If you find yourself suffering from ongoing back or neck pain that continuously interferes with your daily activities, then reach out to the dedicated team of doctors here at NYSI who specialize in the care and treatment of complexities of the spine. Back and neck pain treatment options begin with a consultation, and are followed with a thorough exam and analysis performed by a neck specialist who puts together pertinent data needed for the development of your customized treatment plan.
Following your consultation, tests will be performed with results provided to doctors and neck specialists to use in the development of your individual treatment plan.
