Icon - Scoliosis treatment - New York Spine Institute


Millions of people here in the United States are affected by scoliosis, which is a side to side curvature of the spine, unlike the natural front to back curves. When insignificant curves of the spine are present, there is typically no need for concern or alarm.  However, when large curves are present they can ultimately create a myriad of health issues. These include fatigue, muscle pain, back pain, spinal arthritis, or even breathing issues.

Our world-class scoliosis treatment center here at the NYSI is one of the best in the U.S. because we take a comprehensive approach to treating scoliosis.  We offer extensive care for both children and adults, as we understand it impacts individuals of all ages. *

The treatment spine doctors render for scoliosis is dependent upon the severity of your spine’s curvature. In some cases, back surgeons may find it necessary to rely upon surgery.  Our highly-qualified neck surgeons at our nationally ranked center, NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases, possess years of knowledge and overall experience.* Further our dedicated back surgeons have offered lectures around the world on the topic of scoliosis and have even authored many scoliosis treatment publications. For more details, refer to our Spine 101 section.

A necessary component to any rehabilitation process is that of physical therapy.  Even those most minimally invasive surgeries require effective physical therapy to aid patients in their movement and mobility, decrease pain, restore function, and limit disability for those individuals with injuries or impairments.*  Physical therapy is an especially important component of rehabilitation for patients that have lifestyles that add additional strain to their neck and back. If you’ve experienced a neck or back injury, then be sure to reach out to our renowned back specialists here at the NYSI. 

Our licensed physical therapist, Michael Friar, D.P.T., is committed to providing patients with the highest quality physical therapy treatments. Patients are given instructions on proper stretching, exercise, and manual therapy. In order to improve our patients’ condition we strive to provide them with pertinent information on body mechanics, postural awareness, and exercises that can be done at home that not only help with their healing process but assist in preventing reinjury.  We utilize cardio and weight machines to target strength and endurance training for all our Patchogue patients undergoing physical therapy. We are steadfast in providing the best treatment along with setting practical goals for patients to achieve.

Here at the NYSI we have a state of the art radiology department that includes a high field short bore 1.5T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system which is ideal for diagnosing many conditions and supports a wide range of clinical applications including, but not limited to, MRIs of the spine, brain, abdomen, pelvis, shoulder, hip, knee, elbow, wrist, hand, ankle and foot*. The MRI is both safe and noninvasive, and is an innovative tool used by our doctors for providing comfortable treatment for our patients.  Our 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. 

 The MRI system 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).*

Our facility also has a digital radiography department that is used to capture images that are digitized to allow the radiologist to analyze bone and soft tissue anatomy for diagnosis and is also equipped with Long Length Imaging (LLI) for proper scoliosis assessment as well.

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