Physical Therapy

In our physical and occupational rehabilitation department, we use a team approach, combining our expertise and experience, to deliver high quality care to rehabilitate patients with post-surgical joint replacements, neck and back pain, sprains, strains, degenerative joint disease and fractures.

Our primary objective is to assist each patient in achieving his or her highest level of function. We work together with the patient and their physician to create a customized plan of care to fit the needs of the patient. We use a hands-on approach in conjunction with a wide range of treatment modalities, in a friendly, therapeutic, and compassionate environment. Our occupational therapists can also provide customized splinting services for upper extremity conditions.

We strive to build strong relationships with physicians, case managers and insurance companies to provide the most efficient and effective treatment outcomes for all patients.

Our therapists are specially trained in myofascial release, sports performance and strength training, musculoskeletal injuries and rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction and shoulder repairs. Our physical therapists are members of the American Physical Therapy Association and our Occupational Therapists are Board Certified with the National Board of Occupational Therapy. All of our therapists are licensed in New York State.

You’ll appreciate our friendly, compassionate staff, our hassle free scheduling, our Saturday and evening hours and our easy-to-access bilingual facility.
