Re: Athletic trainer in PT practice

Depending on your state, most ATC's act in a similar role as a PT. I worked in a sports medicine clinic for over six years. We had a team approach. I saw my students from the high school that I covered as my own patient load. I also saw many of our other patients. The PT's did the evaluation and I implemented the treatment, charted and did the re-eval on the patients. I also sent documentation of the referring physician. I however, did not work as an aide. You won't find many ATC's, whom mostly all have a master's degree to do the work that only requires a high school education. ATC's can be a wonderful asset to your staff. I also did some marketing to our community to build physician relations and increase our patient referrals with key doctors in our areas.

Each Universal Patella Stabilizer comes with a donut and horseshoe shaped buttress. These buttresses can be trimmed to customize the patellar support.
