High School Sports Medicine Team

December 1, 2012

I consider sports medicine to be very much a team activity and to provide superior sports medicine, there must be a team of professionals in place to make it happen. In this series, I will address those professionals that I consider crucial for a high school sports medicine team. I will post both the “ideal roles” as well as more realistic roles. Over the next few weeks, I will address each profession in detail.

Tonight I have provided a brief outline of the series. I consider these individuals very important to providing the best care to the student-athlete.

  • Certified Athletic Trainer(s)
  • Team Physician
  • Orthopedic Surgeon
  • Primary Care Physician
  • Dentist
  • Physical Therapist
  • Strength and Conditioning Coach
  • School Nurse
  • Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

Please check back each week as I explain why I believe each of these professions is important in providing superior care to our student-athletes at the high school level.
