Athletic Therapy focuses on the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal and medical conditions.
With an emphasis on stabilization, posture, and movement, Athletic Therapists employ a combination of manual therapy techniques and targeted exercises to facilitate optimal recovery and help individuals return to pain-free living and activities.
Conditions Treated by Athletic Therapy:
Sports Injuries: Athletic Therapists treat various sports-related injuries, including sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, and concussions. They provide manual therapy and develop personalized treatment plans to promote healing and facilitate a safe return to sport.
Musculoskeletal Disorders: Athletic Therapists treat conditions such as back and neck pain, tendonitis, bursitis, osteoarthritis, and muscle imbalances. Through manual therapy techniques, including soft tissue mobilization, joint manipulation, and myofascial release, athletic therapists alleviate pain, restore joint and muscle function, and improve overall mobility.
Chronic Pain Conditions: Individuals with chronic pain conditions such as chronic low back pain or repetitive strain injuries can benefit from Athletic Therapy. Athletic Therapists combine manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, and education on pain management strategies to reduce pain levels, enhance function, and improve quality of life.
