HD PHYSICAL THERAPY Celebrates National Athletic Training Month this March
Athletic Trainers (ATs) are licensed and certified health care professionals who collaborate with physicians and physical therapists (PTs). The services provided by ATs are comprised of prevention, emergency care, clinical assessment, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and sports-related illness.
The PT and the AT can be critical partners on the rehabilitation team of injured athletes; many parts of an athlete's rehabilitation can be done synergistically by both the clinical PT and the AT. Many PTs will take advantage of their relationship with an AT to help co-create a treatment plan that addresses each individual athlete's specific needs.
At HD Physical Therapy, one of our therapists, Dr. Antonella Martone, DPT, ATC/L, is a licensed physical therapist, as well as a licensed and certified athletic trainer. Combining her years of education and experience in both disciplines has allowed Antonella to become an expert sports medicine clinician; she is highly skilled in preventing, recognizing, managing and rehabilitating injuries that result from athletics and other physical activity.
"For me, each field supports the other, and combining them creates the best possible scenario for the patient or athlete that I am working with," says Martone. "By merging the best of both worlds, people are given the highest quality of care, and achieve the best outcomes possible."
