Athletic Therapy

The Athletic Therapy Clinic has been in operation for over 20 years and provides professional treatment essential in the care of sport and other activity-related injuries, performed by certified athletic therapists. We offer services for the student population, staff and general public. Our goal is to provide quality and affordable athletic therapy services for the active population.

Certified Athletic Therapists

Certified Athletic Therapists are best known for on-field emergency care. They are the first to respond when someone gets hurt, applying their knowledge of assessment and rehabilitation. Athletic Therapists manage the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries (muscles, bones, and joints), whether acute or chronic and on or off the field.

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.
