This is an important time for Methodist Sports Medicine. March marks National Athletic Training Month, which highlights the great work that athletic trainers like ours do across the country. Athletic trainers collaborate with physicians, specializing in the prevention, emergency care, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and sport-related illnesses.
We want to help spread awareness of this important profession, which ensures safety and proper treatment, both of which are essential aspects of sports and many other areas of our lives. In fact, the theme of this year’s National Athletic Training Month is “A Safer Approach to Work, Life and Sport.”
Methodist Sports Medicine has athletic trainers on staff at the following schools in Indiana:
- Fishers High School
- Hamilton Southeastern High School
- Vernon High School
- Cathedral High School
- North Central High School
- Lebanon High School
- Indiana School for the Deaf
- Indiana Fire Juniors Soccer Academy
Methodist Sports Medicine not only works with the schools listed above; we also assist colleges and youth sports programs all over the state.
This month, we will strongly emphasize the importance of athletic trainers in physical education and school sports. Methodist Sports Medicine wants to make sure that even the youngest athletes receive the same kind of treatment we provide to the Indianapolis Colts. We have our athletic trainers to thank for making this possible.
