Caring for Student Athletes

Discover how Essentia Health helps keep student athletes in your community healthy, safe, and playing their best.

High School & College Athletic Trainers

Your local student athletes are committed to making their team, school, and community proud. We want to help. That’s why our sports medicine professionals provide care before, during, and after practices and games. Our athletic trainers may:

  • Educate and advise athletes on injury prevention
  • Conduct baseline testing and post-injury concussion testing
  • Evaluate athletes for injuries and concussions during practices and games
  • Provide preventive care, such as taping
  • Coordinate care for student athletes
