There are millions of people here in the United States that are affected by scoliosis, which is a side to side curvature of the spine, unlike the natural front to back curves of the spine. Smaller, insignificant curves typically do not cause serious problems whereas larger curves in the spine can contribute to a myriad of health issues, including, but not limited to, fatigue, muscle pain, back pain, spinal arthritis, or even breathing issues.

 If you are in search of superior scoliosis treatment in the Lloyd Harbor area, then be sure to visit the professionals at the NYSI.  Our spine and back specialists take pride in treating varying degrees and types of scoliosis, from degenerative scoliosis to the more common idiopathic types.

If you are suffering from ongoing back pain that is constantly disrupting your day to day life, then it’s time to reach out to the back doctors at New York Spine Institute who can provide you with personalized back pain treatment options. Our spine specialists understand the complexities of the spine and provide personalized back or neck pain treatments as needed. Doctors will perform a thorough exam to identify the source of your pain, the extent of your pain and put in place a full diagnosis before recommending treatment options. 

We give primary focus to your described symptoms as well as test results when making our diagnosis.  There are a wide range of factors that play a role in prescribing appropriate treatment options. Depending on our diagnosis and final assessment, your treatment options can vary from bracing to surgical intervention. We customize each treatment plan to meet the individual needs of all our Lloyd Harbor patients and give focus to non-surgical back pain treatment methods rather than surgical interventions.

Spine Conditions We Treat:


Even the most mildly invasive surgeries require some degree of physical therapy as part of the rehabilitation process.  Physical therapy following back surgery or neck surgery aids patients with their movement and mobility, helps to decrease pain and restore function, and limits disability in individuals with injuries or impairments.*  Physical therapy is especially important to those individuals who have lifestyles that put additional strain on their necks or backs. If you have suffered from a neck or back injury, then look to our dedicated back specialists here at the NYSI.

 Here at the NYSI our licensed physical therapist, Michael Friar, D.P.T., is committed to providing all our Lloyd Harbor patients with the highest quality physical therapy treatment options. Our team of specialists will offer instruction on proper stretching, exercise, and manual therapy and provide knowledge and insight on body mechanics, postural awareness, and exercises that can be performed at home and will help in preventing further injury. 

We combine both cardio and weight machines to target strength and endurance training for all our Lloyd Harbor patients undergoing physical therapy. Before a patient begins a PT program, they must be evaluated by a licensed physical therapist who will determine current functioning levels, pain threshold and physical restrictions that hinder their daily activities. Depending on your evaluation results, Michael Friar, D.P.T. and the team of specialists, will work together to determine the best treatment plan and set practical goals for patients to aim toward.
