Our Certified ATHLETIC Trainers

PEAK Sport and Spine’s certified athletic trainers specialize in preventing and rehabilitating injuries to athletes of all ages and abilities. They play a vital role in enhancing an athlete’s performance and work closely with team physicians, athletic directors, coaches, and parents to ensure that athletes compete at their highest potential and avoid injury.

Sports Education Program

In the Classroom

Our Certified Athletic Trainers provide services to local high schools and colleges, not only on-field and in the training room, but also in the classroom. Several high schools provide a Sports Medicine class for students interested in athletic training, or other allied health care professions. The sports medicine class covers various topics from basic anatomy to in-depth injuries, prevention, and rehabilitation. Athletic trainers also collaborate with school nurses and administrators when a student-athlete sustains an injury, for their return to school and sports.  Our ATC’s are in the schools to help with  “return-to-learn” protocols to help those athletes not only heal but also return to the classroom and keep up with their grades following injuries and concussions.

On the Field

Our athletic trainers provide services to more than 20 central Missouri high schools and small colleges. A large part of an athletic trainer’s role is providing “On-Field” services to keep athletes safe. Athletic trainers are generally the first people an injured athlete sees during practice and/or competition. Our athletic trainers in the secondary school setting, collaborate with each other each year to provide the best care for our athletes. During the collaboration each year, all the athletic trainers train and implement our policies and procedures, along with emergency action plans for each venue or athletic event.

Several athletic trainers in central Missouri are also Preceptors or clinical supervisors for college students in collegiate athletic training programs. Peak Sport and Spine’s Sports Medicine Team has been a provider of those services with Central Methodist University for over 15 years. We provide the students with their final skills in preparation for the workforce and their Board Certifications.
