Group Health and TriHealth Sports Medicine have teamed up to create Heads Count, the most comprehensive sports concussion program in the Cincinnati area. Their mission is to:
- Help prevent concussions through education
- Treat concussions with the best individualized care possible
Our experts can consult with a team physician to establish safe return-to-play assessments and to help schools or school districts in writing formal concussion policies. School athletic directors and coaches may arrange testing on site.
Our roster of pros includes physiatrists and athletic trainers who educate athletes about how to reduce their risk for injuries.
A concussion is caused by any forceful bump, blow or jolt to the head or body that results in rapid movement of the head. It is a serious injury that can cause a range of short- or long-term changes.
