With millions of people across the United States affected by scoliosis it has become a common spinal condition that we treat at NYSI. Scoliosis is the side to side curvature of the spine and can result in debilitating pain if the case is severe. For those with slight curvatures you are likely to not experience any pain or symptoms, but for those with large curves you may experience any of the following: fatigue, muscle pain, back pain, spinal arthritis, or breathing issues.

For those who suffer from scoliosis our qualified spine doctors at New York Spine Institute can help get you on a road to recovery and relief. Our back and neck doctors treat patients of all ages, from pediatric to adulthood, and can treat the different types like idiopathic or degenerative. Our premier scoliosis care and treatment methods are one reason that NYSI is a top choice for back pain for patients all around the world. We take your comfort into full consideration when examining, diagnosing, and recommending treatment plans.*

Treatment for scoliosis depends on its level of severity. For those suffering from scoliosis without relief from other noninvasive treatments, our back and spine specialists will advise that you undergo surgery. Our top spine surgeons routinely perform this surgery at the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases and will lead your procedure with experience and intensive knowledge.* These nationally recognized surgeons are authors and have spoken at lectures around the world in regards to scoliosis treatment. For more information refer to the Spine 101 section.

In order to have a successful recovery after back surgery you must undergo some amount of physical therapy, regardless of how invasive your surgery was. Physical therapy can help patients regain movement and mobility, decrease pain, restore function, and limit disability in those with injuries or impairments.* We highly recommend physical therapy to all of our patients after back surgery, especially those with lifestyles that put additional strain on their neck or back. Contact one of our back specialists today to discuss your condition.

New York Spine Institute’s licensed physical therapist, Michael Friar, D.P.T., is committed to providing you with excellent physical therapy care. While with us you will be instructed on proper stretching, exercise, and manual therapy. In order to fully help our patients understand their condition we teach them vital information on body mechanics, postural awareness, and exercises that can be done at home. We focus on helping them heal properly along with preventing further injury and strain.

We combine cardio and weight machines, used for strength and endurance training, while our patients undergo their physical therapy. Every patient is evaluated by a licensed physical therapist before beginning any program here at NYSI. We determine our patients initial  function levels, pain threshold, and physical restrictions. After analyzing your results Michael Friar, D.P.T., will then determine a proper treatment plan for you while keeping in mind any personal goals you have set.

X-ray icon - Imaging Services - NY Spine



Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can help our radiologists further diagnose certain diseases and conditions. This noninvasive method allows our Ardsley patients to experience a safe and painless exam. In the digital radiology department radiologists can analyze images captured during the MRI and apply their findings to help pinpoint your diagnosis and help create your personalized treatment plan.

New York Spine Institute offers top diagnostic imaging: a high field short bore 1.5T MRI system and Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray for our patients in Ardsley.

This high field short bore 1.5T MRI system supports clinical applications, some of which include MRI’s of the Spine, Brain, Abdomen, Pelvis, Shoulder, Knee, Hip, Elbow, Wrist, Hand, Ankle and Foot.*

New York Spine Institute is proud to use the advanced GE 1.5T system which provides our physicians with detailed pictures of anatomy and pathology, helping them to evaluate a long list of musculoskeletal disorders.

Unlike other imaging tests like x-rays, ultrasound, or CT (Computed Tomography), the MRI can help detect a wider variety of diseases. MRI’s are safe and non-invasive, making them ideal for most patients. Using magnets and radio waves, the MRI is able to capture detailed images of the body and help to determine the presence of certain diseases or conditions.*

We do our best to provide each of our patients with a relaxing environment while they undergo their MRI giving each patient earplugs, a sleeping mask, and allow them their choice of music.

NYSI also has its own digital radiography department where the captured images are digitized. Then one of our expert radiologists can analyze them for bone and soft tissue anatomy for diagnosis. In addition we have Long Length Imaging (LLI) for further scoliosis testing.

*The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment will vary by patient and condition. New York Spine Institute does not guarantee certain results.
