Yesterday, I visited WAKR morning show host Ray Horner in studio to discuss President Obama’s announcement to commit $85 million for youth sports concussions. We also talked about Carlos Santana’s recent concussion and placement on the disabled list.
House Bill 59, which will be voted on in the coming weeks, will allow chiropractors to make the final decision on whether student athletes can return to play after being taken off the field for symptoms of a concussion.
Day in and day out, Dr. Joe Congeni helps young athletes who have suffered concussions. He evaluates and diagnoses the head injury, educates his patients and their parents about symptoms, long-term risks and follows up, and lays out a cautious return-to-play plan.
