With concussions in the news, athletic training has gotten a lot of press recently. I hope that this positively reflects on the profession and provides greater opportunities for growth, new generations coming in and improved salaries and benefits.
Athletic training is a unique profession that deals with several facets of health care including injury evaluation and diagnosis, rehabilitation, fitness and acute care of injuries including first aid and emergency response. With such a broad skill set, athletic trainers are perfect for the collegiate and professional settings that so many people associate them with.
Aside from the traditional realm, athletic training is a great back ground for working in other industries; manufacturing managing the work related conditions that repetitive motions cause, health care and athletic management, high school, club and recreational sports leagues and dance including the performing arts.
If you are serious about a career in athletic training, there will hopefully be plenty of opportunities to do so. If you are involved in the physical activity then consider working with an athletic trainer to get the most out your body and stay healthy during your participation.
