Importance of Athletic Trainers
Athletic trainers are essential in many settings and can treat a variety of patients. Often, they are the first responders in the event of an injury and are responsible for determining an athlete’s safe return to play when injury occurs on the field or in a game.
Athletic trainers are able to reduce injury, shorten rehabilitation time and prevent instances of re-injury. Our team has made a commitment to help fulfill that role for many Seacoast area schools that otherwise would not have the available resources to place an athletic trainer at home athletic events.
