My name is Alexandra Black and I'm a Certified Athletic Therapist, CAT(C). I hold a Bachelors Degree in Athletic and Exercise Therapy from Camosun College in Victoria, BC. I am an avid rock climber, mountain biker, snowboarder, and hiker, and love spending time in the lakes and mountains of the Kootenays.
I specialize in the PREVENTION, ASSESSMENT, and RAPID REHABILITATION of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. Athletic Therapy focuses on a whole-body approach in order to properly prevent and rehabilitate injuries.
Don't let the "Athletic" part of my profession scare you away, as everyone is an athlete in their own right! Whether you're a stay-at-home parent, a trades worker, a weekend warrior, or a professional athlete; the principles of physical rehabilitation are the same for everyone.
I use various manual therapies, modalities, and exercise prescription in order to safely and quickly return my clients to their work and play. Athletic Therapy is a form of active rehabilitation to get you back to your functional best!
Some services I offer are:
- gait analysis
- sport specific movement analysis
- fascial and soft tissue mobilization
- joint mobilization
- supportive taping and bracing
- custom exercise prescription
Athletic Therapy is covered by the following insurance companies in BC. Please check with your individual plan, as coverage can vary.
