Athletic training services
Effective treatment for athletes of all ages
Saco Bay takes a proactive approach when managing sports injuries for high school and college athletic programs. Our athletic trainers work as an extension of your team focusing on injury prevention, management and performance for your athletes.
Assisting your athletes
At Saco Bay, we provide the best sports medicine support to your school.
In high schools, our athletic trainers are focused on three things:
- Being on-site, visible participants: We manage injuries, safety, performance and health of your athletes. We take care of injuries on the field, whether it’s first aid, head or neck injuries, cardiac issues or emergency care. We are proactive and make safety recommendations.
- Managing the athletic training room: We are on-site, order necessary supplies and create emergency action plans. After school, we evaluate students to determine who needs quick care, further evaluation and a referral to a physician or specialist. We also manage concussion programs to ensure your athletes receive concussion evaluation and treatment quickly.
- Coordinating appropriate care: If an athlete needs additional care or support, our team will connect them to physical therapists, physicians, nurses or psychologists.
Our athletic trainers are connected to a local center and have the support of physical and occupational therapists. We enhance that clinical connection with physical therapists who visit your school and act as a backup therapist providing informed, thoughtful advice on your program.
In college sports programs, we take an even more integrated approach with your team. Our athletic trainers can travel with your team and oversee or assist with your sports department - depending on your team’s needs.
With professional sports, we support teams by providing either physical therapists or athletic trainers.
In addition, our athletic trainers partner with employers to keep workers on the job. We view employees as “industrial athletes.” Our workplace experts, referred to as WorkStrategies Specialists, develop and implement preventative programs to ensure that a company’s workforce remains healthy and productive.
At NovaCare Rehabilitation, we provide continuous training, mentoring and education to our athletic trainers. This leads to exceptional care for your athletes and sports team.
