The Return to Learn/Return to Play Model of Care at Sheltering Arms is a coordinated program to help student athletes safely return to both the classroom and playing field following concussion.
This model consists of an integrated two-hour evaluation by a physical therapist and medical psychologist to address the physical and neurocognitive effects of concussion. Physical therapy focuses on dizziness, balance impairments and headaches to help the athlete return to play, while medical psychology assesses neurocognitive impairments and works with the school to recommend and communicate appropriate accommodations to teachers, school nurses and counselors.
These clinical professionals work together to ensure thorough and efficient evaluation and treatment, with the goal of minimizing the student's time away from regular daily activities.
