What is Local Athletic Therapist

A local athletic therapist uses the Sports Medicine Model of care to help with patients who have a wide range of heart conditions including COPD and heart failure. Whether you are recovering from a cardiac ablation, heart valve surgery or a stroke, a local athletic therapist will use techniques such as manual therapies, exercise, stretches and bracing. A local athletic therapist can help patients move through the stages of a cardiac rehab program using F.I.T.T. principles. There are four stages of a cardiac rehab program a local athletic therapist can help you with: in-hospital, post-discharge, exercise/education and maintenance

. A local athletic therapist may work closely with your local cardiologist to create a safe and healthy exercise plan to improve functionality, mobility and flexibility. The goal of local athletic therapists is to get their patients back to their daily activities by rehabilitating and reconditioning their musculoskeletal system. Working with a local athletic therapist may even help prevent heart disease or a future cardiovascular event such as a heart attack. A local athletic therapist can be a great addition to your healthcare team and can work with your medical providers, including your local registered dietitian, endocrinologist, chiropractor, cardiothoracic surgeon, nutritionist and yoga instructor.

There are a variety of reasons why you might seek out a physiotherapist for hip problems. Bursitis of the hip is the most common cause of hip pain. Osteoarthritis, a degeneration of cartilage in the hip joint, is another. Rehabilitation after hip replacement surgery (often due to arthritis) usually requires the help of a physiotherapist. Athletes can suffer a hip flexor strain when the muscles are overused, overstretched, or forced to hyperextend. Many hip conditions are age-related, such as hip fracture or breakage.
