Free sports medicine clinic at ALMH

All school-age athletes, from kindergarten through college, participating in summer league sports are eligible for a free consultation with ALMH SportsCare Services. Now through August, appointments are available with athletic trainers regarding any sports-related injuries.

Call ALMH Rehabilitation Services at 217-732-5065 with questions or to schedule a free consultation.

ImPACT works with athletes at risk

All athletes at risk for sports-related concussions are encouraged to participate in the ImPACT concussion management program at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital. The program is a research-based, scientifically proven method of concussion management that allows an athlete to return to competition safely and in a timely manner after they sustain a concussion.

Athletes will take a neurological test before a concussion occurs, and these results can then be compared to post-concussion tests to map the progress of rehabilitation.

The cost to participate in the program is minimal, and the benefits can be life-changing. Visit or call ALMH Rehabilitation Services at 217-732-5065 with questions.
