Our embedded athletic trainers deliver orthopedic care in service of those that serve our communities. Serving as a trusted resource, we deliver a cost-effective, efficient model of comprehensive care.
As part of our tactical athlete program, we place athletic trainers in teams of public safety, first responder, and municipal workers. The embedded athletic trainer provides preventative care, health maintenance support, and injury triage, immediate care and rehabilitation. They also provide a direct line of access to one of the region’s top integrated centers for orthopedic care. Gone are the days a municipality waits for weeks to get an injured worked in for imaging or expert orthopedic care. Our tactical athletes get treated like the professional athletes they are.
In their daily interaction with the fire prevention, law enforcement, emergency medical services staff, and other tactical athletes they serve, the athletic trainer becomes a trusted resource, serving as both a healthcare provider and patient advocate for orthopedic care and beyond.
Tactical athletes are professionals whose jobs demand a high level of physical activity or exertion. Often public safety, first responder, or municipal workers, tactical athletes include fire fighters, law enforcement officers, EMS workers, parks and recreation personnel, and sanitation professionals, among others.
An athletic trainer is a healthcare provider with a primary role in health and safety. Rather, athletic trainers have advanced skills in physical and occupational health, and are laser-focused on improving a tactical athlete's performance to safely keep them on the job.
Our practice requires athletic trainers serving tactical athletes to have a masters degree or doctorate in athletic training, and/or have successfully completed a long-term fellowship or residency in athletic training. We hold our professionals to high standards so that they can deliver comprehensive care to the organizations they serve.
Having an athletic trainer working daily in your department gives you an on-site resource for cost-effective, direct access care for your employees. From injury prevention to health maintenance counseling, concussion protocols to intensive neuromuscular control programs, we oversee the spectrum of care for your staff.
Having an on-site athletic trainer prevents injuries, streamlines workers compensation cases, covers non-work-related injuries that impact job functions, and keeps staffing levels up through preventative and maintenance care.
In addition to immediate and ongoing care, we’re also backed by a top orthopedic care practice with integrated specialty physicians, imagery, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and DME. Our direct line to Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics expedites care and offers fast access to leading specialists.
