Athletic therapists assess and treat all manner of musculoskeletal issues. If you’ve injured a muscle, bone or joint, then athletic therapy could help you.
The School's Athletic Therapy Clinic delivers prompt and professional care to staff and faculty, students as well as the general public. The clinic is a fully functional treatment centre with the very latest in equipment and modalities, including Swim-Ex for aqua therapy.
The clinic is staffed by athletic therapy internship students and supervised by certified athletic therapists. Upon arrival at the Athletic Therapy Clinic, clients are met by a student intern who gathers information on medical history and performs a physical evaluation in order to arrive at a treatment plan. Each plan is overviewed by a supervisor who ensures that all appropriate tests and enquiries have been made. Only once a proper course of action is identified does treatment begin.
The clinic is also involved in developing community-accessible athletic therapy programs and research studies. In doing so, it provides clients with the opportunity to contribute to — and benefit from — the highest quality preventative and therapeutic care.
