What is Athletic Therapy?
Athletic Therapy focuses on the prevention and care of musculoskeletal disorders involving bones, joints, nerves and muscles and particularly those related to sports, athletics and general physical performance. It differs from Physiotherapy which has a wider scope that also includes cardiovascular and neurological conditions and focuses on musculoskeletal and orthopedic injury assessments and rehabilitative approaches.
Athletic Therapists adhere to the Sports Medicine Model of Care. They treat a wide range of patients, from kids with concussions to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery, using various manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription and even bracing and taping. The treatment varies but the objective doesn’t. The Shelbourne Physiotherapy Athletic Therapist’s goal is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports or walking to the mailbox and back.
Shelbourne Physiotherapy’s Athletic Therapists are trained and professionally certified to treat clients of all ages and levels of activity, from pediatrics to geriatrics, weekend warriors to seasoned athletes and everyone else in between. Our approach is anchored on three pillars: the medical sciences, the rehabilitative sciences and performance conditioning and training. Our Victoria Athletic Therapists collaborate with clients very closely to determine the specific approaches required for their needs to help them enhance their performance and achieve personal and professional wellness goals.
Certified Athletic Therapists are best known for their quick-thinking on-field emergency care of professional and elite athletes. The first to respond when someone gets hurt, they are experts at injury assessment and rehabilitation. It’s that same mix of on-site care and active rehabilitation skills that makes our Victoria Shelbourne Athletic Therapists so effective in treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all Victorians, whether on the field or in the clinic.
