Athletic Trainers

How Can an Athletic Trainer Help Your Company?

Most people think of an athletic trainer as someone who cares for athletes. Employees often suffer the same types of injuries as athletes, whether performing tasks on the job, participating in activities after work or simply doing chores at home. Athletic trainers can help reduce workers’ compensation cost, disability durations and improve your organization’s bottom line.

Orthopedic Evaluation

Athletic trainers perform full orthopedic or musculoskeletal exams to quickly diagnose the cause of injury or pain. Together with Spectrum Health Medical Group Orthopedics and Sports Medicine providers, our athletic trainers focus on helping your employees heal, improve their performance, prevent further injury and achieve their individual health goals.

Education and Prevention

Spectrum Health athletic trainers help your employees avoid injury and stay healthy with job-specific conditioning. They can help identify physical stressors and recommend individual job modifications so employees can perform their best.

Rehabilitation and Return to Work

After an injury, our athletic trainers can help your employees regain the ability and confidence to return to their full capacity at work as soon as possible.
