As an expert in injury prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation, our Certified Athletic Trainers (ATC) are able to share sports medicine expertise in several areas: Wellspring Wellness Center, our Rehabilitation Department, and off site at area schools.
Our collaboration with area schools in injury prevention, diagnosis and treatment is especially important to us. Although the ATC is most noticed during on field emergency and first aid responses to injuries, much of the trainer's job is handled before and after the athletic contest. Prior to competition, athletes are taped, stretched and given treatment to allow pain-free activity. Following an event, athletes seek the service of the ATC for continued rehabilitation to aid in their recovery process. The athletic trainer also provides knowledgeable instruction in the areas of strength training, nutrition, and psychological aspects of sport.
