All injuries should be reported to the staff athletic trainer responsible for your sports as soon as they happen. If you cannot report the injury immediately, be sure to see your staff athletic trainer as soon as possible (at least by 10:30 a.m. the next day). If you are unable to come to the athletic training room, you may call the staff athletic trainer. S/he will evaluate the injury and refer you to the appropriate medical specialists if necessary.
A treatment plan will be developed that requires your presence in the athletic training room twice daily (once in the morning, and then at least one hour before practice). Be sure to keep your appointments in the training room. If you cannot make it, you must call to reschedule.
In order to provide effective treatment for our athletes, we have an insurance specialist on staff. Kelsey Brandt, who is located in the Eccles Football Facility, may be reached by phone at 587-9086.
If you receive any insurance or medical bills, please forward them immediately to Kelsey at the number listed above.
