Most people do not know what athletic training actually is. Athletic trainers are the people who take care of you during a sport, but mostly after an injury. There are a few different rules to athletic trainers. They help in prevention of an injury: we recognize early warning signs to many different injuries. They tape, stretch, ice, heat a person before a game or practice so the player can do the most they can. They help in recovery of the injury. A physical therapy- like setting occurs in the training room afterwards. They help in helping during the injury, whether it be a bloody nose, concussion, or broken bones. Athletic Trainers are truly wonderful people!:)
