Students participate in many sports during their academic careers. Over this time, injuries may happen and require families to seek out the assistance of sports medicine professionals. The reality is that as the focus of sports has moved to year round, rather than seasonal, and the number of injuries has risen significantly. High school athletes alone account for approximately two million injuries each year. This means that school occupational therapists, physical therapists, and nurses will need to coordinate on assisting athletes in their rehabilitation process.
