1. What is a concussion baseline test?
A concussion baseline test is done before you are injured. This test will help you understand and know your state of physical ability and your brain function levels. A concussion baseline test will measure a few things including processing speed, current symptoms, pain levels, balance, and physical abilities.
If it is before the start of your sport’s new season or you’re just getting started, now is the perfect time to get a baseline test. If you or your child are beginning to play sports, this is also an excellent time to get this test.
Typically a baseline test is taken before being injured. Your baseline gives us data to compare to if you get hurt later on.
If you have been injured and after 30 days you are still experiencing any of the symptoms listed below you may be looking for a consultation instead of a baseline test.
