What is an Athletic Trainer?


Certified/Licensed athletic trainers (ATCs/LATs) are medical experts in preventing, recognizing, managing and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. Athletic trainers can help you avoid unnecessary medical treatment and disruption of normal daily life; if you’re injured, they can get you on the mend and keep you on the move.


Athletic training is recognized by the American Medical Association as an allied health care profession, and the AMA recommends certified athletic trainers in every high school to keep <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:country-region>’s youth safe and healthy.


What does an Athletic Trainer do?


An ATC’s day may, for example, include these tasks:

• Prepare athletes for practice or competition, including taping, bandaging and bracing

• Evaluate injuries to determine their management and possible referral

• Develop conditioning programs

        • Implement treatment and rehabilitation programs
