Being an injured tactical athlete (or caring for them as a physician or physical therapist) can be a challenge in the military health care system. Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors and Marines are rarely in one place or under one provider’s care long enough to complete an entire post-operative or injury rehabilitation protocol. If a tactical athlete is lucky enough to remain in the same location after surgery they are constantly being pulled in multiple directions for tasking and training. Military therapists must rely heavily on civilian and NCO staff and are often left to hope for patient compliance with a home exercise program. The consistency between the clinic’s equipment and on or off post gyms is spotty at best, add in a post-op protocol full of unknown abbreviations and mismatched exercise handouts that don’t resemble anything a tactical athlete does in physical training, and the Service member is often left confused. This lack of consistency contributes to a difficult situation for the patient, the provider, the unit and readiness.
