Baseline Testing for Concussion
If you play sports, it makes sense to have baseline test results on file in the event of a concussion. The MedStar Sports Medicine Concussion Program is a Credentialed Consultant of ImPACT testing. ImPACT is a computerized program that evaluates how a brain functions. Baseline test results can be compared to post-injury test results to help clinicians determine when it is safe to resume normal activities. The test usually takes less than half an hour to complete.
The MedStar Sports Medicine Concussion Program recommends athletes take a baseline neurocognitive assessment as part of a pre-participation physical exam.
Call MedStar Sports Medicine immediately at 888.44.SPORT (888.447.7678) to schedule post-concussion testing. The results will be used to develop an individualized concussion management program to monitor and track your recovery. The post-concussion program provides a state-of-the-art, medically based plan with clear guidelines to support timely and safe return-to-play and appropriate accommodations for school or work.
The MedStar Sports Medicine Concussion Program is available to administer the baseline testing on-site for groups or teams. Individual testing is conducted in a number of convenient locations throughout the Maryland and Washington, D.C. region.
