Physical therapy (PT) is an accredited profession dedicated to serving patients with neuro-musculoskeletal injuries. The goal is to facilitate recovery of function to your desired level of activity. Emphasis is placed upon flexibility, strengthening, muscular endurance, balance, and pain relief.
We provide services primarily to the student population. Students come to our facility with a variety of concerns including ankle sprains, knee or shoulder pain, chronic neck or back pain, pain related to a car accident or computer use, sports related injuries, and post-surgical conditions.
Locations and Hours
Physical Therapy is located on the first floor of the Student Health Center (adjacent to the Eisenhower Parking Deck and the Bank of America Career Services Building off Bigler Road).
The hours of service during spring and fall semester are:
- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday: 8am - 5pm
- Wednesday: 9am - 5pm
You can obtain a PT prescription order from your UHS clinician or from your private health care provider. Direct access to physical therapy is also available. The Pennsylvania Physical Therapist Practice Act allows physical therapists to evaluate and treat patients meeting certain criteria for 30 days without a physician's order. However, students should check with their insurance company to verify that direct access is covered with their insurance plan.
There are separate fees for all physical therapy services. The fee depends on the type of therapy ordered by your clinician. Students are responsible for all charges.
