Athletic Therapy is a branch of therapy that specializes in musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. With exercise being a focus of the rehabilitation, it also includes manual therapy such as joint mobilizations and soft-tissue work.

Athletic Therapists are trained to work with any population, regardless of age, background, or experience. The range of demographics that we can work with includes athletes, children, post-surgical clients, and car accident patients. Clients who are hesitant regarding performing exercise can feel comfortable that their rehab program will begin at whatever comfort level they need.

Beginning an active rehab plan early into an injury or pain experience so will help to ensure minimal time off of work, school, or activity, decreasing the impact on your routine. Contrary to traditional beliefs that absolute rest is indicated for recovery, we now have an understanding that if even small, low-grade movements can be performed in the acute stage of injury, then optimal recovery is easier and quicker to achieve.
