A Typical Day In The Life of an Athletic Trainer
The typical day for the athletic trainer varies with the level of competition, employment setting - traditional, clinical, industrial, and corporate - and other institutional requirements.
Some high school athletic trainers are hired by school systems and may also teach. These individuals must manage their time carefully to ensure students receive professional academic instruction in the classroom and quality health care in athletic endeavors.
Before practice, the athletic trainer tapes, bandages, wraps, braces and completes similar preventive measures.
During practice, the athletic trainer evaluates injuries and determines whether to refer athletes to a physician or follow standing orders and manage minor injuries. The athletic trainer must ensure continual communication between the injured athlete, physician, coach and family on when and how the athlete can return to practice and competition.
As specialist in the prevention, recognition and rehabilitation of injuries incurred by athletes, athletic trainers must administer immediate emergency care and - - under the supervision of a licensed physician - - use the knowledge of the injuries incurred by the physically active individuals and the factors influencing them to develop a treatment based on medical, exercise and sports science.
