About Our Athletic Trainers

Athletic trainers work closely with professional and student athletes to help them keep performing their best. Our ATEAM – Athletic Training Education And Medical Program – is designed to protect athletes, provide knowledge and insights to play safely and prevent injuries. Trainers are also there to aid in recovery, helping athletes of all ages return to the game faster and as confident as they were before.

Broken bones, muscle tears, joint sprains and concussions are common injuries for athletes competing in a wide variety of sports and games. Having an athletic trainer on the sidelines during competitive sports helps ensure that if a student athlete is injured, they can receive expert medical care immediately and prevent further complications or issues.

Athletic trainers that are a part of the ATEAM program in Western New York are specially trained to work with athletes as part of their recovery from an injury or surgery. They participate in annual continuing education programs, keeping them sharp on the sidelines. They work one-on-one with athletes to help them redevelop or restore motion and control and recover any lost movement on function that may have happened during the healing process. This rehabilitation work is key to ensuring that athletes can recover completely and quickly so they can get back in action.

As a comprehensive orthopaedics and musculoskeletal care practice, UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine can help with the diagnosis and recovery of a wide range of injuries and issues for athletics. We work with pediatrics and youth athletes through professional sports players, including members of the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres.
