Athletic Trainers Needed
Do you have what it takes to be an athletic trainer?
Athletic trainers work with athletes of all ages and levels to prevent, diagnose, and treat injuries to muscles or bones. They work closely with physicians and other healthcare professionals when advanced medical care such as surgery or MRIs are required for diagnosis or treatment. Since athletic trainers aren't doctors, they can provide only basic medical care. They often work for sports teams, and are able to provide first prompt first aid or emergency care when a physician isn't present. They also apply braces, bandages, and tape to help athletes prevent or recover from injuries. In many instances, trainers also have input as to when an injured athlete is ready to return to the field. Normally, they work with a physician to ensure that an injury is fully healed before giving an athlete permission to resume play.
