New York Spine Health and its founder & chief clinician, Dr. Eric I. Degis, MS, DC, have been providing conservative non-surgical treatment options for Spine and Sports related injuries since 1997. Research has often concluded that when the primary goal of low back care is pain reduction alone, the long-term results will be mixed at best. The “conservative care model” takes a comprehensive and individualized approach that analyzes each person’s life as a unique whole. The end goal is to educate, guide, and empower each person to be able to take control of their own health.
Dr. Degis has also been able to incorporate his “conservative care model” into the treatment and management of many other musculoskeletal issues. This approach can work for most spine related issues from one-time acute occurrences, to chronic decade long sufferers. From those looking to prevent surgery to those struggling to recover after surgery. Issues such as rotator cuff impingements, IT band friction syndrome, and tension headaches to name a few, can all be positively affected by the “conservative care model”. Correcting imbalances and removing hidden stresses often found in a persons ADL’s, can lead to improved outcomes and a pain free return to activity.
New York Spine Health helps people with spine and sports related injuries which in itself, is not unique. What is unique though, is how we go about it and the determination and passion that drives it. Patients need to understand what created their issues and what is continually fueling it to remain active or chronic. They then need to learn how to modify their activities to break the chain that continually pains them. We take great pride in knowing that thousands of patients have trusted us with their health and that we continually follow through on our promises to them.
