Caldwell Academy’s sports medicine program provides quality sports preventative and injury care for its students. This encompasses evaluation and diagnosis, injury prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, acute care, and athlete education. Our athletic trainer works closely with area physicians and team doctors to provide immediate and sustained care for students while also striving to establish trusting relationships with the athletes, coaching staff, parents, and the medical community.
Cari Colòn is Caldwell’s athletic trainer and is contracted through EmergeOrtho
. EmergeOrtho's Dr. James Rogers
serves as our team physician. Appointments can be made with easy access and the highest quality of care is given in a timely manner. EmergeOrtho also offers urgent care walk-in services at their locations.
The athletic trainer provides evaluations to determine a safe participation status, preventative bracing and taping, and rehabilitative/reconditioning therapy to any athlete with an injury. Athletes who are unable to participate in practice or contests are monitored while they complete their rehabilitation program. Athletic trainers work with the athlete's treating physician to carry out any rehabilitative therapy prescribed and are prepared to deal with those injuries that occur throughout each practice or contest.
