Officials with the Cass County Health System are inviting all parents, coaches and athletes to attend an educational session called “Back to School, Back to Play” on Sunday, August 16th, from 4 until 5 p.m. Laura Hickman, DPT, ATC, and Erin Johnson, PTA, will cover topics including concussions, warm-up exercises, mobility drills, stretches, and preventing overuse injuries.
Hickman says “We really want these messages to get to our student athletes before they’re already dealing with a concussion or an overuse injury. If we can better prepare them at the start of the season, then they’ll perform to their best ability while reducing their risk of injury.”
