Degenerative Disc Disease Uptown Manhattan, New York City

Degenerative Disc Disease Uptown Manhattan, New York City


There are few things as disruptive in our lives as pain. Back pain in particular has the capacity to cripple us, to reduce our lives to a few essential activities, and, in short, take away many of the things that make life fun and worth living. In many cases, as we get older, the discs in our backs lose their ability to cushion the vertebrae, perhaps even leading to ruptures and severe pain. This is often referred to as Degenerative Disc Disease. In New York City, Dr. Steven Moalemi, M.D., stops back pain with non-surgical methods at his pain management center serving Uptown Manhattan.

Degenerative Disc Disease is a common ailment for people in their fifties and beyond. Age causes the outer layer of spinal discs to become weaker and more susceptible to trauma or injury. What results is a herniated or bulging disc where fluid from the nucleus of the disc swells outward and presses against the bundle of nerves that run throughout the spine. Severe, chronic pain and numbness are often the results. Using spinal decompression technology, Dr. Moalemi helps undo the damages caused by the wear and tear of everyday life.


Dr. Moalemi is one of the few M.D.'s in manhattan currently using the DRX 9000 to treat back pain conditions including herniated disc. Even though Dr. Moalemi is able to fill out prescriptions for pills that will temporarily relieve pain, he does not because he feels that this will only mask the pain and never truly get to the source of the problem. He favors and is successful in treating pain 100% naturally without the use of drugs. 

In addition to degenerative disc disease, Dr. Moalemi and Empire Physical Medicine & Pain Management can effectively treat several conditions like:
- Spinal Stenosis
- Bulging Discs
- Sciatica
- Herniated Discs
- Posterior Facet Syndrome
- Spondylosis

If you have chronic back pain and think it might on account of Degenerative Disc Disease, call Steven Moalemi, M.D. today. Serving Uptown Manhattan and all of New York City, he knows how to stop the pain and restore you to the life you loved.
