Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine
Our skilled staff has over 100 years of combined experience treating overuse syndromes, postural imbalances, trauma, athletic injuries, acute or chronic pain and managing pre/post-surgical rehabilitation. We strive to provide the highest quality, comprehensive rehabilitation to enable students to overcome pain, dysfunction and disability. Our physical therapists, athletic trainers, massage therapists and acupuncturist work with students on a one-on-one basis to determine all of the factors involved in an injury/disability and develop an individualized treatment plan to meet each patient’s treatment goals. We work collaboratively with all members of a patient’s healthcare team to ensure excellent communication and follow through.
Energy Healing is also available within the Physical Therapy/Sports Medicine Department. Jude Kehoe is a Licensed Practical Nurse, Healing Touch Certified Practitioner and Meditation Instructor who works with patients one on one in a quiet, soothing environment.

Physical Therapy/Athletic Training:
- Acute Care: We don't want you to suffer with pain and/or an unstable injury. We have brief, walk-in treatment slots throughout the day 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 come speak with us as we can often create a customized treatment plan that will help address your financial needs.
Our licensed massage therapists specialize in relaxation and treatment specific massage and can modify the session to meet your specific needs. If you are also receiving physical therapy or athletic training, they will work closely with your therapist(s) to provide you with collaborative and comprehensive care. Our massage services are offered in a quiet, rejuvenating environment with soft lighting, music and a heated table to maximize your relaxation and comfort.
Massage therapy is offered in 30, 45 and 60 minute appointments and costs $30, $45 and $60 respectively.
Acupuncture services include traditional acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, Tuina and Gua Sha. Not all of these treatment techniques use needles. Acupuncture can be a complementary treatment to other physical modalities (physical therapy, athletic training, massage, etc.) in which case, your team will work together to ensure a comprehensive approach. It is also an effective stand-alone treatment for addressing a range of issues including general musculoskeletal injuries, stress, anxiety, women’s health issues and addiction.
One-on-one, private sessions take place in a relaxing treatment space. These sessions are tailored to each student's individual needs. Sessions are 45 minutes and cost $60.
The health center also offers group acupuncture. Group acupuncture focuses on stress reduction, and incorporates therapeutic quiet time. It's offered every Friday from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at University Health Center. The cost is $15 per session, billed to your student account. Call 541-346-4401 to reserve your seat.
