What is Athletic Therapy?
Athletic Therapy is a health care profession that specializes in care of musculoskeletal disorders (muscles, bones, joints), especially as they relate to active individuals pursuing an active lifestyle. This includes assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and education of the injured person.
An Athletic Therapist is a certified member of the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association, and is qualified to use the letters CAT(C) after their name. Athletic Therapists offer clinical services as well as team and event coverage (See First Aid).
What to expect when you see an Athletic Therapist?
You can expect one-on-one attention during your visits and this process will utilize an active approach to your injury rehabilitation. Your first visit will include an Initial Assessment, which is conducted to determine the nature of the injury (i.e. sprain, repetitive strain, bursitis etc.), the cause of the injury and to determine the best approach to accelerate healing and a quick return to activity. This will include a through patient history, injury analysis, functional and anatomical assessment along with specific muscle and joint testing. After the first visit you should have a good understanding of your injury and know how to prevent future problems.
Follow Up treatments include a combination of rehabilitation techniques such as manual therapies, soft tissue mobilization, therapeutic modalities and detailed specific reconditioning exercises to accelerate your progress. This type of therapy is effective for treating both acute and chronic conditions.
