If you’re a Long Islander, chances are you’re an active person. The majority of Long Island residents work hard, play hard, and keep busy with athletic and social activities, hobbies and crafts, exercising to keep fit, and taking care of children, pets, or infirm elderly relatives. With New York City easily accessible, Long Islanders journey to plays, museums, and restaurants. For Long Islanders dealing with stiff joints or musculoskeletal pain, our Long Island Rehabilitation Clinic is here to help.
Why Long Island Rehabilitation Clinics Are Magnets for Long Islanders in Pain
While keeping busy is good for body and mind, your body may protest if you take a bad fall while exercising, playing a game of soccer, or chasing a toddler through the park. Similarly, strains and sprains, pinched nerves, stiff necks, and herniated discs can occur when you lift something too heavy, work for too many hours at the computer, clean out the attic or simply turn awkwardly while knitting. This is why our Long Island Rehabilitation Clinic attracts Long Islanders suffering pain, stiffness, and immobility.

What Long Island Rehabilitation Clinics Provide
Each Long Island Rehabilitation Clinic is staffed with medical doctors well-trained to meet patient needs for a wide variety of spinal and musculoskeletal conditions. We are holistically oriented and only deal with nonsurgical options. Also, because we are well aware that proper treatment requires accurate diagnosis, we are well-known for our excellent diagnostic capabilities.
What Distinguishes Long Island Rehabilitation Clinics
While Long Island houses an enormous number of healthcare facilities, Long Island Rehabilitation is unique in a number of noticeable ways:
- Our doctors are physiatrists who focus on pain relief and restoration of function.
- Physiatrists are not surgeons; we think of invasive procedures only as a last resort
- Though we rely on sophisticated scans for diagnosis, our emphasis is on pragmatic methods of reducing pain and improving day-to-day function
- We are not only willing, but eager, to collaborate with other professionals, such as physical therapists, to bring our patients maximum relief
- We use both traditional and complementary medical techniques, such as acupuncture and herbal remedies, to get our patients up and running as quickly as possible
- We use therapeutic methods customized to meet your particular needs and we will always take your concerns and preferences into account
- In many, even most, cases, we will recommend a combination of therapies to provide the most dynamic results
The most distinctive aspect of our patient-doctor relationships is that our physicians are not aloof or arrogant. Rather, we pride ourselves on being accessible and transparent about what we are doing as well as about what we are trying to accomplish. At Long Island Rehabilitation Clinics, we are not interested in showing off our credentials or skill sets, but in healing our patients.
