Sciatica Uptown Manhattan, New York City

Sciatica Uptown Manhattan, New York City


Severe and chronic pain that begins in the lower back and radiates down the back of the legs is a very common indicator of sciatica, a group of symptoms that can be debilitating if left untreated. In years past, surgery and pain medications were the only recourse to severe back pain, but now spinal decompression has been shown to be a viable alternative to going under the knife or popping pills. At Empire Physical Medicine & Pain Management in Uptown Manhattan, New York City, Dr. Steven Moalemi, M.D. uses spinal decompression for sciatica patients in addition to physical therapy, acupuncture and traditional pain management techniques.

Sciatica is often the result of a nerve that is being compressed by a ruptured, herniated or bulging disc. The sciatic nerve is a dense bundle of nerve tissue that runs up the spinal cord, and extreme pain or numbness can result if this nerve is badly compressed. Spinal decompression works to relieve the pressure that is being placed on the sciatic nerve by increasing the disc height and allowing disc material to return to its appropriate location.


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. 

Dr. Moalemi can treat several conditions beyond sciatica such as:


- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Spinal Stenosis
- Shoulder Pain / Impingement
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Posterior Facet Syndrome
- Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
- Sports Injuries like Tennis Elbow - Spondylosis


The pain of sciatica won't go away if you do nothing. Call Dr. Steven Moalemi, M.D. near Uptown Manhattan, New York City today and schedule a consultation to see if spinal decompression is right for you. You can put a stop to your pain so call now.
