The active population requires a specialized Sports Medicine program of physicians, physical therapists and certified athletic trainers (ATCs) dedicated to preventing injuries, improving performance and achieving personal physical goals. The goal of an athletic trainer is to prevent injuries, provide timely access to care and manage day to day sports injuries to help keep athletes participating in their sport.
McLeod Sports Medicine has 40 Certified Athletic Trainers (ATC) on staff who provide medical care to athletes in 29 schools in Florence, Darlington, Marion, Horry, Dillon, Clarendon, Lee, Marlboro, and Chesterfield Counties. They also provide athletic training services to the Florence Red Wolves, Francis Marion University and Florence-Darlington Technical College.
Athletes in these programs directly benefit from timely access to care from McLeod Health through its hospitals, physicians, outpatient centers and health and fitness centers. McLeod Athletic Trainers are also a source of information to the communities they serve by providing resources and education to athletes, parents, coaches, administrators and community members.
