Aquatic therapy is often used to improve physical functioning after surgery, injury, or a neurological impairment. Utilizing our Hydro Track® underwater treadmill, patients can safely perform exercise routines while reducing pressure on the body.
Balance Rehabilitation uses a customized, individualized exercise program to decrease dizziness, improve balance, and restore daily functional activities and safety.
Hand Therapy and Upper Extremity Rehabilitation addresses injuries and conditions of the hand, forearm, and shoulder. This includes post-op/trauma/repetitive strain injuries and splinting.
Lymphedema Therapy addresses swelling in arms and legs which may occur with certain types of cancer treatments and other chronic conditions. We use a hands-on approach with exercises to reduce pain and swelling while teaching patients how to properly control their own condition for a better quality of life.
Post-Concussion Care includes treatments aimed at improving balance, vision, and the ability to concentrate. In many cases, this post-concussion care is crucial to maximize recovery.
Vision Therapy involves a progressive program of exercises used to correct visual problems to improve reading and learning. It is executed by an occupational therapist working in collaboration with an eye care specialist.
Short Term Rehab
Sometimes even the simplest activities of daily life can be challenging after a serious illness, injury, or surgery. The Cortland Regional Nursing & Rehabilitative team has the resources to support you and your loved ones on the road to recovery, independence, and optimal health.
Under the guidance of our rehabilitation physician, our short-term rehabilitation team provides skilled nursing care and individualized therapy to help you regain mobility and self-care skills. Residents receive a combination of physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy, along with psychological counseling and social work services – all with the goal of helping patients regain and maintain their ability to live as independently as possible.
