Well, I hope that this doesn't ruin you on all ATC's. I feel for you in this situation. It might be difficult to do , but I would keep banging the drum. Communication is the number one issue between ATC's and Coaches. Ask them what their plan is for each athlete. They should be able to at least give you an idea of what to expect. For instance, in the case of a moderate hamstring pull, I might say that the athlete will rest for 3 days and receive treatment ( massage, ice, e-stim, sound etc. ). After three days, we begin to stress the tissue with mild stretching etc. This should give the ATC another idea about the next phase of treatment and how many days / weeks it may take. Point being, you should see active treatments ( pool work, strengthening, range of motion etc ) after the initial phase of healing. If after a few weeks all that is being done is ice and e-stim without exercise, that is a problem in most cases. Make them describe to you at least a rough plan of treatment. Hope this helps.
