This specialized therapy is offered at the MHS Rehabilitation Services and Sports Medicine office and local schools for athletes.
It involves not only the treatment of sports-related injuries, but preventive education for safe participation in competitive sports, fitness, or recreational activities. The sports medicine program offers concussion management services, providing baseline screenings for student athletes prior to the beginning of the season to use as comparative data in case the athlete has a concussion.
Data is compared with the ImPACT test, performed post-concussion, so the physician may make an informed return-to-play decision.
