June 3, 2013- DMC Sports Medicine Physicians Find Differences in Concussion Management and Awareness Among High School Sports
DMC Sports Medicine physicians were recently published in Sports Health, a publication of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, for their research on inconsistencies in concussion prevention education offered to high school athletes.

DMC Sports Medicine physicians Dr. Sadiq Haque, Dr. Stephen Lemos, along with research associates Amanda Esquivel, Patrick Keating and Stephanie Marsh, have concluded there is a difference in preventative concussion management and awareness among high school sports, with a specific look at boys football, boys ice hockey, and boys and girls soccer. After conducting a research study with high school athletic directors, head coaches, team physicians and certified athletic trainers, they found concussion education of football players and use of sideline screening tools were significantly greater than all other high school athletes.

In addition to prevention education, DMC Sports Medicine found trends in procedures after a player has a concussion, including the restriction of returning to the game and referrals to a physician. Also consistent was the idea that young athletes are under consistent health care supervision after an injury, but what’s more important in the increase needed in comprehensive, preventive health care specific to all athletes.
