MOI views Athletic Training as an integral part of the services we offer to our patients and our community. From the elite college running back, to the developing high school pitcher, to the recreational runner, we encourage every athlete to be responsible for his or her own health and conditioning.
Every encounter between an athlete and an MOI physician or staff member provides an opportunity for improving performance, preventing injury, and enhancing the benefits of athletic activity. We employ certified athletic trainers (ATCs) who work both as physician extenders in MOI’s offices and in an outreach capacity with students, clubs, and teams.
The National Athletic Trainer’s Association states that the practice of Athletic Training “encompasses the prevention, examination and diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, subacute, and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions and certain medical conditions in order to minimize subsequent impairments, functional limitations, disability, and societal limitations.” This means that Athletic Training can benefit even those patients who may not consider themselves to be athletes, including those challenged by physical disabilities, work-related injuries, or other medical conditions.
Student-athletes from Northern Illinois University, Kishwaukee College, DeKalb High School, Sycamore High School, and Genoa-Kingston High School depend on MOI for the finest Athletic Training Services available. So can you, rely on MOI!
