Alpine PT’s star aide and certified athletic trainer Emily Jones posted this piece on her experience covering games at the Missoula Indoor Soccer Arena (MISA).
I provide my knowledge in sport specific on field evaluations of athletic injuries. The free injury consults that I provide keep the Missoula Indoor Soccer (MISA) athletes on their feet and playing competitively. I’ve enjoyed getting to know the friendly MISA staff and meeting some of the people that recreate there.
I’ve seen some friends playing that I went to high school with and have enjoyed watching them play. I have been able to evaluate ankle and knee injuries and helped with things as minimal as cut’s, bruises, and abrasions. I have also been able to use my skills with taping, including the ever-popular “Kinesio tape”.
I love being a representative of Alpine Physical Therapy by keeping people healthy, happy, and active.
