March is National Athletic Training Month. At Cumberland, we are fortunate to have Tanner Krumwiede as our Athletic Trainer. Tanner works for HSHS Athlete's Advantage Sports Medicine and has direct access to Orthopaedic Surgeons at HSHS St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham and St. Joseph's Hospital in Breese, Illinois.
As an Athletic Trainer, Tanner can provide many services in his work. Nata.org states, “Athletic trainers are healthcare professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide emergency care and prevent, diagnose and treat injuries and medical conditions for people in work, life and play including athletes, industrial workers, military service members and public servants.”
More information about athletic trainers and the health care services they provide are available at nata.org and/or atyourownrisk.org.
