Injury and Rehabilitation Care

Injury rehabilitation is designed to assist students in recovering from injury through the use of exercise, manual therapies and modalities. Attention is also given to identifying underlying causes of injury to prevent re-injury and to enable students to function optimally. The Student Health Center Injury Rehabilitation Clinic is located in the Student Health Center Annex and is available by prescription from a Student Health Center provider. Rehabilitation services are provided by Lori deKubber MEd., LAT, ATC, an athletic trainer with extensive skill and experience in rehabilitation techniques.

If further specialized rehabilitation is required, Student Health Center providers can also make a referral to an off-campus physical therapist or other medical provider as needed.
