Certified Athletic Therapists are best known for being on the sidelines, responding to injuries with the world’s top athletes across professional sports. Did you know they also provide treatment on a therapy table in a clinic? An Athletic Therapist can help you recover from no only sport induced injuries, but also day-to-day injuries as well.
They can apply their knowledge and skill sets to help everyone from elite athletes, office workers, or if you’re recovering or preparing for surgery.
Athletic Therapists have formal education and expertise on:
- Orthopaedic conditions
- Assessing & treating muscles, joints & ligaments
- Exercise physiology
Athletic Therapists combine hands-on manual therapy such as massage techniques and joint mobilizations, and prescribe specific therapeutic exercise programs to create lasting changes. Athletic Therapists have a strong understanding of the body and its connections, allowing them to target the source of your pain and not just focus on one body part at a time. This whole body approach addresses the entire kinetic chain — not only with the hands-on table work, but with your exercise program as well.
Athletic Therapists have a thorough understanding and formal education in the area of concussions. From assessing symptoms to conducting concussion specific rehabilitation programs, our Athletic Therapists here at Athletify can help you understand the condition, and guide you through your return to action.
Our Athletic Therapists stress the importance of education and ensure that you have a full understanding of your injury. With each session, you will have a clear plan of what needs to be done both at home and in the clinic so you can get back to what you love to do. Whether that’s playing golf, or just being active for work and everyday life, we want to help you move better, live better and just get better.
