Millions of people here in the United States are affected by scoliosis, which is a side to side curvature of the spine, unlike the spine’s natural front to back curves. If curvature of the spine is minimal, typically no additional health issues will be present.

We analyze and assess your symptoms and histories, perform a variety of tests, and once our diagnosis has been reached, will provide you with an effective treatment plan to combat your pain. Treatment options range from bracing and physical therapy, all the way up to surgical intervention, and a variety of other options in between. We do, however, try to avoid surgical treatments if possible, and give focus to non-invasive treatment options at the start of treatment.
Our Port Washington patients will learn effective pain management options as well at the NYSI. Though millions of people suffer from pain, understanding the source of the pain and treatment options available is essential to achieving improved health. Our back pain doctors and surgeons have undergone specialized education, which includes assessing, diagnosing and managing various types of pain, as well as training in the newest technologies, treatment options, and medical diagnostics related to back and neck pain issues.*
In addition, here at the NYSI, we provide state of the art physical therapies to help patients enjoy a successful rehabilitation and quick road to recovery. Even the most minimally invasive surgeries require some sort of physical therapy for recovery, and often times that therapy assists patients with movement and mobility, decreases pain, restores function, and limits disability in individuals with injuries or impairments.*
Our licensed physical therapist, Michael Friar, D.P.T., provides effective physical therapy treatments, including proper stretching, exercise, and manual therapy, and offers instructions to patients on the use of home exercises, body mechanics and postural awareness, all of which help in preventing injuries from recurring. He offers patients the insight needed to understand the source of their pain, the treatment options available, and cannot reinforce enough how important it is to be committed to your PT plan.
In his PT treatment plans, he combines cardio and weight machines to target strength and endurance training. Our Port Washington patients must first be evaluated by one of our licensed physical therapists to determine pain thresholds, current functioning levels, and any physical restrictions that may exist. Following this evaluation and its assessment, patients are then prescribed by Michael Friar, D.P.T. and assisting back doctors a personalized PT plan that focuses on patients’ forward goals.

We are also equipped with state-of-the-art Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray which, like the MRI, is safe and noninvasive.

The MRI has proven very valuable for diagnosing a broad range of conditions which may not be visible with other imaging methods such as x-ray, ultrasound or CT (Computed Tomography).* We are also equipped with Long Length Imaging (LLI) for diagnosis and assessment of scoliosis patients.
Here at the NYSI, our primary goal is to offer treatment to patients, along with personalized treatment plans that offer effective care and comfort to every patient.
