Concussion Assessment & Treatment

What is a Concussion
& Why Should We Treat It?

A concussion is a disturbance in neurological function following an impact to the head/neck area. When a concussion is sustained, a neurological imbalance leads to a deficit in energy as well as a decrease in blood flow to the brain. During this phase, individuals are susceptible to further damage and/or rapid deterioration of brain cells if another impact were to occur. 

We no longer treat concussions by "waiting it out in a dark room for 2 weeks." Studies now show that individuals that were assessed by a health care professional within the first 24-48 hours had less symptom intensity and faster return to play.

Baseline Testing

Baseline testing is a series of tests that assess multiple areas pertaining to brain function. Baseline tests are for the healthy, un-injured athlete to use as a tool for post-concussion assessments and return to play.

At CORE, we utilize the latest evidence-based testing to ensure we can accurately diagnose your concussion and get back to play as safe and quick as possible.
