Sports Medicine and athletic training at CHI St. Alexius Health encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of developing serious or long-lasting injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled professionals who practice in the field of sports medicine. Using their knowledge of biomechanics and anatomy, they develop injury prevention and treatment programs.
Athletic trainers also provide a vital communication link between the injured athlete, the physician, the coach and sometimes the athlete's family to determine when it's right to return to practice and competition. They work with the athlete, family, school and coaching staff to return the athlete to regular play and normal life activities.
