In recent years, there has been a surge in the importance of preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion, especially in young athletes. It is vital for athletes, coaches and parents alike to know what a concussion is and the steps to treating it.
Atlas’ Concussion Management Program follows the FHSAA approved guidelines and is designed with the athlete’s health and safety in mind. Our program involves neuropsychological assessment including baseline and post-concussion testing using the imPACT program, physical therapy (when appropriate) for subsequent injuries, and monitored appointments for all graded exercise protocol (GEP) phases. We work closely with the patient’s physician to determine the best plan of care for the individual and to also determine appropriate return to play (RTP) decisions regarding athletes.
What is ImPACT?
ImPACT or Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing is the most widely-used and scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system.
ImPACT-trained physicians are provided with state-of-the-art neurocognitive assessment tools and services, enabling more accurate decisions to safely return individuals to activity.
Because outward signs and symptoms of a concussion can vary depending on severity, precise concussion recognition is highly important, especially in young athletes.
