Athletic Therapy is a sports medicine approach to rehabilitative care that focuses on acute injury intervention and injury prevention. This approach includes a thorough orthopedic assessment of posture, movement mechanics, sport specific movement patterns and the local injury site. Manual treatment techniques coupled with individualized exercise prescription are used to address the injury or dysfunction to return the individual to their performance goals and daily living activity.
Athletic Therapists are knowledgeable/well versed in working with the healing timelines and know when to accelerate or decelerate rehabilitation based on an individual’s injury. If you’re looking for a quick, but responsible return to play, an Athletic Therapist can be a good option for you.
