Physical Therapy

Now you can recover from an accident, injury, or medical procedure faster and with less stress. That’s because Cayuga Medical Center offers the type of rehabilitation you might require within a short drive from home. The staff and the atmosphere will make you feel like you’re among friends and neighbors.

The level of skill of our physical therapists are second to none. You can put your confidence in our fully trained and licensed rehabilitation professionals. Each is a specialist, with proven competencies in his or her field. In addition to state licensure-each therapist completes yearly continuing education to further their knowledge. Some specialty areas include orthopedics, lymphedema, osteoporosis, women’s health, sports medicine, vestibular, ergonomics, and McKenzie spinal rehabilitation.

What sets our physical therapy apart, beyond the expertise and quality of our services, is how we deliver them. It’s very much a one-on-one relationship. We strive to understand your challenges and work with you to set and reach common goals. Your therapist will create a program custom-tailored to your needs to help you recover as quickly as possible. Our department believes in caring for the “whole patient”, too. We work closely with doctors and other healthcare professionals as an interdisciplinary team that provides an unsurpassed continuity of care.

Collaborations

University of Rochester Medical Center

Cayuga Medical Center has teamed up with the University of Rochester Medical Center and specifically URMC Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, one of the largest, most comprehensive orthopaedic practices in the region. With nearly forty board-certified or board-qualified doctors, URMC offers every subspecialty in the field of orthopaedics and sees more than 180,000 patients per year.

The URMC physicians conduct research and develop and use the latest methods to treat orthopaedic conditions in adults and children. The department provides national leadership in orthopaedics and continues to be one of the top NIH (National Institutes of Health) funded programs in the country.

Cayuga Medical Center’s seven board-certified orthopaedic surgeons all have subspecialty training. The purpose of working collaboratively with URMC is to provide our community with easy access to a broader range of orthopaedic services. Through this collaboration our orthopaedic surgeons have the ability to consult with, or refer to, URMC doctors with different areas of expertise. The goal is to ensure that every patient receives the highest quality of orthopaedic care possible.

Ithaca College

We collaborate with Ithaca College faculty for our residency and fellowship programs. Many of our therapists teach, on some level, at the college sharing their expertise with the next generation of therapists.

This relationship benefits therapy staff, faculty, students, continuing education participants, and patients by enhancing knowledge of current best practices.
