We provide the treatments and services that help children address physical and emotional challenges.
After an illness or injury, children sometimes need help regaining physical strength, mobility, or skills. Children with developmental disorders may require ongoing therapy to help them achieve their full potential.
For these children, an important part of medical care includes rehabilitation therapy that focuses on the way their bodies move, the way their minds process information, and the way they interpret and create sound. Rusk Rehabilitation physiatrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, and speech–language pathologists provide these treatments for children at numerous Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Our pediatric rehabilitation team is supported by child life specialists, creative arts therapists, horticultural therapists, recreation therapists, social workers, and experts in integrative medicine who provide the additional care your child needs to deal with the social and emotional aspects of recovery.
Specialists from Rusk Rehabilitation treat children with the following conditions:
Some children start receiving rehabilitation care while they are still being cared for at one of our hospitals. Our team helps your child improve physical and cognitive skills so that he or she is ready to return home and resume school and other activities.
We offer outpatient pediatric rehabilitation for children who need ongoing therapy to continue their recovery or treatment. Physiatry, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, and psychology are provided on an outpatient basis.
For more than 25 years, U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” has ranked Rusk Rehabilitation as the best rehabilitation program in New York State and among the top 10 in the country.
Our pediatric experts provide the best care possible for children with conditions ranging from minor illnesses to complex, more serious conditions.
