Starting Monday September 14th the Plymouth State University Doctorate of Physical Therapy is offering free physical therapy to all students.  

Founded by students, Panther PT provides free physical therapy services to the PSU and surrounding community under the supervision of a certified physical therapist at no cost to the students or the community at large. Doctoral students in Plymouth State University’s DPT program administer and manage the clinic. Clinical assistant professors supervise and guide students while they assess patients in order to build and improve their clinical decision-making abilities. Located right on the second floor of Samuel Read Hall Building (215) on PSU’s campus, the clinic is already making an incredible impact. 

Pro bono clinics offer services including athletic injuries, work- related injuries, neurological impairments (Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, stroke, spinal cord injuries), balance & coordination deficits, ergonomic injuries/ evaluations, and post- surgical rehabilitation.  

Providing a vibrant scholarly community for physical therapy, Plymouth State University provides an educated community through teaching, research, service, and practice contributing to the American Physical Therapy Association’s vision of “transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience” is the Department of Physical Therapy’s mission. In the Department of Physical Therapy, the emphasis is on educating physical therapists to serve the community in the fields of movement and rehabilitation, to provide competent care as autonomous providers, leaders, collaborative team members and innovators while being respectful and socially responsible.
