These conditions involve injury to the skeleton, muscles, tendons and their supporting soft tissue. Some of the most common diagnoses include:

 

  • Neck and back pain
  • Shoulder tendonitis and/or impingement
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hip pain
  • Knee and ankle sprains
  • Fractures

We also see patients post operatively. Post-operative diagnoses include:

  • Spinal fusion
  • Total shoulder replacements
  • Hip and knee replacements
  • Limb amputation and Orthotic care

Getting our residents back to their utmost functional, everyday life is Fort Tryon Center’s number one goal. Our orthopedic rehab specialists are here to help patients prepare for the next step in their lives.

Upon admission, our therapists perform a comprehensive evaluation in which they evaluate the patients posture, range of motion, functional movement, strength, pain at rest and pain during activity. They work with the patient to develop an individualized orthopedic rehab treatment plan based on each patient’s specific goals for returning to their pre-injured state.

Treatment is provided by a team of the area’s most experienced rehabilitation professionals. From the day of admission, patients and their families work actively with the rehabilitation team to achieve their physiological goals as well as to prepare a plan for discharge.
