Athletic Training for Student Assistants is the first book of its kind, a simple and concise look at the everyday work of an athletic trainer. This book is geared to the high school level so students can learn about the basics of athletic training while serving as student assistants. It also discusses the supportive role that student assistants should play as part of the athletic training team and helps them clarify their observations as they work with a certified athletic trainer.
Authors Lorin Cartwright and William Pitney are experienced athletic trainers and educators who believe that the student assistant's most important role is to learn as much as possible. Although students cannot perform many of the tasks of a certified athletic trainer, this text is designed to give them an understanding of what they will observe in the training room or on the playing field.
Athletic Training for Student Assistants covers such fundamental concepts as basic anatomy, care of common injuries, first aid, injury prevention, rehabilitation techniques, reconditioning procedures, other health concerns, administrative procedures, and how to become a certified athletic trainer. It also discusses different types of injuries; care and rehabilitation for each area of the body; and how and when to use specific forms of padding, taping, and bandaging.
Athletic Training for Student Assistants takes complicated concepts and makes them accessible and understandable for the high school student. The text helps students understand the role of the certified athletic trainer and prepares them for a possible career in this exciting and challenging field.
