Athletic Therapists (ATs) provide patients of all backgrounds, weekend warriors to the professional athletes, the individualized care and guidance needed to effectively return to the work or play in a safe and rapid manner.

 

ATs employ a sports medicine model of rehabilitation to physical injuries incurred from sports, recreation, accidents, daily activities and occupations.  They specialize in assessment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, including sprains, strains, overuse injuries, muscular imbalances and joint disorders.  Each client is taken through a thorough assessment to pinpoint the cause of the problem and treatment plans are customized to optimize healing time.
