#EncoreSportsMedicine Athletic Trainer Carla Ikert with #EncoreRehab  Eufaula

Say hello to Encore Sports Medicine Athletic Trainer Carla Ikert! We are proud to have her with us at Encore Rehabilitation-Eufaula!

Carla received her B.A. in Athletic Training from Carthage College and her M.S. in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Biomechanics from Southeastern University. She has been an Athletic Trainer for four years. She is also an IASTM Certified Practitioner.

Carla shares, “My journey to become an Athletic Trainer started when I was in high school and was injured myself my freshman year.  I began working with my high school athletic trainer to overcome my injury. After that, I started going to athletic training summer camps at universities when I was in high school to help prepare me for becoming an athletic training student in college.  My favorite part of being an Athletic Trainer is the relationships I develop with my student athletes. We become like family. I love assisting them through their injury recovery and then seeing how happy they are when they can return to playing sports!”

Carla’s personal interests include spending time outdoors and with her dogs. She loves coffee and enjoys experimenting with different flavors and ways to make coffee.

Thank you for all you do, Carla! Welcome to Encore Rehabilitation-Eufaula!
