NEW YORK, May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Steven Shoshany has been treating patients

experiencing both acute and long term back pain for 20 years. Recently he acquired the FX 635 cold laser therapy device, becoming the first chiropractor in Manhattan to do so. Since January, Dr. Shoshany has been working on integrating this cutting edge laser with multiple FDA clearances for treating pain and injuries, into his downtown practice. He recently finished designing a new protocol for treating patients with herniated discs. Dr. Shoshany has found that combining spinal decompression with the FX 635 laser has been providing his patients with an increased level of pain relief both after and in between treatment sessions.

"I started putting this idea together when I realized that I wanted to offer my spinal decompression patients more than a 20-minute decompression session. When you combine decompression with the FX 635, ideally you should be able to address the herniated disc and the surrounding musculature. Cold laser therapy is deep and penetrates down to a cellular level. We can take care of so much more with a combined approach." Said Dr. Shoshany. This is not the first time he has gone about developing new and cutting edge ideas. He has long been regarded as an authority on the subject of low back pain by the chiropractic community. Dr. Shoshany is a lifelong advocate for using what works best, and combining ancillary treatments with foundational chiropractic and physical therapy to develop customized treatment plans for patients.

The FX 635 is the latest treatment to be combined with a number of now standard techniques at Dr. Shoshany's NoHo practice. According to Dr. Shoshany "Our chiropractors and physical therapists have been combining laser therapy with things like kinesiotaping and Active Release Technique for over 10 years. We really do love advancing the fight against back pain, specifically lower back pain, which is something almost everyone will experience at some point in their lives." While most people may have a herniated or bulging disc in their spine, some may not present any symptoms of a problem. The real issue with herniated and bulging discs is when they start interfering with nerves. Eventually, a herniated disc will likely start impinging a nerve, causing irritation, pain and in some cases loss of motor function. This interference with a nerve is what is sometimes commonly known as a pinched nerve.

The FX 635 laser is shown to be very effective in double-blind trials and is the only laser cleared to treat chronic lower back pain. The success rate in clinical trials was 72%. What this means is that nearly three out of four people with chronic lower back pain saw relief just from undergoing laser therapy with the FX635. Dr. Shoshany has seen the rate of success with spinal decompression climb well towards 90 percent in his own practice. He has seen patients who walk in on crutches walk without pain after only a few sessions of spinal decompression. With this new protocol for treating herniated discs with a brand new integrated approach, Dr. Shoshany is aiming for even more success with an already unparalleled track record for treating low back pain issues.

He works daily with a wide variety of patients from many different walks of life, lifestyles, and recovery goals.
