Tamara Smith Certified Athletic Therapist CAT(C)

SCM Athletic Therapy specializes in musculoskeletal injuries in active people. Basically, this covers muscle, ligament and nerve issues

Scott's ability to treat my injuries has kept me active and playing the sports I love. I've worked with a number of other therapists and never come across someone who understands the physiology of our bodies the way he does. Thanks for keeping me moving Scott!

Scott Morris Certified Athletic Therapist CAT(C)

One of the things that makes SCM Athletic Therapy unique is Scott’s involvement mentoring students.

“Teaching students has always been a pleasure for me, so you will probably find at least one with me at all times.  They come from various schools across Western Canada, including the U of A, Grant McEwan, Nait, Camosun College, Mount Royal University, Red Deer College and even Sheridan College in Ontario, my alma mater.  Some of them are training in Athletic Therapy, some are Personal Trainers, some are heading off to studies in other medical fields.  What they all have in common is a desire for hands on learning.”
