“I just wanted to thank you for wrapping my GKeeper Mako’s right ankle. After a good sprain weeks ago (and previous break) she said that was the best ankle support wrap ever! 😉btw She and her team: Legends FC Temecula valley ‘06 Gold with Coach Carlos Basso snagged the Desert Cup championship title in their division! Thank you for all you do, we are grateful!”

At Your Own Risk

Hi there! 👋 We’d love to share a little bit more about us.

➡️Athletic trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who never stop acting for the health, safety and well-being of their patients. ATs take action every day to reduce the risk of injury for the patients that they serve. Should an injury occur, athletic trainers act immediately to assess, diagnose, treat and refer injuries for specialized care. After an injury, athletic trainers act to rehabilitate patients and get them back to the sport, work and life that they love. Every step of the way, athletic trainers impact health care through intentional, patient centered, compassionate action.

➡️ National Athletic Trainers' Association developed At Your Own Risk, to educate, provide resources and equip the public to act and advocate for safety in work, life and sport. At Your Own Risk is a way of showing key stakeholders that without an athletic trainer on your side, you are left to face the inherent safety risk of living, working and engaging in athletics all on your own. By employing an athletic trainer, YOU provide #ASaferApproach to work, life and sport.

We love our Ben U ATs!

As #NationalAthleticTrainingMonth comes to a close, we would like to recognize our two BenU Mesa Athletic Trainers, Brandie Peterson and MaKenna Hancock, for all they do for our student-athletes!

And if you need any more evidence of the good our AT's provide our student-athletes, why not hear it from the student-athletes themselves! #RedhawksRising #NATM2020

Giants DB Ryan: Trainer helped save wife's life

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30258520/new-york-giants-logan-ryan-says-trainer-advice-helped-save-wife-life

espn.com Giants defensive back Logan Ryan says a team trainer encouraged his wife to go to the emergency room in Florida for what turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy. It was a potentially life-saving decision, Ryan said.

At Your Own Risk

🔹Did you know that athletes who participate in a variety of sports tend to have fewer injuries and end up playing sports longer?

‼️Overuse Injuries can be caused by training errors, improper technique, excessive sports training, inadequate rest, muscle weakness and imbalances and early specialization. Pediatric athletes should only play one overhead throwing sport at a time and should avoid playing the same sport year-round. Participation in multiple sports throughout the year provides a wider range of skills as well as rest from repetitive, single-sport activities.

Another hat we wear as athletic trainers that people do not realize!

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day.

Athletic trainers (ATs) have a unique patient-provider experience in the health care world and play a critical role in advocating for their patients’ physical and mental health needs.

As part of the primary medical team for student-athletes, ATs are often a trusted adult whom the patient feels safe sharing with on a daily basis. These interactions help ATs notice when a patient is struggling with stress from school, anxiety related to return to play or more severe mental health concerns, like thoughts of suicide. ATs refer patients for mental health care, activate mental health emergency action plans to keep athletes safe in times of crisis and help normalize discussions around mental health.

On and off the field, ATs help SAVE LIVES.

If you or someone you know is in crisis, seek help by calling 800-273-TALK (8255) to reach a 24-hour crisis center or dial 911 for immediate assistance.

This is one of my favorite pictures, especially now being 28 weeks pregnant. This is a woman sports medicine physician. She is 34 weeks pregnant, her husband was out of town, her child care for her three-year old fell through, and she had a game to work. This is her on the sideline taking care of an athlete. As a woman in healthcare, business owner and a soon to be mom, she is such an inspiration!

The Invaluable Value of an Athletic Trainer - atyourownrisk.org

ATs are so valuable, especially when we see an increase in heat related deaths this time of year!

atyourownrisk.org One of the most common adjectives used to describe athletic trainers is invaluable. According to Merriam Webster, invaluable means “valuable beyond estimation” or “priceless.” Considering the services and care that athletic trainers provide, invaluable is an understatement in many cases.
