Evidence Based, Result Driven

Athletic Therapy

What is Athletic Therapy?

Athletic Therapy is a profession that specializes in the prevention and care of musculoskeletal disorders (muscles, bones, joints) especially as they relate to athletics and the pursuit of physical activity.

Athletic Therapists that work in a clinical setting assess and rehabilitate injuries using evidence-based techniques. Treatment can include pain management, postural and musculoskeletal analysis, physical conditioning, functional exercise programs, and sport-specific training.

ATs are also skilled in the use of therapeutic modalities (ultrasound, IFC, TENS, etc) and manual therapy techniques including massage, soft tissue, and low-grade joint mobilizations. At Motion Science Physiotherapy Clinic, we create individualized Athletic Therapy programs for patients in Silver Heights, Winnipeg.

Do I have to be an athlete to see an Athletic Therapist?

Absolutely not! Athletic Therapists work with all sorts of people. You do not have to be an athlete to see an athletic therapist, nor do you have to be injured during a sporting activity. Any muscle/bone/joint-related injury, whether activity or work-related, could benefit from an orthopedic assessment and rehabilitative techniques.


A referral by your doctor is not required to receive an assessment by an AT. However, some insurance plans may require a referral by a physician prior to coverage. Most major providers have A.T. coverage, but we recommend calling your provider to confirm coverage details before receiving treatment.

Your appointment time is reserved just for you. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in the therapists’ day that could have been filled by another patient. As such, we require 24 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Patients who provide less than 24 hours notice, or miss their appointment, will be charged a cancellation fee.
