WELCOME TO THE PHYSICAL THERAPY CLINIC

Doctor of Physical Therapy Program

The UW-Stevens Point Physical Therapy Clinic provides both diagnostic and intervention services for individuals with movement dysfunctions and musculoskeletal pain conditions. Doctor of Physical Therapy students, under the supervision of our licensed clinical staff, gain experience with both physical therapy assessment and intervention. Together our team will perform an examination and then provide treatment recommendations to improve movement, reduce or manage pain, restore function, and prevent disability.

In most instances, clients receive a physical therapy examination, treatment recommendations, and 1 or 2 follow-up visits. If our staff believes that additional physical therapy would be beneficial, a recommendation will be made to pursue PT at another local PT clinic. Clients who do not have the ability to pay for PT services elsewhere may receive additional visits.
