We utilize the services of a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) to provide daily medical care for our student-athletes. The ATC evaluates athletic injuries, provides treatment and rehabilitation programs and, when necessary, coordinates referrals to our network of physicians such as our Head Team Physician, Dr. James Barber with Southeastern Orthopedics.
Our Sports Medicine system is designed to ensure that injured student-athletes not only receive excellent medical care, but have local access to top-quality physicians. In addition to getting each athlete back on the field as quickly and safely as possible, we also make every attempt to assist our student-athletes in maintaining their class attendance so that they don’t fall behind academically. To that end, we’ve teamed locally with Southeastern Orthopedic (www.myseortho.com) and a whole network of exceptional medical professionals that can manage a wide range of issues. Some of these additional providers would include: Ankle & Foot Associates, Fender-Goggans Orthodontics, Optim Interventional Pain Management - Douglas and for concussion care, Dr. Michael Hoffstetter.
