The mission of Burke's Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program is to provide you with care and treatment at any point in your orthopedic surgery or injury process. As a leader in orthopedic rehabilitation for over a century, Burke now offers patients the opportunity to be seen and receive the same level of care in an outpatient setting.
Whether you have suffered an acute musculoskeletal injury, have already undergone orthopedic surgery, or are in need of one or more surgeries in the future, Burke’s Orthopedic Rehabilitation team can help prepare you pre-operatively (PREHAB) as well as optimize recovery post-surgery to help you get back to your daily life. O
Burke physicians are trained to treat patients suffering from musculoskeletal system disorders, including arthritis, osteoporosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, rotator cuff syndrome, bursitis, foot and ankle disorders and many others. Outpatient orthopedic rehabilitative medical treatment can benefit those suffering from pain or injuries to the knee, shoulder, hip, elbow or ankle. Burke’s outpatient physician practice offers diagnostic testing and treatment for patients suffering from symptoms of these disorders, and we work closely with our local orthopedic surgical colleagues to ensure the best continuity of orthopedic care possible.
Services and Treatments
Incorporating a variety of treatments and therapies, Burke's Orthopedic Rehabilitation team offers services for patients in preparation for or after an orthopedic surgery, or related to an orthopedic injury or musculoskeletal disorder. Services and treatments offered include:
Acupuncture: Patients can find relief from chronic pain with acupuncture. This traditional Chinese medicine healing technique is available by licensed acupuncturists at Burke. Acupuncture is known to reduce pain in some patients. Acupoints (specific anatomic sites on the body) are stimulated with the insertion of a fine needle into the skin. Based on some research, acupuncture may have positive effects on the body’s nervous, endocrine, immune, cardiovascular and digestive systems, and is now covered by many insurance policies.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound: A musculoskeletal ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that uses a small probe and gel on the skin outside of the body to generate an image of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue inside the body. A trained Burke physician will perform an ultrasound to help diagnose and treat a patient’s musculoskeletal medical condition.
Nerve blocks: Burke patients suffering from acute neuropathic pain in a particular part of the body may benefit from an evaluation by a trained Burke physician to be considered for a nerve block. This procedure blocks pain through a specific nerve, thereby reducing pain in a particular region of the body.
Peripheral joint injections: Burke physicians with advanced training may treat patients suffering from pain and inflammation of the joints due to acute or overused injuries or medical conditions by injecting medication directly into the problem area. Joint injections are a viable alternative for patients who elect not to have surgery or have a health condition that prohibits them from surgery.
Percutaneous tenotomy: Trained Burke physicians perform percutaneous tenotomies for patients suffering from pain in their muscles and tendons. During this outpatient based image guided procedure, medication is injected into and around the painful tendon, thereby reducing the chronic pain of tendonitis.
Therapy: Development of a comprehensive therapy treatment plan with physical and occupational therapies as indicated.
