An Athletic Trainer is a trained professional who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, rehabilitation, and education of injuries related to sports, fitness, and exercise. They work with all types of active people – not just athletes.
Many people use the terms “athletic trainer” and “personal trainer” interchangeably, without understanding how an athletic trainer’s job is different. Athletic trainers can help prevent injuries or the recurrence of injuries, and their expertise in the care of the body is usually more extensive than a personal trainer.

If you’re new to exercise, recently suffered an injury, have pain during your exercise, or want to prevent re-injury, you may benefit from working with an athletic trainer. But anyone who wants to stay safe during exercise or just wants to learn more about injury prevention should consider talking to an athletic trainer.
