Concussion Care Protocol at Muskegon HS

Muskegon High School, in conjunction with Mercy Health Sports Medicine, has developed a unified approach to the care of student-athletes when a diagnosis of concussion has been made by a medical professional.  The components of the post-concussion program include:

*Removal from competition

*Observation for Signs of Neurologic Deterioration

*Physical Rest and Neurocognitive Rest

*Somatic Symptoms

*Return to Play Protocol

In the documents below, you can learn about the process our medical staff utilizes to strengthen our unified management of concussions to ensure a safe recovery for the student-athletes at Muskegon High School.
