Does your child play a contact sport? Did you know there are no requirements for baseline concussion testing in athletics below the collegiate level? This can be a disturbing bit of information for many parents, especially because concussions can be very harmful to developing brains. Even though a test is not required for children and teens, it doesn’t mean a test is not a good idea. That’s why NeuraPerformance has taken their Dynavision D2™ technology to the streets of Front Range Denver with our mobile baseline concussion testing program.
What is baseline concussion testing?
A baseline concussion test is a preliminary test taken by athletes to gather pre-cognitive data before youth engage in sports. This test allows brain activity to be compared throughout the season to help detect a concussion at any level. After a head injury, an athlete will head to the exam room to test the brain post-injury. With the baseline test results in hand, it is very easy to see any damage and how it can best be treated.
Each person is unique, which is why a baseline test is integral to the health of a young athlete. A post-injury test only provides limited data because there is nothing for comparison.
It’s only $35 to get a baseline concussion test and set up your young athlete for good brain health in the future.
