Concussions are an injury to the brain that, if not dealt with appropriately, may cause long-lasting damage.  They are a serious issue and require immediate care and attention. Research shows that having a Baseline Test prior to a concussion helps clinicians make Return to Play decisions with a higher level of efficiency, precision and safety.

Why YOU need a Baseline Test!

1.         A Baseline test provides objective information from healthy athletes prior to receiving a concussion. 

2.         Tests include balance, reaction time, strength, memory, concentration, visual tracking, processing speed, and provides doctors and clinicians with an indication of how your brain works when healthy. 

3.         In the event of a concussion, athletes are re-tested and compared to their baseline results in order to make a proper diagnosis as well as safe return to play decisions.

4.         Baseline testing provides doctors and clinicians with a more accurate determination of brain recovery following injury.
