What is open clinic?
Open clinic is a benefit available to all members at Smith Performance Center. It is a designated time in the gym, that the physical therapists are present, evaluate, treat, and adjust plans for the members with the coaching team. During these times, members can check in, and address any concerns related to musculoskeletal issues or injuries of the past or present. These appointments are integrated in the Health and Human Performance Program and must be scheduled ahead of time.

There are several reasons to schedule an open clinic visit. Some examples of these reasons include: You have noticed a pain or discomfort during a certain lifting movement, or you have noticed that sometimes you wake up with a dull aching pain somewhere, or you feel you have restricted motion in a joint or muscle. Once you are seen for this type of symptom, the PT will assist you with determining your plan of care progressing forward. It could be that you just have to add a corrective exercise into your program, or it could be that you will require a full visit.
However, if you have more severe symptoms, or a serious concern, it will be more beneficial to schedule a full PT appointment online. You would schedule an “initial evaluation” with the appropriate PT. If you cannot find a time that works for you, or if you feel your issue is more urgent, please reach out to a member of your SPC team, to be seen sooner if possible by PT.
