I attend practices and bouts in order to provide on-site injury prevention and care.  This includes activities such as stretching, taping, evaluation of- and immediate response to injuries.  I also provide follow-up care and expert advice to help guide athletes through the entire process of their injuries.  This allows them to return to play quickly and safely following injury.  In addition, I help work with the organization to develop policies, procedures and programs for injury prevention and management.
