Youth Sports Medicine Programs
Memorial Health System Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine makes youth sports medicine programs available to area schools. Our Athletic Trainer treats sports-related injuries and provides preventative education for safe participation in competitive sports, fitness, or recreational activities. For the safety and well-being of youth, our athletic trainer is also readily available at local school youth sporting events to assist athletes.
MHS Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine recognizes the dangers of concussions in sports, particularly for young athletes whose brains can suffer long-term consequences from concussions if not treated properly. That’s why we offer concussion management services. We provide baseline screenings for student athletes prior to the beginning of the season to use as comparative data in case the athlete has a concussion. Objective data helps the athlete’s physician make an informed return-to-play decision.
Baseline screenings for concussions are offered onsite free of charge to students served by youth sports medicine programs. For more information about youth sports medicine programs, contact MHS Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine at (785) 263-6664.
