Athletic Therapy

Certified Athletic Therapists are trained in both a clinical aspect and a field aspect.

Clinical

Certified Athletic Therapists are educated mainly in the assessment and active rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries, this includes anything to do with muscles, bones and joints. When a client enters the clinic, the Therapist will delve into the clients’ history, understanding the demands they put on their body and any health concerns they may have. During the assessment, functional movements are often performed to understand where an individual’s weakness is and what may be contributing to the injury. Understanding the cause of the injury and treating the cause is what our Certified Athletic Therapist Jessica Armstrong prides herself on! After a thorough assessment, appropriate treatment will be given which includes, but is not limited to: massage, cryotherapy, thermotherapy, electrical modalities and most importantly EXERCISE.

It is Jessica's goal to return her clients to their usual activities, whether that is splitting wood, professional sports or recreational walking!

Field

Certified Athletic Therapists are qualified to provide pitch-side coverage where they are well versed in dealing with everything from catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries to minor sprains and strains. They are well educated in making the decision if an athlete is able to return to play after injury. For athletes that are unable to return, Jessica can provide treatment and exercises in order to return the athlete safely to play as well as recognize any weaknesses in the athlete and provide exercises from a preventative side as well. Certified Athletic Therapists are trained in dealing with the recognition and management of concussions.
