FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Am I the right client for MOUNTAINFIT?
Do you want to be active for life without aches or pains holding you back? Then YES! We treat athletes of all levels who are dealing with musculoskeletal aches and pains. Our mission is to allow you to be a mountain athlete for life.
What is an Athletic Trainer? Are you like a Physical Therapist? Personal Trainer?
Taken from the National Athletic Training Association: Athletic Trainers's provide "prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries... Athletic training is recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA), Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as an allied health care profession."
Typically, athletes only see a Physical Therapist once they have suffered an injury, but you can see an Athletic Trainer at any time for any orthopedic reason :) We also are able to look at and asses the entire body as it may relate to your pain/injury vs. the limitations of what a Physical Therapist can assess based on a script. We provide programming focused on injury prevention- movements and exercises that will help you perform your sport better and with a reduced risk of injury. If you're looking to shed 10lbs and look sexy for bikini ski season, we'd love to ski with you, but we recommend you hire someone else.
