Abstract

Based on an eight month internship period at the University of New Brunswick, the following information has been gathered which pertains to the authors experiences. Section one describes the role of the athletic therapist, the work environment as well as treatment options available at their disposal. Section two continues by briefly describing the injury profile of three sports; ice hockey, rugby, and volleyball, which the author has had ample field experience. It further describes common injuries which continuously presented themselves among the athlete population in the clinical environment. It is by no means a literature review, as it focuses only on practical experience gained by the author.
