Athletic Training

What is Athletic Training?

Athletic training is more than working with athletes. The service covers the prevention, evaluation and management of sudden and ongoing conditions that can impair your movement and abilities.

Athletico’s Certified Athletic Trainers

Our certified athletic trainers (ATs) are highly skilled health professionals who work under a physician’s direction to provide optimal healthcare for athletes. They know how to help you reduce the risk of injuries, provide care for a sudden injury and guide the entire course of your recovery. All of our ATs are licensed professionals whose education includes specialized training in human anatomy and physiology. Based on these qualifications, as well as the specific regulations to practice athletic training in many states, the AT is the most qualified individual, other than a physician, to manage high school and youth athletes’ injuries on a daily basis.

By working with our ATs, everyone involved in the continuum of care of student-athletes, from physicians to coaches to administrators and parents, can feel confident that a professional is caring for the health and safety of young women and men. Having a licensed AT available for emergency situations ensures athletes receive the highest standards of care when they need it.

Your Certified Athletic Trainer’s Background

In addition to their degree, our licensed ATs have fulfilled the requirements for certification (including passing certification examinations) established by the Board of Certification (BOC).

Our ATs are required to have the following proficiencies:

  • Injury/illness prevention and wellness protection
  • Clinical evaluation and diagnosis
  • Immediate and emergency care
  • Treatment and rehabilitation
  • Organizational and professional health and well-being
