Athletic Training

At Sentara, we work with certified athletic trainers in our community to keep our area athletes healthy and safe.

Certified athletic trainers are highly educated and skilled health care professionals who specialize in preventing, recognizing, managing and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. As part of a complete healthcare team, certified athletic trainers work under the direction of a licensed physical therapist and in cooperation with other healthcare professionals, athletics administrators, coaches and parents.

Certified athletic trainers are integral members of the athletic healthcare team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs and other healthcare settings.
