Can anyone clear up the rules for OHSAA's concussion protocol? Last week, my DD was determined by the opposing school's trainer that she had a concussion. We spent the weekend relaxing, and followed up with our school's trainer on Monday, to see about steps to return to play. We were told we needed to first see our physician, then she could begin the 6 day gradual return to play. Physician stated she could not be cleared by him, until at least 7 days without a headache, then begin the 6 day process. If this is the case, a single concussion, even minor as in this case, would effectively remove play for 2 weeks minimum. Is the doctor correct? The trainer states she only needs to be free of headache for 24 hours, then she can begin the 6 day process. If the trainer is correct, can we just go to another physician to have them signoff so she can begin the return to play procedure? I wouldn't think returning to the same doctor stating "no, our trainer says ..." would be beneficial either. Also, why is the school's trainer recognized as having the ability to diagnose a concussion, but not have the ability to test and allow for return. There seems to be no real procedure a doctor will do besides ask if she has had headaches, or any recurring symptoms? I would think the trainer would be able to determine this as well.
