Athletic Sport Therapy

Athletic Therapy employs a sport medicine model with assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and education. Athletic therapy can include exercises, learning how to prevent re-injury and even education of lifestyle factors to return you to doing what you love whether it be a sport, walking the dog, or even just reaching for the item on the top shelf.

Athletic therapy consists of an assessment of what the issue is before turning to a variety of rehabilitative techniques including manual therapy, soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilizations, physical rehabilitation, and other movement therapies on a customized basis to condition for preventative measures and recondition to return to daily life or specific activity.
