Treatment of the Week – Athletic Therapy
What is Athletic Therapy
Athletic Therapy helps people suffering from pain, injury or illness involving the musculoskeletal system.
They help people of all ages to maintain their health and fitness, recover from and prevent injury and reduce pain using exercise, movement and manual based therapeutic interventions.
You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from rehabilitation, Athletic Therapists can treat individuals in all sporting, physical and occupational activity.
The aim of rehabilitation is to get you out of your pain and get you back to do doing whatever it is that your injury/pain/problem has stopped you from doing – be it walking, running, cycling or just blow-drying your hair!
Sport Rehabilitation is also known as Athletic Rehabilitation, Athletic Therapy and Athletic Training.
Athletic Therapy can be divided into four general areas:
• Injury Prevention and Pre-Participation Screening
• On-Field Emergency Care
• Injury Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment
• Rehabilitation and Reconditioning
If you have any questions about the role of a Athletic Therapists or think you would benefit from Rehabilitation, drop us a Facebook message and one of our team will be happy to discuss it with you
