How does instant injury relief sound?
I am sure that had to get somebody’s attention… Feeling 100%? Who does not want that? And instantly? It is a dream come true for every athlete. The thought that all you have to say is, “Fix my injuries” and they are fixed!
I’ll throw this out there right away; I’m no longer an athlete. While I occasionally pretend to take a couple of laps around the rec center, I’ve been out of competitive activities for years. And let’s be honest, I wasn’t very impressive when I was playing.
I’m sure some of you don’t know what traditional Athletic Trainers do so, in short, our job is to prevent, evaluate, treat and rehabilitate athletic related injuries.
I know most of you won’t believe me when I say I put in more hours than you do. Yes, it’s true. I’m required to report before practices start and naturally stay after practice. Of course, this all depends on the team’s schedule.
