3 Kinds of “Everyday Athletes” Who Can Benefit From Athletic Therapy

When someone mentions athletic therapy, we instantly think of a nasty sports injury that would’ve led to the need for this treatment. It’s in the name, after all, and yes, athletes are the majority of clients who opt for it. That said, athletic therapy isn’t just for professional or amateur athletes. In fact, you don’t even need to have sustained a sports injury to need this treatment.

Athletic therapy is beneficial for all sorts of people. From those who live active lifestyles to those who try to make up for it on the weekends, athletic therapy is for everyone.

Here are a few types of “everyday athletes” who benefit from athletic therapy.

The Firefighter*

Firefighters are first responders, meaning that they often find themselves in unpredictable and demanding situations. It also means that they need to be active and alert when on the job, and can go from filling up paperwork to rushing out for a fire emergency in a matter of minutes. Firefighters need to have enough strength and stamina to adequately perform their duties, be it rescuing people and carrying them to safety manoeuvring around obstacles.

With athletic therapy, firefighters can keep up with the physical demands of their jobs and ensure that any injuries or muscle strain caused by heavy lifting or quick movements are tended to.

*Much like firefighters, police officers, healthcare workers, and other first responders who have to stay active on the job can also benefit tremendously from athletic therapy.

The Weekend Workout Enthusiast

Many people work 9-5 jobs and don’t get much time to exercise during the week. These individuals are likely to schedule all their exercising and physical activities on weekends. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always work in their favour.

By neglecting exercise during the week and then diving straight into a loaded workout routine on the weekend, you’re more likely to injure your muscles than strengthen them. Sporadic physical activity does have health benefits, but intense workouts after a long period of inactivity can take a toll on your body. With athletic therapy, you can better understand your body’s demands and participate in physical activities that prevent injury and encourage you to stay active during the week as well.

The Stay at Home Parent

If you’re a stay at home mom or dad with an active little kid who just never seems to run out of energy, you should make athletic therapy your new best friend. Chasing your kid while also managing the dozens of chores and errands that pop up during the day is bound to take a toll on you. Not only that, but the constant movement also puts you at risk of musculoskeletal injuries.
