"The Dr. Oz Show" Touts Benefits of Chiropractic Care

"The Dr. Oz Show" recently featured a very positive segment on chiropractic care for the treatment of back pain. The show began with host Dr. Mehmet Oz choosing a member of his audience to receive an adjustment. He then proceeded to explain the meaning of the word "chiropractic" to her, and using two different models of the spine, to demonstrate how spinal misalignment can cause pain and discomfort.

Dr. Oz noted that research shows chiropractic is just as effective for treating back pain as pain medication. "It's pretty straightforward how it works," he added. The adjustment was conducted by Steven Shoshany, DC of New York. As the audience watched, Dr. Shoshany performed two side adjustments and one midthoracic adjustment. When Dr. Oz asked the volunteer how the adjustment felt, she answered "Awesome!" Watch the segment online at
