SLU AT Student Appreciates the Opportunity to Build Rehabilitation Skills with Billiken Athletics

SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Saint Louis University Athletics 
By: Mary Margaret Cannatella (MAT Class of 2023)

This year I am at SLU with my preceptor and SLU alum Gwyn Brown MAT, ATC, the athletic trainer for Volleyball, Softball, and Track. With the start of volleyball season, I have gotten a lot of hands-on experience and although I have only been there for a short time Gwyn has already taught me so much and I have really enjoyed my time. With volleyball I have gotten great exposure with both upper and lower extremity. I have gotten the chance to work on my rehab skills and come up with different appropriate exercises for athletes and their injuries.
It has given me great experience with practicing sports specific rehabs in the later phases of recovery. I also have gotten to learn and use injury and load management and look forward to using this as the season progresses. I have gotten the chance to apply the skills I’ve learned in class and use them hands on. I look forward to the rest of the volleyball season and all I have to learn this semester with Gwyn.

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.
