Each year, the month of March is dedicated by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association to bringing information and awareness to the role of certified athletic trainers.  This year’s theme is “Every Body Needs an Athletic Trainer.” 

Often times, the difference in the professions of athletic training and personal training can be blurred. There is, however, a difference:

1. Athletic trainers are considered allied health care professionals, and must meet qualifications set by the Board of Certification, Inc., and the state licensing board.

2. They coordinate care under the direction of a physician and other health care professionals.

3. Athletic trainers are members of a health care profession recognized by the American Medical Association.

4. All certified athletic trainers must have a bachelor’s or master’s degree from an accredited college or university in order to practice athletic training, and must pass a comprehensive exam to earn their credentials.

5. Athletic trainers are experts at recognizing, treating and preventing musculoskeletal injures.
