What We Do

Athletic training is often confused with personal training. There is, however, a large difference in the education, skillset, job duties and patients of an athletic trainer and a personal trainer. Athletic trainers provide physical medicine, rehabilitative and preventative services.  Athletic trainers are professionals with extensive education in human anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, nutrition, chemistry, physics, biomechanics, sports injury and illness, modalities, rehabilitation, and sports psychology. Athletic trainers treat a breadth of patients, including but not limited to: professional, college, secondary school and youth athletes, dancers, musicians and military personnel. Athletic trainers work can work in a variety of locations including schools, physician clinics, hospitals and manufacturing plants.

To become certified athletic trainer, a student must graduate with 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, they must meet ongoing continuing education requirements in order to remain certified. Athletic trainers must also work under the direction of a physician and within their state practice act.
