Sports Medicine Outreach
KOC values community involvement and has a long tradition of supporting student athletes. In 2003, KOC formalized that commitment by investing in a program that provides area high schools with full-time athletic trainers. This Sports Medicine Outreach program allows coaches and students the benefit of having a certified athletic trainer available at the school, at practices, and on the sidelines of games. Through this partnership, KOC has become an integral part of the team and culture of each of the participating schools.
The athletic trainers in the schools work very closely with the physicians at KOC as well as the physical therapists at OrthoTennessee Therapy. With a rehabilitation facility located in the same building as the KOC physician offices, OrthoTennessee Therapy provides convenient, patient-friendly services for injured athletes. This convenience, paired with the established relationships and the collaborative effort among the student athlete, parents, athletic trainer, physician, therapist and coach, serves to help each athlete get back in the game as soon and as safely as possible.
