Helping you rebuild your athletic abilities
The athletic trainers at Adventist Health Sonora’s Center for Sports Medicine serve in many capacities, acting primarily as a liaison between the athlete, healthcare providers, coaches, school personnel and parents. They are involved in educating coaches, athletes and healthcare professionals. Outreach coverage includes providing on-site care to athletes at local high schools.
Working in conjunction with physicians and physical therapists, these trained professionals have daily contact with you, the athlete.
- Emergency care at athletic practices and events
- First aid for mild injuries
- Taping and techniques for injury prevention
- Education on injury prevention and management
Following an evaluation by one of our athletic trainers, you may be referred to a physician for further assessment, or your athletic trainer may elect to initiate a plan of care and protocol for rehabilitation.
