Certified athletic trainers are an integral part of the Mercy Sports Medicine team who have been serving the region’s high schools for nearly a decade. Their primary goal is injury prevention, but as allied health care professionals they also are uniquely skilled to provide event coverage and respond to, assess, and treat any injuries that occur during athletic events, including concussions.
Utilizing the ImPACT system, schools and leagues that work with Mercy Sports Medicine have access to the same tools used by professional and collegiate programs. Mercy’s athletic trainers can also coordinate the care of injured athletes if a higher level of diagnostic testing or medical intervention is needed.
