Athletic trainers are vital practitioners in the delivery and advancement of health care. Athletic trainers are an integral part of the inter-professional health care team uniquely qualified to treat sports injuries on and off the field.
At DOC, we proudly support the men and women of the athletic training profession as they work toward creating and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for America’s athletes.
“Athletic trainers facilitate treatment of injuries and monitor recovery so that athletes are not returned to play prematurely. This likely explains the lower rates of recurrent injuries in schools with athletic trainers. … Concussed athletes are more likely to be identified in schools with athletic trainers and thus more likely to receive proper treatment,” concludes Dr. Cynthia LaBella, MD, FAAP
