ENCORE: A Holistic Approach to Pain, Part 1
April 19, 2022
Addressing the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction: Dr. Arkady Lipnitsky takes a holistic approach to pain at RebalanceNYC, www.rebalanceNYC.com, a multidisciplinary anti-aging and rejuvenation clinic in midtown Manhattan. Calling steroid shots, perfunctory physical therapy, drugs and surgery mere “bandaid” approaches to pain conditions, Dr. Lipnitsky prefers to analyze the underlying causes of low back, neck, knee, shoulder and hip problems, which he says can usually be traced to maladaptive movement patterns. He believes prolonged sitting is a fundamental contributor to chronic pain that runs counter to our evolutionary blueprint. A pioneer in the use of a variety of modalities including movement analysis, electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), extracorporeal shock wave therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells, needling, along with nutritional support, Dr. Lipnitsky individualizes programs to help athletes, performers, and ordinary strivers achieve their goals. The key is to develop a consistent program of beneficial movement and to unlearn counter-productive patterns that prolong the injury cycle. In many cases, joint replacement and back surgery can be avoided with less invasive and more broadly therapeutic techniques. Click HERE for part 2.

Uncovering Psychological Roadblocks to Healing Back Pain, Part 1
March 29, 2022
Dr. John Sarno revolutionized medicine’s approach to back pain with his book, "The Divided Mind," in the 1980s. His thesis is that conventional therapies like surgery are over-utilized and don’t get to the root of the problem which is TMS—tension myoneural syndrome. Dr. Sarno died in 2017, but his disciple Dr. Ira Rashbaum carries on his work at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation. The method pioneered by Sarno eschews even physical therapy, chiropractic and acupuncture, and instead focuses on uncovering psychological roadblocks to recovery. Dr. Rashbaum explains how stress literally robs aching muscles of oxygen and nutrients essential for pain resolution. Dr. Sarno was beloved by patients—including many celebrities—but reviled by many of his colleagues because he challenged medical orthodoxy which invariably treats pain as the consequence of fixable structural abnormalities. Followers of Dr. Sarno like Dr. Rashbaum argue that structural changes are normal, and not always the culprit lesions that trigger pain. Dr. Rashbaum reveals that the Sarno method works to alleviate many common syndromes, including headaches, TMJ, tinnitus, and IBS. Click HERE for part 2.
