Dana received her Bachelors in Athletic Training from Azusa Pacific University and was also certified through the National Athletic Training Association Board of Certification in May 2015. Early after, she was certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Corrective Exercise Specialist. She then went on to receive her Masters in Rehabilitative Science from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in December 2016.
Dana will be going into her third year this fall as the head athletic trainer here at Life Pacific College, and has aided in the foundation and growth of the athletic training facility now established. She specializes in the use of multiple manual therapies, and the application of movement analysis with corrective exercise rehabilitation to enhance healthy athletic performance.
Games will be hosted in the Hicks Student Center (Building H). The entrance is located on the southeast corner of the building, and the athletic training room is located just through the entrance on the right-hand side.
A certified athletic trainer is present at every home game. The athletic training room will be opened two and half hours prior to every game and will remain open up to one hour after the game as needed.
Be sure to provide the team’s own taping supplies and a list of the required taping/wrapping techniques and treatment for each athlete. Athletes will have access to moist hot packs and can utilize electrical stimulation and ultrasounds treatments by written request with parameters from their own athletic trainer.
Supplies that will be provided at the bench during each game include:
Water cups or bottles
First aid kit
**Further assistance in first aid can be provided by the certified athletic trainer if desired
Life Pacific College coaching staff is trained in CPR and First Aid and is able to assist the certified athletic trainer if an emergency situation arises for either team if the visiting coaching staff is unable to do so. The athletic training room is equipped with spine board, vacuum splints, SAM splints, and an AED, which will be easily accessible at every home game.
Ice bags and wrap will be provided for the visiting athletes as needed. If any injuries occur during the game, the athletic trainer will document and forward the information to the team’s athletic trainer via email.
