It’s National Athletic Training Month and a perfect time to acknowledge the contributions of athletic trainers as an important part of the sports medicine healthcare team.
TSAOG would like to give a special shout out to our fantastic athletic trainers, Bryan Meyenberg, MA, ATC, LAT and Dallas Rainer, BS, ATC, LAT. These talented ATs work in conjunction with our sports medicine specialty trained orthopedic surgeons to provide coverage and support for athletic organizations in and around San Antonio, from middle school sports to community events up to the San Antonio Scorpions.
According to Dr. Brad Tolin, one of TSAOG’s sports medicine specialists, “Athletic trainers are an essential part of a Sports Medicine team. They are typically the first to evaluate an injured athlete on the field. Their skill, knowledge, and close working relationship with an Orthopaedic surgeon are integral elements to successfully caring for the athlete. At TSAOG, we are fortunate to work closely with outstanding athletic trainers at the professional, collegiate, and high school levels.”
Athletic trainers are healthcare professionals who specialize in the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. To learn more about athletic trainers and what they do, visit the National Athletic Trainer’s Association webpage.
