Programs in Physical Therapy Establish Faculty Practice
July 1, 2019
The Columbia University Programs in Physical Therapy are pleased to announce the establishment of the Columbia University Physical Therapy Faculty Practice in Tarrytown, NY.
Columbia Physical Therapy will specialize in the conservative management of musculoskeletal conditions and pre or post-operative orthopedic care, provided by Columbia University faculty, rooted in evidence-based clinical experience, delivering one-on-one personalized care.
Drawing from the rich heritage of the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons Programs in Physical Therapy, our faculty practice is deeply embedded in academic education, research, and clinical care across diverse physical therapy specialties. Joining the Physical Therapy faculty is Rami Said, PT, DPT, MEng, who has been named the director of the Faculty Practice at Tarrytown and is also an Instructor of Rehabilitation and Regenerative Medicine. A graduate of the DPT program, Dr. Said is a published, Board-Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist with many years of experience in orthopedics, ranging from the conservative management of all musculoskeletal conditions to simple and complex post-operative surgeries. He joins Dr. Rebekah Wallach, PT, DPT, a certified Schroth therapist specializing in the treatment of patients of all ages with scoliosis.
Dr. Said recently remarked, “We are excited to join the talented Columbia physicians and other practitioners serving the Westchester community, providing high-quality physical therapy care in a convenient location. We look forward to working with our patients to help them improve their health and achieve their goals!”
The Columbia Physical Therapy Faculty Practice is dedicated to providing a truly extraordinary patient experience by creating an individualized treatment plan that targets each person’s specific goals. Additionally, Columbia Physical Therapy will serve as a clinical education site for our DPT students and a resource for collaboration in the many research projects underway at Columbia University.
