Meet Your Children’s Hospital Colorado Certified Athletic Trainer

Children’s Hospital Colorado and Real Colorado Soccer formed a partnership to promote the health and wellness of the entire Real community. As a result, Children’s Colorado Sports Medicine Center now staffs a certified athletic trainer (AT) to provide injury management for Real Colorado players.

ATs are specially trained in Injury/Illness prevention, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate and emergency care, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses. ATs have a bachelors or masters degree from an accredited professional athletic training education program and must pass a comprehensive board certification test. ATs work under the direction of physicians, as prescribed by state licensure statutes, and to keep their certification they must meet ongoing continuing education requirements to keep this certification.

What does this mean for you as a member of Real?

  • Free injury assessments and recommendations for follow-up care
  • Injury management, education and prevention
  • Functional rehabilitation

 

Meet Gregg Brueck, MS, ATC

Clinical interests: Hip pathologies, functional training for return to sports

Describe your responsibilities as the certified athletic trainer taking care of Real Colorado Soccer Club. Working with a club that has over 4,000 members, a big part of my responsibility is communicating with the members and coaches, providing education on injury prevention, rehabilitation, wellness and other health related issues.

How did you get your start in the athletic training field? I first began to think about the athletic training profession as a high school athlete. I sustained an injury and missed a good portion of the season. I was aware of the athletic training field and began to research. I knew being able to have a career working with injured athletes was what I wanted to pursue.

What do you like most about caring for athletes? I enjoy being there for the athletes in the event of an injury and helping them in a difficult time. Another aspect about caring for the injured athlete is helping them return to their sport. Working with them through the injury progression and see them compete after an injury is rewarding to me. I always want to make a difference for those athletes.

What is the most frequent injury you see in soccer? The most frequent injuries I see in soccer are ankle and knee injuries.
