Athletic Training

Supporting local athletes where they learn and play

Guardians and coaches want to see their student-athletes stay in the game, and student-athletes want that, too. So do we. That’s why they all lean on Beacon’s licensed certified athletic trainers for prevention, treatment, medical advice and recovery. Located in local high school and collegiate settings, these experts work full-time with their teams. Whether they’re assessing and triaging injuries, coordinating care, communicating with patients, guardians or coaches our certified athletic trainers  do it all. 

The first line of defense

A sprain, a break, a concussion … when athletes are injured, they need access to immediate care.

Beacon’s certified athletic trainers are the first line of defense and medical care for those participating in physical activity, even spectators. From head injuries to heart attacks, these experts are trained and qualified to treat emergency health needs.

Integrated, connected care

As a part of Beacon Bone & Joint, our certified athletic trainers work with our physicians and other Beacon medical professionals to provide comprehensive care. Guardians, coaches and athletes gain peace of mind knowing that they will have access to the best and most integrated care available. Whether facilitating rehab in conjunction with our physical therapists or helping an athlete’s guardian decide on the urgency of care, our certified athletic trainers are with their team beyond the game.
