You might see an athletic trainer at a sporting event, working with an athlete. But most times an athletic trainer is a behind the scenes professional. But do you ever wonder exactly what they do?
Definition of athletic training (per the National Athletic Trainers' Association)
Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians. The services provided by ATs comprise prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. ATs work under the direction of physicians, as prescribed by state licensure statutes.
