Like sports? Athletic trainers are certified professionals who collaborate with physicians to prevent, diagnose, and rehabilitate sports-injuries.

Athletic trainers are specialize in emergency treatments for life-threatening and non-life-threatening injuries like head trauma, heart attack, spinal cord injuries, asthma, and seizures before patients can be taken to a hospital. Most importantly, athletic trainers help athletes prevent injury and re-injury through exercise, nutrition, and manipulative treatments.
