As an athletic training and sports medicine clinic, we strive to prevent injuries from occurring, evaluate, assess and manage injuries when they do occur and provide wellness initiatives to help people thrive through movement.
We believe in whole-person healthcare driven by evidence and patient-centered care. We believe in providing equitable care for all people who want to be active. We want to prevent injuries, if possible, through fundamental screening programs, rehabilitate injuries using evidence-based practice and goal setting, and improve performance and efficiency in movement so people will enjoy exercising.
What is Athletic Training
Athletic Training is the medical care provided by a Certified Athletic Trainer.
Athletic Trainers are highly skilled healthcare providers specializing in prevention, assessment and management of injuries and illness that can happen to active people.
but i am not an 'athlete'
If you want to move better and pain free, you are an athlete.
If you were injured during exercise, or something is preventing you from exercising, then Variable Movement is where you want to be!
Do I need a Referral?
You do not need a referral to see an athletic trainer.
Here at Variable Movement, we often co-treat patients with other providers in the area including Physicians, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, and Acupuncturists!
Do you take insurance?
We do not directly bill insurance companies.
We can give you a "super bill" which allows you to submit to your insurance company.
In order to have all of the information for you we need a diagnosis and referral from a provider who can diagnose in the state of Maine. This includes a Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, Physician, Nurse Practitioner etc.
