Quality, Customer Focus, and Dignity of Work—these are just a few of the values that guide business activities at SEL and are also at the forefront of the service we provide at the SEL Health Clinic. At the SEL Health Clinic, we are committed to helping you and your family members achieve your best health and are delighted to offer convenient access to high-quality, comprehensive care at no out-of-pocket cost (no copay) to our patients. We provide a range of services, including the following:
A primary care provider is a healthcare provider that you consider the person in charge of coordinating your healthcare, from screening to intervention. You see this provider regularly, even if you aren't sick, as a way to assess your health risks.
There is much more to staying healthy than simply treating disease. Lifestyle habits you develop can impact your health in the future, and some diseases must be screened for because they can be present without any outward symptoms. A primary care provider help you identify tests you need while avoiding those you don't.
Primary care providers are usually family medicine or internal medicine providers. We generally term these practitioners as working in “primary care.” They are specially equipped to coordinate your care among specialists and to provide care and screening for common diseases.

When in-person visits aren’t achievable, our providers at the SEL Health Clinic are happy to offer telemedicine visits for our established patients. Telemedicine permits two-way, real-time interactive communication between the patient and provider, allowing remote delivery of healthcare services. Providers can provide exams and consultations over a secure, HIPAA-compliant video conference.
Care coordination is a targeted approach to deliver efficient healthcare, especially in the area of synchronizing needs from multiple providers or services. The primary goals of care coordination center around the total health of the patient and offering support to ensure that patients have access to the range of services and providers needed, that communication between services and providers is streamlined, and that records are accurate and timely. Finally, care coordination aims to provide you, the patient, with actionable information and resources that are personalized, simple to access, simple to understand and, most importantly, realistic to implement.
SEL’s Care Coordination model uses an interdisciplinary team of professionals in the SEL Health Clinic as well as referred specialists and insurance companies to streamline our patients’ health needs and communicate among providers. This means there is a decrease in wait times, improved cost savings and, even better, more comprehensive care.
Virtual reality (VR) headsets can be used as a distraction technique to decrease fear and anxiety and improve the patient experience for children and adults alike. This nonpharmaceutical intervention can help manage the pain and anxiety associated with visits involving immunizations and lab draws.
Physical therapists are healthcare experts who identify and correct movement disorders that often lead to injuries or pain. Inefficient movement and abnormal movement patterns are common for many of us in our day-to-day lives. Physical therapists are trained to look at your entire body and accurately determine why you move the way you do. The expertise of a physical therapist can assist you in your journey for optimal physical fitness and health. The updated vision statement from the American Physical Therapy Association is “Transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience.”
At SEL Physical Therapy, we use new, cutting-edge, state-of-the-art release techniques that can immediately reduce pain and stiffness and help restore the mobility you need. We believe in a holistic approach to treatment, looking at the person as a whole, not just as a patient with an injured body part. We use a comprehensive biomechanical approach that evaluates your posture, alignment, joint range of motion, flexibility, strength, and coordination and how you move. Our goal is to identify the root cause of your problem, then design a customized program specific for your individual needs. Correcting postural faults, abnormal biomechanics, muscle imbalances, etc. often allows you to more easily achieve and sustain fitness goals.
Some of the treatment approaches that we use include the following:
All other treatment interventions, including massage therapy, acupuncture, spinal manipulations, and exercise programs, can be more effective following any one of these release techniques.
The FMS gives us an objective way to analyze human movement at the big joints in the body.
With the test, we screen for:
Based on the results of this test, we can build appropriate programs. There are three possible outcomes for the screening:
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." — Carl Rogers
Counseling is a personal journey toward self-acceptance while actively working to improve dimensions of life. The responsibility of a counselor is to help facilitate self-acceptance and growth by providing empathy for an individual’s experiences, respecting the autonomy of an individual, and believing in an individual’s capacity to heal and grow. At the SEL Health Clinic, we strive to provide the most beneficial counseling experience. Currently, we offer individual counseling services for adults and children as well as family counseling services.
In order to achieve self-acceptance and growth, we provide empathetic care that challenges individuals to be the main agent of change in their lives. Many individuals have their own internal wisdom to resolving life’s concerns, and our treatment approach is geared toward uncovering that wisdom. Therapeutic techniques and skills will be provided to assist in empowering an individual to address their concerns. Successful therapeutic interventions frequently require confronting unhealthy behaviors that have developed over the course of life to facilitate growth. Due to this and the vulnerable nature of counseling, it is pertinent that an individual find a counselor who is a positive personal fit for their needs.
