Athletic therapists assess and treat musculoskeletal issues, which means if you have injured a muscle, bone, or joint they can help!
Sessions include assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and education. Treatment varies depending on the assessment outcomes, but can include a variety of manual therapy techniques, physical reconditioning, and supportive taping, all in an effort to help accelerate healing.
Regardless of whether your goals are to return to playing a sport, or walking to the mailbox without pain, athletic therapy’s main goal is to get people back to doing what they enjoy.
Initial Assessment: $85.00 (60 mins)
Follow-up Assessment: $75.00 (45 mins)
Supportive Taping: $25.00 (15 mins)
