National Athletic Training Month: Are Schools Doing Enough?
The Inquirer
While watching our favorite sports teams, we are generally hoping for 2 things — a win for our team and no injuries. Injuries have always been a part of sports and likely always will be. The difference between a championship season and missing the playoffs may be one-two injuries. Fortunately, professional and college teams almost always have an athletic trainer on site to care for that injury.

Month of March Recognizes the Work of Athletic Trainers
Times of Northwest Indiana
It was Kathy Levandoski's freshman year at Wisconsin-Whitewater when the three-sport athlete first became familiar with a training room. "I had a bad ankle sprain and I was in there every single day," she said. "I'd never seen one in my high school days at Valpo. We didn't have one." In a way, the injury served as a catalyst to Levandoski's career in the field, which dates to 1986, most of them at Valparaiso.

What once was viewed by some as brag-worthy or a badge of honor now is being taken seriously for its potential immediate and long-term effects. While progress has been made in how the seriousness of a concussion is perceived, it's still relatively unknown when it's acceptable for individuals to return to normal cognitive and physical activity.
