Get the Inside Story on Walsh's Secret Weapon, as Seen on the New Reality Show 'Shaq Vs.'

PROVO, Utah, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Volleyball phenom Kerri Walsh is back on the court, and taking on one of the biggest names in sports, with a secret weapon in her arsenal. Kerri wore KT Tape to take on Shaquille O'Neal for the taping of his new reality show "Shaq Vs.", which airs TUESDAY, AUGUST 25 (9:00- 10:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network. Walsh is available for phone interviews to talk about her experiences on the show.


KT Tape enhances athletic performance by preventing and treating common sports injuries, enabling athletes to perform their best. It is the first-ever kinesiology tape to come in pre-cut strips specifically designed for consumer use. It is the only solution that provides pain relief and support before, during, and after activity without restricting motion. KT Tape works by gently lifting the skin off of the muscle, relieving pressure on the nerves and reducing pain without chemicals or medication.

Walsh first discovered kinesiology therapeutic tape as a way to relieve pain and support her shoulder without limiting her range of motion while recovering from rotator cuff surgery. She now uses KT Tape exclusively, and has relied on it to deal with the aches and pains of getting back into competition.

"I've used other kinesiology therapeutic tape to help me stay competitive when I'm injured, but I switched to KT Tape because it's the best tape out there," says Kerri Walsh, two-time Olympic gold medalist.

Today Show- Back pain-Causes and solutions-NYC
Saturday August 15Th. I went over to 30 Rock and was interviewed by Amy Robach for the Today Show!
This was a great segment on Back pain causes and prevention and treatments.
It was four minutes long and once I obtain permission I will post it here.
I felt the interview went well and I was able to discuss that a integrated approach to treat back pain was the most effective.
I was able to talk about spinal misalignment's and muscular imbalances being the primary causes of most mechanical back pain.

Herniated disc with myleopathy responds to DRX 9000 spinal decompression protocol

DRX 9000 NYC?
Herniated disc with myleopathy responds to DRX 9000 spinal decompression protocol.
Several months ago I had a new patient consult, he was complaining of lower back pain and loss of control of his right foot. He had difficulty in planting his foot and suffered from "foot drop".
Foot drop happens when the nerves supplying the muscles of the front of the leg have some pressure place upon them, In most cases it is a nerve root around L5-S1.

The patient had consulted with 2 orthopedic surgeons here in New York City (NYC). He was told he needed a laminectomy. He had tried Physical therapy for months with no improvement, traditional Chiropractic care gave him little comfort.
He did not want a invasive surgery.

In reviewing his medical records his MRI revealed a Disc bulge with superior migrating disc extrusion at L4-L5 without canal stenosis or foraminal narrowing and a Disc bulge with endplate osteophyte asymmetric to the right at L5-S1 causing mild foraminal narrowing. Slightly inferiorly migrating central disc extrusion noted without canal stenosis.
His Nerve conduction velocity and EMG test revealed a severe right L5 radiculopathy involving the anterior ramus division.
We concluded that he would be a good candidate for Non-surgical spinal decompression.
His treatment consisted of Spinal decompression on the DRX 9000, Core stabilization on the SpineForce, Cold laser therapy and Cox flexion distraction.
After 20 sessions in a 6 week period his back pain decreased and his foot drop has improved dramatically.
We conducted a followup NCV and EMG and found that the neuropathy has greatly improved. A post MRI to measure the degree that the disc herniation has been reduced and to measure the increase in the disc height has been ordered and will be updated shortly.
This is a difficult case and will require additional therapy to strengthen stabilizing musculature.
I am glad when I can prevent a patient from a invasive back surgery.
Back surgery should be a last resort when all other non-invasive methods have failed.

Spinal Decompression on a patient with a cervical fusion surgery

Cervical spinal decompression on a patient with a cervical fusion

Is it safe to preform spinal decompression on a patient that had a cervical fusion?

I recently completed a spinal decompression protocol on a patient that had anterior cervical discectomy from C3 to C5 with anterior cervical decompression and fusion from C3 to C5.
The patient had complaints of right bicep weakness even after the surgery.
He was very active and wanted to return to his daily activities of bike riding and horse back riding.
I consulted with his Spine Surgeon and he said it was safe to use spinal decompression on his neck. I often treat patients that have had lumbar discetomy with great success.
The patient tolerated the treatment well and results came quickly, we also utilized Cold laser therapy (Erchonia) on his Brachial plexus and cervical nerve root regions.
I am happy the patient had the ability to regain use of his arm and is back to his regular activities.
