Larry Rockwell

Retired Battalion Chief, Greenwood Fire Department

If it wasn't for Forté and Wally and Liz, it was such a benefit to have them. They are the reason I came back as strong as I did. We weren't going to fail.

Mark Myers

Mayor, City of Greenwood

Our public safety officers go from zero to 60 in a second. When something doesn’t feel right, they can easily see the tactical athletic trainer and get preventative care. I’m 100% for that and I want the best for my people.

Michael Diekhoff

Chief of Police, City of Bloomington

For us, it’s a huge benefit because the officers have someone they can consult with, right here at the station, cutting down on time off.

Nate Hill

Shoulder Patient and Police Officer, City of Carmel

Our athletic trainer has been instrumental in keeping us healthy. Any type of minor issue that comes up can drastically turn into something major if left ignored. Now, we can have those things addressed right away

Tactical Athlete
No other program can offer the services and experience that Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics provides under one roof. Guaranteed.

Tactical athletes require specialized care

Cost Effective
As the job demands of law enforcement, fire and rescue become increasingly complex, the need to provide high-quality, specialized healthcare becomes essential. Our embedded athletic trainers deliver orthopedic care in service of those that serve our communities. Acting as a trusted resource, we deliver a cost-effective, efficient model of comprehensive care.
As part of our first-of-its-kind tactical athlete program, we place athletic trainers among teams of public safety officers, first responders and municipal workers. The embedded athletic trainer provides preventative care, health maintenance support, injury triage, immediate care and rehabilitation. They also provide a direct line of access to the region’s top orthopedic specialists trained at the highest levels.
Off site orthopedic
In rare cases, injuries must be sent off site to other orthopedic providers. In those cases, our athletic trainers expedite referrals, and when specialized rehabilitation or surgical intervention is required, they also coordinate care to ensure a seamless transition occurs between providers. No other program can offer the services and experience that Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics provides under one roof. Guaranteed.

Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics’ First Line Tactical Athlete Program provides evidence-based, patient-centered and integrated care that:

Reduces the number, severity and burden of musculoskeletal injuries
Reduces the long-term impact of musculoskeletal issues
Prevents acute and overuse injury
Improves near-term and long-term quality of life
Improves return-to-duty tempo

Benefits of embedding a Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics' athletic trainer in your department.

Injury Prevention

Injury Prevention and Wellness Protection

Athletic trainers are specialists that focus on preventing primary injuries from occurring, and improving quality of life and work by managing conditions rapidly after they occur.
On Site Rehab


For most injuries, athletic trainers reduce time away from work and duty by providing on-site rehabilitation and treatment. This saves time and money for both the tactical athlete and the police or fire department.
Return to Work


Athletic trainers are highly skilled in functional activity and return to play/duty. Athletic trainers within our program work with sub-specialty physicians and rehabilitation professionals to design, build and implement an individualized plan so that tactical athletes can safety return to duty as rapidly as possible.
