If you suffer with a herniated disc or have chronic neck and Low back pain consider spinal decompression before surgery. www.drshoshany.com
To have an effective spinal decompression program several components must be addressed like 1) Nutrition- A combination of nutrients and herbs to help heal damaged tissues 2) effective rehab program which includes training on the Spine Force and Power Plate and the MedX medical grade strengthening equipment 3) custom bracing to support muscles and disc-back bracing 4) Heat prior to and ice post decompression along with a form of high volt stimulation 5) Patients must learn how not to re injure themselves- I conduct a weekly back care class that educates patients on proper lifting and body bio mechanics 6) one commonly overlooked area is the feet I conduct a computerized gait analysis to assess the biomechanics of a patients gait and build a custom made orthotic to correct the gait(the way patients walk) 7)Cox Flexion distraction- which is the only technique that (aka flexion-distraction or F/D) relieves back and leg pain and neck and arm pain. Disc herniation and/or stenosis may be the cause of pain. Or simple arthritis or a back sprain may be the culprit.
