What is athletic therapy?
Athletic therapy focuses on the effective treatment of musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries using a mix of on-site care, injury assessment, and active rehabilitation. Athletic therapists adhere to the Sports Medicine Model of care. They treat a wide range of patients, from professional athletes to the weekend warrior, using various manual therapies, modalities, postural/biomechanical correction, exercise prescription, bracing, and taping.
The treatments may vary but the objective doesn’t: An athletic therapist's goal is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports or continuing activities of daily living.
