MEMO: Responsibilities of Athletic Therapy INTERNS
Major responsibilities include:
- Dealing with emergencies (life threatening injuries, head injuries, concussions, etc.)
- Covering field work (broken bones, sprained ligaments, cuts, scrapes, etc.)
- Deciding whether or not a player can return to play
For non-urgent problems:
- It is your responsibility to get in contact with the Interns (get their phone number and set up an appointment times)
- Appointments will take place before or during practice if arrangements have been made (practicing players who need taping are a priority even if you have an appointment)
- No pre-arrangements = no consult
- Appointments last about 15 minutes
- Interns are capable of giving basic strength and stretching programs. This is their internship and they are not here to diagnose and treat every player on the field. Brian Olney and Nick Nault are there to supervise them and not to treat everyone.
Practice prep time is from 6:00 – 6:30
- Taping, wrapping, wound covering, etc.
- First come, first served. Priority is given to players who are practicing
- The cost of a roll of tape is $3; bring your own electrical tape ($2 a roll)!
- You will be charged for unreturned wraps
- Take care of foam pads to make them last and speed up taping process
For more serious or chronic injuries
- Make an appointment with Nick Nault, Peter Alevetsovtis or Brian Olney for treatment at the clinic at a discounted rate. For more info call (514) 962-2054
- If you want Brittnie, Adam or Natasha to treat you, then it’s at a super discounted rate and somewhat supervised by Nick or Brian
