A physical therapist is a licensed health care professional who examines and evaluates a patient's condition and then plans and administers treatments to promote optimal health. Physical therapists seek to relieve pain, improve the body’s movement and function, maintain cardiopulmonary function, restore, maintain and promote optimal physical function; and limit disabilities resulting from injury or disease.
At Rehab-Pro, we treat the entire range of orthopedic conditions and spinal problems as well as vestibular dysfunction, balance disorders and dizziness, and men’s and women’s health, with a goal to restore our patients to optimal health and well-being.
Our senior physical therapist, Iwona Tybinkowska MPT, recently left her position as Director of Rehabilitation Services at the DOJ Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in the Bronx, NY, where she had managed rehab therapy services for 13 years, to devote her full time to her Rockland and Bergen County Rehab-Pro patients. Her training includes a specialization in Women’s Health, dealing with pelvic floor dysfunction, bowel and bladder incontinence and biofeedback training, and has extended her specialization to men’s health issues as well.
Ms. Tybinkowska recommends the information on this APTA website describing the benefits of physical therapy for women’s health issues.
Lymphedema is a swelling of a body part, most often the extremities. It can also occur in the face, neck, abdomen or genitals. Ms. Tybinkowska, a certified lymphedema therapist, recommends the information on this Klose Training website describing the causes and treatment of lymphedema.
Whole-body vibration has been shown to improve mobility, knee-extension strength and balancing ability, and to decrease fall risk in older women. Vibration may also have beneficial acute and/or chronic training effect on strength and power enhancement in athletes. Studies show that whole-body vibration is useful for increasing range of motion of hamstrings, for treating chronic fatigue syndrome, to improve postural stability in stroke, Parkinson's and MS, to enhance glycemic control in type 2 diabetes, and to prevent bone fractures and osteoporosis in frail people.
