Request an Athletic Trainer

Ahletic TrainingMohican Sports Medicine employs several physical therapists and athletic trainers serving local high schools. Our athletic trainers provide on-field coverage for practices and games, consultation to coaches on sports conditioning and medical needs, and serve as liaisons between injured athletes, parents, coaches and physicians.

We believe in treating sports injuries quickly and we are always available to see serious injuries the same day. Our Saturday Morning "Bump and Bruise" Clinic is open during fall season for school-age athletes of any sport who are injured in practice or competition.

What is an Athletic Trainer?

According to the National Athletic Trainers Association, "athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers who are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities."

Students who want to become certified athletic trainers must earn a degree from an accredited athletic training curriculum. Accredited programs include formal instruction in areas such as injury/illness prevention, first aid and emergency care, assessment of injury/illness, human anatomy and physiology, therapeutic modalities, and nutrition. Classroom learning is enhanced through clinical education experiences. More than 70 percent of certified athletic trainers hold at least a master’s degree.

Is Athletic Training and Personal Training the Same?

Athletic training is not the same profession as personal training. Certified athletic trainers also work with more than just athletes – they can be found just about anywhere that people are physically active.

To become certified athletic trainers, students must:

  • Graduate with a bachelors or masters degree from an accredited professional athletic training education program; and
  • Pass a comprehensive test administered by the Board of Certification.

Once certified, athletic trainers must meet ongoing continuing education requirements in order to remain certified.
