Athletic Trainer by Tannah Evans
Transcript of Athletic Trainer by Tannah Evans
Debs Day of life
10:00 am – 1:30 pm
Working at medical clinic doing clerical work, which could include filing patient charts and scheduling appointments for patients. I could also be double-checking medical records to make sure names are spelled correctly and that the medical forms are filled out correctly.
1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Having a quick lunch and traveling to the high school.
2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Arriving at the high school and helping athletes who come in for treatment by doing things like taping their ankles, knees, and wrists with adhesive tape before any games or practices. I am responsible for preparing a trainer’s first aid kit for games and practices and making sure these kits have enough gauze, tape, bags of ice, and other medical supplies. I could be helping athletes with their treatments, such as supervising a track and field athlete getting her ankles taped, showing her stretching exercises for her sore back, and giving her hot towel pads to place on her back for 20 minutes. I also spend time treating other injured athletes with ice or heat, depending on the injury.
4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
I go out to various practices and games at the school so I can treat any injured players. My time is also spent trying to prioritize which games and practices I should attend and checking in with other coaches to make sure their practices and games are going smoothly and that no one needs medical attention.
Chris day of life
7:30 am – 8:00 am
I begin my day by entering the arena for morning treatments, and organizing files, equipment, and supplies.
8:00 am – 10:00 am
I perform pre-skate treatments: providing taping or other types of support as needed, stretching and warming up athletes, as well as applying electrical current treatment to relieve muscle pain.
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
I spend time watching players’ performances for anything unusual.
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
I carry out post-skate treatments, which involve talking to players about any discomfort they are having, massaging limbs, and stretching.
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Next are the rehabilitation programs where I begin working with players who are injured. This involves making sure that they are doing their exercises properly, accelerating the healing process, in addition to monitoring and documenting their progress.
4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
I deliver pre-game treatments including massaging, stretching, and warming up athletes, applying electrical current treatments to relieve muscle pain, and, finally, providing taping or support for players.
7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Game time (on-ice coverage for injuries) is spent repairing cuts so that players can return to the ice, monitoring players while they are on the ice, and assessing injuries to see if they should continue to play or sit out the rest of the game.
10:00 pm – 10:45 pm
I perform post-game treatments: attending to game injuries, settling inflammations with ice, massaging, and gentle stretching.

*Trainers are involved in four aspects of athletes’ health.
1)First, they teach athletes how to prevent injuries by using warm-up techniques and stretching exercises. They also teach them how to use the proper equipment to avoid injury.
2)Second, if an athlete does get injured, the athletic trainer assesses the injury to determine how severe it is and how it should be treated
3)After the injury is treated then the real work begins
4) They get everything for your injury such as braces, tape, and more.
2)They are usually required to travel with the team
