Rehabilitation Services also offers an Athletic Trainer to help ensure that high school athletes have the necessary information to prevent injuries. Should an injury occur, the Athletic Trainer is present at all after school practices, regularly scheduled home games, home playoff games and some away competitions. The major role of the Athletic Trainer is to assist in prevention, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate care, treatment, rehabilitation and reconditioning of an athletic injury or illness. When an injury occurs, the Athletic Trainer provides initial assessment, first aid, decisions regarding return to play and parental contact if necessary.
