There are serious consequences caused by delayed, inappropriate or insufficient treatment of hockey injuries.
Without convenient access to an sports medicine physician, experienced sports physiotherapist or certified athletic therapist, even the smallest injury can result in the end of a season or career for a hockey player.
It has been suggested that for every concussion that a child reports, they may have had up to eleven prior concussions that they didn’t report. If you’re in doubt about any injury your child has sustained, keep them out.
Prompt action is the solution and that’s why I encourage seeing a sports medicine physician, experienced sports physiotherapist or certified athletic therapist as soon as possible and- equally as important – before returning to play.
