Athletic Therapy

What is Athletic Therapy?

Athletic Therapists have four years of practical education specializing in musculoskeletal function, disfunction, health, and injury. They are proficient at assessing and rehabilitating both acute and chronic injuries. In the clinical setting they use a combination of manual therapy, electrical modalities, and exercise prescription to treat the entire athlete (or athlete at heart) to return them quickly and efficiently to an active, pain-free lifestyle. On the field, Athletic Therapists are First Responders who are highly skilled in prevention, recognition, and proper immediate treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, environment related illnesses, and concussions.
