Charlotte Athletic Trainers Charlotte Athletics Training Room

Welcome to Charlotte 49ers Sports Medicine. Out of the many facets of an Athletic Department, there are few programs more important than Sports Medicine. At Charlotte, our mission and commitment is to provide the highest quality health care while educating the student-athlete in good health practices and injury prevention.

All of our athletic training rooms here are Charlotte are staffed with BOC® Certified and North Carolina Licensed Athletic Trainers. Our staff includes four full time Certified Athletic Trainers supported by six Graduate Intern Athletic Trainers. This highly trained group of individuals provides injury recognition, acute injury care, emergency management, and injury rehabilitation while also providing education on injury prevention techniques.

At Charlotte, our Athletic Trainers develop relationships with student-athletes as individuals and have a comprehensive understanding of each athlete's medical backgrounds. Being fortunate enough to have a unique situation of one athletic trainer per team provides for an efficient and streamlined standard of care in the unfortunate event that an issue may occur. 

Head team physician and Director of Student Health Services, Dr. Robert Jones, along with the assistance from team orthopedists Dr. James Fleischli and Dr. Michael Dockery direct the healthcare of our athletic training staff. Other members of our sports medicine team include our team dentist, optometrist, chiropractor, registered dietitian, sports psychologist, physical therapist, and other healthcare specialists. All of these professionals are dedicated to providing the highest quality medical services to our 380+ student-athletes.

Alongside our Sports Medicine staff, the Student Health Center provides medical care to all students including our student-athletes. A great working relationship between the two departments has been developed as a result of hard work and understanding of the unique needs and requirements of student-athletes. Any non-emergency medical event can be referred to the Student Health Center for further evaluation, laboratory work, X-Rays, or pharmacy needs and is conveniently located directly on campus.

Game Ready

All medical care for a student-athlete begins with the athletic trainer. They have specific training and knowledge for each sport allowing them to work closely with team physicians, coaches, strength/conditioning staff, and student-athletes to design workouts that will improve their athletic ability. More importantly, athletic trainers are able to evaluate student-athletes to identify conditions that may predispose them to injury then prepare and execute a plan to remedy the condition. Athletic trainers are in a unique position to provide care as they have a solid relationship with student-athletes before they ever have a medical issue. Unfortunately, injuries are a part of athletics.  If an injury does occur, our athletic trainers are present at all team activities both home and away. They are able to see it happen, immediately provide acute care, formulate and execute a rehabilitation plan to quickly and safely return the student-athlete to competition.
