Physical Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine at the SMART Center, Oceanside
If an injury or health condition is keeping you from reaching your physical goals, ask your physician to refer you to the experts at South Nassau Communities Hospital’s SMART Center. Our physicians and therapists make rehabilitation our focus, so your focus can be on returning to or improving physical activity at home, work, school and sports.
SMART stands for Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Therapy. At our 8,500-square-foot center in Oceanside, N.Y., we’ve assembled — under one roof — advanced equipment and a team of experts who specialize in a wide range of therapies, including physical, occupational, speech and sports medicine therapy. We use our knowledge and experience to create a treatment plan to help you return to activities, improve your physical performance and prevent re-injury. And overseeing every patient’s care is our on-site physiatrist, a physician with specialized training and board certification in rehabilitation medicine.
In addition to our broad range of personalized care, our staff has created specific programs for a number of health conditions, including treatment of lymphedema (swelling, often caused by chemotherapy); for improving balance; and therapy for patients with brain injury, stroke, paralysis or weakness of the arms; and amputee care, including our Amputee Walking School. These programs are just part of the broad range of expert care and education we provide to over 16,000 people every year.
