Back to all Experts

Sustaining a concussion can be devastating to an athlete. Research suggests focusing on agility, vision training, balance/reaction skills, neck/core muscle strength and spatial awareness can decrease the risk of a sports-related concussion.

Although a concussion can occur in any sport, the highest risk youth sports include soccer, lacrosse, football and basketball. This 6-week program, developed by sports medicine experts at The University of Kansas Health System, is designed for middle school and high school athletes, who want to reduce the risk of concussion and improve their sport performance.

Program includes

  • Individual comprehensive initial and final evaluations by trained medical professionals
  • Two 60-minute training sessions per week for 6 weeks
  • Individualized, progressive neck and core strength training home program
  • Mobile app access to track individual progress and view home program videos
  • Multifactorial training specific to athletes’ sports
