Burke Restorative Neurology Clinic

The Burke Restorative Neurology Clinic provides an individualized exercise program using state of the art robotic devices appropriate for individuals with neurologic impairments or wheelchair bound, who want to maintain or improve their motor recovery, cardiovascular endurance and muscular stamina. Our staff has qualifications ranging from certifications by nationally and internationally recognized medical organizations to master’s degrees and doctorate degrees in physical and occupational therapy. 

The Burke Restorative Neurology Clinic is not standardized therapy and medical insurance does not cover membership charges.  The Burke Restorative Neurology Clinic is a self-pay program. 

All prospective members will be pre-screened to determine if a caregiver is required during the therapy session to assist the participant with their exercise program or self care needs.   A physician approval is required by all participants.
