Neuro-Orthopedic Spinal Therapy; A novel approach to managing Scoliosis. PART 1

Have you wondered how conventional scoliosis methods came to be? I often find myself pondering the origins of things, the origin of man, the origin of the universe, I’m especially perplexed by the origins of behavior. When we think about a conventional treatment in medicine, its nothing more than a behavior that is widely accepted and practiced and in not unchangeable. So how did we get to the conventional behavior of managing scoliosis with surgery alone?  In 50 years we haven’t reliably sustained reduction in the amount of scoliosis surgeries, and continue to fuse the spines of young women with […]

Should my child participate in Sports if they have scoliosis?

I recently interviewed a new patient and her family to find out her parents were encouraging her to join sports because she had recently been diagnosed with scoliosis. This is not uncommon in my practice, nor is the exact opposite, parents and doctors recommending no sports when curvatures become progressive. So which is it? Should children with scoliosis participate in sport or not? The first question that should come to mind is, what makes scoliosis curvatures progress?  This is very important to understand; genetics cause the disease, and the environment is responsible for its progression. For our purposes, the “environment” […]

Does my child have Neuro-skeletal Scoliosis?

Neuro-skeletal scoliosis is a relatively new description which describes the pathophysiology of a particular type of progressive Scoliosis. (Neuro) meaning, under the influence of the nervous system, mainly the autonomic nerves which get their start in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, and (Skeletal) pertaining to the growing bones, nerves and blood vessels all of which are involved in scoliosis. The Hypothalamus is responsible for regulating our bodies homeostasis,  which includes temperature regulation, feeding, satiety and hormonal balance. The Hypothalamus has direct links to the pituitary gland which is responsible for the onset or puberty and hormonal maturation. Nerve […]

Dr. Gary Deutchman

Dr. Deutchman has been in private practice since 1986. His dedication to service is evident in his actions; in the early 90’s, Dr. Deutchman initiated and went on to manage volunteer chiropractic care programs for orphaned infants at the Hale House in NYC, as well as a program for priests and nuns of the Fratenite de Notre Dame, a French missionary group that maintains orphanages and soup kitchens around the world. In 1999 he provided chiropractic services to the Mens-Health Crisis in New York City.

Raster Stereography – Scoliosis

Scoliosis Analysis should include imaging of the spine and posture. Our Doctors offer a completely radiation free option scoliosis analysis. We offer Raster Stereography seen above in all our Satellite locations. Reducing exposure to ionizing radiation is something we take very seriously. Today we can image the spine using Stand Up MRI technology and posture imaging systems like the Diers Formetic Scanner. When x-ray is used we routinely use breast and gonadal shielding as well as high frequency digital radiography.   .Research Articles on Scoliosis Analysis and Kyphosis Analysis.
