South Coast Health Centre’s Athletic Therapy
Athletic Therapy treatments are based on the Sports Medicine Model that involves active rehabilitation.
Certified Athletic Therapists are highly skilled health care practitioners that provide immediate treatment to musculoskeletal injuries and apply rehabilitation techniques to ensure a rapid return to work and play. Athletic Therapy uses an emphasis on customized active rehabilitation, using personalized exercises to reduce pain and recover from injury. This allows clients to continue to be active while recovering from an injury. This model has been proven extremely effective, providing accelerated rehabilitation from physical injuries incurred from sports, recreation, daily activities or occupation, and the fastest return to previous levels of health following an injury, and resulting in less time away from what they enjoy.
Athletic Therapy employs skills and techniques that are very effective in treating the injuries sustained by everyday active Canadians, including:
- Common injuries from falls, daily activities and sports
- Chronic and recurring conditions, pre-surgery and post-surgery
- Emergencies at sporting events such as concussion, fractures, and spinal injuries
- Workplace and motor vehicle accidents
