CONCUSSION SERVICES

BASELINE IMPACT TEST

The baseline ImPACT™ test is a neurocognitive, computer-based test that measures an athlete’s verbal and visual memory, processing speed, and reaction time. In the event that an athlete does sustain a concussion, this is a very useful tool for physicians to use in determining when it is safe for that athlete to return to sports. Team rates are also available.

This assessment is 60 minutes and encompasses a full concussion prevention evaluation including clinical measurements involving neck range of motion, neck and core strength, and balance testing.  An individualized prescription of appropriate injury prevention exercises will also be provided.

 

CONCUSSION PREVENTION ASSESSMENT

 

CONCUSSION PREVENTION TRAINING

These training sessions complement our Concussion Prevention Assessment and focus primarily on range of motion and strength exercises of the neck and core, balance, and proprioception training, as well as task-related skills that can practically be applied to sport. Each session is 30 minutes. 

CONCUSSION RETURN-TO-PLAY PROGRAM

Our clinical testing is derived from evidence-based research to monitor and assess an individual’s post-concussion recovery and symptoms. Beginning with light aerobic activities, the athlete will slowly be introduced to sport-specific exercises and drills as their symptoms and exercise tolerance improves. The progression is dictated by a clinical symptom questionnaire along with bike and/or treadmill assessments carefully monitoring the athlete’s weekly progression with special attention to safety until symptoms are no longer reported. Each session is 45 minutes.

In addition to the programs offered above, you can learn more about concussions, how to recognize if you have one, and what to do if you get one. Dr. Michael O’Brien, director of the Sports Concussion Clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital, explains in this video.
