Athletic Therapy Information

What is Athletic Therapy?

Athletic Therapy is a health care profession that specializes in the prevention, assessment and care of musculoskeletal disorders (muscles, bones, joints) especially as they relate to athletics and the pursuit of physical activity. The services provided can be grouped into three main areas: Prevention, Immediate Care, and Rehabilitation. 

A Certified Athletic Therapist assesses injuries and conditions, uses contemporary rehabilitative techniques, therapeutic modalities, soft tissue mobilization, physical reconditioning, and supportive strapping procedures to promote optimal healing, and preparing the individual for safe reintegration into an active lifestyle.

Who can use the clinic?

Our services are available to any student, whether they have a sport- or exercise-related injury or not.  The clinic at Appleby College is a teaching clinic so you may be seen by a Sheridan College Athletic Therapy student, in addition to the certified therapist.

Clinic Hours

The clinic is open from 10 am to – 6 pm Monday to Friday

Students are encouraged to email or drop in to book appointments.


The clinic is located in the A.W.B. Centre for Athletics and Student Life.
