Biography
Erek Cook attended the University of Southern Maine for a bachelors in Athletic Training/Sports Medicine.  Nationally certified to practice Athletic Training since 2013, he has also been licensed at the state level every step of the way to practice and provide AT services.  Erek spent two years working for Div. II Davis & Elkins College while completing a masters degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College in Sports Medicine and two years working alongside the physicians of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Orthopaedic team, everything from traumatic fracture surgery to hip/knee replacements, and casting/splinting. 
 
"Athletic Trainers are knowledgeable and trained in orthopedic/environmental injury evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, nutrition, sports psychology, strength and conditioning, manual therapy (massage), and concussion management. Yes, we do all that stuff but are still just a small part of the "sports medicine team" which is the athlete, coach, athletic trainer, school nurse, primary care physician/team physician, strength and conditioning coach, and the parent." - Erek Cook
