Why you need an athletic trainer at your school

Athletic training needs have spiked in recent years due to the steady increase in the number of middle and high school kids playing after-school sports. In fact, some studies show around 56 percent of school-age children are involved in some type of school sport, and these numbers continue to increase. You might think that the increase in the number of kids playing sports is a good thing, and in many ways it is.

Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control also show that an excess of 3.5 million kids under the age of 14 receive treatment for some type of sports-related injury every year. If your child is one of these many kids, then it’s important that they have the best care available if they happen to be injured while playing or practicing. Medical care as soon as possible after you child’s injury may play an important factor in how much damage their injury does and how long it may take them to recover.
