ATI Physical Therapy to Provide Athletic Training Services for Park University in Gilbert, Ariz.
ATI Physical Therapy and Park University are proud to team up and recognize ATI Physical Therapy as its official sports medicine provider. Under the agreement, ATI, a leading physical therapy and sports medicine provider in the country, will provide Park University with athletic trainers and sports medicine services to further strengthen Park University’s sport programs at the Gilbert campus.
ATI's athletic trainers are certified and licensed healthcare professionals who understand the complexities of high-level rehabilitation and are experts in preventing, evaluating, diagnosing, treating and rehabilitating injuries. Full-time athletic trainers will cover practices and home games for all sports. Services provided include injury education and prevention programs, conditioning program development, emergency medical care, rehabilitation, therapeutic massage and nutrition programs.
Overseeing the program at Park University will be ATI’s Kristin Shaefer, ATC. Shaefer graduated from Aurora University in 2014 with a Bachelor degree in Athletic Training. She began her career working with the Chicago Public Schools’ football programs and a competitive cheerleading club. Shaefer also spent four years covering all athletics at Plainfield North High School, providing the highest quality of care to the student athletes.
“We are excited to be working closely with partners like Park University and their Athletic Training Department, who see the tremendous value in keeping their student athletes healthy and safe,” said Greg Keuter, Arizona Sports Medicine Supervisor at ATI. “The synergies between our organizations and the desire to take comprehensive care of the Park University student athletes is a great foundation for our partnership to build upon.”
“When Greg Keuter approached me about partnership, it felt right from the start, and Greg’s knowledge and professionalism have led the way through the entire process. We are excited to get to know Kristin, and we’re already impressed by her professional credentials. I’m excited to welcome her to our team!” said Steve Wilson, Director of Athletics at Park University.
