Still, if the kid is still dizzy, it has to be a concussion no????
You're right it's manditory paramedic procedure to support the head and neck area called c-spine control. It has to be done every time there is a suspected head/neck injury. Looking at them taking A Kost off the ice I didn't see them doing anything with his shoulders it looked to me as if the trainer had his hands supporting his neck on the front and back.
