What is an athletic trainer (AT)?
Athletic trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnoses, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. AT’s are experts at recognizing, treating and preventing musculoskeletal injuries. ATs meet qualifications set by their Board of Certification and adhere to the requirements of a state licensing board. Once certified, they must meet ongoing continuing education requirements. They practice under the direction of a physician. In the LMSD, the high school ATs cover all PIAA games, events and practices. They are ImPACT Trained Athletic Trainers (ITAT).
