A Certified Athletic Therapist (AT) utilizes contemporary rehabilitative techniques, therapeutic modalities, physical reconditioning and supportive techniques to promote optimal performance and prepares the individual for safe reintegration into an active lifestyle.
Athletic therapists adhere to the Sports Medicine Model of care using various manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription and even bracing and taping. The treatment varies but the objective doesn’t: An Athletic Therapist’s goal is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports, participating in leisure activities or walking to classes
Registered Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is the hands-on manipulation of soft body tissues (muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints) that helps to reduce pain, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote overall health and wellness.
Chiropractic is a hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors often use spinal manipulative therapy to treat common joint and musculoskeletal injuries. Chiropractors are trained to provide highly-skilled and precise adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.
Osteopathy is a manual form of healing which emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function of the body. It uses manual ‘hands-on’ techniques to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics, without the use of drugs. An osteopathic physician does not concentrate only on the problem area, but uses manual techniques to balance all the body systems, and to provide overall good health and wellbeing.
