The Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy CARES (Community Aid Relief Education Support) Clinic is an MUSC student-run free clinic.
CARES offers physical therapy services from orthopedic to neurological problems ranging from mechanical body issues to traumatic brain injuries and strokes. Physical therapists are healthcare professionals who use exercise and movement to decrease pain and prevent future injuries.
The occupational therapy students at CARES focus on helping patients participate fully in life. The students work with patients to identify meaningful daily activities, such as cooking and dressing. These activities are modified to fit the patient’s needs and promote independence.
Speech Therapists at CARES work with clients on deficits in receptive and expressive language, cognition, and swallowing disorders. They work with clients who may have had a stroke, brain injury, hearing loss, developmental delay, a cleft palate, cerebral palsy, or emotional issues.
Tuesday and Wednesday, 6 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.
