Camosun College is celebrating the grand opening of the new location of its on-campus Athletic & Exercise Therapy (AET) Clinic on Thursday, June 25 from 2pm to 6pm in the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence (Suite 204) on Camosun's Interurban campus. General public is invited to drop by.

This unique teaching facility, an extension of Camosun's Centre for Sport and Exercise Education, offers both a state-of-the-art applied learning environment for Camosun students and exemplary health and wellness services to clients. Senior students in the Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy program work closely with Certified Athletic Therapists CAT(C) and Certified Exercise Physiologists CSEP to assist clients. The clinic is an integral part of the students' education, who upon graduation, may work in many of the local clinics in the future.

The AET Clinic offers fee-per-service appointments in immediate care, reconditioning of musculoskeletal injuries, and health risk assessment associated with prevention and management of chronic disease. Patient care includes:

Athletic Therapy

Initial assessments and follow-up visits, regarding both musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. This service uses contemporary rehabilitative techniques in preparing the individual for safe reintegration into an active lifestyle and fosters an attitude of positive health.

Exercise Therapy

Focuses on fitness and health risk factors associated with onset and management of chronic disease, and with sustainability and/or recovery of functional independence.

Stabilizing Orthotics

Assessment, provision and fitting of stabilizing orthotics, including Dynamic, Static and Postural Scans.
