Certified Athletic Therapists are best known for their quick-thinking on-field emergency care of professional and elite athletes. The first to respond when someone gets hurt, they are experts at injury assessment and rehabilitation. It’s that same mix of on-site care and active rehabilitation skills that makes Athletic Therapists so effective in treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all Canadians, whether on the field or in the clinic. Athletic therapists adhere to the Sports Medicine Model of care. They treat a wide range of patients, from kids with concussions to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery, using various manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription and even bracing and taping. The treatment varies 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 walking to the mailbox and back. *Initial assessments are required for all new patients and new injuries. The assessment may take less time depending on the area of injury. Upon completion of assessment your therapist will provide recommendations for subsequent treatment(s) and a management plan. **Most Insurance Providers cover Athletic Therapy. Insurance plans can differ in their coverage amounts and a doctors prescription may be required. Please consult your plan details.
