Atkin Center for Outpatient Rehabilitation
The Atkin Center for Outpatient Rehabilitation (ACOR) provides multi-disciplinary rehabilitation services for adults, seniors and medically-complex patients, assisting them in remaining independent in their own homes. Our individualized treatment programs include:
- Physical therapy

- Orthopedic rehabilitation
- Neurological rehabilitation
- Low vision and functional vision services

For individuals experiencing difficulty swallowing, ACOR provides on-site Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluations of Swallowing (FEES). A certified Endoscopist, who is also a Speech Language Pathologist, completes an evaluation on the individual. The evaluation provides for a thorough assessment of the individual’s swallowing ability, determines appropriate treatment techniques and other management options. The FEES evaluation is key for individuals experiencing difficulty after:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Head injuries
- General neurological disorders
- Cognitive impairments
- Head and/or neck surgeries
Atkin Center for Outpatient Rehabilitation is proud to offer Bioness, an award-winning and innovative rehabilitation technology designed to benefit individuals who have been afflicted with neurological disorders, including stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, Cerebral Palsy and spinal cord injury. Bioness uses low-level electrical stimulation to help people regain mobility and independence, to improve quality of life and productivity. We are the only outpatient rehabilitation center from Rochester to Syracuse to offer both the NESS H200 Hand Rehabilitation System and the NESS L300 Foot Drop System. Bioness technology helped a local woman who was born with Cerebral Palsy regain her independence and her story was featured on WHEC TV. The Bioness systems have also been showcased on segments of The Today Show and Good Morning America, and featured in a story in USA Today.
We have partnered with Rochester Rehabilitation’s DriveOn program to help seniors drive safely, comfortably and stress-free. Together, our occupational therapists work with DriveOn’s experienced driver specialists to evaluate driving ability and create a customized driver training program to help you maintain your independence.
