Steve Hughes has been with Glenwood Orthopedic Center since our doors opened in 2014, and 14 years in total with the providers at GOC. However, this only takes up about half of Steve’s experience as an Athletic Trainer. Steve has been certified as an Athletic Trainer for 33 years. He has worked as a high school Athletic Trainer in his hometown of Springfield, VT and in a Physical and Occupational Therapy office north of Denver. Prior to this, he spent 4 years in the military as an orthopedic technician in both Germany and Fort Knox, KY.
Steve’s extensive experience and diverse training allow him to bring a unique viewpoint to GOC. He is a mentor to his colleagues in casting and splinting techniques as well as in the outdoor adventure sport world. Steve is passionate about this valley and the skiing, biking, and hiking that it provides. Because of his love for these sports, Steve is all too familiar with what it is like to be an orthopedic patient. Steve has suffered injuries from his shoulders to his knees, but he hasn’t let injuries keep him out of the game. Steve plays an integral role in making sure our patients at Glenwood Orthopedic Center are able to get back to the activities they love as well.
