What is a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC)?
Athletic Training includes a variety of methods for supporting athletic best practices, preventing pain and injuries, aiding injury recovery, and maintaining the fitness of athletes and sports teams.
“Athletic trainers (ATs) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who,” as defined by the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA), “collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.”
Athletic trainers are valuable members of our team. They are the leaders in health and safety in sport. They help facilitate a high level of healthcare, ensure safe participation, improve patient outcomes, and limit unnecessary healthcare costs. Athletic trainers often oversee compliance to state and federal healthcare laws. Employing Athletic Trainers allow organizations to maintain a high standard of care all individuals deserve.
