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.
Forté embeds athletic trainers onsite at municipalities to deliver specialized care for public safety personnel. Police officers and firefighters have quick access to biomechanical analysis to identify functional deficits, proactive individualized prevention programs to improve movement patterns, orthopedic evaluation from leading orthopedic surgeons, and regular follow-ups and tactical rehabilitation with the embedded athletic trainer.
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.
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.
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.
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 athletes are professionals whose jobs demand a high level of physical activity or exertion while carrying a load. Firefighters, police officers, EMS, military, and corrections officers are examples of tactical athletes.
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.
