Michelle Cordero shares with us “How she uses a holistic approach when taking care of her athletes.“
- Athletic Trainers are part of the Sports Medicine team and are usually the first to the athlete when injured.
- Also are behind the scenes to prevent injuries from happening.
- Share what puts the female athlete at risk for injuries- training, nutrition, maintenance.
- The goal is to break down the injury to relatable terms so they can understand what is going on to their body.
- Avoid generalizations and bring back information put into context.
