You do not need to be an athlete to see Judy;
her ideal client is a motivated individual with a positive attitude willing to take the necessary steps to deal with their injury to pursue their goals. Judy has 20 years of experience that encompasses clinical work in multi-disciplinary clinics, owning a clinic for 13 years in Canmore, Ab., touring with Cirque du Soleil, and being a team therapist for several sports.
To be successful, an individual needs to better understand their body, and what occurs during the body’s return to its non-injury state. It’s Judy’s goal to direct you through this process, providing clients with the tools and knowledge to return to sport or an active lifestyle quickly and with a greatly reduced risk of further injury.
Best known for returning professional and elite athletes back to their sport after an injury, Certified Athletic Therapists use the same sport medicine approach to quickly rehabilitate your injury – resulting in faster recovery, reduced chance of further injury, and fewer visits to your health care professional.
Clients can expect one-on-one attention during their visit, with an active aggressive approach to injury rehabilitation. A typical visit employs a combination of methods such as manual therapies, soft tissue mobilizations, dynamic exercise, therapeutic modalities (Electrical Modalities, Laser, Ultrasound) and detailed home programs to accelerate their progress.
Athletic Therapists can:
- Diagnose and Treat Acute injuries: Sprains and Strains
- Assist in your rehabilitation of a Motor Vehicle Accident with manual Therapy or Exercise Rehabilitation
- Diagnose and Treat Chronic Repetitive injuries
- Preparation and Maintenance Care for Sporting Events
