Concussions are being taken more seriously than ever with the likes of former quarterback Brett Favre admitting having memory loss as a result of injuries on the field. As a part of continuing his education, First Care Health Center physical therapist Joe Karas attended a sports symposium sponsored by Sanford Orthopedics & Sports Medicine earli- er this year to learn about some of the latest re- search on sports injuries. The symposium featured a tendonitis expert, GSS gains new Photo: Submitted Above: The Good Samaritan Society, Park River's new vehicle is a carry over, 2012 Ford Cargo Van. a sports doctor for the military academies, a cou- ple of orthopedic surgeons who do treatments of shoulder injuries, a head sports trainer from a ma- jor university and concussion doctors. Karas said that they discussed being prepared on the field and having plans in place to treat head and back injuries as well as new rules to go by on concussions such as the three concussions and out rule. He added that one of the speakers that he found most interesting was the tendonitis expert from Australia who works with the Australian Olympic teams. He said that tendons are ex- tremely hard to treat. She said that it takes a com- bination of rest and exercise to get tendons back ! transportation PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Good Samaritan Society, Park River, purchased a new wheel- chair accessible van for its res- idents. This was made possible due to the generosity of many donors in both Park River and the surrounding communities, as well as some fundraising events held by the Good Sam. The new vehicle is a carry over, 2012 Ford Cargo Van. It is equipped with a wide base rear lift, making it easy to transport any size of wheelchair.

"Sometimes with injured athletes it's a mat- ter of managing the injury," Karas said explaining the importance of building back up slowly to re- turn to play because studies show that the only way to predict the odds of a person becoming in- jured is if they have sustained a previous injury. At First Care, Karas said, he can take direct access cases, which means the patient can come to him directly, however, he prefers to have a doc- tor's order to verify that the injury isn't some- thing more serious. He said that he likes that doc- tor, physical therapist relationship because they can work together to access the patient's pain. "It takes time to heal," he said. "If you're look- ing for the magic potion, it's not out there." When he looks at a patient to find the source of their pain, he said, he starts at the feet, then the knees, then the hip and pelvis area, check- ing for tightness and weakness. One thing he has found in his experience has been young athletes straining themselves to achieve visual results in the weight room.
