Physiotherapy VS. Athletic Therapy - TRCC Total Rehabilitation and Chiropractic Centre

Please wait...

When being treated for an injury at TRCC there will be little to no difference between the care you will receive from either profession. All professionals at TRCC treat with a patient centered focus and are well versed in orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injury assessment and rehabilitation techniques. The main differences between Physiotherapy and Athletic Therapy are seen in their scope of practice and educational background.

Physiotherapists have a more diverse scope of practice. Their formal education includes not only orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injury assessment and rehabilitation, but it extends into cardio-respiratory rehabilitation, burn patients, pediatrics, geriatrics, stroke and neurological disease rehabilitation. Many physiotherapists will advance their education after university in an area of interest within their scope of practice.

The education of an Athletic Therapist is completely focused in the area of orthopaedic conditions and musculoskeletal injuries affecting the bones, muscles and joints of the body. Courses taken are specific to assessment, rehabilitation, injury prevention, exercises prescription, supportive taping and bracing, concussion management and emergency care for onsite field work with sport teams.

Physiotherapy and Athletic Therapy are difference professional designations. Patients should always check with their extended health benefits plans to be sure the treatment they will be receiving is covered.

Here's an example of what just one session of Fascial Remodeling can do! This before & after are an hour apart.

RMT Asha started working with this client to prep her for breast reduction surgery. They did 2 prep sessions prior to the reduction, and this treatment was their first one since the surgery 3 weeks ago.

The client reported feeling more breast congestion on her left side post op, but as you can see her entire torso was congested (1). Her whole right side was pulled up (3) and rotated (2), and most of her weight was on her left leg (4). After the treatment, the torso girth reduced, her rotation relaxed (see the belly button position), and her weight was evenly distributed on both legs.

Breast work was modified according to the client's current activity level, surgeon's recommendation, and scar quality.
