Each session with an athletic therapist is one-on-one. During your first visit with your Certified Athletic Therapist in Edmonton, your appointment will involve an initial assessment. You can expect this to take anywhere from 45-60 minutes.
During your assessment, your athletic therapist will go over your medical history, conduct an injury analysis, and perform various functional tests to determine the best treatment plan.
After your assessment, your therapist will inform you about your injury and educate you on their proposed treatment plan. From there on out, you will be required to attend treatment visits which may last 30-45 minutes at a time. Your athletic therapist will also inform you as to approximately how long they expect your recovery to take.
Rehabilitation techniques and methods they may use include mobilization techniques, manual therapy, therapeutic modalities, and education and demonstration regarding strengthening or stretching exercises.
