Our athletic trainers support athletes at our high schools and the region’s two colleges, South Dakota School of Mines & Technology and Black Hills State University. Athletic trainers optimize participation in work and life – reducing injuries and rehabilitation time, which translates to lower absenteeism and greater contributions.
What People Are Saying
I was worried that a broken metatarsal was the end of my skiing career. Dr. Johnson’s surgery was the right thing to do and a great success. I had a full season this year.
It wasn’t a matter of if, but when, I would need both hips replaced. Dr. Miller looked me in the eye and said recovery’s in 2-4 weeks, probably closer to two. I said, Sign me up!
About four years ago I started having trouble with my knee — moderate osteoarthritis. Dr. Sole’s PRP therapy has made it a lot easier to walk and allowed me to travel extensively, which is great!
