Sports Medicine in Washington, Indiana
Every student athlete deserves his or her best season, every season. The
certified athletic trainers (AT staff) for Daviess Community Hospital
work at schools and sporting events around the region, providing preventive and
injury care for athletes and peace of mind for parents, coaches, and administrators.
Our athletic trainers also assist with patient care in our rehab therapies
and chiropractic departments. Certified athletic trainers are
health care professionals who specialize in preventing, recognizing, managing and
rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. As part of a
health care team, the certified athletic trainer works under the direction of a licensed
physician and in cooperation with other
health care professionals, athletics administrators, coaches, and parents.
Our Athletic Care Team’s Qualifications
To become certified, athletic training students must graduate with a bachelor’s
degree from an accredited athletic training program and pass a comprehensive
test administered by the Board of Certification (BOC). All of the athletic trainers employed at Daviess Community Hospital
are certified by the NATABOC, the national credentialing association for
certified athletic trainers. Athletic trainers must meet ongoing continuing
education standards in
order to remain certified. Additionally, every two years athletic trainers must
complete 50 hours of continuing education credits.
