Spinal Decompression In New York City, DRX 9000

Spinal Decompression question

Spinal decompression in Manhattan,New York City,NYC for herniated discs, Sciatica, Chronic back pain call (212) 645-8151 or visit

I wanted to posted a couple of questions that I received below and answers.

Is Spinal decompression safe on someone that already had a back surgery?

There defintley is a time and place for back surgeries, when it comes to treating Chronic back pain, Sciatica, and herniated discs.

BUT I believe that all Non-surgical treatment options should be tried first before rushing to get a surgery.

Subject: spinal decompression treatment


I had a discectomy in Feb/09 as I had herniated my L5-S1 disc and it was pushing on the S1 nerve. I had been pain free for two months post recovery period but I have reinjured myself as I am feeling the same pain again radiating down my leg and in my ankle.
As I am not able to persue surgery, I was hoping this may be an effective treatment but is it advisable so soon after surgery?
Spinal decompression treatment should be considered a safe alternative to a second discetomy.

4-5 months after a microdisectomy you should of healed tissues in that area. In our NYC spinal decompression practice we have successfully treated patients that have had failed back surgeries.

I would be sure to seek out a experienced spinal decompression specialist that has at least several years of experience on top notch equipment. I favor the DRX 9000 and I feel it offers the patient the most comfort and safety with a proven track record.

As you go through treatment be sure to gradually increase pull and avoid bending lifting and twisting during the treatment protocol.
I would also consider looking in Cold laser therapy, this has been helpful in reducing swelling and decreasing pain.
Soreness is normal throughout treatment,the pain radiating down the leg should get better when pressure is removed from the nerve root.

Only you and your doctor can decide if this treatment is right for you, but consider spinal decompression treatment if far less invasive then a surgery.
Physical therapy should definitely be integrated into your treatments during and after spinal decompression treatments.

Back Pain treatment NYC, Sciatica NYC

Back Pain treatment NYC, Sciatica NYC
As a Chiropractor in Manhattan I see patients that have back pain, neck pain and Sciatica everyday,it is my job to get them better and most of my patients want to get better in a New York minute.
I was working out yesterday and pulled a muscle in my back, oh boy I thought.

The first thing I did was when I got back to office was ICE my back after a Chiropractic adjustment and had our Physical therapist do some ultrasound and electro-stimulation.
This morning I woke up sore and in some pain, so again I had some Physical therapy done this time I had the Graston technique done on my lower back, I truly believe this is the Best soft tissue treatment available today.
If you have a muscle spasm this stuff works,especially with a lumbar sprain/strain.
The combination of Chiropractic, Physical therapy, Kinesiotaping, graston technique and cold laser is awesome for back pain.

Pain in the lower back is a symptom that can take many forms. It is not a disease, although very rarely lower back pain may be due to a disease. Most of the time, low back pain appears suddenly, and often it is agonizing. But it may also be experienced as a low-key pain. This can be a dull or nagging pain.

Lower back pain is pain affecting the lower part of the back. It is described as:

Lower back pain is acute if it has lasted less than 6 weeks.
Lower back pain is sub-acute if it has lasted 6-12 weeks.
Lower back pain is chronic if it has lasted more than 12 weeks.

Lower back pain is a pain or ache somewhere between the bottom of the ribs, at the back, and the top of the legs. The pain often begins suddenly, and may follow an obvious strain or injury.
Back Pain NYC, Back pain treatment nyc,herniated disc treatment NYC
The lower back pain may travel to or be felt in other parts of your body. It often goes into the buttocks, but may go further down the leg and even into the foot.

The back pain may be worse on bending and is often worse sitting, especially in an easy chair. Sometimes turning over in bed and sitting up is painful. Coughing or sneezing can often make the pain much worse. The muscles of the back may go into painful spasm.

Back pain may be combined with pain into the leg, traveling down below the knee, this is otherwise known as sciatica, because the main nerve to the leg (the sciatic nerve) is being irritated by pressure on it.
Sciatica can be caused by a herniated disc.

Another patient success story with spinal decompression treatment in our Manhattan Herniated disc treatment facility; read below

An Alternative to Surgery

I was diagnosed with a severe disc hernia and additional disc bulge in my lower back. I was not able to walk, sit for more than just short periods of time.
On the basis of my MRI pictures most neurosurgeons and chiropractors that I initially consulted suggested surgery. However, there were some who disagreed and suggested spinal decompression (Spinal decompression) followed by physical therapy (PT). While looking for a practice where I could be treated with SD I started with conventional chiropractic treatment. This helped a little, but I was still not able to walk longer distances or work full time and in full capacity. Eventually I got into contact with Dr Shoshany and started SD under his care. I went through 20 sessions in a time-course of six weeks, PT was added after the fourth Spinal decompression session. Already after two sessions I could feel a noticeable difference in the flexibility of my movements. Two weeks into SD treatment the pain in the lower back decreased considerably fast. By the third week I was able to walk down streets pain-free and enjoy being back at work full time.
I have meanwhile completed my Spinal decompression and am now continuing Physical therapy in order to strengthen my core muscles and ensure that the state of flexibility is at least maintained, if not further increased. I am now able to fulfill my daily duties without much pain, if any.
I highly recommend the great work of the “Living Well Medical” team. Here you are definitely in professional hands. The SD treatment itself is absolutely pain free. The atmosphere at the practice is fantastic, everyone is just superbly friendly and supportive, and your best comfort is guaranteed during your entire stay. All finances are dealt with professionally and a huge effort is put into trying to make the treatment cause the least financial stress.
I am not an expert in the details of how Spinal decompression works for all different back and neck disc problems – I advise you to consult Dr Shoshany and his colleagues if you wanted to learn more about Spinal decompression etc. Yet, from talking to other patients and surgeons I have learned that surgery of herniated discs has not always been a successful remedy. Furthermore, surgery, whether successful or not, will always damage your back tissue to a considerable extent. In fact, I have met patients who told me that damage caused to the spine during surgery is now part of their back pain diagnosis. I definitely acknowledge the usefulness of surgery in specifically severe cases, but I tend to favour the general view that surgery should be left as last resort. There have been cases in which surgery failed to relief the symptoms, some where these have become worse. To my knowledge there is no data that describes the latter outcome after Spinal decompression. In the light of this and my own experience I can only recommend SD therapy for cases of severe disc hernia or bulges. And if you are in the NY area I definitely recommend the “Living Well Medical” team for SD as well as conventional chiropractic and PT treatment. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the team, especially Drs Shoshany, Weissman, Piwnicka and Blank as well as David Vargas for all their help!

I herniated my L4/L5 S1 disc and was in pain for 8 months. I tried everything and nothing worked. I had nasty Sciatica leg and back pain and showed up crooked to his office for my first visit. I wanted to avoid surgery and was willing to do anything before taking that route. I was almost there when I found Dr. Shoshany and his team. He was my last hope and came through big time. After just 7 weeks of going through his spinal decompression program, the pain was gone. I had my life back. It took commitment on my end to go and see him three times a week and focus on my stretches at home....but it was working so I was pumped. I could not even bend down to pick up my children for 7 months and now I am giving piggy back rides again! Dr. Shoshany runs a great practice with very professional and pleasant staff. There are physical therapists that stretched me out every time I was there and guided me through a program to help in the rehab as well. I cannot say enough about this practice....they saved me! of the best things about Dr. Shoshany office is that I NEVER had to wait. I showed up and got seen right away EVERY time. Now that is service. I highly recommend Dr. Shoshany and the care he and his team provided me .
