Athletic Training

Athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.  Athletic trainers collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and proper care for various medical conditions.

Athletic trainers are sometimes confused with personal trainers.  The athletic training curriculum and clinical training follow the medical model.  All athletic trainers must graduate from an accredited baccalaureate or master’s program, and 70% of athletic trainers have a master’s degree.

Our athletic trainers provide a valuable medical resource to local school systems and other athletic events in the greater St. Louis area. In the event of an injury, there is a medically trained person who responds at a moment’s notice to provide immediate care for an injury. These injuries can range from bumps and bruises to ankle sprains, fractures, asthma attacks, concussions, or cervical spine injuries.

It’s important to have an athletic trainer on hand that is not only experienced but also confident, focused and prepared for anything.

The athletic trainer must be prepared to handle the injured athlete, coaches, parents, school administrators, media, and other summoned medical personnel at the scene of a sports injury. Many times these situations occur in inclement weather, strange situations or unanticipated events.

The athletic training program at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy pride itself on going the extra mile for athletes in the greater St. Louis community.  We stay up to date on the latest research and guidelines for concussions, heat illness, weight management, and other conditions.

Our goal is to continually raise the standard of medical care given by its athletic trainers in our service areas. We provide exceptional care by employing only highly skilled and caring individuals.
