“We are health care professionals that specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries,” said Lisa Moore, CHI Health certified athletic trainer.
While personal trainers design fitness programs, certified athletic trainers:
- Diagnose injuries
- Provide emergency care
- Prescribe therapeutic interventions
- Promote injury prevention
“Coaches take their direction on what to do with their athletes from us,” Moore said. “While we care about the teams, we care first about the kids.”
