Sciatica can cause a significant amount of pain and discomfort that can result in limitations on what activities you are able to perform. There are many treatment options available for sciatic and finding the one that works best for you can take some effort. Here at our medical offices, our team of professionals will work with you to find the root cause of your issues and come up with solutions that will provide you with long term relief.
When you come into our offices you will meet with your doctor and the rest of the team to help come up with an effective plan of action. Throughout the process you will be involved with helping learn what is most effective based on your unique situation. This teamwork approach helps us to get to a sciatic treatment that works for you more quickly and easily than most other facilities can provide. If you live in Midtown NYC, Midtown Manhattan or anywhere in or around NYC, we encourage you to get in touch with us to learn more about sciatica treatment options.
Sciatica Physical Therapy
One of the most effective options for treating sciatic is using physical therapy. This involves specific stretches, exercises and other activities that will help address the root causes of your sciatica. In many cases this treatment can provide pain relief and overall improvement within just a few days and the longer it is performed, the better results. Even in situations where this doesn’t give a full recovery, physical therapy is almost always an important aspect of your overall treatment plan.
In addition to exercises and active physical therapy, we can also help you to find physical therapy products that can provide effective treatment. There are pillows, for example, that are made specifically to help your body rest in a way that will reduce the overall pain associated with the sciatica. Our trained and experienced medical professionals can determine which of these products will help you the most.
Pain Relief Options
When treating sciatica it is important to start by getting a handle on the pain. The pain can be debilitating, which can limit other treatment options, which is why this is the place to start. Whenever possible we prefer to offer more natural pain treatments such as acupuncture or chiropractic care. In some cases this can also be combined with prescription pain management, but only as a last resort. We’ve found that patients have better results when they start by working with the body in a more natural way.
If you are interested in learning more about our comprehensive sciatic treatment options, please feel free to contact us and set up an appointment. When you come in we will perform a full evaluation to see just which treatment options will be most effective for you. We serve people throughout Midtown Manhattan, Midtown NYC and the surrounding NYC area and look forward to helping you find an effective treatment for your sciatica as quickly as possible.

Suffering from a herniated disc can be extremely painful and debilitating. For many people it can make it impossible to work, play or do anything but sit or lay down. Even sitting and laying down can be extremely uncomfortable. Depending on the severity of the herniated disc, there are many treatment options. Unfortunately, none of them can provide immediate and complete relief. With the right care, however, you can eliminate the back pain and restore your life to the way it once was.
When seeking treatment for a herniated disc there are two ‘camps’ that are most popular for treatment. Some doctors like to jump right to a surgical solution whenever possible. Other doctors prefer offering medication to dull the pain and some physical therapy to attempt to fix the actual issue. Unfortunately, neither of these options is best. Here at our clinic we look at each patient and evaluate what the best course of action is. We use a variety of treatment options based on your specific needs to help you get the best possible results. We’ve helped hundreds of people who suffered from herniated discs in Midtown NYC, Midtown Manhattan and throughout NYC, and we’d be honored to help you as well.
Chiropractic Treatment for Herniated Disc
One of the things that we offer our patients that many other doctors don’t is our chiropractic care. A herniated disc can often be dramatically improved through the skilled manipulation of the spine that our trained Chiropractor can do. In some cases our Chiropractor can help align your spin, which will help relieve the pain and allow your body to heal itself naturally. Even when this is not possible, the chiropractic care can help make other treatment options more effective.
Acupuncture Treatment for Disc Herniation
We also have a skilled acupuncturist on staff who can help treat your herniated disc. Acupuncture can serve as a natural pain blocker while other treatments are being used. In addition, this ancient treatment can also help to relax muscles to allow your spine to recover more naturally. Whether used to treat the disc directly or as part of your overall treatment plan, acupuncture is an extremely helpful option for many of our patients.
Other Treatment Options for Disc Herniation
In addition to the Chiropractor and acupuncturist, we have a team of medical professionals who can help provide you a holistic treatment plan. This can include medications, massage, decompression therapy and much more. Unlike many doctors, we are open to a wide variety of different treatment methods based on the specifics of your case. Our goal is always to provide you with a treatment that will allow your body to recover so you can live pain free without relying on any medications.
Please be sure to give us a call at 646-770-0916 to speak with one of our customer service professionals. They can answer questions about our treatment options or set you up with an appointment with our team. We happily serve people throughout Midtown NYC, Midtown Manhattan, NYC and the surrounding area who are suffering with a herniated disc or any number of other ailments.

