As the calendar turns to August, many families start thinking back-to-school and how much busier their nights and weekends will get once extracurricular activities kick off. Middle school and high school athletics are a way of life for many families in our area. With this comes the risk of injury from playing sports. Student athletes are lucky to have a teammate who not only looks out for them but helps treat injuries that do happen. Even though they don't play the game, athletic trainers are an integral part of the team.
Midwest Nest loves the culture from the upper midwest, and we are excited to share stories from around the area.
