Orthopedic Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy

Rehabilitation therapy helps patients fully recover from an orthopedic injury or illness. Partners of The Institute of Orthopedic Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital offer both inpatient and outpatient physical and occupational therapy. Hospitalized patients receive therapy at bedside or at the dedicated rehabilitation unit's acute care or rehabilitation gym.

Occupational therapists help patients master daily activities, such as

  • transfers to and in the bathroom.
  • lower body dressing.
  • fine motor control.

Physical therapists help patients with the following:

  • Strengthening exercises
  • Range of motion activities
  • Learning to walk following surgery or injury

NYPBMH affiliate, METRO SPORTSMED®, offers outpatient physical and occupational therapy to

  • strengthen back, joint, and limb muscles.
  • improve range of motion by stretching soft tissues.
  • provide aerobic conditioning.
