March is National Athletic Training Month!
Athletic Trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize patient and client activity and participation in athletics, work and life. The practice of Athletic Training encompasses the prevention, examination, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, subacute, and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions and certain medical conditions in order to minimize subsequent impairments, functional limitations, disability, and societal limitations.
Athletic Trainers’ work settings can include high schools, colleges, universities, professional sports teams, hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, physicians’ offices, corporate and industrial institutions, the military, and the performing arts. Over 70% of athletic trainers have received their master’s degree in Athletic Training or a related field.
Athletic Trainers with Physical Therapy Consultants, Inc. work with athletes and patients within all our area Physical Therapy clinics, provide outreach coverage to St. Francis High School athletic teams, and consult with a large area distribution center to help keep employees working at their safest and most productive.
