Spine pain is one of the leading reasons that people in New York City miss work, and there are an enormous number of causes for it.  Within the spine there are numerous overlapping and interwoven structures that can produce pain. Spine pain in the lower back and neck is prevalent with lower back muscle strains and sprains being the most common causes of low back pain.  The lower back and neck region of the spine are prone to strain because of its weight-bearing function and involvement in moving, twisting and bending.

Lower back muscle strain is caused when muscle fibers are abnormally stretched or torn.  Lower back sprain is caused when ligaments — the tough bands of tissue that hold bones together — are unusually stretched.   Sudden injury or overuse over time can cause lower back sprains. When the lower back spine is strained or sprained, the soft tissues become inflamed generating pain and may produce muscle spasms.  

Pain intensity, frequency and a person’s ability to cope with it is very differently for every person.  With some conditions, the pain can flare up from time to time and then subside, only to flare up again after a few weeks or months and gradually intensify over time. Because only you know your level of pain, your treatment will most likely be more successful if you proactively participate in making decisions about your treatment care.  New York City is very big and it can be a huge relief to know that the doctors and specialists treating you discuss your condition face to face and constantly monitor your progress, ready to add or take away treatment methods depending on what you need.  If you’re experiencing spine pain reach me, I can help you.  

About Dr. Kaminsky & Craniosacral Therapy

Having a Chiropractic background since the year 2000, Dr. Kaminsky offers many methods of treatment with an emphasis on Craniosacral Therapy in NYC.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a method focusing on the link between the cranium (head) and sacrum (the second to last bone at the base of your spine), scientifically proven to work in unison to pump fluid throughout the body, an unknown disruption of which can cause many health issues.  The craniosacral mechanism pumps vital fluid called cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) through the body and in a sense energetically lubricates the joints, tissues, organs; basically all cells of the body. It is the driving force of all your body’s systems of function; including maintaining the tone of your muscles.

The Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord) are surrounded with CSF generating energetic rhythmic impulses of fluid delicately pumping throughout your body’s parts “breathing” the movement of life. This measurable rhythm of moving fluid, like the heart rhythm, pulse rhythm, breathing rhythm is the foundational “blueprint” and primary principle of our real-time state of our health. 

Compromises of our rhythmic movements of fluid flow correlates to the impulse restrictions in the system which the body is unable to overcome or self-correct. This is the reason why we have “dis-ease”, symptoms, conditions, basically all ailments.  This is where the skill of an experienced craniosacral therapist becomes valuable.  By placing his or her hands on your body the practitioner can feel, detect, evaluate, and facilitate correction of these restrictive arrhythmic impulses.

The craniosacral therapist helps your rhythm restore and renew in compromised areas allowing for healing to take place of sensory, motor, musculoskeletal, neurological disorders, symptoms, conditions and pain.  To learn more, visit the other pages on this website.
