Baseline Concussion Testing
The MedStar Orthopedic Institute Concussion Program recommends athletes take a baseline neurocognitive assessment as part of a pre-participation physical exam.
If you play sports, it makes sense to have baseline test results on file in the event of a concussion. The MedStar Orthopedic Institute Concussion Program uses ImPACT testing, which is a computerized program that evaluates how a brain functions. Baseline test results can be compared to post-injury test results and help clinicians determine the extent of any injuries and when normal activity can be safely resumed.
We are available to administer the baseline testing on-site for groups or teams, and individual testing is conducted in a number of convenient locations throughout the central Maryland and Washington, D.C. regions.
To schedule baseline testing, call 410-248-8398.
MedStar Orthopedic Institute specialists use the results of post-concussion testing to develop an individualized concussion management program to monitor and track your recovery. The post-concussion program provides a state-of-the-art, medically based plan with clear guidelines to support timely and safe return-to-play and appropriate accommodations for school or work.
