Expand All Sections. Newer, evidence-based protocols often include six important elements : cognitive rest, physical rest, medication and intervention, transition back to school, graded return to play, and extra considerations for high-risk patients. Physical therapists and chiropractors are not the only professionals specializing in hands-on care. Joint mobilizations, manipulations, traditional massage, and soft tissue mobilization are all becoming integral to athletic training practice.
These and other manual techniques can relieve pain, restore range of motion, and ultimately keep athletes healthier throughout their competitive seasons. Gone are the days when athletic trainers would simply patch up injured athletes and prognosticate their returns to play. The push toward prevention is also leading to new models of care. Holistic, multidisciplinary sports medicine may soon be the norm, and pioneers like Emory Healthcare and the Atlanta Hawks are paving the way.
Likewise, prevention and rehabilitation require consistent collaboration with physicians and other members of the healthcare team. ATs are even becoming commonplace in hospital-based communities and outpatient clinics, employed as casting and orthotic technologists, orthopedic technologists, and sports medicine liaisons. As athletic trainers gain in responsibility and efficacy, they also face greater legal liability — and rules get particularly hard to follow when crossing state lines.
Supported by the NATA, the Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act clarifies medical liability rules to ensure athletic trainers are covered by their malpractice insurance when they travel with their teams. If passed, this bill would ensure the services ATs provide on the road will be deemed to have occurred in their primary states of licensure.
Finally, athletic trainers are expanding their roles to include not just rehabilitation and prevention, but performance optimization. Overall, the field of athletic training is only becoming more diverse, complex, and in-demand. As you hire new ATs and pursue continuing education opportunities, keep these trends in mind to ensure your department is on the cutting edge.
