Oak Brook, IL (PRWEB) March 01, 2012

Asthma, allergies, and diabetic care. These might not be the first thoughts that come to mind when someone thinks of athletic trainers, but these are all conditions that athletic trainers are trained in and prepared to handle related to medical emergencies. March is National Athletic Training Month, and Midwest-based AthletiCo Physical and Occupational Therapy wants to reinforce the National Athletic Trainers Associations message that Athletic Trainers Save Lives.

According to Safe Kids USA, more than 38 million children and adolescents participate in sports each year. Athletic trainers provide athletes with quick access to injury care and assure better results, which lead to a better quality of life. In addition to orthopedic injury prevention and care, here are ten situations that demonstrate how athletic trainers save lives and keep athletes (and fans) safe and healthy.
