Licensed and certified athletic trainers provide quality health care for school athletes through the Floyd Physical Therapy & Rehab program. More than 15 athletic trainers work with schools in Chattooga, Floyd, Polk and Bartow counties, as well as Shorter University.
If an athlete is injured, it's important that they are evaluated and treated as quickly as possible by a team that has the specific experience and expertise for a wide range of sports injuries. That's why our licensed and certified athletic trainers are available to provide onsite medical attention during sporting events.
