Clinicians provide evaluation and treatment for many conditions, including stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, amputation, traumatic brain injury, and Parkinson’s disease. Interventions include individually designed programs to promote maximum function.
The clinic offers individual and group therapy sessions weekly. Sessions follow the Nazareth College semester schedule. Student clinicians also provide clients with home exercise plans to further physical improvement while not in therapy.
Therapy services are provided by students in the doctor of physical therapy professional program under the direct supervision of licensed physical therapist faculty, according to the standards of the New York State Office of the Professions.
