Sports Medicine Clinic & Physical Therapy

The Sports Medicine Clinic (SMC) assists in maintaining our students' active lifestyles. This area of the Student Health Center consists of the provider evaluation and treatment area and the Physical Therapy Center. The SMC is staffed by Dr. Rebecca Morgan, a Board Certified Sports Medicine Specialist, who evaluates sports related injuries, such as sprains, strains, and simple fractures, and develops a treatment plan for a safe return to activity. This is often accomplished through a coordinated effort with the Physical Therapist, Teresa Johnston. Dr. Morgan also has expertise in managing concussions sustained in sporting events, and can develop a treatment plan for safe return to activity.

Teresa Johnston, PT/ATC, is a licensed physical therapist and athletic trainer, and has twenty-seven years of experience treating sports injuries in athletes. She provides comprehensive care in the new, state-of-the-art, Physical Therapy Center in the Sports Medicine Clinic.

Jan Fowler, RN, is the other essential team member in the Sports Medicine Clinic. Mrs. Fowler has worked in the SMC for 10 years, and is responsible for assisting in the care of injuries through crutch and brace fitting, and coordination of diagnostic testing and referrals.

Students may access the Sports Medicine Clinic by referral from a Primary Care or Acute Care Provider, or through self-referral by scheduling an appointment through Online Student Health or with an appointment clerk at (865) 974-3648.  

Students with an appointment in the Sports Medicine/Physical Therapy department should bring or wear comfortable clothing, preferably shorts, to facilitate evaluation and treatment of injuries and should allow an hour or more for appointments. A limited number of Physical Therapy appointments are available for each diagnosis and treatment plan. Patients requiring more than the allotted visits will be referred to an outside facility for further care.

Students with the University sponsored Student Health Insurance plan will have their insurance billed directly. The following fees will not apply.

Students with other health insurance, where third party billing is unavailable through the Student Health Center, and students without health insurance, are assessed from the following fees with their initial Physical Therapy visit.
