It is necessary to differentiate between pain in the lower back and pain, which radiates down the leg. It is common for the layperson to combine them into one category, but to a physician or surgeon, they represent different pathologies.
Low back pain is not due to the pressure on a nerve root, as lower extremity pain is. Most low back pain is muscular or mechanical in nature, caused by overexertion, overuse, strain or sprain of the ligaments and tendons of the low back. It may also be attributed to degeneration of the disk space and facet joints, which hold the spine together. It may be caused additionally by arthritis or stenosis or referred symptoms from organ involvement (bladder, gall bladder, kidney, prostate). One must also rule out organic causes as any form of cancer, especially prostrate CA.
Lower extremity (leg) pain is often seen to radiate, termed "radicular pain." This refers to pain which shoots down the leg, from the low back or buttock. It usually results from pressure on a nerve, which produces a ”pinching” of the nerve, which appears to radiate down the leg in the distribution of the nerve pattern. When the "pinching" of the nerve is mild, one may experience numbness or tingling. As it progresses and becomes more severe, pain may develop. Further progression may present actual damage to the nerve and weakness may also result.
Each nerve in the lumbar spine has a specific pathway. The nerves also carry three distinct characteristic properties. They carry all three of these properties to specific parts of the leg and foot.
One characteristic is known as the sensory distribution property.
What this means is that a nerve will supply the sensory (sensation) property to a certain part of the leg. For example, the S1 root, which is the first sacral root, supplies sensation to the lateral aspect of the foot (little toe).
One characteristic is known as the motor function property.
What this means is that each nerve also supplies a characteristic muscle. The S1 root supplies the calf muscles (gastrocnemius), which allows each of us to stand on our toes.
One characteristic is known as the reflex pattern property.
Several of the nerves in the lumbar spine have a reflex associated with them. The S1 root has the Achilles reflex, which is elicited by tapping on the tendon of the heel.
Neurogenic claudication refers to pain in the lower extremities brought upon by walking. This is often caused by pressure upon the spinal nerves within the spinal canal, usually the result of the disc bulging into the nerves when standing.
Vascular or intermittent claudication is a type of pain, which must be distinguished from the leg, and lower extremity pain from above. Vascular claudication is due to insufficient blood supply to the legs (arterial insufficiency), and is also brought upon by walking.
The difference between the two is that merely standing (without walking) can cause neurogenic claudication but vascular claudication can only be brought on by walking.
It is extremely important to match the symptoms a patient experiences, with all the pertinent history of patient and family, and match it to the symptoms one would expect based on the:
General Physical Examination
Range of Motion Evaluation

Orthopedic Examination
Muscle Strength Testing

Postural Evaluation
X-rays, Labs, Diagnostics
Remember, one of the first obligations, as a physician is to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. If all match, then the treatment can be focused at the cause of the problem. The physician should thoroughly explain to the patient everything about their condition so the patient completely understands. Only them can the patient make the right decisions about their options and take an active role for their own recovery.
With decompression therapy, 86% of patients with herniated discs had relief of pain with recovery. Decompression is truly the most effective procedure for severe and chronic cases of bulging, herniated discs, degeneration, arthritis, stenosis and pressure on nerves.
Decompression in non-surgical, drug free and the safest method for the treatment of severe low back available. It also offers the highest percentage of recovery, with most patients well or better.

NASA was the first to investigate the effects of spinal decompression on vertebral discs.NASA found during the anti-gravity state of the space travel mission, astronauts were relieved of back pain.NASA found disc height was increased during a space mission.
Decompression relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves.

I finally received my new cold laser therapy unit. The results have been outstanding! Patients have been coming in with frozen shoulder syndrome, plantar fasicitis, Sciaitica and carpal tunnel syndrome and have been responding quicker. This is yet another tool to add to my toolbox of adjunctive therapies that compliment the Chiropractic adjustment. Living and working in New York City is very stressful and anytime you can offer a patient a way to manage their stress and reduce pain and discomfort they are greatful.

Spinal disc decompression is a hot topic these days within the chiropractic community, Many colleagues are considering making the investment in purchasing or financing one of these units. I see fantastic results when it comes to herniated disc patients, these are patients that are considering surgery. In New York City people have so many options with there healthcare, many progressed people are now choosing Spinal Disc Decompression therapy before a surgery. Chiropractor care is fantastic for many patients but there are times when it is not enough and this method of treatment is perfect for patients that do not respond to adjustments.

