What does a Seasonal Athlete do?

Athletic trainers work with athletes and help them rehabilitate through injury or to increase their performance. They assess injuries, work with individuals during their training sessions, and create at-home treatment plans for improvement or healing and recovery. They sometimes rely on various types of equipment to assist athletes when strengthening or recovering.

Athletic trainers concentrate on preventing, diagnosing, and treating muscle and bone injury or illness; they apply protective or preventive devices including tape, bandages, or a brace, and recognize and evaluate injuries. They provide injured athletes with first aid or emergency care and develop and carry out rehabilitation programs for the injured athlete. They plan and implement comprehensive programs for injury prevention and illness among athletes and perform administrative tasks including keeping records or writing reports on injuries and treatment plans and programs. They work under the direction of a licensed physician, and with other healthcare providers, they often discuss specific injuries and provide treatment options. Athletic trainers need a minimum bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with a concentration in science and health-related courses including biology, anatomy, physiology, and nutrition and certification from the commission on accreditation of athletic training education.
