Rusk Rehabilitation
We provide inpatient and outpatient recovery resources to help people lead full and rewarding lives.

Rusk Rehabilitation Brooklyn at 60th Street, operated through the Family Health Centers at NYU Langone, provides outpatient therapy to people recovering from musculoskeletal and neurological injuries. Our team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech–language pathologists, and an audiologist.

Recognition

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 programs in the country.

Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy

Physical therapy is provided for people who have the following conditions:

Our certified hand therapy team helps patients with injuries or illnesses of the hand to regain strength, dexterity, and function. Occupational therapists provide treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome, dislocations, fractures, osteoarthritis, joint contractures, nerve injuries, scars, sprains, strains, tendinitis, ulnar nerve compression, and wounds.

Speech–Language Pathology and Audiology

Speech–language pathology services are available for adults with speech and language disorders, swallowing disorders, voice disorders, and cognitive disorders due to conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, various neurological disorders, and head and neck cancer.

Children with autism and other developmental delays can receive speech–language pathology services. We also provide therapy for children who have articulation or phonological disorders and receptive-expressive language disorders. Premature babies often have feeding issues, and we can provide therapy to help with swallowing.

We also provide audiology services to diagnose hearing loss in adults and children. When hearing is affected, a person’s speech and language skills can be impacted as well. The audiologist performs several different tests to determine the cause of hearing loss and its severity, and in communication with your physician can provide a referral to a specialist if needed.

Audiological tests performed include:

  • complete audiological evaluation for adults and children
  • videonystagmography to determine the cause of dizziness
  • otoacoustic emissions to test hearing
  • auditory brainstem response testing for children
