Committed to providing efficient, optimal healthcare to every student athlete, maximizing their intercollegiate experience in accordance with standards of practice set forth by state and federal guidelines. We strive to create a culture encouraging personal and professional development while maintaining positive professional relationships within Miami University and the Oxford Community.
One of the top priorities for the Miami sports medicine staff is to ensure that all student-athletes attain the highest potential for safe and effective participation in their chosen sports. This includes prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries, utilizing the latest techniques and equipment.
The main goal of the training staff is to prevent an injury from occurring. This involves getting to know the athletes and determining what factors could predispose them to injury, then acting to improve the situation. This process could include anything from routine taping to strengthening exercises for a chronic problem.
Despite all precautions, injuries occur, and when they do, the qualifications of the Miami athletic training staff truly become apparent. Regardless of the severity of the injury, the athletic trainers are prepared to give immediate quality evaluations and treatments for the condition. When the athletes return to competition, they do so after completion of a personally designed rehabilitation program with the goal of getting the athlete back to pre-injury status as quickly as possible.
Benefiting from one of the finest training rooms in Division I athletics, Miami's athletes are cared for with muscle stimulators, ultrasound, whirlpools and other state-of the-art rehabilitation equipment. The resources do not end with the equipment, however; the staff of 10 certified athletic trainers and 30 Athletic Training students have established one of the best sports medicine programs in the country.
