Certified Athletic Therapists are best known for their quick-thinking on-field emergency care of professional and elite athletes. The first to respond when someone gets hurt, they are experts at injury assessment and rehabilitation. Athletic Therapists are capable of treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all Canadians, whether on the field or in the clinic.
Most people use massage in the clinic as a therapy to relax, calm and relieve pain, or to ease hypertoned, tight muscles. But the underutilized aspect of massage therapy, enhanced recovery and muscular regeneration, is often overlooked.
