The athletic trainer provides emergency service for student-athletes and develops prevention strategies through appropriate training methods and physical conditioning programs. To ensure proper follow-up after an injury, the trainer consults with parents, the school nurse and/or the school physician, in addition to providing rehabilitation strategies for the student-athlete.
