Scoliosis occurs when a person’s spine curves from side to side instead of front to back. While it is one of the most common spine conditions, that doesn’t make it any easier to have. It is an extremely varied condition. Not everybody who has it will necessarily need treatment, but those with extreme curves in their spine may suffer from a variety of health issues. These can range from things like fatigue to breathing issues. Patients may also suffer from image issues as a result.

If you need scoliosis treatment in The Greater New York area, then The NYSI in Poughkeepsie is the obvious choice. No matter your age or what type of scoliosis you have, we can treat you. We offer pediatric and adult care for both the degenerative and  common idiopathic sort. We’ll take a fully comprehensive approach to your condition and always provide you with the quality care that you deserve.

Since treatment is highly individualized, it is hard to estimate what you may need. But if you need surgery, then the NYSI in Poughkeepsie will have you in good hands. All of our back and spine surgeons are experts in their field and have the credentials to prove it. They have lectured throughout the world and authored multiple scholarly publications regarding spine disorders.

When your surgery is over, one of the best things you can do for your health is to enroll in physical therapy. Even if your surgery was minimally invasive, you can’t simply expect to feel better right away. When you add physical therapy to your recovery program, you’ll be able to aid your movement and mobility, decrease pain, restore function, and limit disability. If you’re in a job that requires you to put constant strain on your neck or back, that may be especially important to you.

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine was invented in 1977 and has since revolutionized medical practices everywhere. It is a useful, non-invasive, and safe way to help diagnose conditions. Our MRI machine gives our doctors the tools that they need to analyze your bones and soft tissue anatomy.

Our office in Poughkeepsie has state of the art and technologically advanced diagnostic tools. In addition to our 1.5 MRI system, we also have a Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray.

Our high-field short bore 1.5 MRI system supports many clinical situations. We can do MRI scans of the spine, brain, abdomen, pelvis, shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, wrist, ankle, and even the foot!

New York Spine Institute’s brand-new GE 1.5 system will also provide our physicians with their best images yet. With this system, our back surgeons will be able to see high-quality and detailed pictures of your condition. That way, they can try to more accurately diagnose and eventually treat your back pain.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnetism and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body. It is used all over the world to diagnose multiple conditions. That is because it is extremely safe, non-invasive, and helpful to physicians. Many times, an MRI scan will pick up the presence of a certain disease when other tools such as x-rays cannot.

We know that doctor’s visits can be scary but we don’t think they should be. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in our office. That is why we have made our office in Poughkeepsie as relaxing as possible. We have relaxing music, earplugs, and even sleeping masks.

New York Spine Institute of Poughkeepsie  is even outfitted with its own digital radiology department. In this part of our practice, the images are digitized and radiologists can analyze bone and soft tissue. As part of this, we also offer Longth Length Imaging (LLI) for proper scoliosis assessment.

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