In partnership with Huntsville Hospital and TOC, JPII is proud to offer a full-time Athletic Trainer on staff at JPII, as well as access to our team doctor, Dr. John Greco, MD. The certified athletic trainer works daily with our student-athletes to diagnose injuries, administer proper care, refer to a doctor if needed and help with rehabilitation of injuries. In addition, our trainer teaches a Sports Medicine class at the school.
Student-athletes that suspect an injury has occurred should notify their coach immediately so the coach can contact the trainer. The trainer can diagnose and refer any major issues to a TOC Doctor who is more familiar with sports injuries than a family doctor might be. This can allow for faster appointments, less wait time and a return-to-play time that is much faster than norma.
