When smaller, insignificant curves are present they typically present with no serious issues.  However, 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.

All types of surgeries, whether mildly invasive or advanced surgeries require physical therapy treatment plans as part of the rehabilitation process.  Back or neck surgery patients who undergo physical therapy following their surgeries experience increased movement and mobility, decreased pain and restored function, and their disability levels are limited in patients with injuries or impairments.*  Physical therapy is beneficial to everyone and especially those people who have lifestyles that put additional strain on their necks or backs. If you have experienced a neck or back injury, then reach out to the professionals here at the NYSI.

 Michael Friar, D.P.T., our licensed physical therapist here at the NYSI provides Northport patients and those in the adjacent towns with the highest quality physical therapy treatment options. As part of your physical therapy, our specialists will provide instruction on proper stretching, exercise, and manual therapy.  In addition, they will educate patients on the importance of body mechanics, postural awareness, and exercises that should be performed at home so as to avoid further injury.    

 Combining both cardio and weight machines helps to target strength and endurance training for all our Northport patients.  Patients cannot begin a physical therapy regimen, however, until they are evaluated by a licensed physical therapist who determines exiting functioning levels, pain threshold and physical restrictions that reduce their daily activities. Michael Friar, D.P.T. and our dedicated team of PT specialists, will work together to determine the best treatment plan for you and set practical goals for you to achieve.
