Athletic therapy deals with the prevention, assessment and treatment of all types of injuries. Whether you are a young athlete injured on the field or an office worker with a sore back, an Athletic Therapist can help you recover and have you performing at your best. Athletic therapists are highly trained to help people of all ages reach their physical goals using a combination of manual therapy techniques, modalities and therapeutic exercise.
Athletic Therapists are well known for their skills in treating and managing sports injuries, but Athletic Therapy is not just for athletes. Anyone from kids to elderly with new or old injuries are appropriate to be treated by an Athletic Therapist.
