Athletic Therapy Vs. Physiotherapy

Athletic Therapists and Physiotherapists often work together, along with other healthcare professionals, to achieve a mutual goal: making you feel better and getting you back to the activities you enjoy.

PHYSIOTHERAPY: 

Physiotherapists have a diverse scope of practice and treat a wide range of clients of all ages, as well as varying levels of activity. Physiotherapists undergo an intensive four – five year Bachelor degree or Masters in Medical Rehabilitation for Physical Therapy with exam certification to give national portability. Their formal education focuses on the study of neurology, cardiology/cardiopulmonary and orthopaedics.

Physiotherapists also have the ability to further focus on manual therapy, vestibular, pelvic floor, cardio-respiratory rehabilitation, burn patients, pediatrics, geriatrics, stroke, neurological disease rehabilitation and many other skills. They use education, manual therapy, exercise, taping, and modalities during their treatments, to provide active rehab for acute and chronic issues.

Physiotherapists are proficient at assessing muscle/joint pain and much more including: stress management, dizziness, balance, lifestyle, etc.

ATHLETIC THERAPY:

Athletic Therapists are experts in musculoskeletal disorders. They treat pain and injury through hands-on treatment and rehabilitation. Athletic Therapists go through a highly demanding three-year degree course which focuses primarily on the musculoskeletal system and on restoring, maintaining and maximizing movement to relieve pain and increase quality of life.

Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA), who describe the profession as:

“Certified Athletic Therapists are best known for their quick-thinking on-field emergency care of professional and elite athletes. The first to respond when someone gets hurt, they are experts at injury assessment and rehabilitation. It’s that same mix of on-site care and active rehabilitation skills that makes Athletic Therapists so effective in treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all Canadians, whether on the field or in the clinic. 

Athletic therapists adhere to the Sports Medicine Model of care. They treat a wide range of patients, from kids with concussions to seniors recovering from hip replacement surgery, using various manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription and even bracing and taping. The treatment varies but the objective doesn’t: an Athletic Therapist’s goal is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports or walking to the mailbox and back.”
