The George Fox University Physical Therapy Community Clinic shares a common mission with the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. We strive to meet the health and wellness needs of our community through innovative practice, passionate commitment, the pursuit of excellence and generous service. Our founding vision and primary goal is to continually serve the needs of those without access to physical therapy through our pro-bono clinic.
Orthopedic and Sports Medicine
Our therapists find joy in helping you move better than ever. We treat the continuum of patients from those who enjoy an easy pace of life to the professional athlete in need of advanced interventions. Our therapists are trained to address all orthopedic conditions from over-use wear and tear to after-surgery cases.
Every child loves to play exuberantly – to move more and to laugh more, regardless of obstacles before them. Our therapists combine cutting-edge expertise with their own love of play to create new possibilities for children and their families. We provide therapy for children of all ages, with all levels of abilities and all types of diagnoses, opening our community up to what is really possible.
We offer rehabilitation for those who have experienced a cardiac event or who have had cardiac-related surgery. We also provide therapy for persons with lung-related disorders such as COPD. Our therapists utilize state-of-the-art EKG/ECG equipment to monitor the vital capacity of patients during their therapy sessions to assure safety and to customize treatment programs.
Center for Health and Wellness
You don’t have to be broken to benefit from the knowledge of a physical therapist. We are committed to meeting the health and wellness needs of our community in order to keep our members strong now and well into the future. The therapists in our clinic offer classes and educational sessions on topics such as nutrition, exercise, pain and stress management, and smoking cessation.
We provide pro-bono services as part of our mission to meet the health and wellness needs of our community. Our services are offered free of charge to persons who do not have physical therapy coverage on their insurance plan, do not have insurance, or their physical therapy coverage has been exhausted. Please call Marcey at 503-554-2454 for more information.
We are an out-of-network provider for most insurances. We collect fees at the time of service and do not bill insurance. Our staff will gladly assist you in determining your out-of-network benefits and assist you in submitting claim forms to your insurance company for fees paid in the clinic. Please call Marcey at 503-554-2454 for more information.
