Concussion Management

Concussions can have serious consequences and should not be ignored. Whether your symptoms show up immediately, or days later, you should be evaluated by professionals who specialize in concussion.

Premier Health has sports medicine physicians and athletic trainers who are credentialed with ImPACT®, a national concussion care program for high school, college and professional athletes. Learn more.

Sports Physicals

Before you can participate in a sport, you may need a thorough exam by a physician. These exams are intended to ensure you can safely participate.

At Premier Health, it is our sincere belief that your health interests are best served in a private, one-on-one physical examination with your regular caregiver, such as a pediatrician or primary care physician. Your physician knows your medical history and is best prepared to recognize reasons why participation should be avoided.
