MD Paperwork: PLATINUM RULE: ANY ATHLETE THAT SEES ANY MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL FOR ANY
REASON (ILLNESS OR INJURY ETC,) MUST HAVE A NOTE FROM THE MEDICAL PERSONNEL BEFORE BEING
ABLE TO RESUME PARTICIPATION- NO EXCEPTIONS. *With Diagnosis and any restrictions**
■ EACH AND EVERY TIME- MUST include medical information on it (not an attendance note!)
Diagnosis & what they can and cannot do (treatment time/ end date)
*Come and see the Athletic Trainers prior to going to the MD
■ We can tell you if it is a significant injury from our evaluations & can initiate the rehab process
(save money & time on MD visit!)
■ We can help you get into the correct physician in a timely manner- including Saturday Clinic at
Willowbrook Methodist during football season WE’RE ABLE TO SCHEDULE MD APPTS @ METHODIST!
■ We will fill out the proper paperwork for your visit (MD Referral & School insurance form if
appropriate)
■ We will properly document & communicate with the coaches and any other school personnel

AM morning Treatments every school day @ 6:45- 7:15
■ All injured or sick athletes must sign into the training room each school morning at 6:45 am for
treatment, evaluation and turn in any MD notes (so we can communicate effectively)
■ No athlete will be treated during a class period other than their athletic period and only during
their athletic period if they attended AM treatments
■ No athlete will get taped without first completing their rehab exercises during morning treatment
■ Athlete should wear rigid ankle braces in lieu of taping
■ Tape is a short term fix while muscle strengthening is a long term cure!

Concussion Paperwork- Reporting…It’s the Law. WE HAVE TONS OF PAPERWORK FOR THIS!!!
■ Must be removed from play immediately and evaluated by a MD skilled in Concussion
Management (documented). Must go through the return to play protocol prior to any activity
which is part of the LAW… Lots of paperwork that require Parent/Guardian signature
■ Contact the Staff AT- ASAP; we will handle it and the reporting ☺
