Doctor of Physical Therapy Students Present KnightAbility Clinic, Health & Wellness Fair

Presented by the Gannon University Doctor of Physical Therapy program, the KnightAbility Physical Therapy Clinic offers physical therapy services to members of the Gannon and Erie community who lack access to care. Services provided include focused rehab care for a variety of conditions across the lifespan. Doctor of Physical Therapy students and faculty work together to provide a personalized therapy plan to meet each client’s specific needs.

The KnightAbility Clinic offers direct access care, allowing you to schedule an appointment without a referral from the health center or your doctor. Visits can be virtual and/or in person based on patient needs. We adhere to the Department of Health and CDC COVID-19 guidelines as well as industry standards, to ensure the health and safety of our clients and staff for all in-person appointments.

Our Doctor of Physical Therapy students work with licensed faculty to provide focused rehabilitative care for neurologic, orthopedic, sports, post-operative, and vestibular conditions. Contact us at KnightClinic@gannon.edu or 814-871-5653.
