    Comment:  Subject: Back Pain Help- Thank you and Summary Comment: So sorry. Sounds terrible. Have you considered Dr. Ben Taylor is Park Slope? He's a DO specializing in OMM (osteopathic muskuloskeletal medicine or something like that). He works very gently with the body to bring things back into alignment, unlock seized up areas, etc. He doesn't take insurance, so he would be out of network, but we like him very much.

    Comment:  Subject: Back Pain Help- Thank you and Summary Comment: Yes! I feel you. For perspective, I am a former dancer who became a massage therapist who became a midwife: when my daughter was 18months I threw my back out in ways I could not fathom. I saw an osteopath in the neighborhood who helped tremendously. His name is Ben Taylor. My caveats are, as another medical professional I absolutely do not agree on his reluctance to medicinally treat pain in breastfeeding women. (he's had an earful from me so maybe it is different now.) however, his osteopathic manipulative skills are first rate. I literally went from barely being able to walk to a significant reduction in pain and ability to stand up straight the first time I saw him. However it is not inexpensive, and not covered by insurance. I do feel it was worth it. Round numbers, I think he charges close to $300 for the first visit and $180 for follow ups. Some visits it felt worth it and more, some weeks not as much. If you use him, be direct in making sure he gives you your full allotted time. (The visits I am iffy on, were due to us starting significantly late, like 30min but then finishing at the same time.) Overall, the researcher says that even if you do everything right, no strenuous lifting (ha!) and let your back heal, it typically takes 9 months to a year to come back from a slipped disc or back injury in general. A big change for me, was having pain medication/muscle relaxant. I wasn't prescribed it till close to 4 months in, and I feel it made a significant difference both in my quality of life at the time, as well as moving towards healing.

    Comment:  I can recommend Ben Taylor who is an osteopath. I took my daughter when she was 2 days old. I have also been going to him since having neck/back/pelvic problems during my pregnancy. He's on Union between 6th and 7th.

    Comment:  I am very picky about my medical professionals, but Ben Taylor, MD/Osteopath is worth considering if you need his services. My experience with Dr. Taylor simply shows that he is a talented physician; an exemplary Osteopath.Dr. Taylor works by understanding why pain is occurring (all age patients including infants and children) and relieves it.I feel that he is an expert in his field. He is gentle, highly intelligent and (may I say?) intuitive. If you are used to shopping around for physicians because you are aware that not every one is suited to your needs, please try Dr. Taylor. I am making this recommendation because he helped me back on my feet from an extremely painful pinched nerve, and I’m simply sure that this could have been done by just any doc. He takes his time and has a mental picture of what is going on, communicated to him by his sensitive touch.If you have seen similar reports about this physician on PSP, please take them seriously. You’ll be glad you did.

    Comment:  If you're ever looking for a GREAT pediatric osteopath - I have finally found one.We had tried many, many things to get my son's chest congestion to clear, and lo and behold, a few sessions with Dr. Ben Taylor finally did it. And Ryan(10 mo) LOVES being with him (as do we).(As a side note, while he specializes in pediatrics - he also works with adults and my husband tried him because he was having some weird hip pain, and that's gone too.)(june, 2010)
