In 2018 the Team attended 179 performances in Canada

The Team consists of over 50 practitioners in many disciplines

The Team strives to help athletes in their rodeo careers by providing pre-event care and treatment, acute injury arena coverage, crisis control, and post-event care and follow up. The Team educates and enables competitors to better care for themselves and their injuries, to ensure they get the most out of their lives and rodeo careers. By providing this care, we have seen a reduction in the number of ‘turn-outs’ by increasing healthy competitors. In 2018 the Team attended 179 performances in Canada including Canadian Pro Rodeo Association rodeos, Professional Bull Riders events, and the Calgary Stampede Rodeo and Chuckwagons.

The Team consists of over 50 practitioners  in the disciplines of athletic therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy that provide on-site attention to rodeo athletes. The CPRSMT also includes a curated network of physicians, sport medicine physicians and orthopaedic surgeons providing post injury care to rodeo competitors.
