This year, I have the opportunity to enhance my skills as an athletic training student at Christian Brothers College (CBC) High School. At CBC, I am currently covering football, soccer, and cross-country. My preceptor, Kristin Jeans ATC, LMT, who works at CBC through Mercy Sports Medicine, has made the opportunity a remarkable experience.
Moreover, at CBC I am able to enhance my knowledge and capabilities of manual therapy. As a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), Kristin has been able to demonstrate various massage techniques for muscular related release for the body. The techniques used have been beneficial for pre- and post-treatments. As a strong believer of manual therapy, I have learned tremendous massage therapy skills that I will consistently utilize.
Overall, Christian Brothers College High School has been a great site. I am continually excited about the skills I will learn throughout the year.
This is one of a series of posts by the Saint Louis University Athletic Training students featuring their clinical site and their preceptors. The number, quality and diversity of clinical instruction are major assets for the SLU AT Program.
