Athletic Therapists are very similar to Physiotherapists. So whether you’re a competitive athlete in your prime or someone trying to have fun and stay in shape, our Athletic Therapist can provide the effective relief of stiffness and soreness that occur as a result of physical activities or day to day life/work.
Here at MyLife Rehab and Wellness, we use our extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and the musculoskeletal system to identify any signs of weakness, lack of mobility, or other limitations in your functioning. In addition, our athletic therapists are educated to address and treat any sports-related injury, whether it be a sprain or dislocation. Your certified therapist can then create a personalized one-on-one treatment plan with you to determine what suits your specific needs.
All treatment sessions are 1-on-1, using various techniques:
- Manual Therapy
- Functional Exercise Programs
- Soft Tissue Release & Trigger Point Release
- Athletic Taping & K-taping
- Ergonomic Correction & Education
- Postural Conditioning
- Prevention & Maintenance Programs

Most insurance companies have Athletic Therapy covered under their extended health insurance. Please contact your extended health insurance company to see what coverage you may have.
If you don’t have coverage, you can still see an Athletic Therapist to get the care you need to get back to the things you love.
In most cases, no!
Athletic Therapists are direct access practitioners and do not need a doctor’s referral to begin treatments. However, in some cases, some insurance companies or plans may require you to provide a doctor’s referral to get the services paid for by your insurance.
Please contact your extended health insurance company to see if a doctor’s referral is required to access your funding.
