Overview

Physical therapy at Northwell Health Rehabilitation Network aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments, disabilities or recovering from an accident, illness or surgery. The licensed physical therapists are experienced in the latest rehabilitation techniques and will work with each patient to design an individualized treatment plan specifically for their unique needs.  Whether the goal is to speed recovery, decrease pain or return to activities – or a combination of these goals – the physical therapists provide patients with the education, support and motivation that they need to succeed.

Services offered by the team of physical therapists include:

Coordination across specialties

The physical therapists collaborate with colleagues throughout the health system. For patients in a hospital setting, the therapists coordinate with hospital-based physicians and staff to transition patients from the inpatient setting to other areas of care. They also work with patient’s physicians in fields including orthopaedics, neurology, medical and surgical oncology, rheumatology, pediatrics and vascular surgery to coordinate a patient’s past and ongoing care with their rehabilitation. Within the rehab setting, physical therapists may work closely with occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists and/or neuropsychologists to provide a comprehensive care plan for patients.
