Drake opens separate PT office

Drake Chiropractic has split off its physical therapy department, moving it to new space in Tallgrass Executive Office Park.

Office manager Rayleen Mermis said Kansas PT and Spine Rehab opened earlier this month at 8100 E. 22nd St., Building 2200-4. It is a general outpatient physical therapy clinic and specializes in the treatment of lower back conditions. The telephone number is 316-201-6445.

"We wanted to be able to broaden the types of conditions that we could treat, and we didn't have the space here to do that," Mermis said. Drake Chiropractic's office is at 154 S. Rock Road.

The physical therapy clinic has 1,875 square feet of space; Icon Structures was the general contractor for the remodeling.

Mermis said the clinic has a separate name to indicate that it provides a range of physical therapy services. "We didn't necessarily want the Drake Chiropractic name on that," she said. "It is a separate practice."

Physical therapist Kyle Welk and three other employees staff the clinic.
