Athletic trainers play a significant role in the management, prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of injured athletes. Under the supervision of a licensed physician, athletic trainers administer immediate emergency and follow-up care. They develop athletic injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation programs using their knowledge of biomechanics, anatomy and pathology.
They also provide a vital communication link between the injured athlete, the physician, the coach, and the athlete's family to determine the best time for return to practice and competition.
