In celebration of National Athletic Training Month, we’d like to introduce you to Encore Rehabilitation Director of Sports Medicine-South Mississippi Eric Oehms, MS, LAT, ATC!
Eric has been an Athletic Trainer for 22 years and has also been with Encore Rehabilitation for 22 years. He is the Director of Sports Medicine for Encore Rehabilitation-South Mississippi, working with a staff of 20 Athletic Trainers. He is most often providing Sports Medicine coverage for St. Patrick Catholic High School.
Eric says, “I wanted to be involved with athletics when my playing time was over. I also wanted to be involved in healthcare. Athletic Training is the best of both worlds! That is why I became an Athletic Trainer. Being around athletes who have a strong desire to do their best and to watch their coaches use various techniques to bring out the athletes’ best is one of the best things about being an Athletic Trainer. Being outside for part of my day and being paid to be at sporting events, what’s not to love about that!”
Thank you, Eric, for your long hours of hard work to keep our athletes healthy and safe! We appreciate all you do with Encore Rehabilitation Sports Medicine Team!
Encore Rehabilitation is proud to be the Official Sports Medicine Provider for
St. Patrick Catholic High School as well as numerous high schools and colleges
across Alabama and Mississippi. We LOVE to see you move!
