WHAT IS ATHLETIC THERAPY?

Certified Athletic Therapists keep you doing what you love.

Certified Athletic Therapists are highly skilled health practitioners that assess and treat all manner of musculoskeletal issues. In other words, if you have injured a muscle, bone or joint, or you are an active individual and want to avoid injury, then seeing an Athletic Therapist may be just the thing for you. 

Employing a sport medicine model, Athletic Therapy includes assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and education. In fact, Athletic Therapy views patient education as a crucial cornerstone to a healthy and rapid recovery. The therapy protocol includes manual therapy, modalities, exercises, learning how to prevent re-injury and learning about lifestyle factors that can help you get back to doing what you love faster.

While Athletic Therapists are best known for their quick-thinking on-field emergency care of professional and elite athletes, in reality they treat a wide range of patients. From kids with concussions to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery, Athletic Therapists always work to help their patients get back doing what they love whether it is playing sports or being able to roll around on the carpet with the grandkids. They rehabilitate injuries incurred from sports, recreation, daily activities, workplace and motor vehicle accidents.  

Certified Athletic Therapists are recognized by the credential CAT(C).
