KUA’s athletic trainers provide health-care services that focus on the prevention of injury, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries or other medical conditions. The athletic trainer is responsible for providing health care services designed to prevent injury and maintain the athlete's ability to compete safely at the highest level. Our athletic trainers provide early evaluation and treatment of athletic injuries while educating athletes in their prevention and recognition.
