Even with the best pre-season preparation, the latest coaching methods and the most advanced protective equipment available, athletic injuries and illnesses may still occur. The Converse Sports Medicine team’s primary responsibility during athletic events is to care for the athletes—of both the home and visiting teams—participating in the game.
Converse athletic trainers, who are on-site for every contest, are certified by The National Athletic Trainers' Association Board of Certification Inc. and The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. They are trained to administer the following forms of treatment on-site:
- Electrical stimulation
- Therapeutic massage
- Hot and cold whirlpools
They also develop individual rehabilitation programs, and are responsible for maintaining the athletic training facilities.
A partnership with the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System (SRHS) affords Converse student-athletes the very best in professional medical care. A grant from SRHS ensures that Converse has access to the latest sports therapy equipment both on-campus and beyond. Our “Sports Medicine Pathways” initiative alerts emergency room personnel prior to an athlete’s arrival, thus expediting the admissions process and providing faster access to an orthopedic specialist or family doctor.
