Concussion Management Program
for Student Athletes
If your child suffers a head injury playing sports, you
want to make sure he or she is safe before returning to
play. St. John Medical Center now offers studentathletes
the opportunity to establish a balance function
baseline with a $20 test. Taking this step before injury
creates an invaluable reference point for measuring
injury impact, results in a faster and more successful
rehabilitation, and provides objective information to
help clinicians make safe return-to play decisions.
Call 440-414-6050 for more information.
