Rehabilitation Medicine provides timely, high quality evaluations and therapeutic interventions to treat a variety of disabilities. Our main goal is to help patients function at their maximum potential.
Physical Therapy at The Brooklyn Hospital Center
Physical Therapy (PT) provides patients with evaluation and treatment of disabilities, injuries, diseases, and other conditions using physical, chemical, and mechanical means. Some of these modalities include--but are not limited to--heat, cold, light, air, water, sound, electricity, massage, mobilization and therapeutic exercises with or without assistive devices.
We also specialize in the performance and interpretation of tests and measurements to assess patho-physiological, patho-mechanical, and developmental deficits of human systems to determine treatment and assist in diagnosis and prognosis.
Occupational Therapy at The Brooklyn Hospital Center
Occupational therapy (OT) provides customized treatment programs that help individuals achieve independence in their daily lives. OT provides assessments and treatment for work performance skills, as well as recommendations and training in the use of adaptive equipment to replace lost function.
