When it comes to athletic training, the focus is always on striving for one step closer to perfection. Athletes are driven by the desire to shave half a second off their last running time, achieve five extra reps per set, and becoming more accurate with each throw. With this constant forward momentum, it's no surprise that almost no one on the field or in the gym is considering the possibilities of serious injury. Sure, everyone tries to maintain good form to avoid a strain, but a life changing accident is the last thing anyone wants to think about. However, every team and facility has at least one concerned individual who is ready for anything, and we call them first responders. These brave men and women are always ready to lend a hand and are usually excellently equipped with a medical bag prepared for almost anything.
