Concussion Management Plan


This content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding concussions or any other medical conditions.

 

Saskatoon Adult Soccer recommends that players be aware of the signs of concussions.

The following elements should be assessed for all athletes who are suspected of having a concussion.

If any of the Red Flags are noted after receiving high force to the body or a direct or indirect blow to the head, the athlete should, if able, be immediately and safely removed from participation and evaluated by a physician or licensed healthcare professional.

 

ASSESSMENT STEPS

 

STEP 1: RED FLAGS

                Neck pain or tenderness                                                       Vomiting

                Double vision                                                                         Seizure or convulsion

                Severe or increasing headache                                             Confusion

                Increasingly restless, agitated, combative                          Deteriorating/loss of consciousness

                Weakness or tingling / burning in arms or legs                  Balance issues

 

STEP 2: OBSERVABLE SIGNS

Lying motionless on the playing surface

Balance / gait difficulties / motor incoordination: stumbling, slow / laboured movements

Disorientation / confusion / inability to respond appropriately to STEP 3 questions

Blank or vacant look

Facial injury after head trauma

 

STEP 3: MEMORY ASSESSMENT QUESTIONS

What happened?                                                                       Which soccer centre are we at today?

Which half is it now?                                                                 Are we winning?

What team did you play last week?                                         What day of the week is it?

 

STEP 4: MONITOR FOR 2-4 HOURS FROM INCIDENT

The first 2-4 hours from the incident is often when symptoms appear. Monitor for the following:

Headache / Pressure                   Blurred Vision                              More emotional / Sadness / Anxious

More Irritable                               Neck Pain                                     Sensitivity to Light or Noise

Balance Issues                             Drowsiness / Fatigue                  Dizziness

Difficulty Remembering               Difficulty Concentrating              Do not Feel Right / Foggy

 

STEP 5: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 2-4 HOURS FROM INCIDENT

Do not leave athlete alone!                                                                     Do not drink!    

Do not allow them to go home alone!                                                    Do not drive!

Do not use recreational or prescription drugs!

If symptoms are present, we recommend you seek advice from a healthcare professional.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Play should not resume for at least 24 hours.                                     

Most adults tend to heal within 10 - 21 days.

Children typically take longer to heal (14 - 28 days).

Continuing to partake prior to being healed will prolong symptoms.    

Subsequent concussions may take longer to heal. Concussions and their effects are cumulative.

A hit to the head is not the only way to be concussed. The force of being hit elsewhere may also cause a concussion.
