Athletic Therapy

Regardless of the name, Athletic Therapy is not just for athletes it is for everyone.

Athletic Therapy is a health care profession that specializes in emergency care, prevention, assessment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries (muscles, bones and joints). Athletic Therapists can help patients in a variety of ways from treating current injuries, preventing future injuries, improving muscle and joint mobility, as well as providing pain relief. This is achieved by following the Sports Medicine Model of care using an array or manual therapies, exercise prescription and taping.
