  • Ouch! My ankle is in a lot of pain.
  • 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?
  • the coach-
  • 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!
