Athletic Therapy

Toronto Athletic Therapy: Evolving from sports teams physical therapy, The main goal of an Athletic Therapist is to get an individual back to their sport or activity as soon as possible.

HOW DOES ATHLETIC THERAPY WORK?

Athletic Therapy has two main forms of care.

The first is on-field care emergency care where they use their knowledge of first aid, injury assessment and preventative care. When someone is injured, they assess the athletes to determine if they can return to the sport, provide taping techniques to support a joint and provide any immediate treatment that may be needed.
The second forms of Athletic Therapy is clinical treatment. At Emkiro Health Services Toronto,  we use the Sports Medicine Model of care to treat anyone from athletes, to weekend warriors to children of all ages. An Athletic Therapist’s primary focus is to treat muscular and skeletal conditions using manual hands-on treatment with therapeutic exercise prescription, various treatment modalities, as well as joint bracing and taping techniques.
