Bone & Joint’s Athletic Trainers care for area athletes in support of our local high schools. They keep athletes safe by providing athletic training coverage at no cost.
Athletic trainers work in medical clinics, athletic departments, schools, and sports teams of all levels. They help athletes prevent injuries, provide acute care for injuries that occur during sporting events, and aid in the athlete’s recovery from injury.
Athletic trainers care for athletes before, during, and after sporting events. They provide:
- On-site assessment of acute injuries during sporting activities.
- Taping, splinting, and bracing injuries.
- Post-injury follow-up care.
Athletic trainers are an extension of Bone & Joint’s orthopedic care team.
While providing comprehensive care to athletes, athletic trainers work with physicians, physical therapists, and other health care providers, to ensure athletes safely return to sports following an injury.
