Athletic Training

PT and AT Group Photo

Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.

Athletic trainers are an integral part of our Sports Medicine Team at Colorado Center of Orthopaedic Excellence. On the playing field or court, they act as our “eyes and ears,” keeping the athletes safe and healthy. In our clinic, they serve as a valuable member of our team assisting in the treatment and prevention of our athletes’ injuries. Learn more about our Colorado Springs athletic trainers.
