Concussion Management

Concussion Barron PatientApproximately 10 percent of all athletes involved in contact sports, such as football, hockey, and soccer suffer a brain injury or concussion each season. Although the majority of these athletes will recover quickly, others may experience physical, cognitive and neurobehavioral difficulties related to the injury.

Often times, it is difficult to determine when it is safe for an athlete to return to play. In the past, return-to-play decisions were made based on observation and player report of symptoms. However, it is now possible to determine return to play based on scientific guidelines using a neuropsychological assessment tool called ImPACTTM, in addition to neurological evaluation as necessary.

ImPACTTM evaluates an athlete's pre-concussive and post-concussive performance. This Web-based program is available to schools throughout the community. WellSpan Health is a credentialed ImPACTTM provider.
