Athletic Training

Welcome!

The American Academy of Family Physicians, American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Athletic Trainers Association recommend that high school athletes nationwide have daily access to appropriate medical care. Score Physical Therapy is proud to answer this call at local schools in our communities. In cooperation with team physicians, our certified athletic trainers (ATs) are on-site daily to provide care to over 800 athletes at the following high schools:

  • San Lorenzo Valley High School
  • Aptos High School

Athletic Trainers are health care professionals, with university degrees and national certification, who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses. In addition to providing medical services for sports practices and games, ATs also manage acute and chronic injuries, and coordinate additional care with local physicians and our physical therapy offices. Along with our high school services, the Score Physical Therapy Athletic Training Program assists with local club sports teams and other athletic events within the community.
