WHAT IS ATHLETIC THERAPY?

Athletic Therapy (A.T.) is a profession that provides a variety of services that assist active people who have sustained or could sustain an injury. These services fall into three main areas:

PREVENTION: A.T.'s employ many strategies to help active people to avoid or minimize the possibility of injury.

REHABILITATION: Post injury, athletic therapy focuses on preparing active individuals to reestablish their pre-injury lifestyle, through physical reconditioning, hands-on therapy and other rehabilitative techniques.

Athletic therapists earn university or college degrees and must pass a national examination before being allowed to practice. They are certified by the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association under a regulated Provincial Act.
