Concussion Management

Central Indiana Orthopedics provides concussion management to student athletes, ages 13 years and older, enrolled in schools covered by our athletic training outreach program. These student athletes seeking treatment for concussion management should request an appointment for an evaluation or call the Concussion Hotline at 765-213-3883. All other student athletes must consult with their school’s athletic trainer/team physician to treat sports-related concussions.

Concussions are an elusive neurological disorder that are difficult to detect. Common tests, such as a neurological examination, EEG, CT or MRI of the brain often miss detecting a concussion. Sophisticated computerized testing specifically designed for detecting the effects of sports concussion is considered the most sensitive and reliable testing to diagnose concussion and determining when an athlete has recovered from the concussion and can return to play.
