Our certified athletic trainers work alongside our orthopaedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists to deliver a comprehensive care experience for area athletes.
Their services include the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of various injuries and conditions.
Watson Clinic’s athletic trainers also provide care for various high school sports teams in the area, and attend their afternoon practices and games. The athletic trainers work as liaisons between the coaching staff and the physicians to help facilitate medical treatment, increase the communication and accelerate return to play.
This level of personalized attention provides students with unrivaled access to Watson Clinic’s quality of healthcare services. For instance, if an injury occurs, the athletic trainer assigned to that team immediately goes into action, examining the injured player, formulating a diagnosis and scheduling them for fast-track follow-up care. Most injuries can then be treated by Watson Clinic’s orthopaedic surgeons within 24 to 48 hours.
