I found a great article on a Consumers Report website, I posted a portion of the article below if you want to read the entire article click here

Readers weigh in on lower-back pain

Readers who have lower-back pain have written us a lot since the Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center Survey results were released in April. We’ve heard from chiropractic fans and chiropractic detractors, readers who have problems with opioid medications and readers who use such narcotics without a problem.

Many writers remarked that our coverage had failed to mention treatments that worked well for them. There was a spinal decompression success story as well as a "compression shirt" success story. There were those who were helped by a therapy called the Feldenkrais Method® and those who swore by another called the Alexander Technique. There was a reader who touted the book "Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection," by John E. Sarno, M.D., and another who touted Esther Gokhale’s "8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back." There was even a reader who advised patience: "Mother Nature's treatment method was just as effective as that provided by the medical professionals, and she didn't charge a fee."

Letters also reminded us that our survey had neglected to ask about a variety of practitioners, including pain psychologists, physiatrists (physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation), pain management doctors, muscular therapists, and osteopaths.

In response to several compelling letters, we added a section on osteopathic medicine to our back-pain package. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is another type of hands-on care (for subscribers), a category of treatment that respondents with lower-back pain ranked as very helpful in our survey. Osteopaths use OMT to complement conventional treatment by moving muscles and joints with techniques such as stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance. Indeed, one of our experts, James N. Weinstein, D.O. ,M.S, director of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, was trained as an osteopath.

The wide variety of lower-back pain treatment options is the reason we asked more than 14,000 respondents to tell us what worked for them, including medications, physical treatments, products, and lifestyle changes. But we recognize that there are many more and, as always, appreciate hearing from you.

New York City Chiropractor Announces New State-Of-The-Art Facility, Website

New York City Chiropractor Announces New State-Of-The-Art Facility, Website

Dr. Steven Shoshany of New York City is proud to announce that he has recently launched his new website, www.LivingwellNewYork.com, to coincide with an exciting new direction he is taking with his office and an expansion of the practice.

New York (PRWEB) June 23, 2009 -- Dr. Steven Shoshany D.C has been practicing Chiropractic care in New York City for more than 13 years in his SOHO office. He recently launched his new website, www.LivingwellNewYork.com, to coincide with the expansion of the practice and his efforts to pursue an exciting new direction.

back pain nyc

Dr. Shoshany's new office combines the disciplines of pain management, physical therapy, Chiropractic care, and nonsurgical spinal decompression. The new multi-disciplinary facility is a one-stop shop for patients seeking not only relief from pain but a long-term solution to their problem. What makes the facility unique is it was one of the first to offer non-surgical spinal decompression in NYC and Dr. Steven Shoshany is the only doctor in the US to hold a patent for his proprietary spinal decompression protocols. He is one of the few chiropractors using state-of-the-art equipment like SpineForce and the DRX 9000.

This past month also marked the 1000th patient successfully treated by Dr. Shoshany with the DRX 9000 spinal decompression system.

The DRX 9000 non-surgical spinal decompression creates a negative pressure inside the disc, which draws in bulging or herniated disc material, like suction. This stimulates the body to undergo a process known as "fibroblast activity," producing fresh new tissues and cells. These new cells attach themselves to the torn fibers of the disc that causes it contents to bulge. In essence, it's like a bone healing. When complete, the bone is stronger than before. It is more of a cure than a temporary remedy.

About Living Well Medical:
Living Well Medical provides combined services of the medical, physical therapy, and chiropractic industries. Located at 632 Broadway, New York, NY, the hybrid facility specializes in sports medicine, acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic care, and herniated disc treatment, utilizing non-surgical spinal decompression.

New York City Chiropractor- NYC Herniated disc treatment

New York City Chiropractor
I have been getting so many questions from people that suffer with chronic back pain from all over the world.

One of the most common questions are:

What is a herniated disc?

What is Sciatica?

What is the best way to treat a herniated disc without surgery?

I have posted these answers on my NYC Chiropractic website
please visit NYC Chiropractor to learn more

A recent patient testimonial posted below:

Dr.Steven Shoshany Chiropractor NYC 632 Broadway suite 303, New York, NY 10012

I have a new back!!!

Dr. Shoshany is a spinal health care leader, an expert in spinal decompression, and a healer of back pain. He has the winning team, the high-tech facilities, and the proven approach. (Read this review and others.)

By a new back, I mean one that has stability, flexibility, adjusts itself naturally, and free of the tricky discs, the gripping spasms & debilitating pain. Those that suffer with back disorders, know that this is pretty amazing testimony.

Check it out:

(Very much like the everyman with lower back ailments)
• MRI diagnosed bulging & herniated L4 & L5 discs for well over two decades (in its simplest terms).
• Crippling spasms; lasting & debilitating pain when inflamed.
• A sneeze could put me in bed for days, rehabilitating for weeks.
• All my spare time was focused on preventing the next back breakdown & long rehabilitation.
• Even swimming became painful!
• My back pain sucked the life out of me.

(…and I’ve seen a lot, what about you?)
• Pain Management Dr.’s prescribed rest, anti-inflammatory meds., and other pain management approaches like physical therapy.
• Past Physical Therapist recommended exercise, and oddly not with a lot of focus on how I should execute the exercise.
• The Orthopedic Surgeon observed that surgery provided no guarantee, along with a lot of risk—he said I should try everything else first.
• Chiropractic care in general has worked best for me over the long run, but soon enough I’d be stuck in bed with back spasms, and a lot of pain, and starting from zero over & over again.

