  • STHS Sports Medicine has a comprehensive concussion evaluation and Return to Play protocol that is established to help athletes, coaches and parents know when their student-athlete has a concussion and how to help prevent further brain trauma.  STHS Sports Medicine uses the Standardized Concussion Assessement Test (SCAT3) and ImPact computer test to compare an injured athlete to their baseline tests.  CA state law AB2127 requires that any athlete diagnosed with a concussion be cleared by a physician trained in the treatment of concussions and follow a 7 day graduated return to play protocol once they are symptom free.
