The aim of Athletic Rehabilitation Therapy is to promote and maintain the health and physical wellbeing of individuals in all sporting, physical and occupational activity.
ARTC’s can work in a variety of settings, most typically in sports injury clinics, in the general work place, with professional and recreational sports teams/athletes or with national governing bodies (NGB’s) of various sports.
Athletic Rehabilitation Therapy can be divided into four general areas::
- Injury Prevention and Pre-Participation Screening
- On-Field Emergency Care
- Injury Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment
- Rehabilitation and Reconditioning
