Athletic Trainers, Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and Sports Nutrition Specialists

Athletic Trainers (ATs) are highly qualified, multiskilled health care professional who render services or treatment under the direction or in collaboration with our physicians, in accordance with their education, training, and state’s statutes, rules, and regulations.

When an athlete is injured athletic trainers are there to assess the injury and provide the necessary care. Our athletic trainers also assist in the orthopedic clinic with providing pre-operative education, gait/crutch training, DME (durable medical equipment) fitting, splinting, and casting.
