At your initial visit, one of our Seaford doctors will conduct a thorough exam needed to put in place an appropriate course of treatment.
During this consult visit, we gather medical histories and important facts about your symptoms and perform tests necessary to aid in our overall diagnosis. In order to design and develop a personalized plan, there are a number of factors that come into play. Once our assessment has been completed, we will discuss various options from bracing to surgical intervention and everything in between.

With every back surgery the need for rehabilitation goes without saying. Even the most minimally invasive surgeries require some level of physical therapy which helps with movement and mobility, decreases pain, restores function, and limits disability in individuals with injuries or impairments.*

Once your evaluation has been completed, Michael Friar, D.P.T. will design a treatment plan specific to your individual health goals.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced technology used for diagnosing many conditions. Safe and noninvasive, an MRI allows our radiologist to analyze images of both bone and soft tissue anatomy.
