The best way to determine how your brain is functioning is to gather information before an incident occurs. If we have this information we can determine when you have completely recovered from a concussion and this is extremely valuable in your rehabilitation and return to play. Prior to completing your baseline testing, please complete the following forms:
If you are unlucky enough to suffer a concussion, it is important we see you for follow up testing as soon as possible, and ideally within 48 hours of the injury. In doing so, we can accurately compare your pre-season baseline information to that of your post-concussion results. This information is critical towards guiding the appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan, even before you have seen your physician.If you suffer a concussion, the first thing to do is contact us at 1(800) CON-CUSS to be scheduled immediately for injury screening prior to seeing your physician. Once this is completed, we will share the results and our recommendations for treatment directly with your physician.Please note, if our recommendations also include modifications for work, school or sport, these will also be communicated as part of the recovery plan.
