Sports Medicine

To ensure quality care for our athletes, Cleveland State will employ a certified Athletic Trainer. 

All athletic injuries must be evaluated and referred to our physicians or your physicians by our Athletic Trainer.

Please encourage your son or daughter to go through the proper channels when an injury occurs. The exception to this policy is when the team is traveling and a medical emergency occurs.

All Cleveland State Athletes must have a physical before they will be allowed to practice.  Physicals will be offered to all Cleveland State Athletes.  The Physicals will be administered by Benchmark Physical Therapy.  Your respective Coach will let you know the date and time that physicals will be given.  You are free to have a physical completed by your family physician.  If you choose to do so, complete the enclosed Medical History form and have the doctor complete the Physical Examination section and return to your Coach when you arrive on Campus.  You will be responsible for having a physical prior to the beginning of school.  You will not be able to participate in practices until you have a physical.                             

All injuries will initially be evaluated by our trainer, through Benchmark Physical Therapy. You have the option of having injuries evaluated by a physician you will be referred to by our trainer or your own physician.  If you have the injuries evaluated by your own physician, we will need to have a copy of the exam report, for insurance purposes, in your son’s/daughter’s file.
