High School Athlete Concussion Clinic
A High School Athlete Concussion Clinic, a collaborative effort of the Achieve Center, the Bone and Joint Clinic, and Sport and Spine was begun in August 2008. Individual baseline neurological functioning profiles are obtained through the use of the ImPact assessment protocol of all high school athletes in the greater Wausau area. With the individual profile established, when a high school athlete has a concussion, their post concussion functioning can be compared against their pre-concussion functioning. This comparison in addition to the overt symptoms of concussion can provide the physician and neuropsychologist a picture of the severity of the concussion from which to base treatment and return to play recommendations.
