One of the most common health complaints among Americans is back pain, which 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. Integrated treatment is essential for eliminating the underlying cause of back pain for long term results.

Cervical Disc Herniation

Cervical disc herniation, which often manifests in the form of arm pain, is a common occurrence in patients of all ages, but mostly over the age of 30 and can be due to a number of causes. In all instances, cervical disc herniation occurs when a nerve in the cervical (neck area) spine is impinged by a herniated disc.

Working at desk all day, or overuse of cellphones are also major contributors to a condition known as Forward Head Posture (FHP) which can lead to long term muscular imbalances in the neck and the bulging and herniation of cervical intervertebral discs.

Hip Pain

The hip joint allows for repetitive motion and seamless movement of its surrounding structures and is cushioned by cartilage that protects the joint from the effects of friction.  Factors such as advanced age, injury, some health conditions, joint stress due to overuse, and even regular wear-and-tear of the joint can cause the protective cartilage to deteriorate and allow painful bone friction to occur.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition that occurs as a result of an impinged nerve in the wrist area.  The carpal tunnel is a narrow cavity in the wrist, which is meant to safeguard the median nerve, the main nerve that regulates hand function as well as the tendons that control hand and finger movement.  When the carpal tunnel is compressed or swollen, it will place extra pressure on the nerve, resulting in hand numbness, tingling, weakness, loss of hand coordination, and pain that can extend along the arm – symptoms known as carpal tunnel syndrome.  Advanced cases of carpal tunnel syndrome may present permanent tissue deterioration of the affected muscles and tendons.

Formally known as lumbar radiculopathy,  Sciatica is a pain in the lower back, buttocks, hips, or adjacent anatomical structures, frequently attributable to spinal dysfunction. Sciatica is often described as shooting pain that travels down the back and in to the legs. When at its most severe, or left untreated sciatica can cause a number of alarming issues like loss of motor function, numbness, and even incontinence.

The staff has been treating rotator-cuff strains, frozen shoulder, SLAP tears, trapezius muscle strains, as well as muscular pulls and tears utilizing techniques such as Kinesio taping and the Graston Technique.

Neck Pain

After taking X-rays and examining the patient’s spinal condition, Dr. Shoshany and his expert team of chiropractors manually adjust any existing abnormalities over the course of a few sessions. Chiropractic adjustments are incredibly effective for restoring proper spinal alignment, which is critical when the cause of neck pain is due to a pinched nerve or spinal subluxation in the neck area.  There is no downtime or additional discomfort to the patient, and symptoms will decrease with each adjustment. Each patient is evaluated individually but in most cases physical therapy is also recommended to address the underlying muscular imbalances, and to help the patient build mobility and strength to ensure that the pain stays away for good.

The Cause of Back Pain that Many Surgeons Overlook

When treating back pain with surgical methods, most surgeons focus only on the spine.  However, studies show that approximately one-quarter of reported incidents of lower back pain originate in the sacroiliac joint, not the spine, and are frequently misdiagnosed as spinal subluxations or herniation.  In these cases, sacroiliac joint dysfunction is the actual source of back pain and requires a different treatment approach.

New York State law requires that all insurance carriers pay for Chiropractic care. Most insurance plans are accepted without an outside referral by your doctor or insurance carrier.