Back pain is one of the most debilitating issues that people face on a day to day basis. It can be caused by anything from a surgery to an injury or even just picking something up improperly. In fact, there are many cases where the cause of the pain is not actually known. No matter why your back is causing you problems, however, you want to do everything you can to eliminate the pain as quickly as possible and in a way that will provide you with long term relief.
For many people, however, the treatment that they have been receiving for their back pain is almost worse than the pain itself. This is because many doctors and therapists don’t actually attempt to get to the root of the issue. Instead they attempt to hide the pain using drugs or other treatments that can leave you with many unwanted side effects. To make it worse, if you ever discontinue their treatments the back pain will return right away. If you come to our center, however, we will work with you to address the actual cause of your pain so you can get a long term solution you can live with. We serve patients throughout Midtown Manhattan, Midtown NYC and throughout the greater NYC area.
Many Treatment Approaches
One of the reasons that we are able to treat back pain better than other facilities is because we don’t limit our self to just one or two methods. Instead, we have specialists in a variety of areas who can work together to figure out what the right approach is for your specific case. Your team will include a medical doctor, a Chiropractor, an acupuncturist and a physical therapist. Each of these individuals will work with you to find out how to solve the back pain problems you’re facing.
During your actual treatment you’ll be given the right combination of medications, massage, natural physical therapy, decompression therapy, acupuncture and more to get you the relief you need. As improvements are made, your specific treatment will be adjusted to help you move away from any pain killers and their unwanted side effects and toward a time when you won’t need any type of treatment at all. The bottom line here is that our team of medical professionals will work with you to find an actual cure for your back pain, not just a treatment. While every case is unique, we can promise that we’ll always put your long term health first so you can get the results that you’re looking for.
If you are interested in learning more about our back pain treatment options or you want to set up an appointment to meet with our team of doctors and medical professionals, please give us a call at 646-606-2978. Most of our patients are from Midtown NYC, Midtown Manhattan and throughout NYC. We are happy to help people from anywhere in the world, however, if you are able to come to this area for your treatments. We can even provide second opinions or other options if you are unhappy with the physical therapy or back pain treatments you are currently receiving. Whatever it is you need, just let us know and we’ll do everything we can to help.

Apostherapy bio mechanical device retrains the Way you walk. Gradually retraining muscles around the knee joint. That results in less load, wear and tear on your knee joint. Knee pain compensation, resulting from any underlying knee condition like OA or meniscus tears, will result in muscle bracing. This is the body’s attempt to stabilize and support a painful joint. Initially this compensation is beneficial. If the bracing persists past the point of compensation it can add to the problem leading to more chronic type condition.
Knee Pain NYC; Relief with Apostherapy
Apostherapy helps to retrain the way you walk. By adding ‘perturbation’ to the bottom of the foot we are able to modify the way your body contacts the ground. This also changes the way those forces interact with your muscular and skeletal system. Over time, this leads to less compensatory muscle bracing and stronger, more condition, stabilizing muscles. By improving the mechanics of gait we can improve the way forces are introduced into the body and ultimately into the knee joint itself.

“Getting straightened out can have benefits for both your sedentary life and your gym performance ,” says Karen Erickson, D.C., a spokesperson for the American Chiropractic Association. “Besides relief of muscle soreness and pain, patients often report an overall feeling of well-being and reduced stress.
Athletes, dancers, celebrities, corporate CEO’s, white collar professionals, blue collar professionals, stay at home parents, retired folk, students…they are all using chiropractic in their health regimine today. There is a chiro resurgence to get “straightened” and be the best that we can be naturally.
The paparazzi snapped Leonardo DiCaprio leaving a chiropractic office in New Orleans. Kim Kardashian tweeted, “Chiropractors really are life savers.. I’m obsessed!” Jessica Alba is reportedly a fan.
Athletes, musicians, dancers, and actors all learn posture and positioning as a foundation for excellence. When your joints are aligned, your muscles can fire in their strongest position and your body moves with least resistance.
You can avoid neck and back pain with proper positioning. Your best ergonomic position is where you are facing your task without having to twist, bend, or rotate your joints in an uncomfortable way.
Be aware of your posture. Good posture prevents neck and back pain. An aligned spine will have less pain. Shoulder pain is also reduced when shoulders are in alignment, so you have less risk of rotator cuff issues. Proper head positioning — directly over the body and not too far forward or tilted to one side — prevents headaches.
Be aware of your positioning as you sleep. Having too much pillow height can cause you to twist. A low pillow with more cushion under the neck and less under the head will keep the neck straight and eliminate pain. Your head should be straight over the body, not pitched too far forward. Also, if you place a pillow between your legs, it will prevent your spine and pelvis from twisting.
Exercise, proper diet, and keeping your spine aligned will help you feel your best. Be aware of your posture and positioning during your daily tasks. Make an appointment to get straightened out and feel the pressure release. Chiropractic practices can transform your life, wiping away pain, and building the foundation for true health.

