What is Athletic Therapy?

The scope of practice of a certified athletic therapist includes the assessment, prevention, immediate care, and reconditioning of musculoskeletal injuries. Prevention includes musculoskeletal and postural evaluation, equipment selection, fitting and repair, warm-up, conditioning programs, prophylactic taping, and adapting to the activity, environment and facilities.

An athletic therapist assesses injuries and conditions, utilizes contemporary rehabilitative techniques, therapeutic modalities, soft tissue mobilization, physical reconditioning, and supportive strapping procedures to promote an environment conducive to optimal healing in preparing the individual for safe reintegration into an active lifestyle. – CATA Website

At Prairie, following your assessment, you are given a customized exercise program that targets your specific biomechanical issues. You will receive information to help you visualize and understand the significance of gait, stability and posture.
