Setting the record straight regarding Athletic Trainers

Sometimes the right decision is the most difficult decision. At times, athletic trainers have to make a decision to take a star athlete out of a game. While the decision may be unpopular, Door County Medical Center Athletic Trainer Alyssa Lee says she always keeps the student-athlete and their health as the only deciding factor.

 

During National Athletic Trainer Month, Alyssa Lee would like to set the record straight as to what an athletic trainer is and does.
 


 

Lee went to UW LaCrosse and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in athletic training and a Master of Science degree in clinical exercise physiology from UW River Falls.

 

She says seeing a student-athlete recover completely after a major injury and competing again is one of the most rewarding aspects of athletic training.

 

Lee and the entire team of Door County Medical Center athletic trainers are committed to keeping student-athletes safe, helping prevent injuries, and will do their best to make the right decision regarding injury or treatment, even when the decision may not be what a player, coach or parent may want in the middle of a big game, meet or competition.
