Physical Therapy

If you or a loved one has suffered a stroke or fractured bone, had a knee or hip replaced, have a neurological condition such as Parkinson’s disease, or have a chronic illness that makes it hard for you to move from one place to another, your doctor may prescribe physical therapy. VNSNY physical therapists can help you regain mobility to make getting around your house—and getting back into your neighborhood—easier.

VNSNY combines the latest technology and research with hands-on care to ensure that you or your loved one gets the treatment needed. Our goal is to help you improve your strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination so you can:

  • Move in and out of bed or a chair.
  • Walk on level ground and navigate stairs or curbs.
  • Use a cane or walker safely and effectively.
  • Improve your posture and balance.
  • Conserve your energy and limit strain on joints and muscles.
  • Learn about fall prevention and exercise programs.

VNSNY therapists visit you at home and design a program specific to your needs. We’ll help you to develop the physical skills and the confidence necessary to regain independence. In addition, we will educate you and your caregivers about the goals of physical therapy, and answer questions and explain the best ways to achieve these goals.

Whether you hope to prevent a fall from occurring or need help getting back on your feet after a stroke or injury, VNSNY physical therapists provide the right care for you.

If you require more than one of our rehabilitation services, VNSNY occupational, physical, and speech therapists will work closely together to provide the best care possible so that you can be functioning and moving more quickly. We can also integrate rehabilitation therapy into other VNSNY services and programs, such as long-term care.
