The Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA) is a progressive not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and delivery of the highest quality care to active individuals through injury prevention, emergency services and rehabilitative techniques.
Throughout the month of June the CATA is committed to raising public awareness on the prevention and management of head injuries (concussions) in sport. The CATA and its members are skilled in identifying head injury (concussions) and implementing appropriate management and return to play protocols when they do occur so athletes can safely participate in sport. Head Injuries (concussions) are one of the most difficult injuries to manage in sport today. The CATA strongly encourages all head injuries (concussions) are managed under the supervision of a team of professional sport health practitioners including Certified Athletic Therapists CAT(C), sport physicians and neuropsychologists.

The CATA proudly endorses the consensus statement on concussion in sport developed at the 3rd International Conference on Concussion in Sport, held in Zurich, Switzerland in November 2008. Certified Athletic Therapists routinely utilize a myriad of assessment tools to identify and monitor athletes with head injuries (concussions) from the time of injury to their safe return to play.
