A focus on concussions

ACMC's Sports Medicine team takes concussions seriously. They work with high school athletes to minimize injury, but they also take preventative steps to show an athlete where they are at-risk. It begins with developing a baseline of current mental status through a serious of tests design to show how a student thinks currently. If an athlete suffers a concussion, further testing can show any deterioration in mental acuity and can show recovery from concussive-injury. Each patient gets a personalized treatment care plan. ACMC's Sports Medicine also works with local schools to ensure patients are following all school sports guidelines prior to returning to the field.
