Mike Begg has over 25 years of experience in sports-related injuries. Initially, he worked as a certified athletic trainer for NAIA, NCAA and Professional Athletic teams and then as a certified physician assistant in orthopedics and Orthopedic surgery. While obtaining his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in athletic training/sports medicine, he was able to gain practical experience working with injured athletes. Mike followed up these experiences by teaming with a physical therapist in an outpatient physical therapy clinic treating multiple non-operative and post-operative patients.
Experience gained working “on the field” with multiple athletic teams, as well as working in the clinical rehabilitation setting, formed the solid foundation of Mike’s understanding of athletic injuries and how to get these athletes back into action. These experiences were fulfilling, but left him with a desire to know more about “the rest of the story.” Mike went on to complete Physician Assistant training and now works with physicians in an Orthopedic/Sports Medicine practice in Durango, Colorado. Experience gained on the playing field, in the operating room and in the clinical setting working side by side with various orthopedic surgeons helped solidify his understanding of what it means to treat the “Injured Athlete”.
