Get a Baseline Test Before a Concussion Happens
With 3.8 million sports related concussions each year in the United States, the first, and by far the most important step in properly managing concussions comes before the injury happens. Even before an athlete steps foot on the field!
A baseline test allows us to measure the areas of brain function, so if an athlete gets a concussion, we can compare their post-injury state to their baseline parameters to make an accurate diagnosis and determine when they are safe to return to their sport.
