Keeping Parents Informed on Concussions


Certified AT shares how utilizing HEADCHECK has improved her ability to communicate with parents of a concussed athlete.

Meet Manuela ‘Manny’ Alvarez, a passionate user of the HEADCHECK platform. She is the Certified Athletic Therapist for Crystal Beach Academy, a Fort Erie, Ontario school with teams competing in the NAPHL and USPHL Elite. Having initially enjoyed using the platform as a team user, Manny now raves about the experience and control she gains as an administrator. The impact on improving communication within her Academy, and specifically with parents, has been remarkable.

As an administrator overseeing multiple teams, Manny has found a powerful tool that not only streamlines concussion management but also provides invaluable communication benefits. She shares, “I love it. I loved it as a user, and now that I have full control over the system, I love it even more.” HEADCHECK proves indispensable when it comes to explaining decisions to parents, such as pulling an athlete from play. Manny adds, “I can finally show the parents why, and it makes them understand the situation so much better.”

Manny’s story is similar to many users who find themselves responsible for communicating injuries with concerned parents. Her experience demonstrates that the benefits of the HEADCHECK platform extend beyond the functionality to the real-life scenarios that users encounter.
