Darlington’s sports medicine department, staffed by professionals from Atrium Health Floyd, serves the student-athletes of all Upper School athletic programs as well as visiting teams. The department prides itself in all six realms governed by the Role-Delineation Study of the National Athletic Training Association:
Recognition and evaluation of injuries
Management and treatment of injuries
Organization and administration
Education and counseling
Darlington’s athletic training staff works closely with many local physicians and escorts student-athletes to physician appointments when needed. This ensures that the lines of communication are clear and everyone agrees on the plan of care for the student-athlete. In addition, Atrium Health Floyd conveniently provides physical therapy on site at the school.
The following services are also available:
Hydrotherapy (Hot and Cold)
Iontophoresis (per doctor’s request)
An array of rehabilitation equipment
Swimming pool for aquatic rehabilitation
Individual appointments can be made to help a student-athlete regain a physical goal or return to play. Please contact head trainer Donny Brown at 770-546-1273 to schedule the appointment.
