Athletic Therapy

What is Athletic Therapy?

Athletic therapy is a form of physical therapy that involves prevention, immediate care and reconditioning of musculoskeletal injuries. Prevention involves a postural and musculoskeletal evaluation as well as supportive taping.

What should I expect on my first visit?

The one-hour session consists of a 30-minute assessment and a 30-minute treatment. The assessment will include taking a history and testing the range of motion and strength of the injured joint/muscle. In taking the time to assess your body’s current biomechanics, posture and positioning, the right information and corrective exercises can be given to you to help you on your road to pain free movement.

How many sessions will it take for me to get better?

Athletic therapy can improve tissue longevity by incorporating stretching, stability, range of motion, muscle firing patterns and strengthening techniques. Each of these techniques is catered to the individual to ensure the best possible program to meet the patient’s needs. The benefits of athletic therapy include: increase in energy, better posture, improved nervous system function, speedy recovery from injury, reduced onset of chronic pain, improved flexibility, improved stamina, better endurance, improved strength, better breathing, reduced stress, improved sleep and more.
