Access Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics offers comprehensive athletic training services for several Seacoast, NH area schools. We understand Athletic Trainers play an important role on the sidelines at any youth event and have made a commitment to help fulfill that role for many area schools that otherwise would not have the resources to place an athletic trainer at home athletic events.
