For athletes and weekend warriors out there, sports participation potentially poses a risk for concussions. With new protocols in place, the diagnosing, handling, and treatment of concussions have changed. With new research, comes better change to help patients.
At Beyond Sports, we are trained in concussion management and cognitive baseline testing. We utilize a number of objective cognitive tests to evaluate athletes. Clinical management should go beyond just a “wait and see” approach and should NEVER involve leaving the decision to the athlete or how they FEEL.
