With athletes playing bigger and stronger than they ever have and while our youth athletes are excelling in multiple sports, the number of injuries sustained during athletic competition continues to rise. The media continues to report some of the more serious injuries that athletes sustain and at the same time, athletic organizations at all levels are growing to involve all that want to participate. Unfortunately, as the number of those participating in sports increases, the injury rate is also rising at an alarming rate.
Professional and college teams use Certified Athletic Trainers at their sporting events and now your organization can, too. When qualified medical personnel are not on site, teams rely on emergency medical services for severe injuries, while lesser injuries are often left untreated. With a Certified Athletic Trainer at the event, athletes have a trained professional to help provide injury prevention recommendations and emergency care in the event of an injury. At the same time, the certified athletic trainer can help focus on continued care in the athletic arena while allowing the athlete to continue to play their sport of choice. Having Premier Sports Medicine on hand also allows coaches and organizers to concentrate on their own responsibilities.
