HB 2390 Relating to Concussions Sustained by Athletes

VOTE: NO – Died In Committee
Status (overview) of bill:https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2017R1/Measures/Overview/HB2390


This bill allows chiropractic and naturopathic physicians to provide release for athlete who sustained concussion or is suspected of sustaining concussion

Personal Choice and Responsibility
The bill expands the responsibility beyond the training they are provided with. After discussing this with an physician I was told “neither has appropriate medical training, unequivocally no”. Further discussions with a neurological nurse and two staff members of the Oregon Medical Association confirmed what the physician told me.

Limited Government
The government is exceeding its authority by not researching the qualifications of the physicians named in this legislation.
