NYC Chiropractor Adds New Therapy for Chronic Back, Neck and Joint Pain to Downtown Practice

Dr. Steven Shoshany, a New York City Chiropractor, Expands Services with Rehabilitation Technique for Muscle and Joint Pain. Called FAKTR-PM or Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion, it can Help Patients Reduce or Eliminate Pain.

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2009 -- In Downtown NYC, a well known local chiropractor is adding a cutting-edge therapy for the treatment of chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain called FAKTR-PM. Dr. Steven Shoshany of Living Well Medical (located at 632 Broadway between Houston and Bleecker Streets) has been helping patients find relief from back, neck and joint pain for many years and is always searching for ways to add another dimension to his services. Already integrating treatments like physical therapy, non-surgical spinal decompression of a herniated or bulging disc with the DRX 9000, pain management, digital x-ray, cold laser therapy, and gentle chiropractic care at his practice in NYC, Dr. Shoshany saw the possibility of providing another non-invasive option to patients as a great opportunity to better serve his patients.

Called ‘Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion,’ or FAKTR-PM for short, this technique was developed in 2002 by chiropractors, Dr. Tom Hyde, Dr. Greg Doerr, and Dr. Vince DeBono. It seeks to stop chronic and acute pain syndromes associated with fascia (the soft tissue component throughout the body that underlies the skin and provides support, protection and shock-absorbency) and other soft tissues like muscles. In order to help speed recovery of these types of injuries, the specific range of motion and circumstances under which pain is experienced are recreated during treatment to precisely determine. This is what is meant by provocation. By combining manual therapy with rehabilitative concepts, the function in painful muscles and joints can be restored and aches reduced.

Problems that can be helped with hands-on therapy with Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion and tend to respond to treatment include:

- Tendinopathies like Tendonitis and Tendinosis
- Nerve Entrapments like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Piriformis Syndrome
- Muscle Pain from Strains or Sprains
- Edema as a result of Trauma
- Scar Tissue and Fibrous Adhesions

“I’m really excited to be bringing this new treatment to my patients. I think it can help a lot of people get rid of pain and feel well again,” Dr. Shoshany said of the addition to his practice. Dr. Shoshany is certified in the use of FAKTR-PM and is the first chiropractic doctor to offer this treatment methodology in NYC. For more information on FAKTR-PM and the other types of non-surgical pain relief available at Living Well Medical in NYC, call 212-645-8151.
