DHS ATHLETIC TRAINING AND SPORTS MEDICINE


If you (or your child) is concerned about an injury that they sustained during participation in DHS athletics, contact the high school athletic trainer.


Athletic trainers are health care professionals who specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of sport-related injuries/illnesses.


In partnership with Upland Hills Health, Dodgeville High School has contracted athletic training coverage as a health and safety service for all student athletes. For most home events, on-site coverage is provided. Services include acute injury evaluation and first-aid or emergency care if needed. Athletic training services are also provided weekly during after school and practice times including injury assessment, rehabilitation and follow up care. In communication with coaches and associated healthcare providers, the licensed athletic trainer assists with the appropriate management of your injury and serves as a guide for safe return to participation. 


In some circumstances, access to the athletic trainer is not always available. You may also feel more comfortable consulting with your primary care provider. During these situations it is also recommended that you follow up with the high school athletic trainer. They will help insure all medical recommendation are followed.
