Modality and treatment area

The modalities available to assist athletes with their injuries are various forms of cryotherapy, thermotherapy, and rehabilitative exercises. In this area you will find an abundance of ice, a whirlpool that can be utilized for either heating or cooling treatments, and hydrocollator packs.

A variety of methods are used to to shorten rehab time and return our athletes back to their sport in a safe and timely manner. 

Evaluation and Rehab Area

Student athletes who enter the Training Room for either an injury evaluation or to work on returning to competition from an injury, will often times start on one of these tables in our evaluation and rehab area.

Injuries evaluations take place after all teams have been taped and prepared for practices and games. This is to ensure that proper time can be taken without interruptions.

Rehabilitation can occur for both short and/or long-term therapy for their injury. The staff enjoys partnering with the physicians and/or physical therapist of the injured athletes to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation program. Various methods of rehab are utilized within the training room, including strengthening exercises, cardiovascular training, proprioception training, and core strengthening.

Taping Area

The taping area is probably the busiest area of the training room.  Each sport has equal access to this taping area and order is usually established by a simple first-come-first-serve basis.  Occasionally, preference will be given to those athletes who need to get to a game over those who need to get to practice if there is a tight time line.  On average, over 20 athletes will come through this are within the first 15-20 minutes we are open!
