Inpatient & Outpatient Therapy
We provide physical, occupational and speech therapy services. While other nursing facilities are required to provide these services, Brooklyn Community Estates stands out. We’re different because our therapy includes state-of-the-art equipment and therapy programs that aren’t typically offered by other providers. Our philosophy is to provide comprehensive treatments to help each patient recover quickly and function at their highest possible level.
Our therapists utilize advanced treatment devices to reduce pain and swelling and to help damaged and injured body parts heal more quickly. Frequently therapy patients are treated with a patented form of electrical stimulation, also used by many professional sports teams, to help increase muscle strength.