(…I’m just another ordinary guy, like many more I know)
• I’m middle-aged, 5’11’, and 220 (thanks to my back); but normally, I weigh 200, not so lite.
• Otherwise I’m very active: Swimming, Biking, Weight Training, Landscaping, Entertaining Family & Friends are activities I enjoy.
• I take care of myself

(Awesome Results)
• While perhaps I’ve gained only millimeters in additional disc space, it feels like inches to be free from the non-stop nagging of back pain.
• So easy, 20 consecutive treatments
• I scheduled my therapy three times a week. I was serious, and I got serious results.
• While it’s not inexpensive, for a new back, revived energy, and no back pain—it’s great value!
• Unlike surgery, the expense is not astronomical, it’s non-invasive, there’s no recovery time, nor the possible complications of surgery.
• It’s straight forward, 25 minutes, or longer if you chose to take on other core strengthening therapies.
• Dr. Shoshany, Spinal Decompression, DRX 9000 summed up in two words: Very Effective! In one word: Incredible!

Dr. Shoshany (Dr. Sho) and his team of wellness professionals took my case as described above to create a healing program of core strengthening, chiropractic adjustment, stretching, and spinal decompression. This is a high-tech operation with a very caring and knowledgeable team of experts that all pull together to cause wellness in their patients

For my part, I have taken their direction & the spinal decompression opportunity very seriously. Anyone with back issues understands the importance of a strong relationship with your back; and I was serious about creating one and I applied myself to reinforce the opportunity. I have put into practice all that Dr. Shoshany and his team have taught me (a special thanks to David Vargas, Trainer). My core muscles have strengthened significantly, and engaging my core strength in the simple routines of life has become second nature. The results have proven the work I was willing to take on to make the most of spinal decompression.

I have a new back: if you’re suffering with serious back issues, don’t delay. Make an appointment to see Dr. Shoshany. I’m back in action with a spinal column to support it. It’s truly incredible.

Disc Herniation L5-S1 treatment on the DRX 9000 in Manhattan NYC

The picture above is of a Lumbar Herniated disc at L5 S1.
This patient came in doubled over in pain and walking with a cane he looked like a 90 year old man at 35.
What is amazing is that he is on Percoset,and muscle relaxers and already had three epidurals.
What's next for this patient?
What is the best treatment for a herniated disc?
Well, he was told that he could have a back surgery or learn to live with this pain.
he decided to look for alternative treatments,he found New York Disc decompression specialists
He emailed me his MRI results and we discussed possible options over the phone and he came in for treatment the next day.

He decided to start Non-surgical spinal decompression on the DRX 9000 in our NYC herniated disc treatment office
Today marks his 5th visit on the DRX 9000.
I am impressed with his progress so far. When he first came in every position hurt, he could not sit,stand or even lay down without shooting,burning pain into his leg.
Everyone in the waiting room felt bad for this guy!
Today he is moving allot easier and can actually walk back to the treatment room without being assisted.
Getting around in New York City is difficult enough but to have to navigate the streets and subways with a cane and a massive limp makes it worse.
I am glad he choose a non surgical approach to his problems.
This treatment works and in my opinion there is no better treatment for herniated discs then non-surgical spinal decompression.
If you live or work in Manhattan NYC and suffer with Chronic back pain consider this treatment before getting a invasive surgery.
I will update this patients status and update a post MRI to show the reduction of the disc herniation.

What is the Best Way to Heal a Herniated Disc?

What is the Best Way to Heal a Herniated Disc?

NYC Board Certified Chiropractor and Herniated Disc Doctor-Dr. Steven Shoshany

When you cut your finger it heals. When you sprain your ankle it heals. Healing is one of the defining characteristics of living tissue - like growth and reproduction.

Herniated discs can heal too. But like a finger or an ankle if you don't create the proper environment for the healing process, the healing will be incomplete and may leave you with an ongoing problem. The reason is because the disc has a poor blood supply.

So what conditions can you create that will allow for the herniated disc to heal itself?

1. You can feed your body a non-inflammatory diet to speed up the processing of the pain-producing chemicals. A non-inflammatory diet is low in oils and simple carbohydrates but provides three portions of low-fat protein per day.

2. You can eat vitamin- and mineral-rich foods and supplements that will give the disc's remaining healthy cells the energy, tools and building blocks they need to rebuild strong disc material. If you have other chronic health problems you may require a personalized dietary plan to bring your body back to more normal function.

3. Once the body has the proper vitamins, minerals and fuel you can help get the nutrition into the disc. On its' own this process takes hundreds of days. But by decompressing the disc using the DRX-9000, our non-surgical disc decompression machine, we give the disc the best chance to build new fibers and to re-hydrate with water. This is what allows the right amount of pressure to be maintained inside the disc and the disc can heal quicker.

4. Then, by using the right combination of posture re-training exercises you can restore mobility to the bones of the spine, restore the normal curve in the lower back, and then align the upper body on top of the lower part. This will bring the body back into alignment on top of the pelvis so any abnormally concentrated force is reduced on the damaged disc. If you keep the pressure off long enough for the ligaments to heal, the muscles to strengthen and the nerve system to develop new programming then you can build enough strength to avoid re-injury.We utilize cutting edge technology to accomplish this like the SpineForce and Powerplate.

If your goal is to heal the disc then evaluate your options with regard to these requirements.

Does the treatment, therapy or procedure you are considering help the disc heal? If so, then it is at least headed in the right direction and has a good chance at not just relieving the pain but restoring more normal function and preventing the same thing from recurring in the future.

Or does it destroy even more tissue leaving you with the same factors that caused the problem in the first place? Surgery is not always the best option according to a recent study by the American Pain Society. Read study
