Have you ever noticed that person in khakis along the sideline of any sporting event? They dart out on the field anytime a player goes down, and stretch out tons of muscles along the sidelines. That’s an athletic trainer, and there’s much more to athletic training than you often see. Kinetic Edge’s athletic training team makes sure local athletes and physically active patients stay in top shape to perform and excel in all they do.
Athletic trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions for those who are physically active.
Athletic trainers work in many settings including high schools, college and universities, professional sports, clinical and hospital based settings, military, public safety, industrial, and other dance and recreation activities. Our athletic trainers work with area high school athletes including Pella Christian, Oskaloosa, Iowa Christian Academy, Montzema, Colfax-Mingo, Newton, and Tri-County and also provide services on site for companies regarding preventative and restorative health through pre-work screens, drug screens, and stretch and flex programs.
