Sports Medicine Services We Offer:

 

Concussions

Here at EORH and OVMC we offer a comprehensive treatment approach to concussions. From prevention and evaluation to treatment and return to play you are covered. It is our duty as health care professionals to not only treat concussions, but to prevent and educate athletes, parents, and coaches alike.

 

Patients

No longer should a concussion be treated with sitting in a dark room until the patient feels better. Times and evidenced based medicine have changed, and so have we. Our treatments are tailored for each individual patient to provide optimal healing and recovery, less stress on the patient and faster return to play/work. No two concussions are alike, so why should the treatment be?

 

 

Our concussion management services start with f ree baseline testing for all athletes of the Ohio Valley regardless of sport. We then offer comprehensive plan of cares for concussions including evaluation, monitoring, treatment of the concussion and associated symptoms of the musculoskeletal system including the neck and finally return to play. Here at EORH and OVMC we have chosen to use the gold standard in Neurocognitive testing by using the ImPACT test developed in Pittsburgh, PA. ImPACT testing is widely used among sports teams across the world from HS sports to professional leagues such as the NHL and NFL. Professional athletes are not allowed to start practice or games for the season until Neurocognitive baseline testing is completed and the athlete in your family shouldn’t either.
