Certified Athletic Therapists specialize in treating acute and chronic injuries to muscles, bones, and joints.

Best known for providing immediate on-field emergency care of professional and elite athletes, Athletic Therapists are skilled in returning athletes to competition and maximizing their performance potential as fast as possible after an injury. Those same skills and techniques also make them very effective in treating the injuries sustained by everyday active Canadians, including:
  • Common injuries from falls, daily activities and sports
  • Chronic and recurring conditions, pre-surgery and post-surgery
  • Emergencies at sporting events such as concussion, fractures, and spinal injuries
  • Workplace and motor vehicle accidents
Athletic Therapists rehabilitate injuries using the Sports Medicine Model, resulting in a faster recovery, a decreased chance of further injury, and fewer visits to a healthcare professional.

Certified Athletic Therapists are recognized by the credential CAT(C)
