Pictured together: ORS Licensed Athletic Trainers, ORS Performance Coach, and Director of Sports Medicine.

 

We are proud to provide Licensed Athletic Trainers for 12 of the mid-Michigan school districts. Athletic Trainers are medical professionals that have a wide range of knowledge that helps to keep student athletes safe and on the playing field. They are trained not only in the initial assessment and care of your everyday injuries, but with the management of major catastrophic injuries as well. An Athletic Trainer's job doesn't stop there. It can include injury prevention, rehabilitation, and knowing when a referral is necessary.
