Hattiesburg Clinic’s Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine team is committed to improving the physical health of our patients. This includes our local athletic community and those who live physically active lifestyles.

We are proud to offer athletic training services for student athletes to 26 area schools and junior colleges in our region. These athletic trainers serve as health advocates for student athletes and help facilitate a plan of care for those with injuries and medical conditions.

What is an Athletic Trainer?

A certified athletic trainer (ATC) is a qualified health care professional who collaborates with physicians to provide:

  • Preventative services
  • Emergency care
  • Clinical diagnosis
  • Therapeutic intervention
  • Rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions

An athletic trainer’s education and clinical training follows the medical model and is not to be confused with a personal trainer.

Athletic trainers are able to treat a wide range of emergency injuries and illnesses, including but not limited to:

  • Concussion
  • Asthma attack
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • Sudden cardiac arrest
  • Heat stroke
  • Sickle cell crisis
  • Spine injuries

Benefit of Having an Athletic Trainer on Your Team

Any physical activity carries a risk, particularly in youth sports. While it may be rare, sudden death and severe injury is a possibility. If a life-threatening situation occurs, having an athletic trainer on-site allows for immediate response.

Athletic trainers work with coaches, administrators and other school district staff to alleviate risk to student athletes and the school. Their job is to consistently monitor students, facilities, activities and daily procedures to ensure that any preventable injury is avoided.

With our athletic training services, our goal is to reinforce the health needs and safety of the student athlete. At Hattiesburg Clinic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, our team takes care of your team.
