Athletic Therapy

Many people wonder, "exactly what is an athletic therapist?" Athletic therapists (AT's) are versatile practitioners who want to help you function and move as well as possible. AT's work with injury rehabilitation & prevention, supportive taping/bracing, musculoskeletal assessment, manual therapy, first response services, and strength training/conditioning. This combination of modalities makes an athletic therapist the most resourceful therapist that you can see.  

 

Every case is unique. After an initial assessment is performed, your athletic therapist will build a plan to help you meet your goals and will suggest the modalities required to meet those goals.
