Prota Clinic’s philosophy is based on a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. For this reason, we offer physiotherapy, massage therapy and athletic therapy all within our rehabilitation department. This collaborative approach to treatment ensures that our patients receive the best care possible.
What is Athletic Therapy?
Athletic therapy concentrates on the prevention and rehabilitation of orthopaedics and sports injuries. A common misconception is that athletic therapy focuses on the treatment of athletes alone. However, athletic therapists are pleased to offer their expertise to the public as well. Athletic therapy can also benefit anyone with:
- Motor vehicle injuries
- Workplace injuries
- Back and/or neck pain
- Pre and post surgery
- Joint pain or stiffness
- Sports related injuries
- Questions regarding training regimes or programming
Is Athletic Therapy Right for You?
