Benefits of Athletic Therapy
Athletic therapy is the treatment choice for many college, university, national and professional athletes. Certified Athletic Therapists are specialists trained in the assessment, prevention and reconditioning of musculoskeletal injuries. Contemporary rehabilitative techniques are used in preparing the individual for safe reintegration into an active lifestyle.
Athletic Therapy Rehabilitation programs are designed for injuries associated with increased physical exertion sustained at work or on the playing field. Sports-related pain can result from a muscle strain, a contusion or excessive use of a muscle. Overuse of a muscle or muscle group may result in delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
Physiological benefits of Athletic Therapy include pain reduction and relaxation, improved blood flow and nutrient delivery to your muscles, reduction of scar tissue, improved tissue elasticity and improved muscle strength and flexibility.
The goal is to properly assess the root cause of your pain and prevent injuries while helping the individual return to a pain-free, active lifestyle.
Our Athletic Therapist uses Massage Therapy as one of his many techniques to get you back to good health. MPI and Workers Compensation allow Athletic Therapists to treat patients who have been injured and will cover the costs in most cases.
