Athletic Training in the Community
Our sports medicine team participates in multiple programs designed to benefit the community.
Public safety and first responder wellness
Kettering Health athletic trainers provide assessments, injury prevention, and injury evaluations for our public safety officials and first responders. This guidance helps our public safety officials stay healthy and safe as they serve the people of our community.
Our athletic trainers also work in select local YMCAs. These athletic trainers provide one-on-one assistance to YMCA members.
They guide members returning to routine workouts after sustaining an injury and teach them how to practice injury prevention. They also care for members who experience an injury on site.
Local sports teams
Many of our athletic trainers work closely with our local student and professional athletes (on and off the field).
Having certified athletic trainers on-site allows us to immediately assess a player’s injury, discerning whether a player can return to the game or needs more medical attention.
