PAIN MANAGEMENT PSYCHOLOGY

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Minimally invasive and non-surgical rehabilitation are more than just buzzwords for suffers of injuries ranging from mild to extreme—they are the only option for successful recovery. Sound musculoskeletal and orthopaedic fitness can be elusive to those who have suffered an injury or lead busy lifestyles. Patients who wish to access world-class care on Long Island can now turn to New York Spine Institute’s licensed physical therapist – Michael Friar.

Physical Therapy is used to encourage mobility and movement, decrease pain, restore function and prevent disability in patients with injuries or impairments.  This is achieved through the use of modalities, active and passive stretching, engaging in an exercise program and manual therapy.  Patients are taught proper body mechanics, postural awareness and home exercise programs to provide maintenance of their current condition and to avoid exacerbations in the future.  The New York Spine Institute offers an array of weight machines to improve strength, in addition to cardio apparatuses for endurance training.  Patients will be evaluated by a licensed physical therapist to determine their current level of function, pain intensity and restrictions with their activities of daily living.  Michael Friar, D.P.T. will discuss the treatment options available to the patient based on the findings from the initial evaluation and set realistic goals in conjunction with the patient to receive the most optimal regimen.

IMAGING SERVICES

The New York Spine Institute offers state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging: a high field short bore 1.5T MRI system and Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray.

The high field short bore 1.5T MRI system supports a wide range of clinical applications including but not limited to MRI’s of the Spine, Brain, Abdomen, Pelvis, Shoulder, Knee, Hip, Elbow, Wrist, Hand, Ankle and Foot.

The New York Spine Institute’s brand new GE 1.5T system provides our physicians with high quality, detailed pictures of anatomy and pathology to help evaluate a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has proven very valuable for diagnosing a broad range of conditions. It is a safe, painless, non-invasive exam that utilizes magnetism and radio waves to produce detailed images used to evaluate various parts of the body and determine the presence of certain diseases which may not be visible with other imaging methods such as x-ray, ultrasound or CT (Computed Tomography).

Each patient is treated with individualized care and comfort is our main priority. We provide a relaxing and calming environment with choice of music, earplugs and sleeping mask to make you feel at home.

This facility also has a digital radiography department. In this medium, the captured images are digitized so the radiologist can analyze bone and some soft tissue anatomy for diagnosis. We also provide Long Length Imaging (LLI) for proper scoliosis assessment.
