Concussion

We use the most current standards of concussion evaluation to assist in the diagnosis and return to learn/play protocols. Directed by the Head Athletic Therapist all athletes participating in a contact sport are provided with a baseline concussion test. Return to learn and return to play recommendations are governed by the Head Athletic Therapist in conjunction with the onsite physician or other physicians in the community. Return to learn strategies are implemented using a multidisciplinary approach under the direction of the Concussion Advisory Team per the SMUS concussion policy.
