Baseline concussion testing is important for all athletes not just football players! ⚽️🏐🏀🏈⚾️🏒🏂🤼♀️🤸♀️⛹️♂️
Dr. Lindsey had a concussion while at Western Michigan University, and did not have a baseline test making it difficult to assess when she was ready to return to play. She was unable to practice for over 1 month. If she would’ve had a baseline, she could have been retested to see if she was at her pre-injury numbers instead of guessing.
The majority of area high schools require concussion baseline testing for participation in sports, but it is important for athletes younger than high school and club athletes as well.
We can perform baseline testing in our office, or we can come to you for groups!
