NYC Chiropractor is granted a Patent for his spinal decompression group. This group is dedicated to Non Surgical treatment of bulging/ Herniated discs, Sciatica, spinal stenosis,and Chronic low back pain. This group has the highest success rate in New York.

(PRWEB) December 17, 2007 -- Manhattan Chiropractor Dr. Steven Shoshany has been recently granted a Certification of registration from the United States of America for a Patent Service Mark for his Spinal decompression group NYCDISC which stands for New York Spinal Decompression specialists. This group was formed over three years ago and is comprised of the best trained and equipped spinal decompression doctors in New York City. To be a service provider the doctor must meet certain criteria and utilize special equipment like the DRX 9000.



The DRX9000™ computerized nonsurgical spinal decompression systems were designed to provide maximum patient benefits with the use of a noninvasive approach that may help minimize health care resources and offer a potentially optimal therapeutic approach to the treatment of LBP (low back pain).
In order to be considered you must have a DRX 9000 table or a comparable table, sorry not DTS tables or modified traction tables allowed. This group was formed out of necessity as spinal decompression grew in its popularity more chiropractors are offering this service and the goal of NYCDISC is to maintain a level of excellence in providing spinal decompression services.

Dr. Steven Shoshany is the founder of this group and has consulted with doctors nationwide on the principles and protocols of spinal decompression. This non surgical procedure has been shown to be 89% effective in resolving disc herniation, sciatica spinal stenosis and disc degeneration.

Spinal decompression
when combined with a targeted Physical therapy and nutritional program can help many patients that have been suffering needlessly. In the United States, low back pain is the second most common reason for physician visits and the third most common indication for surgery. However, a special report published in the December issue of Anesthesiology News highlights exciting research on a medical device that offers patients a non-surgical treatment option in treating chronic low back pain. The device is called the DRX9000™ and is manufactured by Axiom Worldwide of Tampa, FL. The authors of this special report are from the prestigious institutions of Duke University School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. They conclude their special report by stating, "The DRX9000™ computerized nonsurgical spinal decompression systems were designed to provide maximum patient benefits with the use of a noninvasive approach that may help minimize health care resources and offer a potentially optimal therapeutic approach to the treatment of LBP (low back pain)." The report is attached.

New York Chiropractic and Spinal Decompression Center

www.drshoshany.com
I picked up a copy of AM paper the other day this is a daily paper that is given out for free in New York City. I noticed that three different Chiropractors where advertising spinal decompression treatments.
I realize that this is getting more and more popular, but what really struck me was that one of the Chiropractic clinics mentioned that 5 visits where free! This is a bait and switch technique and very wrong to do. I decided to contact the office,not only is this unethical i believe is illegal.
The type of equipment that these clinics use is very inexpensive tables like the Chattanooga traction table called the DTS or the Saunders lumbar decompression system.
My beef is that if you are going to be paying your hard earned money why not go with an expensive high quality table like the DRX 9000.
If a Chiropractor tells you his equipment doesn't matter and all decompression tables do the same thing run out of the office because that is completely false.
In my Manhattan Chiropractic clinic I utilize the DRX 9000 which in my opinion is the best and I utilize the Cox table and the Saunders 3D active trac.
I have been utilizing these treatments for 4 years now and most Manhattan chiropractors are just starting with this technique on inferior equipment and asking you to pay a premium or worse yet over billing your insurance!
If you have insurance like Cigna, Aetna and United my insurance department can verify what portion they will cover.
I have had patients that had only to pay co insurance and the insurance paid for remainder.
If i had a choice I would go with the best equipment, to say they all do the same thing is like saying that all cars drive the same! A BMW drives better then a Yugo.
Some of these tables that are being advertised as decompression are traction tables so buyer beware.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about true spinal decompression
