Hi AOASM! We're wrapping up April with a "Play Them or Sit Them?" scenario. Let us know what you would do in the comments!
You are covering a softball game when you see an outfielder crash into the fence before she is able to stop while try to catch a pop fly. She tries to start getting up on her own by the time you reach her on the field. She states her neck feels like it’s on fire and her toes are tingling in both feet. She can move her arms and legs and her strength is normal. Do you allow her to continue to play? What diagnosis concerns you and what would you advise the athlete?
