We’re now welcoming new members at our San Francisco clinic, right in SoMa.
If you’re a clinician who wants to refer patients with musculoskeletal issues, we’d love to help.
Just curious and excited about what we’re building? Sign up to receive big announcements.
At Motion, an athletic trainer is a certified healthcare professional who specializes in the prevention, examination, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, or chronic musculoskeletal injuries. Athletic trainers work primarily under the direction of a Sports Medicine Doctor but also collaborate with chiropractors and physical therapists in clinical settings.
Athletic trainers treat musculoskeletal (MSK) issues — conditions that affect muscles, bones, and joints, and specialize in sport related injury/dysfunction and return to high level competitive activities.
The types of musculoskeletal health care services that a clinician is authorized to provide differ based on specialty. At Motion, an athletic trainer brings specific strengths to the clinical team.
Provide work, event or sport coverage for emergency injury management including musculoskeletal injuries, concussions, or life threatening events requiring CPR.
In collaboration with sports medicine doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists, evaluate rehabilitation progress and recognize deficits in mobility, stability, or strength.
Perform various hands on or instrument assisted therapies to soft tissue structures including myofascial release or stretching to assist with pain, swelling, muscle tension, or other restrictions.
Recommend exercises aimed to correct imbalances or strengthen injured/weak body regions to aid in rehabilitation and recovery.
Recommend therapeutic exercises and tasks to independent remote members to perform at home to aid in strengthening, rehabilitation, and recovery.
Coordinate care with other clinicians and collaborate to provide the best care possible, utilizing the various strengths and specializations of other musculoskeletal care providers, including outside referrals to other specialties if necessary.
