Recreation Center members now have access to the University Recreation Sports Medicine program, which provides emergency and acute care on the field as well as injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. With state-of-the-art equipment to help you recover effectively from injury, additional services include electrical stimulation, ultrasound, stabilization exercises and techniques to enhance flexibility and range of motion.
If you are experiencing pain related to an injury, Ann Wittkopp, our Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC), can help. An ATC is an allied health care professional who specializes in the prevention, evaluation, treatment, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Ann is licensed in the state of Washington, is certified as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist and is a member of the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). She also works closely with the Student Health Center to ensure that the proper care is provided for each member, and if needed will refer you to another specialist.
