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
