Concussion Management Program

The Sports Medicine department believes that the health and safety of our student-athletes are of paramount importance. We strive to stay informed about current research practices and to support causes we believe will lead us to a better understanding of concussions. The concussion management protocol ensures that our student-athletes return safely to academics and athletic competition. View details of the Concussion Management Program.
We are proud to announce that the National Athletic Trainers Association has awarded CSUS the Safe Sports School Award. This award is given to secondary schools with athletic health care facilities that are in compliance with local, state, and federal regulations to ensure that quality healthcare services are delivered.

First Aid Basics

What do I do if I have a Soft Tissue Injury?
If a student has suffered an acute injury to a muscle, tendon, ligament, or other soft tissue, in order to properly treat the injury, please follow the basic first aid principle - RICE.
  • Rest Avoid moving or using the injured body part as well as the joint above and below the injured site.
  • Ice During the inflammation stage, ~3 days following the initial injury, apply ice 20 minutes every one to two hours to the injured area.
  • Compress Wrap an elastic wrap around the injured site, apply with moderate compression. Leave the wrap on 24/7, unless you are icing.
  • Elevate Keep the affected area above the level of the heart (if possible) to reduce swelling.
Things to remember
  • Do not leave ice bag on for more than 20 minutes.
  • If you use a gel pack, ALWAYS place the pack in a pillowcase/towel. NEVER place it directly on the skin!
Go to a medical doctor if you experience unbearable pain or throbbing, or if you experience a loss in sensation to the injured area for more than 20 minutes.
