    About This Provider

    Cole Thornton, LAT, ATC, PES, is an athletic trainer with Springfield Clinic. His favorite part about the job is getting to know and work with student athletes and coaches. Work has many rewards for me including helping athletes to prevent injuries to helping them get back into the game after an injury. Outside of work, Cole loves spending time with his beautiful wife and three kids. Besides spending time with family, Cole enjoys rooting for his favorite sports teams and playing sports (Go COWBOYS!).
