Athletic Therapy

Athletic Therapy began its official journey in Ontario back in 1976, where it was established in time for the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. Since then, over 2,500 professionals now call themselves Certified Athletic Therapists and are the backbone to some of our amazing sports teams and athletes. 


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. It’s that same mix of on-site care and active rehabilitation skills that makes Athletic Therapists so effective in treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all Canadians, whether on the field or in the clinic.


Athletic Therapists adhere to the Sports Medicine Model of care. Using various manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescriptions, and even bracing and taping, they treat a wide range of patients, from children with concussions to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery. The treatment varies but the objective doesn’t: an Athletic Therapist's goal is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports or walking to the mailbox and back.
