Athletic Therapy

What is athletic therapy?

Certified athletic therapists are best known for their quick-thinking, on-field emergency care of elite and professional athletes. The first to respond when someone gets hurt, they are experts at injury assessment and rehabilitation. It’s that same mix of on-site care and active rehabilitation skills that makes athletic therapists so effective in treating the musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries of all Canadians, whether on the field or in the clinic.

Briercrest athletics has been instrumental in my learning and personal development. This program mentored me and taught me about servant leadership and the importance of authentic relationships.
