|Subject: ||RE: Demise of the Collegiate Athletic Trainer|
ATC's provide a wide array of medical services to all you whiny runners and we refer to specialists when appropriate. Next time you come in saying your mom (webmd) wants you to get custom orthotics to alleviate plantar fasciitis (pre-existing)and the school should have to pay for them please ask her how much revenue your sport brings in for the aforementioned university? ATC's are only available to runners because they're on break from football, basketball, hockey, or baseball practice. Without the sports that actually bring money in, there would never be any leftover to fund, staff, and treat the welfare sports. Quit being bitter because you still haven't been granted that D2 scholarship yet. Oh, almost forgot...go talk to your coach about that scholarship money...see how much s/he gets paid to work 5 hour days and travel 12 hours to an unscored meet 800 miles away. If you received poor treatment from an atc before, I'm sorry for that but you will not get any better medical attention from a coach, webmd, "team mom", or the guy in the dorm room next to you.
