complete concussion care

What Are We Offering?

Complete Concussion CarePanno Medical Inc. is now offering a new Complete Concussion Care Program for athletes who compete in contact, limited contact and non-contact sports at the high school level. Concussion prevention, awareness and treatment is a big part of all sports programming today. It has been reported that ten percent of athletes who compete in contact sports will receive a concussion within a playing season. We expect this number to go up as more and more people become familiar with mechanisms of injury and the common signs and symptoms of concussions.

How it works!

The Complete Concussion Care Program begins with a pre-season educational seminar about concussions along with easy-to-read information brochures for athletes, coaches and parents. Included in this seminar are a pre-season medical history questionnaire and a baseline neurocognitive test for each athlete.

What Happens Next?

If an athlete is suspected of sustaining a concussion during competitive play, a Panno Medical Inc. employee will follow the athlete from post injury evaluation, through the Six Step Return to Play protocol. We will ensure the athlete is seen by a qualified concussion specialist physician who can then determine the proper treatment plan to safely return the athlete to competition. In keeping with the doctor’s approval, Panno Medical Inc. then works with the athlete to ensure a progressive treatment regime following the Six Step Return to Play Protocol to allow the athlete to return to play safely. If you are serious about concussion care of student athletes consider Panno Medical Inc.
