Manhattan College Sports Medicine Department
John "Doc" Johnson Athletic Training Center

Sports medicine is an integral part of every collegiate athletics program. Manhattan College employs six certified athletic trainers who work tirelessly to assist student-athletes. While Manhattan's athletic trainers are essential in the treatment of injuries, even greater value comes from their ability to prevent injuries and ensure that Jasper student-athletes are competing in a safe and healthy environment. In addition to preventing and treating injuries, athletic trainers provide injury rehabilitation, nutritional supervision, strength and conditioning, drug and alcohol education, and general personal health advisement.

Manhattan's sports medicine staff is aided by a wide range of equipment for the prevention of injuries and the rehabilitation and conditioning of student-athletes.

The sports medicine staff is supported by a network of highly qualified medical and counseling professionals practicing in the metropolitan area.

The Manhattan College Sports Medicine Department features four taping stations, four treatment tables, three combo/ultrasound stim units, two stationary bikes, two whirlpools, one Jobst Extremity Pump, one upper cycle UBE, one hydrocollator unit, one ice machine, one weighted pulley station, one rebounder, one variable percussor, one cold channel laser, and various sized medicine balls.
