The goal of CAK's sports medicine program is to minimize the risk of injury that can occur during play. Multiple studies have shown having an athletic trainer on campus decreases the risk of injury (or re-injury) and also decreases recovery time.
In the case of injury, each student-athlete should visit the athletic trainer. Each family maintains the right to choose their physician. However, it is paramount that CAK’s athletic trainer remains the conduit for information traveling from physician to coach. Any injured athlete must turn in a release (to the trainer) to resume participation. Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics (TOC)
