Physical therapy services are provided through Stanford Sports Medicine for all varsity athletes, as part of the multidisciplinary team that includes physicians, athletic trainers, sports scientists, and performance coaches. As experts in human movement, our physical therapists utilize biomechanical assessments, neuromuscular retraining, manual therapies, and advanced therapeutic technology to improve movement impairments and restore Stanford student-athletes to their highest levels of function. In collaboration with other members of the sports medicine team, their mission is to apply best practices in order to return athletes safely to sport.
The physical therapy clinic is staffed by five physical therapists, who each hold advanced specializations and expertise in a wide range of clinical skills. Collectively, this experienced group of clinicians is responsible for treating the university’s 900 varsity student-athletes across 36 athletic programs through direct referral from the team physicians.
Along with the Human Performance Lab and medical clinic, the physical therapy clinic is located within the Lacob Family Sports Medicine Center, on the bottom floor of the Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation. During the academic year, the clinic is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility – in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.
