Despite the title, Athletic Therapists treat more than just athletes.
Athletic Therapy clients can range from the weekend warrior to an individual with a workplace injury. Though athletic therapists are usually seen as first-responders on the field at major games and tournaments, they also use their knowledge in a clinical setting. With knowledge in anatomy, exercise physiology and biomechanics, athletic therapists are able to effectively prevent, treat, and rehabilitate chronic or acute injuries.
By using various manual therapies, modalities, taping techniques and exercise prescription, athletic therapists help you get back to your daily life. That can mean getting back into training for a competitive tournament or walking your dog. Whatever your finish line, our athletic therapists will help you reach it.

Recovery for all levels
Elite specializes in injury recovery for all sports and levels of athlete. Our team facilitates rapid access to complete recovery. Frequently, we see patients within a day or two of their physician exam when return to full function is critical. We immediately address acute swelling, pain and compensatory issues and initiate a home program to maintain strength and motion.
In order to ensure a successful treatment and speed recovery, you need to be fully committed to your treatment plan. Your time in the clinic is only part of the process. The exercises and perhaps changes in your own behavior are a crucial part of your plan. We know how your body works; we may identify an underlying weakness, poor posture, work habits, or other factors that contribute to the problem.
