What is an Athletic Trainer?

An Athletic Trainer works predominately with athletes and other physically active people, to recognize and prevent injuries as a result of physical and sports activities. An Athletic Trainer helps athletes and other active individuals manage and rehabilitate acute, sub-acute, and chronic injuries. Often, Athletic Trainers evaluate and recommend new techniques and/or equipment that assist in the recovery process.
