Athletic Training

The OIWK Therapy Center Athletic Training Department partners with local schools to provide injury prevention services, on-site injury care, and rehabilitation to student-athletes. 

Our athletic trainers are present for school sports practices and games to offer athletes first-aid care as needed. They also have direct access to OIWK physicians so students can get fast treatment for injuries and receive effective orthopedic physical therapy as needed. 

The Orthopaedic Institute values athletic programs in our local schools. As a strong community partner, we prioritize students by preventing and treating their injuries and caring for them through rehabilitation. We are also incredibly proud of the community relationships we have built through our athletic training services. You’ll even see OIWK physicians at several local games.
