New York, NY (PRWEB) October 2, 2007 -- New York City-based www.drshoshany.com chiropractor Dr. Steven Shoshany D.C, C.C.E.P. recently introduced a powerful new tool to his practice with the arrival of the Power Plate®, and its origins are literally out of this world.
Power Plate® is an advanced machine that allows people with various conditions -- including chronic lower back pain , weak muscles, chronic knee pain, and decreased bone density -- to exercise while working within their personal physical limitations using the concept known as Acceleration Training™. According to the Power Plate® Web site, this style of exercise was first used (on the ground) by Soviet cosmonauts in the 1960s to counteract the bone and muscle degeneration caused by zero gravity.
Power Plate® specifically utilizes this sophisticated, space-age training technique -- and the end result means improved treatment of the symptoms for patients who suffer from these challenging conditions.
"This machine not only enhances but speeds up the healing process relating to these different ailments," Shoshany said. The acquisition of this cutting-edge technology continues a trend for the center of being at the forefront of the latest chiropractic technology, which has been endorsed by a wide range of professional athletes and celebrities around the world. He is also Manhattan's only chiropractor to have integrated this technology into practice, he said.
"We are very excited to introduce this powerful new aid to what we do at the center," said Shoshany, founder and owner of The Downing Chiropractic and Pain Management Center in New York City . "This technique has greatly enhanced the already stunning success I am having with DRX 9000 spinal decompression treatments with herniated disc problems and chronic low back pain."
Shoshany, who is also the clinic director of the New York Disc Decompression Center and the founder of the Spinal Decompression Institute , said he agrees with the Power Plate® Web site's assertions that the biomechanical applications of Acceleration Training™ exercise using Power Plate® machines are becoming accepted in the medical field for the prevention and treatment of different types of illnesses and injuries.
"This is an impressive machine, and will help to improve the lives of the patients who choose to use it," Shoshany said.
