I’m an Athletic Therapist

Over the last 8 years of being an Athletic Therapist, I think I’ve been called almost every title in the book:

Physio

Massage Therapist

Trainer

The Stretcher

And the list goes on…

At the beginning of my career this didn’t bother me too much. I just let it roll off my back..Often times it was dependent on the environment I was in. I would think to myself: “Is it worth correcting them?”

Nowadays I make sure I own my title as an Athletic Therapist. That’s who I am, and it’s a profession I am VERY proud of!

Speak up and stick to your guns! Whatever profession you are in, I think it’s important to own who you are and what you do!!

Build in a Recovery Session Each Week

I treat a lot of active individuals and their schedules are full of their favourite sports/activities. This is where a recovery session comes in handy!

Here is a sample of what my week activity-wise looks like. Week to week it could look a little different (more golf preferably), but I always make sure to throw in at least 1-2 recovery sessions. 

Prioritize a recovery day in your schedule. Whether that means a light bike ride and a stretch, a walk, yoga, or just foam rolling in front of the TV one night. This will go a long way!

What Activities Would You Like to do if you Weren’t Injured?

When I assess an injury, one of the questions I like to ask is “What activities or sports would you LIKE to do if you didn’t have this injury?” 

And that’s what I help them try to achieve

For instance if the goal is a push up and the client isn’t confident or is unable to put weight into their shoulder, I like to start with this sequence: weight shifts, move into shoulder taps and progress from there.

Disclaimer: If you have a shoulder injury, please get medically cleared prior to trying this sequence

What are your activity goals and what could be getting in your way?

Book an appointment to get to the bottom of your injury/pain and lets get you back doing what you love!
