Sports Medicine: Keeping Safety in the Forefront

Kingswood Oxford’s certified athletic trainers are on-site for each practice and game. As such, they identify, assess, and treat student-athletes. If needed, athletic trainers make physician referrals. Mindful of the risk of concussions, our team of athletic trainers manages the school’s ImPACT concussion testing program. This widely-used computerized evaluation system provides a neurocognitive assessment to determine an athlete’s ability to play (or not) after a concussion. Kingswood Oxford is also affiliated with Elite Sports Medicine, Connecticut’s premier sports-related treatment center.
