Assessing Skills, Protecting Athletes
If an athlete gets a concussion during the season, ChildServe specialists use the information gathered during the concussion baseline screening to compare an athlete’s pre-injury abilities to their post-injury abilities and determine how severe the injury is and what impairments are present. Therapists in ChildServe‘s concussion program can then partner with the athlete, coaches, and family to identify a safe return-to-play progression that will lessen the risk of a second concussion, serious brain injury, and other long-term health effects.
