HI my name is Sara, and i'm the team physician. I'm responsible for diagnosing you and telling you the treatment you need. After my assessment I discovered you have torn your Achilles. Stay put and I will bring in the athletic trainer.
Hey kid, so I heard about your injury and the sports med team is doing their absolute best to get you all back in shape for practices and games.
Hello, my name is Dale and I am the athletic trainer. I'm responsible for the management, treatment, and prevention for your injury. I work under the supervision of the team physician. In this case you won't need surgery but you will need to ice it an do certain exercises till you're healed 100%.
Okay thanks doc, will do.
Full recovery could take up to 4-6 months.
Hi I'm Ted your physical therapist and I'm in charge of your rehabilitation and luckily like the trainer said the injury was serious but not enough for surgery. You will have quite a bit of loss of practice time.
About how long will I be out for doctor?
Yeah, they said I would be out for a little while and right now I'm about to go see the sports massage therapist.
Hi I'm Alexis, your massage therapist and my job specializes in massage treatments for athletes. Looking at your ankle I think we could loosen the muscles in your achilles and improve the blood flow.
aw that sounds really good, thank you and do all the sports medicine team!
