Certified Athletic Therapists are best known for providing on-field emergency care of professional and elite athletes and are also experts in injury assessment and rehabilitation. It’s this mix of on-site care and active rehabilitation skills that make Athletic Therapists so effective in treating musculoskeletal injuries - whether on the field or in the clinic.
Athletic therapists treat a wide range of patients, from kids with concussions to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery, using various manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription and even bracing and taping. The treatment varies but the objective doesn’t - their goal is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports or walking to the mailbox!
