Welcome to the Salem International University New Athletic Training Room Website. We are excited about our new program and facilities here at SIU. We recently moved the athletic training room from the second floor in the gym to the first floor of the T. Edward Davis Building. The new athletic training room is equipped with three new offices, a hydro room, new treatment and taping tables, and a generous space for rehabilitation, which includes the CYBEX TRAZER.
The HydroWorx 2000 Series (seen above) is a radically functional aquatic therapy
pool. It boasts a host of high-performance features which represent the
cooperative efforts of visionaries, engineers, and clinicians. The
moveable floor, 8'x12' underwater treadmill, resistance jet technology,
and computer and camera systems satisfy the varied demands of
traditional physical rehabilitation, as well as those of dominant,
It is our mission to keep our student-athletes
safe and injury free through injury prevention methods such as stretching,
hydration, and strengthening the smaller joint stabilizing muscles.When injury does occur, our ATCs have various
modalities from paraffin, cryotherapy, aquatic therapy, neuromuscular stim, and
ultrasound to treat the minor to severe injuries that come with competing on
the collegiate level.Rehabilitation
begins in the Athletic Training Room with balance exercises, gait training,
tubing exercises and modality treatments and then moves into the new Fitness
Center for the final fine tuning before returning to competition.
