Athletic Training

Athletes are always pushing themselves to achieve new heights of performance and endurance. Today's athletes have an elevated risk of injury due to the physical demands put on their bodies. At some time, whether by accident, competitive injury or as the result of a demanding training regimen, almost every athlete – amateur or professional – will need medical assistance from a trained professional. When they do, OAL’s athletic trainers are there.

Trained for Performance

Athletic Trainers keep athletes performing at their physical best. This means working to help prevent injuries through therapeutic exercise, preventative taping, nutrition and by employing physical therapy modalities that help overcome specific weaknesses or improve balance and coordination deficiencies. Athletic trainers, however, are more widely known for their work after an injury has occurred. Providing first aid in emergency situations, athletic trainers quickly assess the damage and begin the process of treatment.

The Best in their Field on the Field

Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster’s athletic trainers bring a superior level of experience and education to the sports medicine profession. In addition to a bachelor’s degree from an accredited athletic training program many of our athletic trainers have gone on to achieve advanced degrees. All are board certified and licensed by the state board of medicine in Pennsylvania.

OAL athletic trainers are also backed by the area’s most comprehensive orthopedic practice. Because they are part of Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster, they can provide immediate on-the-field access to physicians. When necessary, OAL’s athletic trainers can make an on-the-spot referral to OAL's Orthopedic Urgent Care or the necessary orthopedic surgeon: everything necessary to minimize damage and facilitate healing.
