Baseline Before Sport

It's Brain Injury Awareness Month - Have You Thought About Baselines?


What is a Multimodal Baseline Testing?


Baseline Testing is Defined As:

A series of physical and cognitive tests that measures healthy brain function before a sports season starts. As symptoms of concussion will often disappear days to weeks before the brain has fully recovered, having baseline information may provide healthcare practitioners with valuable information on brain recovery that may help to inform safer return to learn, work and play decisions. - https://completeconcussions.com/services-courses/baseline-testing/

Baseline testing is recommended for athletes who participate in contact or high-speed sports.. however, TBI's can occur in many different scenarios. Falls off of bikes, ladders, trips and head bumps can result in concussions.



You get your eyes, teeth & body checked up every year, why not your brain??



What Does a Baseline Test Do for a Concussion Injury?

Baseline testing measures where your brain should be at a healthy level. If you receive a concussion your PT will test you and compare your current scores to your healthy baseline levels.
