    Athletic trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize patient and client activity and participation in athletics, work and life. The practice of athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination and diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, subacute, and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions and certain medical conditions in order to minimize subsequent impairments, functional limitations, disability, and societal limitations.
    Athletic trainers’ work settings can include high schools, colleges, universities, professional sports teams, hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, physicians’ offices, corporate and industrial institutions, the military, and the performing arts.  Regardless of their practice setting, athletic trainers practice athletic training (or provide athletic training services) according to their education and state practice act.
    These days people are more active, more interested, more educated than ever before. We’re trained in fitness, sports, computer applications – even parenting.  You can’t accurately describe anyone using simply the word “trainer.”  Here are some differences between an athletic trainer and a personal trainer.
