Concussion Information & Resources
Submitted By Kelly Farnsworth on Tuesday, September 11, 2018
Concussion injuries in sport have received a great deal of awareness, confusion, research and sometimes conflicting information in the recent past.

We all hope that your player does not suffer a concussion, but should one occur, receiving timely and appropriate treatment is paramount as the health of our players is of utmost concern for HMHA.

On the following page is a list of 3 local Health Care Providers who have experience in concussion prevention and treatment.

HMHA recognizes that families may already have Health Care Providers in place should a family member suffer a concussion. The following is for information purposes only and in no way suggests which type of treatment should be sought in the event of a brain injury. The only guidelines provided by HMHA focus on the injured person receiving treatment and following a Return to Play Protocol. General information on concussions, along with our Return to Play Protocol can be found on this website under the Trainer information section. Additionally, the OMHA website at https://www.omha.net has information on concussions and guidelines around Return to Play for our bench staff and our families to access.

Head injuries in hockey can happen at any age, division or level. There is an increased risk for these types of injuries in our Bantam and Midget Rep/AE divisions as body checking is an additional part of the game at these levels.
