Athletic Therapist and Sports Physiotherapy Oakville
Why you should choose an Athletic Therapist in Oakville?
Our certified athletic therapists in Oakville are experts at sports physiotherapy, injury assessment and rehabilitation, working both in the clinic or on the sideline. It is that same mix of on-site care and active rehabilitation skills that makes sports physiotherapy so effective in treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all individuals.
Practitioners of sports physiotherapy adhere to the Sports Medicine Model of Care. They see the athlete in each individual, treating a wide variety of patients, from kids with sports injuries, to weekend warriors, to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery. Athletic therapists use contemporary manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription and even bracing and taping. Athletic therapy can take a personalized approach so the treatment varies but the objective does not. The goal at our physiotherapy sports clinic is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports or walking to the mailbox and back.
Fees for an Athletic Therapist:
Initial Assessment: $75.00
Treatment (30 min.): $50.00
Certified Athletic Therapists can be recognized by the credential CAT(C).
The Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA) is an organization devoted to the healthcare, performance, and welfare of all Canadians. The athletic therapist nurtures an attitude of positive health for all.
The scope of practice of a certified athletic therapist starts with the in-depth knowledge, education and training in the areas of the human musculoskeletal system, exercise physiology, biomechanics, rehabilitation and exercise prescription. Canadian athletic therapists must participate in a mandatory maintenance of certification program, including continuing education. This ensures that all sports physiotherapy practitioners annually demonstrate that they have remained current with the developments in their professional field.
