What is an Athletic Trainer? Athletic trainers are licensed health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize patient activity and participation in athletics. The practice of athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions and certain medical conditions in order to minimize impairments, and functional limitations . The profession of athletic training is recognized by The American Medical Association. The most common athletic training work settings include high schools, colleges, universities, professional sports teams, hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, and physician's offices.
Athletic Training Room Information
The Athletic Training Room opens at 1:00 pm on school days.
Student athletes are encouraged to take advantage of their free time (lunch, study hall) for injury evaluation, rehabilitation, and treatment. Athletic training services are provided until the conclusion of practices and games each day.
When an injury requires further evaluation by a physician, student athletes are required to obtain a written doctor’s note to return to the athletic trainers. The athletic trainers cannot proceed with injury clearance without this written documentation by the physician. It is always easier to get this note while still at the physician’s office; please make sure to ask for one before you leave your appointment.
