Burke Launches Outpatient Orthopedic & Sports Therapy Site

Burke Rehabilitation has expanded its outpatient therapy services with the opening of a newly renovated site in the Billings Building, first floor, on its White Plains campus. The Billings Outpatient Orthopedic and Sports Therapy location serves patients with musculoskeletal and orthopedic diagnoses, including those in need of post-operative care.

The 3,400-square-foot space is brightly lit and open, providing an ideal environment for therapists to work one-on-one with individual patients for 45-minute sessions. Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation and then an individualized plan of therapy is implemented.

The Billings Outpatient Orthopedic and Sports Therapy site is outfitted with cardiovascular equipment including a treadmill, recumbent bicycle, upper arm ergometer, NuStep and an elliptical machine, as well as other strength training pieces. In addition, there is a Biodex balance system for patients to improve agility and balance. Therapists offer various modalities including moist heat therapy, cold therapy, ultrasound and electrotherapy, along with other therapy accessories to support overall strengthening, flexibility, balance and function.

“We are very proud to continue expansion of Outpatient Therapy Services on the main campus,” said Burke’s Supervisor of White Plains Outpatient Facilities Barrie Arth. “It is conveniently located adjacent to the Medical Specialists Practice, situated on our well-known White Plains campus, and offers plenty of free parking.” Arth continued, “We hope to serve patients whose needs range from sports injuries and post-operative care to the ‘weekend warrior.’ This includes individuals with chronic orthopedic and musculoskeletal conditions. Our goal is always to help patients reach their maximum potential and provide outstanding hands-on care.”

An appointment and a referral from a physician are required for patients to receive treatment. The location is staffed with highly trained physical therapists who specialize in treating musculoskeletal and orthopedic diagnoses.

The new addition complements Burke’s robust outpatient therapy programs located in communities throughout Westchester County and in the Bronx. Burke’s services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech, language and swallowing therapy, concussion management and other specialty therapies.
