Many people believe that you need to be a football player or soccer player to benefit from the services of an Athletic Therapist when this is not necessarily the case. Athletic Therapists work with all levels of athletes but can also work with people who aren’t ‘sporty’ at all.
ATs use a wide range of active rehabilitation techniques to help you recover faster and reduce long term problems associated with any injury.
ATs are skilled in determining the cause of your injury or pathology; they are able to prescribe preventative measures to help you avoid the reoccurrence of specific conditions.
For both athletic therapy and physiotherapy, exercise is a vital component of the rehabilitation process. Exercises are prescribed based on YOUR level of activity and can be modified to meet YOUR abilities.
