The SMART (Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Therapies) Center is a friendly, state-of-the-art facility staffed with physical therapists and occupational therapists offering comprehensive rehabilitation services. With the mission of helping clients recovering from injuries and/or orthopedic surgery get back into top shape, the SMART Center provides a convenient location stocked with state-of-the-art treatment options.
Physical therapists help clients correct and prevent short-or long-term movement problems that affect their ability to perform everyday activities. Therapy may include a combination of exercise, strength training, gait training, manual therapy techniques and education to promote optimum health and function.
Occupational therapists help clients improve their ability to perform everyday activities such as attending to daily housekeeping and personal needs, using a computer and/or getting back into sports and other physical activities. They help clients improve their basic motor functions and learn how to compensate for any permanent loss of function.
The goal of physical and occupational therapy is to help clients lead independent, productive and satisfying lives.
Located just off the atrium of the Marshall University Medical Center, the SMART Center is just steps away from the Department of Orthopaedics and the Department of Neuroscience at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.
The SMART Center is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. To reach SMART Center staff, call 304-526-2411.
