Athletic therapy decreases the chance of re-injury and can prevent future injuries from happening.Learn More
You take your car in for regular maintenance, why not your body? Come in regularly for ‘tune-up’ treatments to keep your body in tip top shape!
Hands on treatment from a certified Athletic Therapist can help you feel and perform at your best, catch imbalances before they become injuries and leave feeling relaxed. Receiving regular treatments can also help decrease and/or manage pain and discomfort, but can also keep your homework exercises relevant as your body improves and adapts.
Some tools ATs put in your tool box include:
Find the cause, treat the cause, not just the symptoms!
A proper assessment starts with a thorough history: medical history, previous injuries, sports and activities you are or have been involved in and different types jobs that you have worked. These are all essential to understanding how your body likes, or wants, to move. This is followed by a functional movement screen and special testing for the structures involved. These findings can give crucial insight to the injury type and severity, and will ultimately shape the upcoming treatment
Athletic Therapists are very hands on therapists. No machines in this clinic, but yes, lots of manual tools and exercise equipment. Clients get a full hour (or 1.5 hours) of 1-on-1 time with an Athletic Therapist. A test-treat-test approach is taken to make sure the treatment is providing positive results. Creating an optimal environment for the body to heal itself is a major priority.
No two injuries are the same, therefore no two treatments should be the same! The type of injury, severity, and stage of healing, will indicate what type of treatment you will receive.