Today I would like to talk a bit about nutrition, I recommend to most of my patients the importance of Omega 3 in there diets, I particulars like to take 1500 mg a day. The omega 3's have a awesome affect on our bodies. Much of a persons body is made of fats and omega 3's are the good fats. For instance the cell membranes in our body is made of fat and if you have to much bad fat the cell membrane is rigid and non-permenable(this is not good) but omega 3 give the cell membrane permeable and elasticity (this is good).

What does this have to do with Back pain, neck pain and overall health you ask?

Well if you have a healthy cell your body is able to transmit vital nutrition back and forth for repair and it heals quicker, If the cell wall is rigid the cell is not as healthy and thus you are not as healthy and do not repair as quick. So if you have a injured disc or carpal tunnel syndrome ask your doctor about Supplementation with essential fats.

Today I want to discuss injuries that happen in the gym. I work out at Equinox fitness which is in Downtown Manhattan. My First gripe is the personal trainers, they are trained in a 2-3 week course and then are trained by other trainers on routines. In my professional experience these trainers think they know everything, when in fact it is beyond there scope to treat injuries and many times put on the hat of a therapist. Exercise is a intergral part of the wellness regime and training with a trainer is helpful for the beginner that needs to learn proper form or for the advanced person that wants to be pushed.
In the past I have trained personal trainers on how to recognize when to refer out to a chiropractor or other specialist and would be interested in training new trainers,but when it comes to these big gyms it is not in the gyms best interest to refer out, unfortunately the client gets shorted.
www.drshoshany.com offers a wealth of information on how not to hurt yourself while exercising if you do get hurt first thing you must do is ICE for 20 minutes. Ice will help prevent the inflammation and then rest and elevelate. A easy acroynm is R.I.C.E which stands for Rest,Ice, compression, and Elevation.
If pain continues Consult with your Chiropractor.

Good Morning New York City! Over the weekend a read a great book, It was called one minute wellness by Dr. Ben Lerner, I posted my review on www.Amazon.com . I felt the book really dealt with wellness and if read teachs the true principles of a healthy lifestyle and a prevention attittude. To many Americans are caught up in the mentallity of taking drugs for everything and and looking to prescription medication for all the answers to there health concerns. True health and healing comes from within us and needs to be allowed to heal. www.drshoshany.com is my website and I am proud to say is visited my thousands of New Yorkers interested in a healthy lifestyle and Chiropractic care. Why suffer with Sciaitica or Migraine headaches? Sometimes all it takes is a simple series of gentle spinal adjustments to the spine to release the tension to the nervous system and the body will heal itself.

Practicing Chiropractic in New York City where every second spent not working is a dollar lost, I learned to understand how valuable health is. Medicine is the leading cause of death in America. A jury awarded a $250 million judgment against the manufacturer of Vioxx. Each day brings another new study of a trusted, hyped drug now shown to be harmful. Medical-related bankruptcies are soaring. We spend more on medicine, yet are sicker than ever! The time is right for a national crusade to get the message out that there is an alternative to the outside-in, allopathic, test-drug-surgery-repeat system that is killing America. The time is right for new wellness leadership to emerge in our country.
Chiropractic is a safe natural approach and is true healthcare ,when combined with proper nutrtion, sleep and a positive mental attitude you are healthier and better off than by following the masses by consuming vast quantities of drugs and eating harmful foods.
Until next time,

Chiropractic care adds life to years and years to your life. That is a saying that i having heard over the years by many of my mentors but is it true? There really hasn't been many studies to prove that and some of the leaders of the proffesion died in there 60's or even 50's. What I think would be a more appropiate saying would "Getting Chiropractic care on a regular basis in conjugunction with proper nutrition, sleep, postive mental attitude and balanced lifestyle greatly increases your chances of living a longer more productive pain free lifestyle."?

September 18 is the anniversy of the discovery of Chiropractic. It all started way back in 1895 when D.D Palmer adjusted Harvey Liliard and had fantastic results in restoring his deafness. D.D thought he discovered the cure for deafness and advertised that around town, Most of the deaf people that came in did not have there deafness restored but had reported that other problems had cleared up. We have come a long way since then, Chiropractic care is no longer considered alernative but now has become mainstream. Every insurance company and every state recognizes Chiropractic to be safe and effective. www.drshoshany.com
For this anniversery we are offereing complimnetary exams all week to all New York City residents.. We are located in the West Village 10014 at 10 Downing street.
