Physical therapy offered at West Hills Athletic Club

Feb. 20, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's Sports Medicine Clinic, located in the Sindecuse Health Center, recently began offering physical therapy services on the lower level of the West Hills Athletic Club.

Services at the West Hills location are available to any club member and include personal consultations, evaluation and treatment, performed by a licensed physical therapist from the Sports Medicine Clinic. Services are limited to orthopedic care, involving pain or dysfunction related to the muscular and skeletal systems, primarily in the lower back, neck, shoulders, knees, ankles, elbows and hip areas.

No referral is needed for the initial evaluation; however, a written referral or prescription from a physician is required for treatment. Physical therapy services are generally reimbursable through medical insurance programs, and the WMU Sports Medicine Clinic is a Blue Cross Blue Shield participant. Prospective patients should contact their insurance companies with questions about their specific coverage.
