Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention with exercise and treatment of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities. Athletic trainers work with active patients, including athletes, to help prevent injuries, offer advice about appropriate equipment, recognize and evaluate injuries, administer emergency treatment, and determine need for specialized medical care. Athletic trainers also work as members of health care teams involved in postinjury rehabilitation.
