The Center for Rehabilitation at Hudson Valley Hospital Center offers a wide range of physical and occupational therapies. Appointments can be made at the location of your choice. Among our specialized services:

Vestibular Rehabilitation: Vestibular problems -- including vertigo, dizziness and imbalance -- make daily life difficult, and contribute to falls and accidents. A combination of exercises to improve balance can help decrease feelings of dizziness. Patients are also educated on the best ways to manage symptoms so they can more safely engage in activities like climbing stairs and driving.

Vestibular Therapy is offered at our Hudson Valley Hospital Center and Croton locations.


Hand TherapyHand Therapy: Does it hurt to use the computer, swing a tennis racquet or even lift a cup of coffee? Hand therapy can help restore function and reduce pain in patients with conditions affecting the hands, wrists and elbows. Patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, tendon and nerve injuries, fractures, arthritis, and other conditions can all benefit. The program combines exercise, manual therapy and education to help patients increase motion, dexterity, and strength. Custom splinting is also available. Our team includes certified hand therapists – professionals who have completed advanced coursework and 4,000 or more hours in direct hand experience.

Hand Therapy is at PT & OT at HVHC.



Joint Replacement TherapyJoint Replacement Rehabilitation: Following replacements of knees or hips, physical therapy is essential to help patients regain mobility, strength and range of motion. A progressive exercise plan, combined with other therapies, can help strengthen muscles and ligaments around the joint replacement and reduce swelling. Some patients may also benefit from occupational therapy designed to help with activities such as bathing and dressing.

Joint Replacement Therapy is offered at Hudson Valley Hospital Center.


Lymphedema Therapy: Patients suffering from lymphedema – swelling that occurs when lymph fluid fails to drain properly – can benefit from an individualized therapy program. A combination of techniques, including exercise, compression bandaging and manual drainage, work together to reduce swelling, improve skin condition and get patients moving more comfortably. The therapy can address lymphedema related to trauma, cancers or vascular conditions.

Lymphedema Therapy is offered at  Hudson Valley Hospital Center .


Women’s Incontinence Therapy: Surgery isn’t the only answer for urinary incontinence. Our physical therapists are changing the lives of women dealing with incontinence with therapy programs that may include exercises to strengthen pelvic muscles, bladder training and biofeedback. A therapy program can reduce embarrassing “accidents” and help women regain control they may have lost because of childbirth, aging or certain traumas.

Women’s Incontinence Therapy is offered at  Hudson Valley Hospital Center.

You want to “get back to normal.” We can help.

At The Center for Rehabilitation at Hudson Valley Hospital Center, physical therapists design personalized programs to help patients regain skills and get back to everyday life.

Professional. Dedicated. Compassionate. Convenient. That’s how patients describe The Center – and it’s no wonder. Our highly trained physical therapists are part of The Hospital for Special Surgery’s Rehabilitation Network, and hold prestigious accreditations attesting to their expertise. Each team member offers specialized skills, significant experience and a dedication to improving patients’ lives.

Patients come to us with orthopedic injuries and knee or hip replacements; back problems, arthritis, cardiac conditions and more. They are even looking for help with dizziness, vertigo and women’s incontinence – problems many physical therapy offices don’t handle. We do – because The Center is large enough to have therapists with years of experience in many different areas.

A physical therapist will work with you to find the techniques, treatments and exercises that can best help you. And, because we are a hospital-based program, you can be confident that we have met stringent requirements set by the state and national accrediting groups.

Our main location at the hospital is a new, state-of-the-art physical therapy facility located just steps away from parking. Offering easy access to patients, the facility operates an extended schedule – hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. - that makes it easy to fit therapy into your life.

 Our three locations in Westchester and Putnam counties provide physical therapy, including joint replacement and sports rehabilitation therapy. Specialized programs, including occupational, women’s incontinence, hand and lymphedema management; and vestibular rehabilitation are available in some locations. Most insurance plans are accepted at all locations.
