Exeter, NH – Access Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics would like to thank Runner’s Alley Portsmouth for their support of our sports concussion program. Runner’s Alley donated three Polar Heart Rate Monitors which can be used by concussion patients as they work toward a return to play. A revolutionary treatment technique, sub-symptom threshold exercise training allows an athlete to participate in physical activity at a controlled level that will not exacerbate symptoms. Studies have shown that this innovative method can help accelerate the recovery process over more conservative treatments involving complete rest.
Allowing an athlete to participate in some level of physical activity can stimulate both a physical and mental recovery. The heart rate monitors donated by Runner’s Alley are being loaned out to patients free of charge for use during their recovery.
