SPORTS INJURY RECOVERY
Your Brain is Also Subject to Injury
Concussions and brain injuries are additional sports injuries that athletes can face while pursuing their love for the game. It is arguably even more important for these types of injuries to be fully healed before the athlete returns to play as doing so helps prevent permanent brain issues. Mark Halstrom, M.D. has brought the ImPACT concussion program and his advanced pre- and post-concussion training to central Minnesota.
ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is a computerized assessment tool that measures verbal and visual memory, processing speed, and reaction time. It is the gold standard among many professional sports leagues (used by the NFL and MLB) as well as college, and high school athletic associations when determining a safe return to play.
We get athletes back in action while putting safety first!
Never Play Hurt Again
We understand you want to get back to your game as soon as possible. Helping you return to the court, course, field, or gym is part of our sports injury recovery plan. It’s our duty to help you decide what your body is ready for and what level of risk is acceptable.
Quite often an injury will feel better before it is fully healed. This causes athletes of all levels and abilities to return to action before their body is ready. Doing so jeopardizes your future growth and ability to remain active throughout your life. We want you playing again, but not on a less than healed sports injury.
Our sports therapists are equipped with the skills and experience to know what’s just right for you and your body.
