Frequently Asked Questions //
What is the difference between an Athletic Therapist and a Physio?
Physiotherapists offer treatments for all of your injuries. They draw on similar training as athletic therapists, but will be far more encompassing of all anatomical injuries. They are trained to assess and treat burn patients, people recovering from strokes, traumatic and congenital neurology as well as the elderly. Some will treat sports injuries as well. They will also be someone who can help children with various disorders as they grow. Physiotherapists work in places such as private clinics, hospitals, and seniors homes.
Athletic Therapists specialize in treating sports injuries. All of their training is in the area of the assessment and rehabilitation of orthopedic conditions — the muslces, bones and joints. They will assess and evaluate the injury based upon your sport and figure out how to get you back into the game as soon as possible. They can be found working closely with professional and national teams, and also in sports clinics across the country. Athletic therapists are known for their aggressive treatment protocol in the attempt to speed up the healing process, and are usually quite successfull in this process.
I am not an Athlete or Active Individual, do I still qualify to see an Athletic Therapist?
Yes of course! We also treat non-active individuals who have not had success elsewhere and wish to try a new form of therapy since our approach to therapy is so "hands-on". Non-active individuals of all kinds have had much success with our treatments.
