back pain. This pain can be caused by a herniated, or bulging disc, which can sometimes result in not only back pain, but also loss of limb strength, shooting pain, numbness and tingling down the leg. Before someone resorts to undergoing a major surgical procedure to get out of pain, Dr. Shoshany wants them to consider all of their options, which includes chiropractic adjustments, massage, and spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is especially effective at helping reduce back pain.
Spinal decompression works by allowing the body to heal itself by essentially stretching the spine. This causes negative pressure to build and to pull nutrients and herniated nuclear material back in to a protruding intervertebral disc. By alleviating pressure, drainage and blood-flow is increased and healing can begin. When the patient has recovered enough from spinal decompression therapy they can then start physical therapy to help strengthen the body to better aid and protect the spine. "Spinal decompression is about treating the root of the problem, without surgery, and once we can start specifically treating whats causing the pain, we can work to get rid of it for good and not just cover it up. Over the long term, that saves time, and money" (Dr. Shoshany).
The holistic, medical home based method has become very popular lately and has really taken off. The consideration of diet, exercise, posture, lifestyle, when determining a patient's course of treatment was something Dr. Shoshany had been emphasizing over 14 years ago. He has appeared on numerous T.V shows to help popularize and demystify cutting edge treatments like elastic therapeutic taping (kinesio taping) and ART (Active Release Techniques).
For over 14 years, he has been bringing treatment techniques used by professional athletes to recover, heal and perform at a world class level, to every day people. Dr. Shoshany says that, "There are plenty of professional athletes like runners, swimmers, and weightlifters using an IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) therapy, or deep tissue massage to help break down muscle adhesion in their muscles, so that they can heal and perform better. They are also going to a chiropractor who can help ensure optimal spinal alignment and ensure that there is no interference with the central nervous system, or herniated discs. They are talking to their doctors and working with physical therapists. They are under the care of a team of specialists who help them recover fast, and stay pain and injury-free. This is exactly how we treat all of our patients."
Dr. Shoshany has the added benefit of being a full body certified ART provider. In addition to being one of the top chiropractors in Manhattan, he can not only treat disorders, injuries, and injuries related to the spine, but he can also treat soft tissue problems through the use of highly regarded ART. He also likes to combine manual therapy with treatments like Cold Laser Therapy, and ultrasound to help speed up the body's natural healing process.
