Back, Neck and Spinal Pain Rehabilitation with Physical Therapy

Dr. Mandarino knows that no two patients have the exact same types of back pain. There are some common and predictable patterns. How these patterns present themselves, however, will always be unique to each individual. He provides a thorough physical therapy analysis and requests openness when patients disclose pertinent information regarding their pain in order to correctly determine what treatment to provide them. He analyzes any movement dysfunctions you may have in order to properly diagnose and provide you with the best treatment and management strategies.


Mandarino Chiropractic Works with Sports Injuries to Help Athletes of All Levels Get Back to their Active Lifestyle

Athletes understand the demands of participating in their given sport. Putting their bodies through rigorous activities day after day can result in painful sprains, strains, tears and overuse injuries. The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include over-training, repetitive motions, failure to warm up properly, forceful impacts and not allowing old injuries to heal properly. These injuries can happen in countless ways depending on what activity or sport is being performed. It is important to take precautionary measures when it comes to physical therapy rehabilitation. Seeing Dr. Mandarino can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can prevent such future injuries.


Physical Therapy Helps Improve Flexibility and Balance

Good flexibility and range of motion are very important as they enable people to perform most daily activities that may otherwise be taken for granted, like bending down to pick up an object or turning to look at something behind you. Improving a person’s flexibility also reduces the risk of injury when participating in sports or other physical activities. Dr. Mandarino will work with you to either maintain or improve your current flexibility level. He will also help to preserve your joints’ range of motion or improve on where there may be problem areas for you.


Problems with balance make it difficult for people to maintain stable and upright positions when standing, walking, and even sitting. Balance can be difficult after injury as well because the body often works to compensate for weak areas. This means something as simple as normal, daily activities can ultimately throwing the body off-balance in some way. When someone has an injury, the ability to balance is sometimes slowed down and needs to be re-trained at our Staten Island physical therapy facility.
