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 complimentary consultation instead of a baseline test.
- Brain Fog
- Depression and/or Anxiety
- Easily Get Lost or Confused
- Headaches and/or Migraines
- Lack of Focus
- Loss of Balance or Dizziness
- Loss of Smell
- Mood Changes
- Poor Concentration
- Sensitivity to Light and/or Noise
- Short or Long Term Memory Loss
- Slowness in Thinking and Processing
- Visual Disturbance
Why is concussion baseline testing important?
There have been many studies done that show the importance of baseline tests, particularly baseline tests that can objectively measure what is happening in the brain and body. Here, at Cognitive FX, we utilize C3Logix. There is a lot of research backing its approach and effectiveness in testing for a concussion following the baseline test.
The goal of a baseline test is to have something to compare yourself to or your child to if an injury occurs later. When an individual repeats the baseline test after an injury, they may not do as well as they did on the original baseline test.
This can indicate a concussion and will help you make better decisions about when you or your child should return to play and/or to regular activities such as school, or work.
If you are showing the signs and symptoms of a concussion on a second baseline test, we may recommend getting an fNCI scan to more conclusively diagnosis your concussion and give you some options for a unique EPIC treatment protocol. This would be determined following a complimentary consultation with Dr. Fong.
What is the difference between a C3Logix Baseline Test and an fNCI?
C3Logix concussion baseline testing uses an iPad App to ask a series of questions. You will also participate in very basic activities to test and measure your balance. A baseline test typically takes around 30 minutes.
An fNCI is an imaging technology we use to diagnose a concussion. This imaging is used to direct individual treatment protocols during our EPIC Treatment Program. To complete the fNCI it can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. You can learn more about fNCI technology and its applications and uses here.
