Athletic trainers specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating muscle and bone injuries and illnesses. They work with people of all ages and all skill levels, from young children to soldiers and professional athletes.
In almost every sporting event, one will notice athletic trainers on the sidelines. Whether it be professional sports or high school athletics, there is a personal trainer watching and waiting in the case that an athlete needs his or her assistance.
My sister thought it would be fun for me to give you a glimpse of a day in the life of an athletic trainer. My job responsibilities differ quite a bit from day to day, but this will give you a general overview of the professional side of my life.
