Physical Therapy

There are several different types of restorative therapy treatments done at Manhattanville Rehabilitation & HealthCare Center. Firstly, there is a full program of restorative exercise geared toward strengthening and restoring the patient’s ambulatory status. In addition, there are ultrasound, TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and hydrotherapy treatments for pain relief. Residents suffering from edema are treated with intermittent compression.
We also have a maintenance PT program. Residents who participate in this program are seen two or three times a week and the purpose of this program is to maintain current level physical functioning, as opposed to restoring former levels of functioning. For these residents, there is also a mobility exercise group, held once a week for one hour. Our residents seem to enjoy this group very much, and the group setting provides an atmosphere of encouragement and motivation for the maintenance of general conditioning and joint mobility.

Occupational Therapy

Our restorative OT program is an intensive five day a week program where residents are given help in restoring their independence in eating, dressing, washing, grooming, and safely making transfers (i.e., wheelchair to bed). Residents are encouraged and assisted in learning to propel their wheel chairs throughout the faculty, and they are given exercises which improve the strength and range of motion in their arms. Emphasis is also placed on increasing attention, memory and concentration, all of which help create a greater potential for self-care, productivity and independence.