Athletes from many sports use chiropractic care to help improve their performance. Chiropractic procedures are safe and effective in maximally benefiting an athlete- professional or amateur. Chiropractic care makes “adjustments” to the spine which are commonly known to help with back pain, but additionally, they help your nervous system, maximize joint mechanics, and improve your overall health.
Major league baseball season is around the corner. Baseball can seem like a gentlemanly sport when compared to football and hockey, but the incidence of injury can be quite high. Many MLB teams have a team Chiropractor where regular chiropractic care provides baseball players with proper spinal function and balance to reduce the risk of spine-related injuries, enhance recovery time, and improve overall performance.
With chiropractic care, players report that they feel better and have better endurance. Their body mechanics are significantly improved, enabling better pitching, hitting, and throwing. The team Chiropractor for the San Francisco Giants was on the mound celebrating with the team during their 2010 World Series victory as it was said that chiropractic care was very much part of their success that year.
Golfers use chiropractic to maintain a strong foundation in the body. The pelvis is where most of the power is created. The lower body and pelvis create torque during the swing, while the upper body acts like a whip. Without that strong foundation on the bottom half and flexibility on the top, the golfer’s swing will suffer.
A chiropractic adjustment can re-align the lower back and improve the muscle action of the lower body. The combination of chiropractic treatment and core stability training can improve a golfer’s game considerably. Tiger Woods has said,” I’ve been going to chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”
Michael Jordan, six time NBA Champion, six time Final MVP, and five time NBA MVP, has said of chiropractic, “I didn’t know how much I could improve until I started seeing a Chiropractor. Since I’ve been in chiropractic, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds, both mentally and physically.”
Chiropractic care can give an athlete a competitive advantage in whatever sport they participate in. It helps to enhance endurance levels, assist in the recovery from many structural injuries, and achieve overall peak performance. By including chiropractic into an athlete’s regular health practices, one is able to maximize training and optimize functional balance and skill.
Many avoidable injuries sideline professional athletes. Many athletes continue to compete at less than peak efficiency, simply because their structural system is not in balance. Coaches and their athletes are realizing that pain killing drugs, muscle relaxers, and cortisone injections are not the answer to injury. Medications merely cover up the symptoms and may make the injury more serious or interfere with the healing process
The key to a successful team and an individual athlete is injury prevention. This is true for the professional or amateur. Keep your spine in line and your nervous system in balance. Dr. Noam Sadovnik and Dr. Lauren Fries of Launchfit™ by Clinicube®for Chiropractic & Decompression NYC offer exceptional chiropractic services with a goals-oriented, integrated approach. Play the game of your life by being the best that you can be!

November is Lung Cancer Awareness month. During the month, many people throughout the country and the world come together for the lung cancer community. Events are held; articles are written; Facebook statuses are updated, videos are created; and proclamations are issued.
In our own lives, we can be mindful of staying healthy by eating good whole foods, incorporating exercise in our days, and keeping our bodies in line with regular holistic chiropractic care. Good nutrition keeps excess weight off and provides energy to deal with the stressors of everyday life. See the list below for foods that offer benefits in preventing and healing disease:
Top 5 Foods to Fight Lung Cancer
Broccoli: Broccoli tops the list of green, cruciferous vegetables that help fight lung cancer. It contains sulforaphane, which increases the production of enzymes that can eliminate carcinogens from cells. Broccoli consumed in any form is fine, but raw or juiced is believed to be optimal in order to ingest the vegetable in its purest form.
Green tea: Studies have shown that heavy smokers who drank decaffeinated green tea had a 31% decrease in their urinary levels of 8-OHdG (a marker of oxidative stress in DNA that is higher in people with lung cancer as opposed to other cancers). Green tea has long been touted for its powerful antioxidant properties, namely catechins, for its ability to diminish cancer risks and contribute to longer lives. Quite simply, the properties of tea have been found to stop a tumor from even forming in the first place.
Whole grains: According the University of Maryland Medical Center, foods high in iron and zinc, such as whole grains, play a large factor in reducing the severity of lung cancer symptoms.
Salmon: This fish is an important source of Omega-3 fatty acids, a healthy fat that helps maintain a strong system. Omega-3 helps regulate circulatory and nervous system functions and is especially beneficial for those with a compromised system due to lung cancer complications. The fatty acid is also responsible for delivering proper vitamins throughout the body. It contains protein which the American Cancer Society says people with cancer need more of than those without the illness. In fact, low protein consumption can actually delay lung cancer healing. All of this, along with a balanced diet, plays a role in preventing lung cancer cell growth.
Finding wild caught fish that promotes health might be a challenge. Additional choices for healthy fats include chia and flax in whole seed, ground, or oil form.
Garlic: One of garlic’s potent ingredients, diallyl sulphide, acts like an antibiotic in the body and is often sought after by lung cancer patients because it may help reduce the production of cancer-causing chemicals. Garlic can also increase the white blood cells in the body, responsible for fighting toxins and helping prevent lung cancer.

National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) kicks off in October 2013 with the theme of “Get Vertical!” Get Vertical focuses on the importance of joint health at all stages of life and what people can do to keep their joints functioning properly.
ACA encourages everyone to use the month of October to get off their couches and office chairs, stand up and move! In other words, Get Vertical!
Joints are critical to all movement and allow us to carry out normal activities of daily living. Some 150 million to 200 million cases of back pain send people to the doctor every year—and many of those are related to joint injuries. The bones that make up the joint allow movement, but it is the muscles that pull the bones that produce the movement.
The movements that you perform on a daily basis are critical to long-term joint health, as are proper nutrition, a healthy exercise regimen, and a healthy lifestyle. Moving a joint through its full range of motion serves several important purposes. Joints are not supplied directly with blood as are other organs within the body, but instead are nourished with synovial fluid that is forced into the joint cartilage through pressure resulting from body movement. So the saying, “Use it or lose it” applies to joint function.
