Physical Therapy and Athletic Training

Our physical therapists and athletic trainers provide comprehensive rehabilitation to enable students to overcome pain, dysfunction and disability. Our staff work with students on a one-on-one basis to determine all of the factors involved in an injury/disability, whether its related to overuse syndromes, postural imbalances, trauma, athletic injuries, acute or chronic pain, or managing pre/post-surgical rehabilitation. We work collaboratively with all members of a patient’s healthcare team to ensure excellent communication and follow through, and develop an individualized treatment plan to meet each patient’s treatment goals.

A referral is not required to receive treatment. However, we highly recommend that you get an in-house referral for our services to maximize your potential for insurance reimbursement (even if you have a referral from an outside medical provider). Additionally, your insurance company may require a referral and/or pre-authorization before you begin treatment. Please contact your insurance company directly for more information. To get a referral, call 541-346-2770 to set up an appointment with a sports medicine doctor or a nurse practitioner in the University Health Center.

Acute Care

We don’t want you to suffer with pain and/or an unstable injury. We have brief, same-day treatment slots available to help reduce your pain and stabilize your injury. You can come see us directly; however, if your injury is serious, we will work with our medical staff to establish a diagnosis before treatment.

Ongoing Rehabilitation

We offer ongoing rehabilitation on a scheduled basis. During your initial appointment, you will receive a complete evaluation and initial treatment for a flat fee of $75. The cost of follow-up treatment varies according to the length and complexity of your session. If you have concerns about the cost of care, please let us know prior to your appointment; we can often create a customized treatment plan that will help address your financial needs. Types of treatment available include:

  • Manual therapy
  • Therapeutic and functional exercise
  • Sports specific training
  • Postural re-education
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Trigger point release
  • Myofascial release
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Strain-counterstrain
  • Gait analysis
  • Custom orthotics fabrication
  • Taping
  • Bracing
  • Modalities (pain/inflammatory reducing treatments)

Physical Therapy/Athletic Training is open Monday through Friday, with some closures during term breaks. We are located on the second floor of the health center. To make an appointment call 541-346-4401 or stop by the clinic.
