Concussion Baseline Screening

Pre-season measurements of cognitive function (short term memory, orientation, delayed recall, balance, etc.) and neurological screen is valuable to help determine when an athlete can safely return to play in the event that he/she has a concussion during the season. This testing can be useful for interpreting post-injury test scores as well as to reduce risk for recurrent head injury.

Program information: 

  1. Athletes may have ImPACT testing at their school
  2. 40 minute 1-on-1 private sessions
  3. Screen of neck motion and arm strength
  4. Balance Error Scoring System (BESS Test)
  5. Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT-5)
  6. Athletes may have ImPACT testing at their school
 

Cost:

  1. $100 for one-time assessment and 
  2. No insurance required 

 

After testing, the athlete and his/her family will be provided with baseline data that an overseeing pediatrician, physician, or athletic trainer can use to help determine when the athlete can return to play. This information cannot be used to diagnose a concussion! If an injury is suspected, the athlete should see a primary care provider as soon as possible to establish a treatment plan.
