We have pre-concussion screenings
About our pre-concussion screening process for your child athlete who is 10 years or older.
Baseline Testing: The ideal way to manage concussions is to have a baseline screen to measure against A baseline battery of tests allows data to be gathered regarding an athlete’s normal brain function so that in the event the athlete suffers a concussion, their concussed brain function can be compared to their normal brain function to ensure a safe return to their sport.
Our Testing Program: We use both SCAT2 testing to understand multiple measures of cognitive function and we also perform tests to measure dual functions of the brain while actively using our OptoJump technology.
Post Concussion Testing: In the event you or your child has suffered a concussion or you suspect a concussion, even in the absence of baseline tests, you should consider testing with us so that we can monitor your child’s return to play very closely.The most significant risk your child has is to suffer a second concussion before the first concussion has resolved.
