What Is An Athletic Therapist?
Certified Athletic Therapists specialize in orthopaedic assessment and rehabilitation of all physical injuries as well as sport specific exercise rehabilitation. Athletic Therapy is based on the sports medicine model of rehabilitation and unlike physiotherapy, does not involve the study of neurological, respiratory, or cardiovascular rehabilitation. Athletic Therapists often work in conjunction with physiotherapists and other health care professionals to help the patient achieve the best result as efficiently as possible. At PhysioDNA, our Athletic Therapists work very closely with the physiotherapist, chiropractor, massage therapists, naturopathic doctor, and personal trainer to create the best possible treatment plan for clients.
