MBSH gets football player back in the game

Football is Joey Rigdon’s life passion.  The 17-year-old Sullivan High School senior played varsity football all four years of his high school, starting for the last three years as a running back. After the 2013 season, Joey received two awards: first team all-region and second team all-conference. It was a feat that seemed nearly impossible following a major knee injury that he sustained during the 2012 season.

Missouri Baptist Rehab Staff assess sports related injuries

At Sullivan Sports Fitness and Rehab Center, one of our primary goals as we work with local high school athletes who have sustained sports related injuries is to get them back on the field, court or track "better, faster and stronger."  In an effort to expand the services that we provide and increase our understanding of sports related injuries, Melissa West, Occupational Therapist, recently attended an ImPACT Training Workshop.  ImPACT is a computer based assessment tool that can be used to help identify possible deficits and guide recovery intervention.  The workshop emphasized that concussions are an "energy problem" and as a result often affect the body systems that require the most energy including vision and the vestibular system.  The class also suggested that high school athletes rarely recover from a concussion in one week while professional athletes typically recover faster.  Sullivan Sports Fitness and Rehabilitation Center Physical and Occupational Therapists attend most Sullivan High School athletic events in an effort to assess sports related injuries when they occur and facilitate a more proactive approach to recovery.
