Physical therapists are health care professionals who address the needs of patients and clients by helping them restore, maintain, and attain optimal physical function.
- Hands for Health - Physical Therapy (PT) Clinic - Hands for Health (HfH) serves members of the greater Mount Pleasant community who are uninsured, or otherwise unable to pay for needed PT. Hands-for-Health is staffed by graduate students and faculty from the Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) Program who are licensed physical therapists.
- Fall & Balance Clinic - CMU's Fall and Balance Clinic focuses on fall prevention assessment and rehabilitation for balance disorders, as well as those with medical conditions that predispose them to risks for falling. Audiology and Physical Therapy clinicians work together to assess patients needs and develop an individualized care plan.
