Scoliosis is a disease that affects millions of Americans. It is a side to side curvature of the spine, contrary to the natural front to back curves of the spine.

Medical facts gathered help doctors in performing valuable assessments. Tests performed during the initial phase of treatment will provide needed medical facts that will aid in the development of individual treatment plans. Upon completion of an assessment and any required testing, your doctor will go over all your treatment options, ranging from physical therapy and bracing, to surgical intervention, and everything in between. Most cases involve non-surgical treatments for your back or neck pain. However, some more severe cases may require surgical intervention.
Following your personal diagnosis and assessment, and the development of your personalized treatment plan, the specialists here at NYSI will work right alongside you to develop a pain management program that meets your individual needs, and will be on hand every step of your treatment going forward.

If a patient undergoes a surgical procedure, it is important that they recognize the role physical therapy and rehabilitation will play in their post-surgery protocol, and in their overall recovery. Typically, a surgery of any type requires some level of physical therapy, even the most minimally invasive surgeries. PT assists most patients with a number of elements, including movement and mobility, and also decreases pain, restores function, and limits disability in individuals with injuries or impairments. *
Michael Friar, D.P.T., leads our physical therapy department here at the NYSI, and treats all our Bayville patients with a variety of physical therapies. PT plans include proper stretching, exercise, and manual therapy. The primary goal of physical therapy is to help patients improve their health, by familiarizing them with their own body mechanics and postural awareness, as well as offering instruction on how to perform home exercises. Home exercises are beneficial to the healing process, and help patients to avoid reinjury.
PT treatments vary from patient to patient but most include a combination of cardio and weight machines that target strength and endurance training. A licensed physical therapist will evaluate and assess your health and condition before prescribing a personalized PT plan. The assessment is mandatory, and greatly assists doctors in determining current functioning levels, pain thresholds, and physical restrictions. Upon completion of an evaluation, both Michael Friar, D.P.T. and your personal doctor will design and develop a PT treatment plan that focuses on your personal health goals.
