Catholic Health's AthletiCare location in Orchard Park is home to a number of specialized rehabilitation and exercise therapy programs. By offering rehab that is geared toward an individual's specific medical condition, including amputation, vestibular problems, back pain, and peripheral artery disease, we are able to provide better care for our patients.
Physical Therapy– The physical therapy and rehabilitation services offered by Catholic Health use a team-based approach and the latest technology to provide innovative treatment options to restore your health. PT techniques can help your body rebuild strength, relieve pain, and relearn specific skills.
Aquatic Therapy– Our aquatic therapy program is ideal for patients who are recovering from spinal, orthopedic, or neurological conditions. Exercising in the water allows for more range-of-motion than normal PT exercises, while reducing pain and swelling.
Vestibular & Balance Therapy– Abnormalities within the vestibular system, or inner ear, can cause symptoms such as vertigo, general dizziness, balance problems, and nausea. Vestibular therapy often involves manual repositioning techniques that offer relief to patients suffering from these symptoms.
Occupational Therapy– Skilled occupational therapy treatments focus on maximizing function so patients can return to daily activities including self-care, work, and recreation.
Hand Therapy– Specializing physical therapists are available for patients dealing with a variety of injuries and conditions. An initial evaluation will decide the length and frequency of your treatment program.
ACL Injury Prevention– For people who lead active lifestyles, an ACL injury is enough to sideline you from doing what you love. Our therapists can work with you to provide tools and techniques that strengthen and protect the muscles in your knee – keeping you in the game.
Concussion Testing & Assessment– Concussion testing and assessments can help providers make a diagnosis and guide return-to-activity decisions, which is quite important for patients who play a sport or lead active lifestyles. Concussion symptoms are usually rather prominent, resulting from trauma or an extreme force acting upon the head.
Cardiac Outpatient Rehabilitation– The cardiac rehabilitation program provides a support system for patients recovering from a cardiac event or procedure. Our focus is helping you resume your daily routine and activities, while teaching disease management through diet, medication, and aerobic exercise.
Peripheral Artery Disease - Supervised Exercise– Though PAD is commonly characterized by leg aches and pains, studies show that exercise can help manage disease symptoms and progression. We offer supervised exercise programs for PAD patients, so health can be monitored throughout a workout.
Physical Therapy for Back Pain– Chronic or recurrent back pain can be downright disruptive to day-to-day activities and may ultimately affect quality of life. Based upon an initial evaluation, physical therapy can target problem areas and significantly reduce tension for those suffering from back pain.
Fall Risk Assessment and Fall Prevention– Fall risk assessment and prevention measures are available as a service for patients considered at-risk for accidental slips, trips, and falls. Physical therapists can evaluate factors that may affect balance and neurological function, and then recommend treatment to manage your stability.
Free parking is available for patients and visitors of AthletiCare Orchard Park in the lot next to the building, which can be accessed from either Southwestern Boulevard or Taylor Road.
