Athletic Therapy is an orthopedic (meaning: related to the musculoskeletal system) discipline based on the Sports Medicine Model. Unlike physiotherapy, Athletic Therapy does not cover the neurological, respiratory, or cardiovascular systems. Focus areas in athletic therapy do include bone, muscle, and joint injuries, orthopedic assessment, sports injuries and sport-specific rehabilitation techniques. In Canada, professionals who practice Athletic Therapy are recognized as Certified Athletic Therapists or CAT(C)s.
