USA Lacrosse Recognizes Our National Teams’ Athletic Trainers

USA Lacrosse Recognizes Our National Teams’ Athletic Trainers

National Athletic Training Month is held every March in order to spread awareness about the important work of athletic trainers.

These health care professionals in the field of sports medicine specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating muscle and bone injuries among athletes of all ages.

They are also the first ones on the field to render assistance to an injured athlete, and often times the ones helping to oversee rehabilitation programs to get injured athletes back on the field.

“Athletic trainers are really just a wonderful resource to be in as many athletic participation environments as possible,” said Dr. Richard Hinton, medical director at MedStar Sports Medicine and a member of the USA Lacrosse Sports Science and Safety Committee.

The athletic trainers for the various U.S. men’s and women’s national lacrosse teams spend countless hours in supporting these elite athletes in their quest for gold medals and world championships.

USA Lacrosse extends its thanks to the wonderful professionals who serve in these roles for our national teams, as well as those who serve at all levels throughout the lacrosse community.
