What is Athletic Therapy?

Athletic Therapy involves injury assessment and rehabilitation using soft-tissue mobilization aimed at removing scar tissue from the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Chronic and repetitive injuries cause scar tissue which can limit function and can become very painful and lead to more injury.  Athletic Therapy is effective in treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all patients, whether on the field or in the clinic.

 

There are 5 domains of Athletic Therapy:

  1. Prevention

  2. Assessment

  3. Intervention

  4. Practice management

  5. Professional responsibility
