What we can do

BASELINE TESTING

a series of physical and cognitive tests that measure healthy brain function before a sports season starts – and prior to an injury. 

POST CONCUSSION TESTING

 baseline test results are compared with the concussion tests performed after the injury. This helps the health care provider see if the concussion has caused any problems with brain function which helps determine the rehabilitation plan.

REHABILITATION

cognitive and physical exercises will be given, determined by testing results compared to the baseline.
