Athletic training services
Effective treatment for athletes of all ages
SSM Health Physical Therapy proactively manages sports injuries for high school sports. Our athletic trainers work as an extension of your team focusing on injury prevention, management and performance for your athletes.
Assisting your athletes
SSM Health Physical Therapy provides comprehensive and high quality sports medicine support to your school.
At the high school level, our athletic trainers are focused on three things:
- Being on-site, visible participants: We manage injuries, safety, performance and the health of your athletes. Whether it’s first aid, head or neck injuries, cardiac issues or emergency care, we take care of injuries on the field. In addition, we’re proactive in making safety recommendations.
- Managing the athletic training room: We are on-site, ordering necessary supplies and creating emergency action plans. After school, we evaluate student athletes to determine who needs quick care, further evaluation and a referral to a physician or specialist. We also manage concussion programs to ensure your athletes receive evaluation and treatment quickly.
- Coordinating appropriate care: If an athlete needs additional care or support, our team will refer them to physical therapists, physicians, nurses or psychologists.
Our athletic trainers are associated with a local center and have the support of physical and occupational therapists. We enhance that clinical connection by having a physical therapist visit your school and provide informed, thoughtful advice on your program.
SSM Health Physical Therapy provides continuous training, mentoring and education to our athletic trainers that results in exceptional care for your athletes and sports team.
