SLU AT Student Gets Hands-on Learning Experience at Roswell NeuroSport Physical Therapy

SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - NeuroSport Physical Therapy, Roswell, GA
By: Carmen Roberson (MAT Class of 2020)

This summer I am doing my clinical rotation at the Roswell NeuroSport Physical Therapy clinic in Georgia. So far, it has been such a great experience that I always look forward to throughout the week. My preceptor at the clinic, Chris Ross is a certified Athletic Trainer and Physical Therapist, and I have learned so much from his expertise. Being in this setting has given me the opportunity to work with patients one-on-one each hour and increase my knowledge on the use of a variety of different modalities, manual and myofascial techniques, and joint mobilizations.

Overall the experience I have had thus far has been beneficial to my growth as an AT student and has given me a great idea on the patient population that I would like to work with when I have completed my program. I look forward to learning more as my last couple weeks wrap up and I am excited for the future.

Students in the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Program have an immersive field experience in the summer between their two professional years in the program. This blog post details a student's reflection on their experience.
