As a part of the health care team, services provided by Athletic Trainers include primary care, injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
At Upper Perkiomen the Athletic Trainers work to ensure the health and safety of the sport teams we serve.
