Who are athletic trainers?

Athletic trainers (ATs) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. You can find QMG’s athletic trainers on the sidelines and in the gym at many area schools.

Why use athletic trainers?

ATs provide medical services to all types of patients, not just athletes participating in sports, and can work in a variety of job settings.

Athletic trainers improve functional outcomes and specialize in patient education to prevent injury and re-injury. Preventative care provided by an athletic trainer has a positive return on investment for employers. ATs are able to reduce injury and shorten rehabilitation time for their patients, which translates to fewer days missed from school, practice or games.
