The Department of Physical Therapy at Lebanon Valley College is proud to announce the Grand Opening of "C.U.R.E." (Compassionate Undenied Rehabilitation Experience) C.U.R.E. provides free physical therapy treatment for referred patients of the Lebanon Free Clinic, operated by Water Street Health Services, and for patients of Volunteers in Medicine Free Health Clinic. The clinic at LVC is run by a team of student volunteers under the supervision of LVC advisors Dr. Stan Dacko and Dr. Katie Oriel. Each physical therapy session is overseen by a licensed physical therapist.

What is Physical Therapy?
According to the American Physical Therapy Association, “Physical therapists are experts in the ‘science of healing and the art of caring.’” Physical therapists help people return to activities and work that a person is not currently able to participate in due to pain, injury, or other conditions. Physical therapists work with people who have ailments such as (but not limited to) muscle strains, low back pain, joint replacements, strokes, shoulder pain, as well as other musculoskeletal or neurologic disorders.

What to expect:
At LVC’s C.U.R.E Student Run Free Clinic, care will be provided by physical therapy students in their final three years of LVC’s doctoral program in physical therapy under direct supervision of licensed physical therapists. Treatments will include hands on care given by students paired with exercises to address pain, mobility, and loss of function. Each client will have a program specific to his or her unique needs with treatments including stretching, strengthening, pain management, and aerobic exercise.
