What do athletic trainers do?

Athletic Trainers are multi-skilled health care professionals trained in preventing, recognizing, managing, and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. They are also uniquely qualified to respond to emergencies, including cardiac abnormalities and heat stroke. Athletic trainers can also help you navigate the process of finding an appropriate physician if a referral for further testing or imaging is needed for a specific injury.
