Regardless of your sport or activity, Athletic Therapy can help get you off the sideline and back onto the field. Whether it's a new injury, an old one that hasn't quite healed or pain with an unknown cause, Athletic Therapists treat and rehabilitate all types of musculoskeletal injuries.
Injury rehabilitation consists of an initial injury assessment and follow-up rehabilitation treatments where we create an individualized plan to address your specific injury and athletic needs. Athletic Therapists specialize in returning injured athletes back to pre-injury performance levels. Through educating proper mechanics, Athletic Therapists ensure future injury prevention is always part of the process. Whether you're an elite athlete or a weekend warrior an Athletic Therapist can help you get back to doing what you love.

CONCUSSION BASELINE TESTING
Baseline concussion testing consists of both physical and cognitive tests that provide a pre-injury baseline of healthy brain function. Baseline testing is completed pre-injury, and offer health care practitioners an objective score to compare to if an athlete sustains a concussion. Concussion testing is performed using both the SCAT5 and the King-Devick test. The SCAT5 is a tool developed as part of the 5th international consensus on concussion in sport. The King-Devick test evaluates impairments of eye movements, attention and language function.

BIOMECHANICAL AND ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT
Biomechanical and athletic performance assessments and corrections are suited for athletes who have experienced a recurring injury, have hit a performance plateau or wish to improve their performance potential. The assessment consists of identifying areas of weakness or restriction, improper movement patterns or biomechanics, adaptations and compensations. Body and limb angles, weight distribution and force transfer are also evaluated. An individualized program is then created to meet the athlete's unique needs and goals.
