The Importance of Sports Physicals & a Concussion Q&A

With another school year less than a month away, it brings back the excitement of school sports. Area school districts are holding their respective sports meetings and putting great emphasis on making sure their kids are prepared for their upcoming seasons both academically and physically. Part of being physically prepared is having a sports physical done by a medical professional and having the basic knowledge regarding concussions and the proper way to deal with and treat them when an athlete suffers one. Listen on Friday the 24th as we talk to Dr. Kevin Ree from the Sanford Worthington Medical Clinic. Dr. Ree will fill us in on just how important it is for an athlete to get a sports physical. He'll also give us the low down on what a concussion is and the current technology we have to help us monitor and treat them.
