Sports and Athlete Rehabilitation Edmonton​

At Milestone Physio & Wellness Clinic, we understand that whether as a professional or amateur athlete, sustaining injuries is unavoidable but can be minimized. However, despite sustaining injuries, suffering from intense pain for a while can impact your recovery process. Therefore, when an athlete is suffering from any form of sports casualty, getting immediate and proper treatment is necessary in order to save time.

As an athlete, injuries can affect your physical, mental, and emotional health. However, with the help of a physiotherapist, they can assist you in recovering swiftly using therapeutic treatment such as sports rehabilitation. They will focus on easing stress, anxiety, pain, and other underlying conditions that accompany the injury. In addition, they will ensure the treatment plan addresses your physical, psychological, and nutritional health.

Who is a Sports Physiotherapist?

A sports physiotherapist is a therapy provider who has passed through the basic training and certifying program, such as a Diploma in Sports Physiotherapy, from Sports physiotherapy Canada (a Division Of The Canadian Physiotherapy Association). The diploma holder has experience in providing regular medical attention to both novel, amateur, and professional athletes in Canada. The educational system of SPC ensures that a physiotherapist acquires the required experience and education through courses related to protective equipment, concussion management, athletic taping, exercise prescription, and emergency care. In addition, this gives the physiotherapist the benefit to as well gain significant field experience by working closely with a certified and experienced physical therapist during their mentorship program.

Currently, in Canada, there are approximately 400 physiotherapists who have attained the certificate level in Sports physiotherapy. And over 300 physiotherapists who are holders of Diploma in Sports Physiotherapy. The experience gained during both programs helps a physiotherapist to get significant skills and experience needed to address different sports injuries, as well as guide athletes through the safe approach while returning to sports. All physiotherapists undergo an examination process that is coordinated by Sport Physiotherapy Canada. The examination helps therapists achieve high therapeutic standards when providing treatment. Sports physiotherapists also acquire additional skills in orthopedics during their diploma training process. Also, they understand the biomechanics of sports and common underlying possible causes that may occur with injuries.
