Athletic Therapy

What is Athletic Therapy?

Athletic therapy is a healthcare discipline focused on the prevention, assessment, and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries, often as they relate to physical activity. We work with people of all ages and skill levels, from recreational participants to professional athletes, to help them maintain or return to optimal physical function.

The core techniques used in athletic therapy often include manual therapy, modalities like ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat/cold therapy, and more, exercise prescription, rehabilitation, and education.

 It may also include bracing or taping when beneficial. Athletic therapy is often a part of a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare, collaborating with physicians, physiotherapists, chiropractors, and more.

Benefits of Athletic Therapy

Injury Prevention

Helps to identify and address issues before they become major problems, and educate you on how to avoid future strain.

Pain Reduction

Manual therapies and modalities, such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, pain education, and more can contribute to a decrease in pain.

Improved Mobility

We can increase your range of motion through manual therapy and targeted exercises, modifying as you progress. These will be custom exercises to your specific needs.

Enhanced Performance

Consistent treatment can help optimize your physical function for improved athletic ability, not only helping you get back to how you performed, but possibly even better. For example, we can help you improve your proprioception, coordination, and efficiency of movement.

Psychological Benefits

Athletic therapy also helps you build confidence and mental strength, which are crucial for recovery and performance.

Tim was very knowledgeable and took the time to really get to know what was going on with my injuries. Tim knew what was up with my shoulder and worked very hard to produce the results I was hoping for when I made my massage therapy appointment. I will definitely be coming back!
