White Plains, NY - September 29: On October 13, 2017, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital will host a free open house for the public at its Outpatient Clinic located in Armonk, NY (99 Business Park Drive).

Burke licensed physical therapists will be on site to speak about services offered, and attendees will be able to tour the clinic.
“The demand for outpatient therapy services is increasing at a rapid rate. Our Armonk Outpatient Clinic offers the same excellent standard of care that the main Burke campus offers with more available appointments in a setting closer to home,” explained Burke President and CEO Jeffrey Menkes. “We are excited to be able to showcase our facility at this open house.”
As a leader in physical rehabilitation services for more than 100 years, Burke now offers physical therapy at its newest Outpatient Clinic in Armonk, located next to White Plains Hospital Medical and Wellness Center. Whether you have finished an inpatient rehabilitative stay and need to continue therapy for your injury or recovery in an outpatient setting, or are someone with a new injury who needs to begin physical therapy, the Armonk Outpatient Clinic has experienced therapists eager to help you with minimal wait time for appointments.
The Armonk Outpatient Clinic also offers vestibular therapy, which helps address symptoms of dizziness, vertigo, visual blurring, nausea, imbalance and anxiety as a result of damage to the parts of the inner ear or brain that are part of the vestibular system.
The newest addition to the services offered at the Armonk Outpatient Clinic are massage therapy services. For a fee, patients and the general public will be able to receive Swedish, Meditative, Deep Tissue or Reflexology Foot massages. The benefits of massage therapy go far beyond pampering; it has gained recognition for its medical application and physical benefits. For more information on specific massage therapies offered, contact the Armonk Outpatient Clinic directly.
“With the growing amount of locations and services available to patients needing outpatient therapy, it is important to find a site that is convenient and excels in service delivery. Our outpatient clinic in Armonk is located right off highway 684 and Route 22, easily accessible for residents of central and northern Westchester County,” said Burke Vice President, Outpatient Services Steven Tisser, PT, MBA.
A physician’s diagnosis and prescription is needed to utilize the outpatient services at the clinic.
