Non-surgical Relief for back pain and herniated discs in NYC
One of the most common health complaints among Americans is back pain. Almost everyone experiences back pain at some point in their lives. Chronic back pain can be caused by a number of factors such as herniated discs, back injury, sports injuries, prolonged sitting, and more. The repercussions of back pain can be debilitating and interfere with daily life, work, and normal body functioning. An accurate diagnosis is key to discovering the root cause of pain so that the best course of treatment can be prescribed.
Dr. Steven Shoshany, NYC spinal specialist and top chiropractor, has over 15 years of experience in diagnosing and successfully treating patients who suffer from back pain.
At Dr. Shoshany’s state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility in Noho, Manhattan, the NYC Chiropractic Center for Spinal Decompression, patients can enjoy the benefits of being treated by a chiropractor, a physical therapist, a massage therapist, acupuncturist and a pain management specialist under one roof.

Dr. Steven Shoshany works alongside a team of expert doctors that specializes in safe, non-surgical therapies for long-term relief of back pain, focusing on repairing all affected structures – spine, soft tissue, and nerves. Each patient receives a personalized diagnosis and treatment plan designed to restore mobility, flexibility, and function while decreasing pain and discomfort. Because the back pain therapies are non-surgical, patients require no additional downtime for recovery and can return to their normal activities soon after beginning treatment.
Understanding Back Pain
Back pain can occur due to a number of factors; some of the most common include sports injuries, overuse, bone disorders, advanced age, sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, obesity, pregnancy, and more. The wear-and-tear of daily life can also negatively affect the spine and cause back pain. Even if the pain is localized in one area of the back, the entire spine is affected, and the negative effects can extend to other areas of the body if left untreated.
The spinal imbalance caused by any of the above-mentioned factors can cause dysfunction in the joints, soft tissue, and nerves all along the spine. When this happens, there is pain and discomfort which can become severe if not addressed promptly. The longer the condition is allowed to progress, the worse the effects on the body. Serious back pain can develop into numbness, sharp pains, and inability to move the limbs.
How Back Pain Can Be Corrected
Dr. Shoshany and his team use a patient-centered comprehensive approach that targets pain at the source and treats its cause, not just the ensuing symptoms. Once the cause of pain is addressed through a personalized treatment plan, patients experience progressive relief that is long-lasting, as well as overall better health and future injury prevention.
