Student Athletic Training... Gotta love it.

Hi! I'm a student athletic trainer at a high school in Texas. This means that unless something college/professional is submitted, most of these posts will be high school and student related. Also, this is Texas, so lots and lots of football! :)


PANELLING IS A THEME BY MIRANDA

I’m an Athletic Trainer.

samanthadiane:

“Oh… you’re a trainer?”

(NO!  I’m an Athletic Trainer, not a trainer)

“Oh, that’s cool, I wanted to do that.  What do you make?”

What do I make?!?!?

I make an ankle sprain that some say should take 4 weeks to get your athlete back on the field, playable in a week.

I can make wearing a fanny pack and driving in a golf cart with lights look cool.

I can devise your rehab program after a total knee replacement so you can run in that marathon you’ve always dreamed of.

I can tape an ankle before you miss 2 minutes of play.

I can make saving your child’s life easier by explaining “getting your bell rung” isn’t normal, it can be deadly.

I can help you, and your child, survive a heart attack.

I can look at a wrestler’s pee and tell them how much water to drink.

I can make an athlete BIGGER, faster, better.

I can translate “doctorese” from “torn anterior talofibular ligament” into ankle sprain.

I went to college to EARN A DEGREE in more than just “water providing” but also injury prevention, evaluation, rehabilitation, administration, and overall problem solving.

And I do it because I love my athletes, and I love my profession.

Today, I might ice your knee, tomorrow I might save your life.

I hope I make a difference,

what do you make?”
