Riverview Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is committed to improving and preserving the health and well-being of athletes of all ages and their families. Riverview Health provides local schools and organizations sports-medicine coverage with licensed athletic trainers and team physicians. We’re proud to be a partner with these community organizations:

 

Riverview Health athletic trainers provide student-athletes with sports medicine coverage during both practices and games. Because trainers are often the first person to see an injured athlete, our trainers are experienced in triaging and treating injuries.

Services for student athletes include:

  • Instructions for stretching
  • Post-workout care
  • Injury prevention
  • Emergency treatment

 

ImPACT Assessments

Concussions not only take an athlete out of the game, but they can be dangerous. A concussion occurs when the brain is moved or jolted due to a blow to the head. This causes bruising to the brain, which can potentially damage nerves and blood vessels.

If you or your child is an athlete, we recommend receiving an ImPACT assessment. Riverview Health offers ImPACT assessments to provide a baseline for cognitive function for athletes prior to a concussion, or after recovery. This baseline is important when attempting to determine the amount of damage that is sustained if you suffer a head injury.

Athletic Cardiac Screening

Cardiac abnormalities are a risk many student athletes do not realize they face. Often symptomless, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (an abnormal thickening of the heart muscle) and prolonged QT syndrome (an irregularity in the heart’s electrical system) are two of the most common causes of sudden cardiac death in young athletes.

Riverview Health Heart & Vascular offers athletic cardiac screenings to student-athletes to help identify heart abnormalities. Screenings consist of an electrocardiogram (EKG) and an echocardiogram—both of which detect hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and prolonged QT syndrome.

The screening takes a total of 20 minutes and cost $30.

Athletic Performance Lab Profile

Fatigue from low iron isn’t what an athlete wants to be worrying about on game day. Iron is lost when we sweat, putting athletes at a higher risk for iron deficiency. Because we know the importance of being at your best when you compete, Riverview Health Laboratory Services designed an Athletic Performance Lab Profile with student-athletes in mind. These tests provide athletes with important information about their health and wellness so they can excel in all they do.

The Athletic Performance Lab Profile includes:

  • Complete Blood Count (indicator of general health)
  • Iron Panel (measures level of iron in the bloodstream)
  • Ferritin test (show amount of stored iron in the body)
