Athletic Trainer

Through a parternship with RWJ Somerset, all Rutgers Club Sport athletes benefit from having access to an on-site certified athletic trainer. Certified athletic trainers are here to evaluate, treat, and rehab your injuries.

As a health care professional, proper care of an injury and getting you back to full participation is our primary goal.

Services include:

  • Practice/game prep (taping, bracing, stretching, warm-up)
  • Evaluation, treatment, and rehab for all orthopedic injuries (both acute and chronic), such as:
    • Head injuries (concussions)
    • Joint sprains and muscle strains
    • Bone injuries (bruises, fractures)
    • Overuse injuries
  • Qualified to provide treatment approaches including manual therapy, corrective exercise, stretching, and reconditioning
