What is Athletic Therapy?
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. Certified Athletic Therapists can be recognized by the credential CAT(C).
Athletic Therapists can assess and treat a wide range of orthopedic injuries – from chronic muscular pain to acute trauma. Some of these conditions include but are not limited to:
- Muscle pain
- Strains & sprains, tendonitis, bursitis
- Pre- & post-surgical rehabilitation (fractures, ligament/meniscus repair)
- Rotator cuff/shoulder injuries
- Tennis/golfer’s elbow
- Postural dysfunction
- TMJ dysfunction (jaw pain)
