Ask Baxter, a graduate of Northeastern University, about her duties as head physical therapist and she will quickly hit you with an, “Oh, my gosh,” and chase it with, “Everything,” before rattling off the list.
During a competition, you can find Baxter at the top of the halfpipe doing any number of things: Handing out snack bars. Diagnosing injuries on the spot. Assessing possible concussions. (She is also a certified emergency medical responder.) Coordinating athlete care with the team physician. Monitoring fatigue levels. Reminding athletes to hydrate. Giving doses of ibuprofen.
“There’s so much going on, and it’s total chaos,” she said.
