BK athletes visit doctors at Empire State competition to stay in the game

BROOKLYN - While Brooklyn athletes competing in the Empire State Games in Rochester say their minds are willing, they turn to a medical staff to keep their bodies able.

A well-trained team of trainers and doctors routinely see players. They say an athlete?s sport determines the course of action, whether it?s taping an ankle or stretching. The medical staff is also concerned about dehydration in the intense heat.

Many players say as the games go on, their medical visits will become more frequent.
