The Role of Athletic Trainers

Athletic trainers play an integral part in keeping athletes healthy and on the field. NovaCare athletic trainers work as an extension of the team, focusing on injury prevention, treatment and keeping athletes performing at their maximum potential.

Post-Concussion Syndrome

Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) follows the occurrence of an injury or trauma to the head. Not all people who suffer mild traumatic head injury experience PCS; however, this syndrome may be worse in people who have had previous concussions or head trauma.

Common Running Injuries

Injuries that cause leg pain can be debilitating and are very common in competitive and recreation runners. With an individualized treatment plan, these injuries can be effectively treated with physical therapy.
